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.

Hop is populated with humour that is slow, dated and mindless, an ADD confection of half-baked slapstick and notions of the healing power of Easter chocolate.

Brand is diffident and banal; he continues to lack versatility as an actor, seemingly more comfortable in his own skin.

It offers few surprises, and for your buck all you'll essentially get is a cringe-inducing dance number, lame gags and an admittedly alluring display of oversized chocolate. Avoid.

This is a very bad movie.

I wish I could say that Hop is a complex remake of Scorsese's own controversial Easter movie, but it's more likely that any similarity between characters living, dead or reborn are completely coincidental.

Gone are the days of childlike mystery, and in their place we have the childish Hop.

Hop isn't charmless, but it is inert.

No amount of enthusiasm can make up for the shaky premise and half-hearted writing.

The animated critter that is at the center of this mess makes for one odd chick.

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

Most gags are as disposable as last week's colored eggs, but there's likable geniality that keeps Hop tolerable, hinging on your tolerance of Brand's cheeky style.

Despite some surface appeal, it is as hollow in the center as a chocolate rabbit.

Marsden has charisma to spare and is clearly game for the many pratfalls, but the more fantastical AND entirely animated sections of the film set in the factory are far superior.

You know that sense of childlike wonder you experience when you tear away the shiny foil and bite into a huge milk chocolate egg - only it turns out to be carob? Well, Hop is a carob egg.

It's a story kids have seen a thousand times, and even recently in a far cleverer, engaging and touching way (How To Train Your Dragon), and Hop brings nothing new or unique to the table.

[A] heavily marketed piece of unfunny.

This Easter, celebrate with a slice of rabbit pie at home while avoiding this film.

The bunny's cute, but the story's mangy in Hop, a forgettable family film that may play well to young tykes but won't hold the interest of parents or older siblings.
