Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

Trivia: When Ace gets in the club to meet that guy with the long blond hair and the glasses, the death metal band that is playing is Cannibal Corpse and the song is called "Hammer Smashed Face". Jim Carrey is actually a fan of Cannibal Corpse and he insisted on them appearing in the movie since the movie takes place in Florida which is the "capital" of death metal.
