Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, at the Super Bowl between the Miami Dolphins and the Philadelphia Eagles, Ace is sneaking up on the albino pigeon sitting on the gatorade coolers. The Eagles' mascot walks up and shoos the bird away, but they are on the Dolphins' side of the field. Why would the Eagles mascot be on that side? (01:17:35)

Correction: There's no protocol to say mascots have to be on their own side. Some games the mascots go around the field to antagonise the team or fans and to have a bit of fun with the crowd.


Corrected entry: Film footage of the "Ray Finkle" missed field goal in the movie was authentic. It was actually a blocked field goal from Superbowl VII that was attempted by Dolphins kicker Garo Yepremian.

Correction: The footage may have had some bits from Superbowl VII (7) but is more likely from Superbowl XIX (19). This was the Superbowl discussed in the film between the Dolphins and the San Francisco 49ers. You can even see in the shot of the replays of the kicking that the opposition team is the 49ers (it's on the helmet). The kick that Garo Yepremian missed for the Dolphins was against the Washington Redskins which was in Superbowl VII.


Corrected entry: When Melissa picks up the phone to hear the news that Roger Podachter is dead, it is brightly sunny. The shot changes immediately to Podachter's apartment building, where it's now night.


Correction: Watching the scene, just before they left the sun is starting to set. By the time they got there the sun might have gone down. Besides there are two different scenes, meaning the time difference is not immediately taking place as soon as she finishes talking on the phone.


Corrected entry: When Ace is in the asylum and begins to "reverse" his previous movements and speech, you can see Melissa desperately trying to contain herself.


Correction: Why is this a mistake? She's there trying to convince the place that he's insane, but she doesn't know exactly what he's going to do. It'd be the same as you and a close friend doing the same thing.

Corrected entry: When Ace is visiting the run-down rural home of Ray Finkle's parents, Ray's mother shows Ace an 8mm film of the kick that Ray missed in the Super Bowl. The ball misses wide left, but when the referee is shown signalling that the kick is no good, he is waving his arms as though it missed wide right. (00:50:05)

Correction: This may be, but not a filmmakers' mistake. As noted in the trivia section, "Film footage of the 'Ray Finkle' missed field goal in the movie was authentic. It was actually a blocked field goal from Superbowl VII that was attempted by Dolphins kicker Garo Yepremian."


Corrected entry: When Ace reveals the true identity of Einhorn, she is surrounded by policemen. Still nobody who stands behind her sees the "thing" in the back of her panties until Ace turns her around. Then all of a sudden everyone, even the policemen now facing her front, are disgusted.

Correction: They might not have realized what it was or weren't paying attention until he pointed it out.

Corrected entry: In the scene at the Docks, Dan Marino calls Ace over to let him know about Mr. Happy tucked in Lt. Einhorn's panties, but when Ace reveals this to everyone, Marino spits and reacts like he has just noticed it. (01:14:45)

Correction: Marino pointed out the fact that something was noticeably sticking out of Einhorn's panties, but when Ace pointed out what it actually was, he had the same reaction as everyone else because he probably didn't believe Ace's accusation either.


Corrected entry: When Ace is in the tank and has found the ruby stone in the filter, he shakes it out onto his hand...from the far shot the gem is in the upper area of his hand, but when the camera comes in for a closer shot the gem is in the dead centre of his palm.

Correction: If you watch closely you can see that he clearly rolls the stone into the middle of his palm after blowing away all the other muck!

Corrected entry: In the scene where Dan Marino is shooting his ad, two men lift him up and take him away, if you look closely at 99, he is on the left hand side, yet when the two men get outside with Marino, 99 is now on the right.

Correction: They've also put him down - enough time's passed that they could have switched.

Audio problem: At the beginning, when they steal the dolphin, you hear the peel-out sound effect as if the truck was on a paved road, but they were on grass. (00:07:15)

Ace Ventura: Well, I'm not really ready for a relationship, Lois, but thank you for asking. Hey, maybe I'll give you a call sometime. Your number's still 911? All righty then.
