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.

Peter Pan, Plastered

When it was released in 1981, the original Arthur, starring Dudley Moore as the titular developmentally arrested drunken millionaire, earned $82 million at the box office—the fourth highest take for that year—and won two Oscars (one for supporting actor John Gielgud and one for its catchy, synth-heavy theme song about being caught between the moon and New York City). Its embarrassing sequel, 1988’s Arthur 2: On the Rocks, earned just $14 million and a Golden Raspberry award for Liza Minnelli.
