Hop

Hop is the story of two twentysomething slackers with overbearing fathers. One (James Marsden) is a jobless human; the other (voiced by Russell Brand) is the future Easter Bunny, who’d rather play drums than deliver baskets. Their worlds collide, literally, when Fred the human hits E.B. the rabbit with his car and reluctantly agrees to take him in. This live-action/animation hybrid features a typically restless performance by Brand and a few clever visual gags (the bunnies live on Easter Island, their globes are egg-shaped, and E.B. poops jellybeans). The scenes that take place in the candy-colored animated world are better than the ones in the blah real world, but the mix never quite settles into a comfortable rhythm, like it’s trying to cram two so-so movies into one kinda-cute family comedy.
