At first glance, pitting Jim Carrey against Adam Sandler may feel a bit like an arbitrary choice, but the two of them have a lot in common. Both got their start in Hollywood on sketch comedy shows (In Living Color for Carrey, Saturday Night Live for Sandler), both enjoyed career highs and a ubiquitous big-screen presence during the 1990s, and both have proven they can handle more dramatic material when the circumstances are right. But on top of all that, both actors have also recently experienced a pop culture resurgence, with Sandler turning in an award-winning performance in the Safdie brothers Uncut Gems and Carrey not only premiering the second season of his acclaimed HBO series Kidding, but also set to open a major film in one of his most anticipated recent roles as the one and only Dr. Robotnik in Sonic the Hedgehog. Each of them has experienced some intense career highs and lows, and we decided to take a look at their box office earnings, their Tomatomater resumes, and some other fun criteria to decide who is the ultimate funny man. Check out the video for our assessment, and let us know what you think about our verdict in the comments.Sonic the Hedgehog is in theaters on February 14, 2020, and Season 2 of Kidding premiered on HBO on Feburary 9, 2020. Uncut Gems opened in limited release in theaters on December 25, 2019.

Needless to say, the show was certainly not going to be ready to air until the latter half of 2021 at the earliest. Up to this point, each season came out around the time of year when it took place — i.e. Season 2 took place around Halloween and was released in October, Season 3 took place over summer break and came out around the 4th of July — and the fact that the upcoming season takes place during the school year (and, judging from social media clues, in the fall) led us to believe Season 4 could have potentially premiered in the fall of 2021. Then, of course, we got the teaser released on August 6, 2021, which didn t show us much of anything new, but declared that Season 4 would drop sometime in 2022. Is it possible that Netflix will hold it until the fall of 2022 to keep with tradition? Maybe, but that means we ve got a long wait ahead of us.Will There Be More?There had been plenty of speculation that the fourth season of Stranger Things would be the last — especially since the young actors definitely don t look like middle schoolers anymore. But in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Ross Duffer said that the story isn t wrapping up just yet. Season 4 won t be the end, he said. We know what the end is, and we know when it is. [The pandemic-induced shut-down] has given us time to look ahead, figure out what is best for the show. Starting to fill that out gave us a better idea of how long we need to tell that story. What s Up With This Eleven Teaser?While there s still no premiere date, the powers that be at Netflix know that multiple years is way too long to go without any new Stranger Things content whatsoever — which is why they released a new (mysterious, of course) teaser in May hinting at some previously unrevealed information about Season 4.The minute-long clip is focused on Eleven, featuring what appears to be a flashback of the facility where our favorite superpowered teen was raised. As the clock strikes 3 (you ll recall we know episode 2 is titled Tick Tok Mr. Clock ), children play games (including what looks like Demogorgon chess — Queen s Gambit crossover confirmed! kidding) in a medical/science-type facility. A magic 8 ball reads signs point to yes and a Plinko game with discs that landed on numbers 4, 7 and 8. A man says, Good morning, children as the camera pans to a door with 11 on it — and our Eleven (played by Brown), startled, opens her eyes. What does it mean?! And are we getting more?! That s up to us to analyze and wait until Netflix decides to give us some more info.Stranger Things 4 will premiere on Netflix in 2022.On an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News.
