Hop : Movie Review

The Easter Bunny gets an Alvin and the Chipmunks makeover in Hop, director Tim Hill’s second consecutive tale of a furry anthropomorphic critter with astounding musical talent and an exasperated human companion. Expected by his father to assume the family’s candy-delivery throne, flannel-shirted bunny E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand) rebels by fleeing to Hollywood to become a drummer, teaming up with biped Fred (James Marsden), an unemployed slacker also dealing with a disappointed daddy. Their ensuing escapades involve a resentful rabbit-employed yellow chick (Hank Azaria) intent on seizing magic-egg power, an impromptu ventriloquism rendition of I Want Candy, and the revelation that Easter Bunnies can poop jelly beans.
