Hop, USA, 2011

Directed by Tim Hill

Hop isn't half-bad, according to Scott Martin. For those who know me, it’s no secret that I usually find movies like this a bit deplorable. There’s just something about the live-action/animation hybrid that I can’t ever get behind. Be it Yogi Bear (2010), or the Scooby-Doo movies, or the Alvin and the Chipmunks films, I’m always reminded of the glory days when Roger Rabbit was king. But a lesson I learned from reading Roger Ebert prevails in these situations: you judge the movie for what it is and if it achieves what it set out to achieve. Hop is a film that does just that – it’s sweeter than candy, it’s a kid’s movie through and through, but it has enough in it for adults to enjoy. And the most enjoyable thing about the movie? The comedy isn’t once forced. Yes, there are pop culture references every now and then, but it’s all derived from the situation. And situational comedy is always the best option.

E.B., voiced by Russell Brand, is the son of the Easter Bunny (voiced by Hugh Laurie), and is about to be named as his replacement. Of course, E.B. doesn’t want this; he wants to be a drummer in a rock and roll band. An evil chicken named Carlos, voiced brilliantly by Hank Azaria, wants Easter for his own. Meanwhile, in the human world, Fred O’Hare (James Marsden) is a disappointment to his father, Henry (Gary Cole); he’s a twenty-something loafer who can’t seem to find the right job and needs to move out of his parents’ house. E.B. and Fred meet at just the right time in both their lives. What follows is a film not only about growing up, but growing into yourself in the process.
