During a story Ace tells Melissa, he suddenly loudly barks for a brief moment. She is audibly surprised and then laughs.

Technically? There’s animal hoarding and none of the animals in the film should be in the habitats they’re in. It’s played off as not harmful. In real life these animals would all kill each other and or be extremely stressed. Any owner who does anything like this is extremely irresponsible. Also, wild animals aren’t pets, dogs shouldn’t be unsupervised around small rodents and birds, and lizards need some form of basking. :)

Dan is restrained by Ray before she kisses him - this isn't restrainment in a sexual way.

He is restrained for quite a while - the restrainment isn't too severe, just around the waist with fairly thick white rope.

"Parody of a woman"? you transphobic trash, trans women are women.

A trans woman has clothes forcible torn off her for the purpose of proving she's trans, while she stands there humiliated.

No, but it is worth mentioning that Ace catches a fired bullet in his teeth at one point. However, his teeth are not damaged in any way, and it's played for comedy.

The fall isn't shown, but the body is shown in a body bag without any trace of blood, gore or bruising. The subject is discussed first in the scene where the body is found, and then in the very next scene it's the subject of interest for everyone involved in the scene as to how he fell. The body isn't shown after the only scene it is in.

A long sequence where the protagonist spends a loooooong time trying to throw up because he kissed a trans person. Later with the big reveal that they're trans, every person in the room starts to gag and vomiting is implied. And the transphobia makes ME gag ^_^

Yes, (MAJOR SPOILERS) a whole group of bigoted people spit, scrub their tongues and vomit when Ace Ventura reveals a woman is a trans woman, but Ace himself misgenders her and pulls down her pants. The aforementioned bigoted people had made out with this woman. This film is extremely bigoted on the subject of trans people. Trans women are women, and to say otherwise is hate speech.

SPOILER -- Ace himself, upon discovering is a trans woman, says she is "a man." He also deadnames her more than once. Ace's disgusting behaviour is fully glamourised by the film, not questioned once, and he does worse than only deadnaming -- see the other categories here relating to mistreatment of trans people.

A trans woman is the main villain and her sleeping with Ace Ventura is portrayed as predatory. She’s also sexually assaulted and outed by the protagonist in a way that’s glamorized and portrayed as the right thing to do.

SPOILER -- In front of everybody, Ace pulls down a trans woman's pants in front of a large crowd, to misgender her and mock her. It's awful and inexcusable, yet somehow the film defends it still.

It would be hard to argue with the whole "laces out" thing that Einhorn isn't a bit mentally ill. And i'm pretty sure that attempted murder counts as violence.

There is an implication of oral sex happening off screen while the protagonist acts like nobody's ever touched his peen before. It's played for comedy and isn't at all erotic, and doesn't last very long.
