Song From the OST


  • he voice was something Carrey used in his stand up routine. The “All righty then” was the catch phrase of one of his stand up characters and after the lines from the script weren’t feeling right, he added it to the script and read through it again using that voice for all the lines.
  • The short scene during the party where Ace pulls the cellist’s arm as he walks by, making him produce a false tone, was improvised by Jim Carrey.
  • The original concept is the Pet Detective character was a bumbling idiot, until Jim Carrey was cast and his character was rewritten.
  • The giant hook Ace used to knock out two of Einhorn’s henchmen was originally supposed to knock their heads off, the filmmakers decided to quickly cut away so they’d survive instead.
  • Jim Carrey had his own personal chef on the set of the film, who also was required to prepare meals for Carrey’s pet iguana.
