Snowflake, the Miami Dolphins professional mascot is kidnapped just days before the Super Bowl. Now the authorities turn to the eccentric detective specializing in pets to get the dolphin back before the big game.
This may be Jim Carrey at his finest (in a physical comedy role). The humor is often crude and silly, but I can’t help but laugh. The voices, the physical stunts, the energy of it all. It’s infectious in a good way I think. The comedy is very light, doesn’t have any deep message about society. It’s stupid fun and that’s okay (stupidity like anything is best in moderation).
