Movie Info

Peter Rabbit, the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers, now takes on the starring role of his own irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude. In the film, Peter's feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as they rival for the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne). James Corden voices the character of Peter with playful spirit and wild charm, with Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley performing the voice roles of the triplets, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail.

The movie remains an object lesson in how not to adapt a beloved volume to the screen.

It just happens to be clever, and funny, and moves as fast as a tyke on a sugar bender. If you squint hard enough, you'll also find some of the author's signature generosity and warmth, too.

Easy chuckles are no substitute for genuine charm. I'm just glad that Corden didn't insist on doing rabbit burrow karaoke.

February 9, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A children's film that makes its adult audience take stock of their own actions and ways of thinking, particularly as the story ends up abandoning the concept of heroes and villains, and paints its characters with shades of grey.

There are good laughs along the way, but they're clobbered to death by Gluck's insistence that you acknowledge them.

February 9, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

The gentle spirit of Beatrix Potter's books is subsumed into a chaotic, violent mayhem, manically soundtracked to the day's hits.

A decent enough adaptation of the classic books. There's a lot here for adults and children to enjoy overall.

Delightful and charming. Peter Rabbit is not perfect, but certainly kept the children rocking with laughter as they watched the naughty rabbit cause mayhem in MacGregor's garden. The animation is impressive and almost seamlessly weaves into live action, and then into Beatrix Potter's classic water colours. Enjoyed the poignant backstory reflections of Peter's father without being overly melodramatic. A fun film even for the adults.

Fired Up!: Hilarious! Easy A: Hilarious and Charming. Even better! Man, this guy is on a roll... Friends With Benefits: Meh. Annie: Uh oh. Peter Rabbit: Who are you, Will Gluck? ...I liked it more than I probably care to admit...
