Seemingly clueless as to how best to utilize Carrey, or make humorous hay out of its pet-loving shamus' central character, Ventura fails to place either Carrey or Ace in the winner's circle of memorable screen crazies. Full Review

He's so over-energized from the start you keep thinking he'll wear out his welcome pronto; an hour and a half later, his lunacy is still hard to take your eyes off. [04Feb1994 Pg. F6] Full Review

Treat this project as you would a safari: It has its slow parts but the wildlife makes it worthwhile. Full Review
James Berardinelli
From the start, it's obvious that this is a vehicle for his comedy, and it mostly works -- for about ten to fifteen minutes. After that, Carrey's act gradually grows less humorous and more tiresome, and the laughter in the audience seems forced. Full Review

Austin Chronicle
Manic energy is the term that comes most readily to mind when describing Ace Ventura. Full Review
