It is slapstick because it involves a bit more physical comedy aka "I laugh because he tripped and fell" humour, or exaggerated body movements/reactions.
1. When the guy figures out Ace gave him a fake pooch and came and smashed his wind shield.
2. The woman whose dog he recovered gives him a "whirlwind" reward.
3. Ace falling into the shark tank.
4. The montage of Ace trying to inspect the rings and getting socked by one athlete.
5. Ace being an insane footballer and diving over the hedge.
6. Finkle's parents pointing a shotgun through the door when he knocked.
