Hop (2011)



Critic Consensus: It's impressively animated, but Hop's script is so uninspired that not even James Marsden's frantic mugging can give it any bounce.

Kids will love Brand's frenetic drumming take on E.B., adults will love that there are a few clandestine adult jokes.

They should have just brained the bunny. Would have gotten people talking.

A miscast Russell Brand and some poor writing make the film nothing but a decent one time watch.

A chip off the old munk -- "Chipmunk." And that's not a good thing.

The story is really all over the place, but it's your only choice for an Easter Bunny movie for miles around, so expect to see this one cycled around again each spring.

Harmless but not exactly clever.

Audience Reviews for Hop


Cute...for the youngins.

Hop was not as funny as I was hoping, but still it brought a few laughs. The film is cute and the story is somewhat interesting. I admit I did get bored and stop paying attention in some spots. It's a film for the kids more so us adults, even if there are some jokes only us adults will get. So not to bad, but definitely far from being good.


Super Reviewer

Good movie for kids, I think Russell Brand should permanently move to voice acting. That being said this movie has juvenile humor for juveniles, not for adults.
