Adam Sandler Broke Theatre Rules To Call Jim Carrey During Sonic Screening
Theatre rules apply to everyone but Adam Sandler.
We all know that whenever you watch a movie in a theatre, a set of rules flash on the screen. One of them is to turn off your phone so that you yourself and others can enjoy the film. But, it looks like Adam Sandler doesn’t believe those rules apply to him. This is because, during the screening of Sonic the Hedgehog, he broke the rules by calling Jim Carrey!
Adam Sandler breaks the rules for Jim Carrey
It seems like Sandler didn’t hear the theatre rules, or at least pretended like he didn’t. During an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Sandler said that the last film he saw in the theatres was Sonic the Hedgehog. The film stars Ben Schwartz and James Marsden, but more importantly, it has Jim Carrey as the antagonist Dr. Robotnik.
While watching the film, Sandler was so excited to see his old friend Carrey that he rang him up while watching the film. He noticed that the theatre wasn’t too full, so a phone call might not disturb anyone. Adam Sandler told Kimmel in the interview:
I saw Jim Carrey’s movie, the ‘Sonic.’ I noticed that people were spread out, there were only a few of us in the theaters 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.
Of course, looking at Adam Sandler’s words, we can’t say for certain what he meant by the theatre. Whether he was in the auditorium or in the bathroom of the theatre, we may never know. But, it would be an understatement to say how much Adam Sandler and Jim Carrey have done for comedy. I think for that, we can allow a small breach of theatre rules.
