Rotten: The whole thing raises questions of the type it is almost embarrassing to contemplate; it's almost like "Donnie Darko," for little kids.
- A.O. Scott, New York Times, Thursday, March 31, 2011
Rotten: If you're 12 or younger, you'll think it's hilarious. If you don't? It's going to be a long 95 minutes.

Fresh: Hop will win audiences over with its goofy charm.

I haven't had any real desire to ever watch this, as I thought it looked pretty weak. But, I get dvd's for free and had Grant to myself Saturday so I popped it in and found myself with a kid movie I really enjoyed. Long story short the Easter Bunny is about to retire and he wants his son E.B.(Russell Brand) to take over, but he doesn't want the job. E.B. runs away and meets a loser named Fred(James Marsden) who wants the job, and the 2 set out to help one another, all while this evil chicken Carlos(Hank Azaria) threatens to take over Easter. See, total kids movie, but it is very funny. Russell Brand is absolutely perfect as E.B. I always find him either hilarious or annoying, and here he is hilarious. He has some great lines that adults will get, while never crossing the line for kids. The rest of the cast is just ok, but the story/effects/humor really shine and make a very enjoyable movie. Just goes to show, some movies can surprise ya for the better sometimes.

Hop was not as funny as I was hoping, but still it brought a few laughs. The film is cute and the story is somewhat interesting. I admit I did get bored and stop paying attention in some spots. It's a film for the kids more so us adults, even if there are some jokes only us adults will get. So not to bad, but definitely far from being good.

From the creators of Despicable Me, a great family film, comes "Hop," an overly cheesy film with a plot that a child could have thought of. It is very rare that a film is ever made about the easter holiday but when we get films like these, we are reminded of why that is. James Marsden plays Fred O'Hare, an underachieving man who still lives with his parents. His parents are very upset that he does not have a job. When his childhood memory comes to life and he finds an easter bunny, the story takes a turn. Not really, but the story of the movie is that fact that he will become the first human easter bunny. Probably one of the worst ideas for a film in a long time, but the execution was not that bad, for what it was. Kids will probably love this simply lame excuse for a film, but anyone else who watches it will not accept it for anything less than what it is, pure hollywood cheese, and not the fun kind. "Hop" is a dreadful movie with unfunny jokes and visual effects that will make you want to hurl. Definitely skip this one people!
