Storyline

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 Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Shockingly Good
29 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Literally went into this movie with zero clue of what to expect, and now that I've seen it, I'm really happy I did.

It's not the silliness humor that some people may have expected when they saw to guys in bunny suits on the poster, it's a darker humor that is delivered perfectly.

One of my favorite things about this movie is that it actually has it's serious moments, it's drama (as well as it's funny ones, actually a lot of really funny ones), but even during the most serious moments you have to laugh when you remember that these are two Easter bunnies. One, a chain-smoking, self-loathing slacker that drinks too much; the other an idealist riddled with low self-esteem, a bad knee, and an affinity for sweets.

Simply enough, if they weren't wearing bunny suits people would praise the seriousness and remark on the depth of the social commentary. But you still get all that, just with bunny suits. Which you just can't beat.

I liked it in the first 5 minutes. I really liked it by 10 minutes. I loved it by 20 minutes.
