Jim Carrey has always been a funny comedian and most people know him from his days on In Living Color. It was Ace Ventura that ended up being his breakout hit for the mainstream audience. His comedy style in the movie somehow ended up not being annoying and came off genuinely funny in a very slapstick way. Its amazing too that the supporting cast was able to keep their composure anytime he had scenes. Despite the wacky nature, the plot works off the strength of the character and the world around him.
