Thomas Michael, Paolo Mancini, Chris Klein and Joe Mantegna star in director Matthiew Klinck's holiday-themed comedy concerning two downsized Easter bunnies whose friendship starts to suffer when the multi-national corporation that owns all holidays decides to make some serious cutbacks. Hank and Mike are the Felix Unger and Oscar Madison of holiday mascots: They may seem like a mismatched pair yet their differences are precisely what's kept them together all these years. While Hank is a hard drinking ladies man, Mike can't seem to look past his own insecurities long enough to realize how truly miserable he is. Once a year, Hank and Mike dutifully venture out to deliver Easter baskets to families everywhere. This year, however, Easter Enterprises has taken a hit, and all "Tier 2" holidays (Christmas and Hanukkah being prime examples of "Tier 1") are fair game for downsizing. Since Hank and Mike work only once a year, their jobs are the first to go. Subsequently relegated to the ... Written by

I liked this comedy a lot more than I expected to when I got my hands on the screener. A film about two easter bunnies getting fired could go wrong in a lot of ways. But I found myself laughing out loud even though I was watching by myself which is rare.
There's some humor to be had in just watching guys in grubby easter bunny suits smoke, drink and screw their way through the film, but they also got a hold of Chris Klein for the role of Hubris the executive. He has perfect delivery and look for this market-gibberish-spewing near-con man, and his drunken karaoke performance of some The Burning Hells song I can't remember had me rolling.
Thomas Michael comes across very well as the sarcastic substance-abusing womanizer and Paolo Mancini serves very well in his role as the increasingly fed-up straight man who can only take so much before the inevitable explosion.
Mantegna was strangely in the background considering he is probably the most accomplished actor in the film, but I guess there wasn't much of a role for him really.
The bunny suits make for a lot of sight gags, especially the roid-raging bodybuilder who seems oddly at home in pink fur, and the scenes of them doing basic hygiene in costume.
Overall I thought it was one of the funnier comedies of the year but perhaps I just like bunny suits and hard living.
