Jim Carrey will likely be the highlight of the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog movie, but it looks kind of funny

Sonic the Hedgehog movie
I was prepared to roll my eyes and hate the trailer, but I found it funny. Jim Carrey is a pro. I'm down for this!
Sonic the Hedgehog movie As one might expect, the Internet is outraged by a live action Sonic The Hedgehog film. They also have complaints about his teeth. Yes, his teeth. WTF. Regardless, he's coming to te big screen with Jim Carrey as Dr. Ivo Robotnik and Ben Schwartz voicing Sonic.

To be honest, I can see this plot line much clearer than Ryan Reynolds solving crimes with Detective Pikachu. Yeah, I saw the 3DS game, but Pikachu is a detective? So, as far as unlikely plots, Sonic has this one nailed - and I'm a full-on Nintendo fan.

I went the NES and SNES route, forgoing Sega consoles until the Saturn arrived. Mario movies make more sense to me even though they're dreadful.

This may be a great opportunity for Sega to boost Sonic's rep in the larger entertainment industry. Can a small-town cop help sonic evade the evil doctor and the government goons who want to capture him? Find out in November 2019!
