** Originally Ace wasn't written to be animal-related, but more of a generic Sherlock Holmes parody. Screenwriter Jack Bernstein came up with the pet detective idea after watching a Creator/DavidLetterman sketch about pet owners.
** Ace was originally imagined as a bumbling [[Film/ThePinkPanther Inspector Clouseau]]-type of character, but after Jim Carrey was cast, the script was retrofitted to fit his over-the-top performance style.

** JenniferAniston told a story a few years ago about visiting CourteneyCox and bringing a copy of ''Ace Ventura'' to watch. Courteney refused to watch the film, suggesting she either doesn't like to watch her own work, like Jim Carrey, or that she just doesn't like the film much.

** Jim Carrey allegedly dislikes the sequel, while many fans consider it to be funnier than the original. Of course, funnier doesn't always mean better; it certainly cashed in on dirty humour. According to Jeff Daniels, Carrey had explained to him the reasons why he didn't like the sequel much. He disliked the whole "Ace is afraid of bats" angle, as he found it to be a cheap AssPull, and even fought with the director about changing the script so that Ace was merely ''allergic'' to bats. Carrey was also very nervous about the film's depiction of the native characters, and that people might take offense to them. He's even surprised the film hasn't been outright banned! He wouldn't make another sequel to one of his films until ''Film/DumbAndDumberTo'', which unfortunately was ''far'' less well-received.

* CreatorBacklash: Despite being his StarMakingRole, Creator/JimCarrey does not like Ace Ventura. Carrey was displeased with the sequel, causing him to swear off ever doing a sequel for any of his characters (although he has since done the ''Film/DumbAndDumber'' sequel ''Dumb and Dumber To''). This had an arguably lasting impact on his career as well since this role is seen as the reason why [[AwardSnub he's yet to get nominated for an Oscar.]]

]] Of course, Jim Carrey famously dislikes watching his own performances in anything.
