'Ace Ventura: Pet Detective' (1994)( John Farmer / Morgan Creek Productions )
Detective name: Ace Ventura (Jim Carrey) in "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" (1994)
Sleuthing style: A Hawaiian-style shirt, unbuttoned to reveal a white undershirt and high-waisted pants, was Ventura's favored look. His badge was readily shown with great enthusiasm a trait he brought to all his wild cases.
Claim to fame: One of the many silly-face Carrey flicks that continues to get laughs today. Unpredictable animals and a classic physical comedian are a match made in comedy heaven.
