If you’re looking to get into the Easter spirit, or if you like to laugh, you should definitely check out the movie HOP (now available on Blu-ray & DVD).
This hilarious movie is a combination of live-action and animation that dazzles the eyes and ears with lots of colourful scenery and catchy music! The movie follows a teenage bunny, named E.B., who is supposed to become the next Easter Bunny. The only problem is, E.B. just wants to become a rock star. He decides the only way to make his dream come true is to leave home and head to Los Angeles. Things get a little crazy when E.B. first arrives in L.A., but then he meets a human, named Fred, who has big dreams of his own. Can the two of them help each other make their goals become a reality? You’ll have to watch the movie to find out!
Here are a few things I noticed about the movie:
1) There are cute animals everywhere. From fuzzy chicks to adorable bunnies, you may find yourself saying “AWWW!” many times during this flick!
2) I giggled a lot. There is an “evil” chick named Carlos in the movie that had me laughing every time he came on screen.
If you watch it, leave a comment below and let me know what you thought of the movie!
Have a Hoppy Easter, everyone!

Easter is here! Celebrate with a classic tale like Here Comes Peter Cottontail, now remastered and out on DVD. This stop-animation movie tells the story of how a young rabbit and his hoppy friends save Easter and deliver colourful eggs to children everywhere. It’s full of cute characters and fun songs that the whole family can sing.

Hi Readers and Parents,
Heading to the theatre with your family? HOP just might be one to watch!
This animated/live-action movie follows two characters: Young E.B., a rabbit destined to be the next Easter Bunny, and a human slacker named Fred. E.B. is unsure about taking the high-pressure Easter Bunny job. He thinks me might even like to be a drummer instead of the Easter Bunny. And Fred is unsure about taking any job, much to the disappointment of his family. When the two characters meet, hilarity ensues. After a few comedic missteps, Fred and E.B. form a strong friendship and learn from each other. But more importantly, each character learns just what they are capable of when they set out to pursue their dreams.
Check out the HOP trailer:
HOP features some of the cutest animated bunnies you will ever see! And it enforces a great message about pursuing your dreams/accepting people for who they truly are. The comedic pacing is good, providing enough slapstick, singing and dancing to keep both children and parents entertained. The film also provides opportunities to talk about its messages (good and bad), as well as to discuss how Easter is portrayed in the film vs. how you may or may not celebrate it in your own house.
Stuff to watch out for:
HOP is rated PG for some crude humour and comedic violence. Some of the language, concepts and jokes are aimed mainly at adult viewers, and will likely go over most young viewer’s heads. However, be aware that some of the evil characters spout insults like “jerk” and “idiot” and there are a couple of scary scenes in which E.B. is in danger. And of course, there are lots of references to candy.
Enjoy the show!
