I thought the point was to suggest movies that were relevant to the times. Ace Ventura? Seriously? Not even close. All that does is show what an ass Jim Carrey is.
That's why I picked the movies I listed. One more would be Broadcast News w/William Hurt and Holly Hunter and Albert Brooks.
The way I looked at it was in typical conversation what is more likely to be mentioned Ace Ventura or Broadcast News? I think Ace Ventura fits more with what was laid out in the original post.
As an aside, Jim Carrey put out Ace Ventura, The Mask, and Dumb and Dumber all in 1994! Not bad...
