Good movie. You can't expect alot from this movie but it was interesting and fun enough for worth the while. Kids will like it.
Blending state-of-the-art animation with live action, Hop tells the comic tale of Fred, an out-of-work slacker who accidentally injures the Easter Bunny and must take him in as he recovers. As Fred struggles with the world's worst house guest, both will learn what it takes to finally grow up.
Hop is about bunny who is up next in becoming the Easter bunny; however, E.B., this bunny doesn't want to follow his heritage path in becoming the Easter bunny because he hopes to be a rockstar. He runaway and on his escape he is ran over by Fred (Marsden). Together these to have to work together, and make sure every kid receives their Easter egg.
What merely seems to be a good plot, fails due to the voice over, graphics, and mainstream unoriginality. . There are some things in Hop that just don't match, like putting Brand to voice a young bunny. The only voice over that works this entire movie is Laurie's, and the only convincing acting is from Cuoco.
The graphics are disappointing, really nothing spectacular. However the real reason why this movie didn't stand out there for me was because it tried to create characters that would be loved by everyone, and it just didn't work!
However, this movie is still able to entertain its run time, but there is nothing to take from it. Yet I believe that this movie will satisfy every child, its colorful and hyper activeness will serve as delight for most children out there. Don't be fooled, if you still think that every kids movie, Like Shrek, or The Incredibles, has something for each one of us, well this will prove you wrong.
E.B. : "My dad's right, I really need to get my act together. In Hollywood! "
E.B. is undeniably cute, and most of the live action cast is fine, but why the inclusion of David Hasselhoff? It's (dumb) joke casting. What I wish they had included a lot more of is the Pink Berets - a fun concept that ended up being barely used.
In this PG-rated Hop, cotton-tailed E.B. (Brand) ditches his Easter responsibilities and heads to Hollywood to become a famous drummer, only to get sidelined by an out-of-work slacker (Marsden).
After giving two promising performances in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek (both as the same character, over-sexed rocker Aldous Snow), English comedian Russell Brand seems miscast here as a mischievous lil' bunny. This R-rated comic can be quite funny, just not for an audience for whom his raunchy humor has to be watershipped down. Why the movie's Easter Island rabbits had to be British is beyond this reviewer. What's even more head scratching is why the head of the Easter Island labor force is a Hispanic chick fiendishly looking to take down upper management. Man, race relations were already strained enough!
Bottom line: Duck season...as in duck and cover.
