      Woah, woah woah - what scene is that from Ace Ventura? I don't remember him going into any pet shop. And i guess this just re-iterates that no screen version of Batman has truly captured his detective side. He is, after all, supposed to be the world's greatest detective. Keaton had the whole 'figuring out the Joker's chemical formulas', and Bale had the whole 'shooting-at-a-brick-with-a-big-gun' thing, but i never felt that aspect of the bat was ever captured well in the films.

      Where's Paul Smecker (Willem Dafoe) from Boondock Saints? You've got Ace Ventura on here, but not him? Really now...that's simply absurd.

      Gay Perry should be higher on the list for sure :P

      ...it's TV-only. But I'd love to see "Columbo" up there...

      It's not a very well known film, but Detective Loki from Prisoners should be on this list.

      ...Or rather, Detective Loki should be added to it, since this list predates the film
