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

Perfectly pleasant, funny, if unexceptional Easter holiday movie.
April 6, 2011
For the most part it tries too hard, lurching from one plot contrivance to another and never giving any of its cast (apart from the heroically hard-working Marsden) much to do.
April 4, 2011
It's a combination of the worst movies about trouble in Santa Claus's north pole toy factory and a version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory lethally laced with sugar.
April 1, 2011
As fake and forgettable as a marshmallow Peep, "Hop" goes down easy enough. It's the thought of a talented actor stuck on an industry conveyor belt that leaves an unfortunate aftertaste.
April 1, 2011
Though the integration of live action and animation is improving (especially a scene where E.B. cuddles with Fred's sister), it's still a slightly disorienting experience.

Hop is just too shrill, slick and sickly sweet for anybody's good. Watching it won't rot your teeth, but it could leave an ugly cavity in your brain.
April 1, 2011
A fun and funny mix of live action and animation that puts the hop back into Easter.
April 1, 2011
Hop integrates animated characters into live-action settings, relying on director Tim Hill to handle the logistics of convincingly blending both worlds.
April 1, 2011
It may be okay for kids under 10 but this anodyne movie will try the patience of the family audience for whom it strives mightily.

It's supposed to be sweet, but "Hop" is a headache waiting to happen.
April 1, 2011
Presented with the opportunity to do the first-ever big-budget Easter bunny flick mixing live action and animation, "Hop" gives us . . . a bunny who poops jelly beans.
April 1, 2011
It offers a glimmer of amusement, but only to kids still young enough to believe in the Easter Bunny.
March 31, 2011
A soulless and depressing film, with plasticky production design.
March 31, 2011
A fairly undistinguished but pleasant and easy-to-take holiday movie, with slow spots and silly spots and a handful of moments of inspiration.
March 31, 2011
Hop will win audiences over with its goofy charm.
March 31, 2011
The whole thing raises questions of the type it is almost embarrassing to contemplate; it's almost like "Donnie Darko," for little kids.
March 31, 2011
All in all, it's hard to know for whom "Hop" is made.
March 31, 2011
The only thing missing is any real wonder, imagination or comic verve.
March 31, 2011
Brand does manage to play an obnoxious creature with a kind of charm. He feels like the only person who doesn't need this movie.
