Hop to it

When I first saw the picture ads for Hop, I thought, "Oh how cute!  I must see this movie!"  And then I saw the trailer, which totally dashed my hopes for it.  A big part of the trailers was the jellybean poop scenes, so it looked like all the rest of the dreck being pumped out by Hollywood these days.  My SO was insistent on taking me to the movie, and I was so dreading this movie I almost sneaked out of the house early this morning.  I am so glad I didn't run off.

I enjoyed Hop. Quite a bit, actually.

The characters are absolutely ADORABLE.  If you like bunnies (and who doesn't), you MUST see this movie.  The blending of animation and live action was so seamless, it was impossible to imagine that the rabbits weren't real.  And it was very hard to believe that the Easter Bunny was voiced by House (Hugh Laurie).  The writing and dialog was decent, though not at all outstanding, however I laughed at quite a few points during the film.  And the whole jellybean thing?  What you see in the trailers is it.  Those two little scenes and that's all.

Some advice for James Marsden:  Jesus, man, lay off the caffeine!



I brought my E.B. plushie with me to the theater.  I heard quite a few "Oh look, he's got an E.B. plush!" from kids and adults alike.  I also overheard one woman telling her boyfriend, "You should have brought your Hop bunny!"

I will take your recommendation and go see Hop! I've been dubious myself, but you've convinced me. ^^ Great pic of you and E.B., BTW. =B

Oh my gosh! This picture is so exceptionally cute. I already planned on getting my own E.B. but seeing this photo makes my wanting much worse!

Great review! Thanks for the bunny poop info, too; I'm really tired of that being used for rabbit movies now.

If you like bunnies (and who doesn't), you MUST see this movie.

:o) Who indeed?! But I'll wait for BD and probably just buy it.

I just LOVE the picture! Love it! :D

A bunny suits you. Wait, that's not a pun, I swear. Heh.

The trailers look cute, so I'll get the disc when it comes out. I'm not big on theaters in general, and I figured this show would have tons of noisy kids in the audience.

This is all good to hear! I'd been waiting for a review from a real person (not a critic), and yours is the first I've seen so far. I'm planning on seeing it midweek.

I believe that you need to be wary of anyone who claims not to like bunnies. Such a claim means that either they are a stinkin' liar because how could you not like bunnies, or they are telling the truth and what kind of horrible person would not like bunnies?
