Excerpt: Easter moves are far and few between if only because they don't focus on the true meaning of Easter depending on ones religious beliefs. Hop is kiddy fair at its best and Hop is a pleasant fun little flick. The Alvin and the Chipmunks feel to it works well and the story itself is basic the jokes goofy and the premise just fine. The cast is also decent with the voice talent handling their end just as good.
Excerpt: Hop is a cute movie and kids will love it but adults not so much. Yes it's from the creators of Despicable me but that movie was better than this one! Had good but not amazing pq. The audio is pretty good. I didn't watch the extras except I tried to play one of the games which was slow. Overall kids will enjoy this more than adults.
Summary: In the 2011 film Hop, the Easter Bunny is basically Santa Claus and its main character, EB, is just like Alvin (of Alvin and the Chipmunks). In fact, this movie is very similar to Alvin's movie. Alvin and Hop both feature live-action stars co-starring alongside computer-animated main characters. Both of these animated, central "cute" animals want/dream of becoming recording/rock star musicians (Alvin sings ... EB plays the drums).
Summary: HOP is a really lazy and lousy film. While technically amazing HOP is filled with unfinished scenes, unfulfilled moments, characters who amount to nothing, silly dumb scenes that go nowhere and worst of all the tediously unfunny Russell Brand. I have no clue as to why he is being promoted as funny or interesting. I find his work really annoying.
Summary: This time, the phrase "From the producers of Despicable Me" did not sound like a warning, but as a recommendation, because I moderately enjoyed that movie. Unfortunately, Hop ended up being a horrible film which uses the most cloying and tiring routines from the family cinema. In a few words, I found the story to be boring, the humor to be excessively simple and trite, and the performances (with one exception) to be lacking of any life or energy.
Summary: The TV previews made me want to see this movie, but it turns out that those were the few funny moments to this movie - with the exception of the school play with the characters singing "I Want Candy". Nicely animated, but short on guffaws. Kids may love it, but as an adult it was a bit boring at moments and not very original. Now, really, the Easter Bunny has a sleigh?
Summary: Despite the terrible reviews the critics decided to give this movie I decided to go and watch for myself. It seems that all critics like now days are movies with non stop sexual innuendos and sex period. They should realize that this movie is targeted towards kids while at the same time if the adults actually pay attention and listen closely they will enjoy this movie. The animation is splendid and the jokes throughout the film are jokes that any kid would enjoy.
Summary: I am glad, finally a holiday comedy about Easter, and like Garfield and Scooby Doo, It mixes live action with CGI animation. Now I really liked the animation, the Easter Bunnys warehouse where they make candy for Easter is the most awesome thing since Willy Wonkas Chocolate Factory. Not to mention Hugh Laurie, Russell Brand, and Hank Azaria voice there characters perfectly, and provide much of the films humor.
Summary: You know it sort of annoys me that people bag on movies like Hop but get all excited about things like Kung Fu Panda, Rango and Despicable Me. This is a movie made for kids and besides my 4 year old and all the other kids in the theater laughing, dancing and clapping in sheer amazement, I must say I chuckled pretty hard several times.
Summary: Visual effects will get Academy nominated, story borrows from the various Christmas movies, live action acting is OK, but the music is great. Never heard the Blind Boys of Alabama until yesterday, with E.B. as their stand in drummer. I Want Candy from Bow Wow Wow in a big number upstaging Fred's sister intentionally bad singing. Rockband drum set (not positive what piece they were playing).
