Sonic wasnt bad and a nice suprised. Would have put money on it being terrible. Carrey was funny(kids loved him), and Sonic was voiced great. Evening Marsden was good. Overall very happy it survived production hell.

Jim Carry probably has endless hatred towards me and about everyone in my family. I think it's nice they did the Sonic redesign, but I'll sit this one out.

I actually was rather indifferent about Sonic, didn't care either way but after reading this article I hope it continues to do well and keeps stomping on Birds of Prey.

Wrong Jim, this one is Jim Carrey.

Took my nephew to watch Sonic. Wasn't the steaming hot turd I thought it would be. It was more of a refreshing dump you take in the morning.

I watched Sonic and Fantasy Island back to back last night. Sonic was the better movie.

Jim Carrey had some awesome jokes in Sonic that stole the show. Whole audience just exploded at the orphan joke.

I'm not really surprised, Fantasy Island looked fucking terrible and The Photograph was (much like "The Rhythm Section") another case of people not knowing about the movie until it hit theaters.

Jim's red leather jacket kinda has a Raul Julia in Street Fighter vibe to it. Wonder if that is intentional?

I thought Fantasy Island looked Ok, but more like a direct-to-video release than something you go see in the theater.

I've also never heard of The Photograph. Where are these movies coming from if none of the big movie sites are even talking about them? That's a failure of marketing on a shocking level.
