Worthy but flawed

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

1994 / 86m - USA

Goofy comedy that rests completely on the shoulders of Jim Carrey. It's a good thing Carrey goes completely over the top then, because that's exactly what this film needed. It's still not the greatest comedy ever, but it's amusing, short and good for a couple of chuckles. A solid option if you're desperate for some laughs.

Dubious filler

A typical Robin Williams product. The titular character is an annoying creep, the story is borderline offensive in its stupidity. Some stand-alone scenes are passable, but they drown in a sea of sentimental garbage. In the end I sympathized with the people who were trying to stop Adams, I'm sure that wasn't the point.

Irritation overload

The Nutty Professor

Shallow and simplistic comedy that's little more than a hacky cut-and-paste job hinging on the performance of Eddie Murphy. Sadly he's not good enough to save the film, so all that's left is 90 minutes of lazy, predictable jokes. It's been a while since I watched a comedy this bad, I guess that's also an accomplishment.
