I have been told that I am way too critical on kids’ movies.  Maybe that’s true, I don’t know.  What I do know is what I liked as a kid, because for the most part I still like those things.  I think a movie for kids should be funny first and foremost.  It appears nowadays it MUST also have a message… blah blah blah.  Whatever.  Sure.  Ok.  But is it fun to watch and funny?  This movie was enjoyable to watch and although not necessarily laugh-out-loud funny, it was humorous at times.  Therefore, I think that this movie deserves a 3.5 Icee (out of 5) rating.

As I said above, the movie has to be fun, and this movie was pretty fun throughout.  It was funny enough for its target audience (which had to be pre-teens) as they laughed here and there throughout.  It wasn’t great or anything, but I did enjoy the movie… hence the rating.

When watching the trailers I was concerned that the Jim Carrey character would be too stupid to even watch.  He does that at times.  However, I am happy to report that he wasn’t “as” stupid as the trailers made him out to be and his role was tolerable.

Sonic himself was fun (notice a theme in this review?) with just a dash of sadness… which worked for the moral of the movie (yes, of course it had to have one).

So if you want to see a fun little movie that your pre-teens might enjoy, this might just be it.

There is a scene shortly after the credits start, but nothing after that.
