Storyline

Bean Bunny is too small to be useful (says his brother) to help prepare for the Bunny Picnic, so he wanders off and sees a legendary persecutor of all rabbits: the farmer's dog. But nobody believes him when he tries to tell them he's seen the dog, until the dog breaks up the picnic. And it's up to Bean to come up with a plan to defeat the farmer's dog and discover the one thing the dog fears. Written by Kathy Li

24 September 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is the funniest movie ever made. The chemistry and connection between Bean and the dog is incredible. An inspiring movie about what one little bunny can accomplish with the help of his friends. THe farmer gets what he deserves. A must see movie for the whole family.
