Hop (PG)


This latest animation/live-action movie from the team behind Despicable Me is unashamedly middle-of-the-road. Russell Brand voices E.B., teenage rabbit heir to the mantle of Easter Bunny, currently held by his tradition-bound father (Hugh Laurie). But E.B.’s dream is to be a rock drummer, not run the Wonka-esque candy factory manned by worker chicks deep below Easter Island—you got it, with the statues—so the Easter Bunny can dispense treat-filled baskets to children everywhere once a year. Decent effort, but not anyone’s best.
