Ileana’s Movie Review: Hop

Hop
Universal

Hop

Starring: James Marsden, Russell Brand, Hugh Laurie

Summary: Deep underneath Easter Island hundreds of chicks and bunnies busily prepare for the Easter holiday, the same way the elves in the North Pole prepare for Christmas. Hop is the story of E.B. (Brand), the teenage son of the current Easter Bunny. E.B. is being groomed to take over for his dad someday but what he really wants is to become a drummer in a rock band. Two weeks before Easter he runs away for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream. In Hollywood he runs into Fred (Marsden), a slacker who doesn’t really know what he wants to do with his life. Together they realize that growing up isn’t the worst thing after all and they finally embrace their destinies.
This movie was panned by critics everywhere but it really wasn’t that bad. Considering that the target audience is children, it’s very colorful and full of adorable critters. Sure the acting was cheesy but the kids in the theater weren’t complaining. Russell Brand is surprisingly restrained in his comedy, but again it is a kid’s movie. My favorite scene was when Fred pretended E.B. was his puppet and he was the ventriloquist. I also thought the supporting cast was great, especially Hank Azaria as Carlos the Easter Bunny’s assistant.   Grade: B
Rated: PG – For mild rude humor
