Happy Easter Everyone! I saw the movie Hop last night, and it was adorable! In short it was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory meets Alvin and the Chipmunks meets Tim Allen’s The Santa Claus. Cute Paas (just like the egg die) is next in line to be the next Easter Bunny, the only thing standing in the way of his destiny is his life long dream of becoming a rock star. To escape his graduation from bunny to Easter Bunny he runs away to Hollywood (where dreams come true), where he meets Fred O’Hare (real-life hottie James Marsden)…this is where the shenanigans really start. The movie of course, is entertaining, and many of the Easter Bunny references, such as Paas calling himself E.B. once he gets to LA, or the megaphone being called the “eggaphone”, really tie in the theme. Additionally, I was surprised to see stars Chelsey Handler and “the Hoff” in the movie, as well as the voice of Hugh Hefner when E.B. tries to bunk up with all the other bunnies in Hollywood. Highly recommended if you like funny animated/animal movies…can’t wait to catch Rio!
