Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

The first movie role I ever saw Jim Carey in was The Truman Show, so catching Ace Ventura on one of the Sky Movies channels at the youth hostel was a welcome chance to catch-up with the rest of the world's impressions of him.

And Ventura's extreme weirdness actually does his character a bit of a disservice. He's funny and entertaining – there's no doubt about it – but despite the film's title, he's surprisingly lacking in animal-jokes.

There's good stuff throughout this movie's throwaway story though, and I look forward to serendipitously finding the sequel on sometime.
