I have previously mentioned that my nomination for the funniest scene in any film is the Hitler car scene in Rat Race.
My nomination for funniest movie scene #3 is the one usually referred to simply as the Rhino scene in Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls.
(What is funniest movie scene #2? I will tell you that next week).
The funny thing is that although I am not fond of Jim Carrey, I quite like some of his movies. Go figure.
Some of my Jim Carrey favourites are:
How The Grinch Stole Christmas
Dumb and Dumber
Lemony Snickert’s A Series of Unfortunate Events
Ace Ventura, Pet Detective
Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, and
Ace Ventura is a pet detective specialising in finding missing animals In the second of the Ace Ventura movies, Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, he is hired to go to Africa to find a missing sacred white owl to avoid a war between the Wachootoo and Wachati tribes.
The Rhino scene is one in which Ace uses a mechanical rhinoceros to sneak up on the villains to listen to their plans. Unfortunately his fan inside the rhinoceros ceases working, sending the temperature soaring. With further mechanical difficulties he is also unable to get out of the mechanical rhino. Death awaits unless he can escape…
