Goofs

After Sonic is woken up by the smelling salt, he super-speeds around the kitchen. When he stops, the bowl with the oranges stays upright with all the oranges still inside. When Maddie and Tom goes into the other room to talk, the bowl is inexplicably tipped on its side with three oranges lying on the table. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
[Dr Robotnik chases Sonic through San Francisco]
Sonic: So, I know what you're thinking: Why is that incredibly handsome hedgehog being chased by a madman with a mustache from the Civil War? Well, to be honest, it feels like I've been running my whole life. Is this too much? Am I going too fast? It's kinda what I do. You know what? Let's back up!
[goes to Sonic's childhood]

How a Company Should Treat its Customers!
13 February 2020 | by mamba_kingSee all my reviews

When I saw the original trailer I was genuinely horrified in Sonic's design, like a person in bad cosplay. After the redesign many like myself felt the need to support this movie to honour the fan service and genuine care. I'm sure glad that I did. A funny movie, Jim Carrey was amazing like always and of course Sonic looked great. A very fun movie for the whole family.
