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

Hank and Mike is a pretty smart offering - off-beat, but on message, this is comedy with a heart as black as 100% pure cocoa: a sweetened center tempered with bitterness.
Cynical, surreal, and surprisingly insightful if you enjoyed Office Space you should enjoy this - it's kind of a mix of Bad Santa and Office Space with more that a small touch of the Odd Couple.
The alternative reality stuff was saved from being Elf-like by the booze, cigarettes, and foul-language; bless'em. There are only so many jokes about Easter bunnies that work, so they're avoided in the main, though the ones used are good too.
The humor is tight and a remarkably good satire emerges. It fails to be a total success, but as a quirky comedy with a gooey satirical center it flies.
An Easter Egg of a movie: didn't expect much but we laughed a lot.
