Quotes

Fred O'Hare: Can I get a little clarification, here? Is this what the Easter Bunny does now? He just goes house to house, messing up people's lives?
E.B.: Well, that's just hurtful. Besides, you're selling yourself short. They were going to shove you in the mail room. Well, excuse me, but I happen to think you're better than that.
Fred O'Hare: You don't know me! Okay? We just met.
E.B.: I can tell. You give off this aura of untapped potential.
Fred O'Hare: I do? Now, don't pull that with me, rabbit, okay? I'm too smart for you.

Don't HOP too far.
6 April 2011 | by DarkVulcan29See all my reviews

I am glad, finally a holiday comedy about Easter, and like Garfield and Scooby Doo, It mixes live action with CGI animation. Now I really liked the animation, the Easter Bunnys warehouse where they make candy for Easter is the most awesome thing since Willy Wonkas Chocolate Factory. Not to mention Hugh Laurie, Russell Brand, and Hank Azaria voice there characters perfectly, and provide much of the films humor.

Now the live action was not as funny, at times James Marsden slips by with a funny line. but other than that it's all pretty stale. Even David Hasselhoff making fun of himself, hasn't he done enough of that already. I know what they are trying to do, a Santa Clause, but with Easter. And they did alright, but they could have done a little better.
