Adam Sandler has revealed that he was so impressed by fellow actor Jim Carrey’s performance in Sonic the Hedgehog that he called him during the screening of the film.
The film, which released in February to overwhelming response from fans, is an adaptation of Sega’s classic video game.
It features a hedgehog named Sonic (Ben Schwartz) on a quest to defeat Doctor Robotnik (Carrey).
During an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Adam Sandler said Sonic was the last film he saw in theaters before they were ordered to shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“I saw Jim Carrey’s movie, the Sonic. I noticed that people were spread out, there were only a few of us in the theater and I was laughing very loud. The people behind us were laughing, too. So I think our last big night out: Sonic.
“I called Carrey from the theater. I was telling him how funny he was while it was going on. I didn’t know it was going to be the last movie I ever saw at a movie theater,” the actor said.
Sonic the Hedgehog, which also starred James Marsden, had raked in USD 306 million in worldwide gross.
