E.B.: Look, Dad. Ahem. Ever since I was yea big, it's been, "The Easter Bunny wouldn't do that" and "The Easter Bunny has to be perfect." But... Ha! I'm not perfect!

E.B.'s Dad: A sock?

Hop: Sellout

I can enjoy virtually any movie. All it takes is being in the right frame of mind. Unfortunately, I went into this movie expecting an Easter movie, not "Aliens" with the Peter Rabbit crew.

From the beginning, Hop, took the ideals of the original Peter Cottontail main focus is exploration and learning rather than Capitalistic consumer society to a new level. As for the Bunnies themselves, they were neither threatening nor intimidating. Their mere presence in the film was to serve as cannon fodder, nothing more. It was a mistake of the screenwriters to blowup the Bunny Cube at the beginning of the film, because to the fans, the sight of the Bunny Cube represented the embodiment of the Bunnies as relentless, merciless beings, out to conquer and assimilate. The Hop himself represented none of that. He was flat, 1-dimensional, very predictable, and quite possibly the most redundant and useless hero in the 2000-year history of Easter. A footstool for the baby chicks, and nothing more.

That's not a bad concept, and in fact, if someone had just told me the plot, I'd've run to see this movie. HOWEVER, I came to see this movie because it was an Easter story, and if I hadn't gotten my tickets for free (and therefore, my protests were virtually meaningless), I'd've walked out of the theater.
