Jim Carrey had a meteoric rise to fame in the 1990s thanks to a string of comedy hits like Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask, and Dumb & Dumber, not to mention a campy villainous turn as The Riddler in Batman Forever, all in the span of a year and a half. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Jim Carrey get that silly, but as a new Sonic the Hedgehog featurette shows us, that changes this weekend.
Sonic the Hedgehog, based on the Sega video game of the same name, brings in Jim Carrey to play the evil genius Dr. Robotnik, who wants to use his technologically advanced machines to take over the world and control humanity.

Thankfully, this isn’t as horrifying as it could have been thanks to the character redesign that pushed the movie back from November last year…but it’s still not great. Watch the Sonic the Hedgehog clip below. Read More »
