Hop is a 2011 American 3D Easter-themed live-action/computer-animated family comedy film from Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment (of Despicable Me fame), directed by Tim Hill and produced by Chris Meledandri and Michele Imperato Stabile. The film was released on April 1, 2011, in the United States and the United Kingdom. While this film did decently at the box office, the movie received mixed-to-negative reviews from critics and audiences, making it the weakest film from Illumination so far.

Plot

On Easter Island, E.B. (Russell Brand) is the Easter Bunny's (Hugh Laurie) son who'd rather drum in a band than be like his father; meanwhile, Fred O'Hare (James Marsden), a young human man, is out of work and wishes to become the next Easter Bunny himself. While all of this is happening, a Chick named Carlos (Hank Azaria) is plotting to take over Easter.

Bad Qualities

  1. The plot is a jumbled mess and is uninspired.
  2. Terrible voice acting for the most part.
  3. A majority of the characters are stupid and unlikable.
  4. This film can get a bit too dark in places.
  5. Inappropriate adult humor, such as the Playboy Bunny mansion (in a kids movie).
  6. The final battle is extremely anti-climatic. E.B. defeats the Carlos-Bunny hybrid by... making Carlos's sidekick Phil dance so much that he accidentally makes Carlos crash his sled into a wall.
  7. Loads of product placements.
  8. There is a Chinese stereotype at the beginning.
  9. It follows many of the big cliches of hybrid films: An animated character ends up in a big city and finds a random guy to live with and silly antics ensue.

Good Qualities

  1. The soundtrack is really enjoyable.
  2. There are some good funny moments here and there.
  3. Carlos is a really good antagonist and his voice actor (Hank Azaria) can be quite entertaining.
  4. Some cute character designs, especially the bunnies.
  5. Nice CGI, as with Illumination's other films.

Trivia

  • To date, Hop remains the only Illumination film to be a live-action/computer-animated hybrid.

Granted, at least about 9 years later, James Marsden went on to become the DONUT LORD.

"Inappropriate adult humor".

Don't all kids/family aimed movies/TV shows have that type of humor? Even good ones?

Many of them do, but some of them can be a little more blatant and/or it can come off as unfunny.

I like Cars 2, and even that movie is on this wiki, and I do respect the opinions of those who don’t even like it.
