And entrant #2 in the comedy pantheon
Ace Ventura, Pet Detective
Jim Carrey is fantastic. His uniqueness means that he is loved and loathed in equal measures. The people who loathe him are, simply out, wrong.
Although Dumb and Dumber is marginally the better film, the character of Ace Ventura is phenomenal.
Here are some Ace Ventura quotes:
Ace: Mmm, this fruit paste is delicious and the pottery is lovely.
Ouda: It's made from guano.
Ace: Guano! Why's that sounding so familiar?
[Ace starts licking the remains of the fruit paste from the bottom of the bowl]
Fulton Greenwall: Bat droppings!
[Ace drops the bowl spitting the remains of the paste and wiping off his tongue]
Fulton Greenwall: Guano is their main raw material, they're using it to made a lot of things in the village.
Ace: That's a lovely fur you're wearing. Perhaps I could find you some slippers made from the skins of innocent and defenseless baby seals!
Ace Ventura: If I'm not back in five minutes... just wait longer.
[Ace Ventura just got his car started]
Ace Ventura: It's ALIVE. IT'S ALIVE.
Melissa: You know, you're just mad because your stupid little pebble theory didn't work out and you don't know how to express your anger.
Ace Ventura: Oh yeah? And you're ugly.
