Get into the Easter spirit with the animated film, Hop, starring James Marsden and the voice of Russell Brand. Hop hit theatres on April 1, 2011!

The Family Business

As a young bunny, E.B. couldn’t wait to follow in his father’s footsteps and become the Easter Bunny. But twenty years and a drum set later, E.B. realized that taking over the family business wasn’t what he wanted. His dream was to become a musician. With his father pressuring him to step up to the plate, E.B. hops in the rabbit hole and leaves Easter Island. He travels to the place where fame awaits him—Hollywood.

Back In The Nest

There he meets Fred O’Hare, a 30-something man who’s down on his luck. He’s jobless and living with his parents again. His year-long search to find a new job has been fruitless because of his high expectations, and he’s driving his family crazy. When Fred’s sister lets him housesit at her boss’s mansion and sets him up with a job interview at a video game company, he thinks his luck has changed. Then he meets E.B...and everything goes downhill from there.

The Hoff

When E.B. discovers that his father’s armed guards are on his trail, his panicked escape costs Fred the potential job. Fred is ready to cut the ties between him and the obnoxious rabbit. But E.B. convinces him to help with one last thing—an audition for David Hasselhoff’s talent show. When E.B. is invited to the show, Fred realizes that their friendship may offer a golden opportunity—Fred could take E.B.’s job as the Easter Bunny!

The Evil Chick

Unfortunately, back on Easter Island, someone is already after the job. Carlos, the Easter Bunny’s right-hand man (or chick), wants to take over the business. And he’ll stop at nothing until he gets the job.

The Bottom Line

Hop is a great family film that will get you into the holiday spirit. It has a slow start, but offers a few laugh-out-loud moments to make up for it. Overall, it didn’t quite live up to some recent animated films, like Despicable Me, Tangled and Gnomeo & Juliet.
