Movie Review: Hop

Movie Blurb:From the makers of Despicable Me comes an all-new comedy about candy, chicks and rock n roll! He was destined to be the Easter Bunny, but all he wanted to do was rock! When teenage E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand) leaves for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream to become a rockstar drummer, he meets Fred (James Marsden), an out-of-work slacker with his own lofty goals. Together the two encounter a series of hilarious mishaps and misadventures and in the end help each other recognize the importance of family.

Review: If you love movie's like Up, Despicable Me or even Coraline, why haven't you seen this movie? I was wondering why I hadn't yesterday, until I bought it for 48 hours On Demand.

This is a great family film. The plot is cheesy and cute. Russell Brand as E.B.? Totally awesome. I never thought the bunny would be a Brit! His cameo later in the film was cute too. It is hard not to be amused by the bunny and his drumming, equally so the evil chick Carlos and the dancing chick Phillip.

The little Peeps are the minions of the Easter world. Too freaking cute too.

The Easter factory almost makes Wonka's chocolate factory look lame.

Oh and then there's the human's. I loved Fred, played by James Marsden, who kept reminding me of a younger Matt Bomer. His sister is played by Kaley Couco of Big Bang Theory fame. It was a little hard to visualize her as a go getter, but hey, that's what acting is all about.

This movie was so fun. I could watch it again and again. There aren't many Easter films, but this is definitely a must see for this holiday!
