Unexpected genuine comedy, 20 December 2010
Author: peter-kelly00 from Australia

I rented this movie without knowing anything about it and with no expectations. It turned out to be one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time. Thomas Michael plays the role of a womanising, heavy drinker who is quite comfortable with his imperfections very well. His character is the deadpan needed for the running jokes throughout the movie. Mike, Paolo Mancini, lives for Easter and brilliantly plays the role of the straight laced guy, who's ready to snap at any moment. Hank and Mike complement each other perfectly, as the two Easter bunnies, with their individual glaring character flaws helping to highlight the underlying sense of reality throughout the film.

A stand out performance is Chris Klein, who plays an excellent role as a cut-throat contractor hellbent on making a fast buck at anyones expense, and has one of the best scenes singing The Burning Hells karaoke demonstrating how his character may be more tragic than the two bunnies put together.

The bunny suits are a brilliant visual aid and work extremely well to emphasise the darkest moments, of an already extremely dry comedy. The film would still work without the suits and Easter bunnies, but it would lack the satire along with the ability to draw you into a universe where being an Easter bunny is a job and that is how it is.

The film is not a rip-roaring comedy adventure in the world of hilarious Easter bunnys, but rather a tragic reality, where you cant help but laugh at the flaws, interactions and one liners the well developed characters have to offer, something akin to Arrested Development or Office Space as opposed to American Pie or anything with Rob Schneider.

If you take the time and allow yourself to be taken into their world without expectations of a blockbuster comedy, I hope you will be thankful and enjoy this gem that slipped under the radar.
