Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

 (1994)

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

To be a Pet Detective, you have to understand both the criminals and animals. Ace Ventura goes even further... He behaves like a criminal animal. When a football team's mascot (a dolphin) is stolen just before the Superbowl, Ace Ventura is put on the case. Now, who would want to steal a dolphin, and why?

For more about Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and the Ace Ventura: Pet Detective Blu-ray release, see Ace Ventura: Pet Detective Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Jim Carrey, Courteney Cox, Sean Young, Tone Loc, Udo Kier, Troy Evans
Director: Tom Shadyac

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Shadyac's commentary is filled with praise for cinematographer Julio Macat (Wedding Crashers), with whom he would work again on The Nutty Professor. Still, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective has never been a glossy film, probably due to budget constraints (which is also a recurrent theme in Shadyac's commentary). It has the rough texture of an analog feature from the early Nineties, before the advent of digital tools gave cinematographers the luxury of adjusting shadows and improving densities and textures in post-production.

What the film does have is a wonderfully varied color palette, and Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray makes the most of it, showcasing the Florida locations, the primaries of the football and cheerleader uniforms, the various shades of plumage and fur on Ace's varied array of animal friends and, of course, Ace's own collection of loud camp shirts. The blacks of the formal wear worn at a party given by a wealthy suspect are solid and deep. Detail ranges from exceptionally good to somewhat soft in longer shots that look like they may have been somewhat underlit. The film has an obvious and identifiable grain pattern, but the grain is fine and well-handled.

In an occasional shot, I detected minute amounts of macroblocking, but they went by very quickly. A higher average bitrate than 21.93 Mbps might have been preferable, but on the whole the compressionist seems to have done a satisfactory job.


Ace Ventura: Pet Detective Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

As far as I have been able to determine, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective was released in Dolby Stereo, and the original DVD release in 1997 had a DD 2.0 track. The soundtrack was remastered in DD 5.1 for a later DVD release, which is presumably the mix presented here in lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1. It's an energetic but front-oriented track, with most of the energy supplied by Carrey's delivery and Ira Newborn's (Ferris Bueller's Day Off) hyperkinetic score, which includes a number of sly musical parodies. Several familiar songs appear on the soundtrack, but they are tied to specific story points, and naming them might be considered a spoiler.
