Fred O'Hare: Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go sleep in my car.
Sam O'Hare: Fred, listen. My boss is on vacation for a few weeks and he asked me to house-sit.
Fred O'Hare: Nobody ever asks me to house-sit.
Sam O'Hare: I know. It's so weird. Anyway, he has dogs, and you know I'm scared of dogs, so take over for me.

Hop away....quick.
25 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

HOP is a really lazy and lousy film. While technically amazing HOP is filled with unfinished scenes, unfulfilled moments, characters who amount to nothing, silly dumb scenes that go nowhere and worst of all the tediously unfunny Russell Brand. I have no clue as to why he is being promoted as funny or interesting. I find his work really annoying. The visuals with CGI bunnies and the Easter Island Wonka factory is fun but it all continually falls short of amounting to anything. Clever casting with appealing James Marsden helps but his family scenes are uniformly weak, and play like bad 60s TV scenes we all groaned about in the original Bewitched. Overall HOP is a huge disappointment made irritating by boring Brand. A real missed opportunity, made infuriating by the sitcom style and the go nowhere script and hopeless character development. All that technical expertise and THIS is all they do with it. That is lazy and cynical film making as if bundling shiny ribbon together is all that is needed. I went with a 4 year old and she (like others in the cinema) just became bored.
