It was a fun movie i admit it the whole thing about the easter bunny or E.B. was just great

Weak script but Russel Brand's perfect comedic timing, the few well-executed adult jokes, the striking visuals, and James Mardsen's performance make it a fun flick

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Oh, by the way, Christmas called. It wants its holiday back. Christmas wants to know why the Easter Bunny is delivering his holiday treats in a sleigh pulled by a flock of baby chicks. Who does this rabbit think he is? Santa Claus? On every Easter eve, according to "Hop", the bunny makes his airborne rounds around the world while the good little boys and girls are asleep, all except for Fred O'Hare, who as a child, catches a glimpse of the copycat critter as he lands in his backyard, where the Santa-wanna-be leaves behind a basket of Easter goodies on the child's front doorstep. Thankfully, some traditions remain sacred. At least the rabbit has the tact not to infringe on St. Nick's signature move: the chimney drop. But otherwise, the Easter Bunny is one shrewd character. He closely follows the successful business model laid out by the dictatorial St. Nicholas. As de facto leader of a candy factory located on, predictably enough, Easter Island, the rabbit too runs a tight ship. Also known as Rapa Nui, the Polynesian island with an infamous history of colonization, in which Dutch settlers completely wiped out the native population by the mid-nineteenth century through their spreading of infectious diseases. "Hop", however, suggests an alternative history during the film's opening credit sequence, where the moviegoer sees a long-running lineage of Easter bunnies in portraiture that traces back far enough in time to coincide with the genocide of the Rapa Nui population. The paintings, rendered in a distinctly European style, recasts the seemingly harmless rabbit as the colonizer. In the absence of Rapa Nui descendants, or elves, the Easter Bunny uses chicks(he's violating child labor laws!) to manufacture the vast array of holiday candies, including Hershey's Kisses, an American institution which creates a host of troubling connotations, since it suggests that the venerable Pennsylvania chocolate-makers moved their operations abroad to keep the cost of labor to a minimum. The silver-foiled mainstay, in essence, gives this factory the appearance of a sweatshop. After all, it's non-American workers who produce the chocolate treats, seemingly without wages or any opportunities for occupational advancement. Carlos(Hank Azaria), the Easter Bunny's foreman, a disgruntled lifer, always at his master's beck and call, seizes the moment to make it known that his services are available when E.B.(Russell Brand), the heir apparent, chooses instead to pursue a career in music. Despite being qualified for the top job, the chick's ingratiating behavior toward his pink-nosed boss leads him nowhere, as Carlos learns the hard truth about being a chicken in a rabbit's world. His job has a glass ceiling. That's because the chick is a victim of species discrimination. While E.B. is off galivanting in Hollywood, slumming as a musician because he can afford to, being a child of privilege(in the film's trailer, the bunny drums to Blur's "Song 2", but it's another Brit-pop smash, Pulp's "Common People", that's much more apropos to the bunny's breeding), Carlos loyally remains by the Easter Bunny's side, making sure that the gargantuan-sized operation stays right on schedule. Carlos deserves a shot. Insensitive to the chick's aspirations, the Easter Bunny confides to Carlos about E.B., saying, "I called his dreams ridiculous," which is precisely what he infers to the crestfallen chick after the yellow fuzzball's intimations for securing the top job gets a rise out of the racist rabbit. The chicks are in the same boat as the Short Ears(!) in Kevin Reynolds' "Rapa Nui", who stage a rebellion against the Long Ears, their longtime oppressors, which culminates in a race called the Birdman Competition, a convoluted triathlon that resembles, ironically enough, during one stage, an Easter egg hunt, where the first man to return home with a Sooty Tern egg intact wins. Just like "Hop", in the Reynolds film, you're rooting for the underdog(even though Jason Scott Lee is the main protagonist), the Short Ear, but Make(Esai Morales) breaks the yolk just before he crosses the finish line, allowing Noro(Lee), the Long Ear, to win the competition by default. In "Hop", the moviegoer may want the insurrection to succeed because the chick is better qualified for the job(maybe Carlos could open the gateway to China) than E.B. The rabbits treat the chicks like an indigenous race of people they've held rule over for generation upon generation(as suggested by the portraits). So in the end, E.B. returns to the fold when his dream to bang the skins in a band comes up short(The Blind Boys of Alabama reject him). To add insult to injury, the Easter Bunny deems that Fred(James Marsden), a human, share the mantel with his slacker son, even though he's not nearly as suited for the job as the chick. (Incidentally, there's a North Pole reference in "Rapa Nui" by way of an iceberg sighted off-shore.) Expand

I have not read anything in the trades about the making of this film, but it really felt like they slapped an ending together as they rushed to finish the film due to time/money constraints. While great movies like the Toy Story's allow us to get fully immersed and forget that we're in a fantasy world, lazy storytelling like this keeps reminding you of how preposterous the premise is.

My suggestion: hire the Toy Story folks to write the sequel.

Hop was never meant to be a great work of cinema, even though it's animation is top-notch. However the acting is spot-on, and the jokes are funny enough to make it an enjoyably 'built for kids' comedy.

The script relied too much on cheap laughs, the film overall felt like a rushed project and John Marsden's portrayal of Fred O'Hare, the film's animated protagonist, was simply hard to bare after being subjected to it for a good half hour. When I wrote my original review, I was angered that somebody at Universal honestly thought this was fit to send to theaters. I still feel that way now. This film should have never happened. It is simply a waste of time for anybody to watch this film. It's not even a case of "it's-so-bad-it's-good"; it is just terrible. Parents, get your kids to watch something else other than this, please. Expand

Your children will be slightly amused and enjoy a few hours out of the house. Brand, as he always does, milks everything he can out of the role as Hop. It's a good thing he does too. I can't imagine what a bore this film would've been without him.

"Hop" is pretty hopeless, despite its sweetness but put with little to no care. It's script is very weak, but its sure enough to entertain children. While I didn't completely hate Hop, there was little to like about it.

Hop is completely 'hop'less. By far the weakest non-Despicable Me installment for Illumination Entertainment and they have better come it back with their next installment coming up this July.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Jellybeans may lose their temptation once audiences discover they are actually rabbit droppings. And unfortunately that isn’t the only unappealing thing about this film. The Easter Bunny might be for little kids—but some of the content in this film isn’t. The young rabbit in this story (who is about to be crowned with the honor of delivering baskets of chocolate and candy all around the world) is suffering from teen angst. E.B.‘s (voice of Russell Brand) real ambition in life is to leave the family business and become a drummer. So on the eve of his official swearing in, he skips town and takes a magic tunnel to Hollywood where he plans, like hundreds have before him, to hit it big. Likewise Fred O’Hare (James Marsden) is in a bit of a funk. As a child, he spied the Easter Bunny hiding eggs outside his window. Whether or not that scarred him is hard to know, but 20 years later, Fred still hasn’t grown up and accepted the responsibilities of adulthood. He lives at home, dabbling in job interviews and loafing around until his parents (Gary Cole, Elizabeth Perkins) and sisters (Kaley Cuoco, Tiffany Espensen) are forced to stage an intervention. Driving down the road following his heave-ho, Fred accidently hits the bushy tailed E.B. who is wandering aimlessly after being refused entry at Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion. (How was he to know it is a different kind of sexy bunny they are looking for.) Though E.B. survives the incident without a scratch, he is quick to pour on the guilt, pretending to be injured so Fred feels forced to take him along on a house-sitting job. It’s difficult to generate too much sympathy for this pair of characters that actually deserve each other. Both are so self-absorbed they fail to grasp the realities of life. Meanwhile back on Easter Island, E.B.‘s dad (voice by Hugh Laurie) faces a coup d’état lead by his second in command—an unctuous Hispanic chick (voice by Hank Azaria) with doctorial ambitions. Young viewers will find some funny moments, especially when Fred and E.B. perform a rambunctious version of the song "I Want Candy" at an elementary school play. However many of the jokes are intended for the adults in the audience. (Even the teen sitting beside me didn’t get the comment about actor David Hasselhoff’s talking car.) Other gags include some veiled sexual innuendo and rude bathroom humor—especially dealing with poop. Violence also becomes an issue when a trio of highly trained Pink Berets is dispatched to retrieve the missing bunny. Using mouth blown tranquilizer darts, they subdue Fred after suspecting him of boiling E.B. in a stockpot. As well, characters are dangled above a pot of hot candy syrup and nearly sliced apart with sharp rotating saw blades during the coup. While this film betters the average cartoon, both the storyline and characters lack the charm that would make them truly worth hopping into theaters to see. Worst of all, this script may justify the actions of those who are loitering around their parents’ house waiting to snag an amazing gig—possibly as a magical holiday icon. Expand

E.B.(Russell Brand), the son of the Easter Bunny, decides to follow his dream to be a drummer in Hollywood instead of taking over the family business. On his Journey, E.B. has an accidental meeting with Fred (James Marsden) when Fred hitsE.B.(Russell Brand), the son of the Easter Bunny, decides to follow his dream to be a drummer in Hollywood instead of taking over the family business. On his Journey, E.B. has an accidental meeting with Fred (James Marsden) when Fred hits E.B. with his car. E.B. milks his injury and gets Fred to let him stay with him and becomes that nightmare guest everyone fears. This comedy blends animation with live action.
Hopping down the bunny trail just in time for Easter, this adorable tale will make children and adults of all ages smile. A teenage bunny is just about to inherit the title of Easter Bunny, but like every teenager, he has different plans for his future. He wants to travel the world and play in a rock band! One night, as he contemplates his future, he is struck by a car. While injured, he takes up residence with the man who hit him.
Don’t worry everything will be OK in time to make his rounds on Easter. The scene was not that traumatic and he is really only mildly injured. Little ones should not be disturbed at all by the accident scene! The Easter Bunny makes an obnoxious house guest and creates many predicaments for his caregiver. The Easter Bunny is very cute, but not the best house guest in the world. He is a bit of a Prima Donna too, but that’s OK, he’s the Easter Bunny.
The Easter Bunny does play a mean set of drums…and he poops jelly beans…normal flavored ones. That was the type of rude humor that caused it be rated as a PG instead of a G. This movie has everything an Easter movie could want. It has lots of candy, candy (the cute, fuzzy yellow kind), and rock-n-roll. This family movie review personally does not see anything that would make this movie questionable for younger children. It was absolutely adorable and this family movie review gives it a green light for any age group. It is cute, cute, cute, cute, cute, so hop on down to the local theater and see this one. Parents, you will definitely want to buy your kids jelly beans before this one, I guarantee.
