Includes - Santa's Workshop (1932) Pluto's Christmas Tree (1952) The Small One (1978) Mickey's Christmas Carol (1983) Santa's Workshop No synopsis available. Pluto's Christmas Tree In this "Mickey Mouse" cartoon, Mickey and his dog Pluto head out on a snowy evening to cut down their Christmas tree. As it happens, the tree selected to occupy Mickey's living room is the residence of those capricious chipmunks Chip and Dale. Deciding to have some fun at Pluto's expense, the Chips hide in the tree during the decoration process and cheerfully chow down on the candy canes. Then they wreak havoc with the Christmas lights and ornaments, as Pluto vainly tries to convince Mickey that someone is amiss. Finally C&D go into a frenzy of descruction--but Mickey's reaction is unusual indeed. A few significant cameo appearances cap this mirthsome Yuletide offering. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Small One The story of a poor boy who is forced to sell his pet donkey on the eve of the first Christmas. The new owners of the donkey become Biblical history. ~ All Movie Guide Mickey's Christmas Carol No synopsis available.

Includes - Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994), MPAA Rating: PG-13 Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls (1995), MPAA Rating: PG-13 Ace Ventura: Pet Detective When your dog, bird, or water-dwelling mammal disappears, who do you call? Ace Ventura (Jim Carrey) is a low-rent private eye who specializes in recovering lost animals, so when Snowflake, the Miami Dolphins' aquatic mascot, is kidnapped, team representative Melissa Robinson (Courtney Cox) puts Ace on the case. However, Snowflake isn't the only Miami Dolphin who has gone missing; several key members of the team also disappear, including quarterback Dan Marino (who plays himself), who is spirited away while filming a TV commercial. With the Super Bowl only two weeks away, will Ace be able to find Snowflake and the missing athletes in time to salvage the big game? Ace Ventura: Pet Detective was a surprise box office smash and catapulted manic comedian Jim Carrey to stardom. The supporting cast includes Sean Young as ill-tempered Lois Einhorn, Udo Kier as the sinister Ronald Camp, and rapper Tone Loc as Ace's detective pal Emilio (Loc also wrote and performed a song for the closing credits). ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls Overnight sensation Jim Carrey reprises his role as the eccentric detective in this follow-up to the runaway blockbuster Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. The sequel finds Ace on assignment in Africa to prevent a tribal war by saving a white bat sacred to both sides. Along the way, he nearly sleeps with a seductive African princess before her wedding, experiences astral projection with an enlightened monkey, masturbates, collects bat dung and, last but not least, is birthed by a mechanical rhino (much to the horror of an American tourist family). Often short on taste, the film is nonetheless full of good spirit and plenty of genuine belly laughs -- particularly during the fight scene with a diminutive tribal champion (Tommy Davidson, who demonstrates a gift for physical comedy equal to Carrey's). Not for every taste, Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls is either hilarious or insufferable, depending on the viewer's opinion of Carrey's unique brand of slapstick and sight gags. Please note: the opening sequence may be upsetting to younger viewers. ~ Jeremy Beday, All Movie Guide
