Quotes

Voice at Playboy Mansion: [Through an intercom] Listen to me, this is the Playboy Mansion, it's not a hotel.
E.B.: [Looking into a map] Yeah, right. But it says here that ever since 1971 the Playboy Mansion has been home to sexy bunnies from around the world.
Voice at Playboy Mansion: Friend, I can't even see you. Please step forward.
E.B.: [Stepping closer, face still in map] Now, I'm telling you that I am both a bunny and incredibly sexy.
Voice at Playboy Mansion: I don't have time for this.
[Clicks intercom off]
E.B.: Hello? Hello? Maybe this is the rags part of my rags-to-riches story.

Crazy Credits

In the opening Illumination logo, Dave the Minion is wearing bunny ears and happily skipping while spreading Easter candy out of his basket, until he runs into his buddy Stuart. He then turns around and shakes his bunny tail, but Stuart is far from impressed. Dave then turns back around and throws candy in Stuart's face. Dave chuckles nervously, then takes his bunny ears off. See more »

Great family entertainment
27 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to attend an advanced screening of Hop in London, and I decided to bring the whole family along.

Hop is a beautifully animated, funny, exciting family film. The plot is more sophisticated than Alvin and the Chipmunks, making it much more interesting and enjoyable for adults, and the bunnies and chicks are adorable!

The only criticism I have is that some parts of the film are too similar to Christmas films - something I would of thought the producers would go a long way to avoid! For example, the Easter Bunny rides a sleigh! Is that all they could come up with!? Also, I would say the voice cast are much better than the live action cast, and James Marsden does not make a particularly convincing out of work slacker.

But apart from that, Hop is a fun family film, and I would recommend this a lot!

Also, I think the critics are completely wrong! I cannot believe how inaccurate the reviews are! When I walked out of the cinema, every child in the room's face was filled with satisfaction and delight, so do not listen to the critics.
