Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

Question: In the UK (Region 2) version of the film, the scene in which Ace pretends to be Hans the dolphin trainer was removed. Can anyone tell me the specific reason why it was removed? Also do any other versions around the world (notably US and Australian versions) remove the scene?

Chosen answer: That scene was cut originally by the director Tom Shadyack because the scene did not support the story and thought it slowed the film down. (And the scene was cut from the US version as well.) It was added back later in TV versions of the film. Fan enjoyed the scene so much they asked it be put back in the film version. I know the DVD has it because I own it. It's hilarious!

Question: What's the make and model of the car Ace drives in the movie?

Chosen answer: He's seen driving a 1987 Chevy Caprice and a 1972 Chevy Monte Carlo.

Question: Do the laces being in really make that much of a difference, or is it just Finkle projecting blame?

Chosen answer: Both. Finkle is obviously trying to blame someone else for the missed kick, but kickers do have specific positions, circumstances that help their accuracy. Some kickers kick barefooted, others have a special kicking shoe, others have specific positioning of the ball.

Question: Although they only show Ray Finkle/ Lois Einhorn exposed to the cops, what exactly would be his/her comeuppance? Would he/she be sent back to Shady Acres Mental Hospital or to a state prison?

Chosen answer: That would depend entirely on how she and her lawyer chose to plead, and what the judge and jury decided. It's outside the scope of the movie.

Question: How exactly does an escaped male mental patient who's posing as a woman a) work as a police officer without having violent mood swings most of the time, b) acquire money for breast implants and c) avoid a single physical examination that would have exposed his penis?

Chosen answer: Just because someone has been institutionalized doesn't mean they have mood swings. If this was a manic episode (which it appears to be) there wouldn't be any swings at all. Just manic all the time. It wouldn't last forever, but its different for everyone. As for the money, plastic surgery can be financed! and we don't know if s/he had money stashed away beforehand. And for the last question, I just don't know. Not very likely, but some people get through lots of physical testing that shouldn't. Possibly documents were forged? Just speculation on my part.

Mistakes

When Ace rescues the dog and replaces it with a toy dog, the toy dog is in an impossible position. Ace had to place it there when the door was still open, but if the door was closed after that the man would have knocked it over.

Trivia

When Ace enters the club to meet the guy with long blond hair and glasses, the song playing is "Hammer Smashed Face" by death metal band Cannibal Corpse. Jim Carrey is a fan of Cannibal Corpse and insisted they appear in the movie since it takes place in Florida, the "capital" of death metal.
