Critic's Review Heading

USA Today Full Review
Good This hopped-up wackiness, augmented by clever pop-culture references, adds to gleefully deranged humor that will appeal to both adults and children.

Washington Post Full Review
Average 'Hop'a piece of fluff as artificially sweetened as a fuchsia Peep, rises above these low expectations — but only barely. It offers a glimmer of amusement, but only to kids still young enough to believe in the Easter Bunny.

NY Post Full Review
Below Average You'd forgive a senseless story if any of this were fun, but apart from the cuteness of the characters (especially the ornery gang of fuzzball chicks who scheme to take over from the bunnies), there isn't much.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 49 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:All the kids loved "HOP." Nearly all rated it extremely high.
TEENS:Five of the six teems loved "HOP."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The one male and one female enjoyed this animated kids movie.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Off the coast of South America, on the island of Rapa Nui fondly known as Easter Island, under the giant stone heads resides the most magnificent candy factory. Three hundred and sixty five days a year, the Easter Bunny reigns over a team of bunnies and chicks who prepare the candy-filled baskets that are delivered to children around the world on Easter morning.

On the eve of being ordained as his father's successor, E.B.(RUSSELL BRAND) takes off for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream of becoming a drummer. Once there, he encounters Fred (JAMES MARSDEN), recently fired and determined to pull his life together. After being lovingly kicked out of his parents' home, he accidentally runs into E.B. Feigning injury and shocking Fred with his ability to talk, E.B. manipulates Fred into providing him shelter.

Back on Easter Island, the Easter Bunny's second in command, an oversized chick named Carlos, seizes upon E.B.'s disappearance as an opportunity to plot a coup. Ultimately, Fred and E.B. are Easter's only hope and they find themselves returning to Easter Island, locked in an epic battle to save the beloved holiday.
