Jobless slacker Fred (James Marsden) discovers that hares make horrible houseguests after injuring the Easter Bunny (Russell Brand) and agreeing to nurse the little hopper back to health in this animated comedy from the writers of Despicable Me, and director Tim Hill (Rocko's Modern Life, SpongeBob SquarePants). For the past 4,000 years, the Easter Bunny has brought joy and candy to kids all across the globe; however, the time has come for a new Easter Bunny to take over the tradition. But while EB is the next in line to receive the official title, he couldn't care less about becoming the official bearer of chocolate eggs and jellybeans. Escaping to Hollywood in a bid to find fame and fortune, EB hops in front of an oncoming car driven by Fred, who agrees to give him a place to recover until he's healthy enough to hop along home. Now, the harder Fred struggles to stop his furry new companion from sending his life into a tailspin, the more satisfaction he begins to get out of his newfound responsibility. With a little luck and a whole lot of patience, Fred just might become the man who saved Easter for everyone.~Jason Buchanan
Great Spring Eostre flick.
Always a great picture on an OLED, 4k upscale.
5.1 had quite the punch & Neural X did a fabulous job up upmixing on an Oppo through a 11.2 (7.2.4)
The stretchy wrapping that allows me to put a slit & repurpose it as a dust cover.
There doesn’t seem to be enough movies about Easter, at least anything newer that the kids enjoy. I randomly found this on sale and figured I’d give it a shot. The movie is actually funny for kids and adults. The rabbit is fun, and there are some adult chuckles in there as well. Our kids need to watch it about 25 times before Easter and during. I recommend this one.
This movie was more than I expected!! I put it on for my 6 year old when it was bed time, she was so tired though she didn't even get past the previews. Me on the other hand got stuck. Once I started watching it I was hooked. My husband watched it the next evening and really enjoyed it. So all said and done my 2 year old boy, 4 year old girl, 6 year old girl and myself and my husband have watched this movie several times in the past 2 weeks and ALL of us love it!!
My granddaughter and her brother loved it Hop had great animation They had their eyes glued to the screen the whole time except for the two breaks we took to refill out snacks and drinks I must say I enjoyed it myself and would definitely recommend it
It was definitely a cute movie, although it seemed to be unsure of where it wanted to be in audience range. Most of the movie seemed to appeal to teenagers and young adults wanting to do what they feel they should do for a career, but the ending was reminiscent of a happy ending to a children's movie. Either way, it was cute, and while I didn't personally find it hilarious, I'm sure kids would enjoy it.
This film is just fun to watch. Good cast, good pacing, animated characters and special effects that have held up well, as the movie has aged. Its bright, cheerful, very colorful, fun, and it looks fantastic on my 4k TV that is upscaling from Bluray.. An Easter movie that the entire family enjoys and it stays enjoyable year to year.
This movie is adorable! I have three kids, twin 13 year olds and a 10 year old. We watched this as a family and everyone enjoyed the happy, feel good movie. At a time when my kids are wanting to watch inappropriate movies.... it made me happy that they loved this movie and wanted to watch it again with friends later.
