Until one day he dies and no one can stop them roaming across his house and lands for a full day or so. However, when one of Mr McGregor's relatives inherits the house and goes to check it out, he finds much more than he bargained for. What ensues, is a battle of wills between the new Mr McGregor and the rabbits. But when he starts to fall in love with Bea (Rose Byrne,) a real lover of all nature, his feelings towards them begin to change. But is it too late?Written by
This was the first Sony Animation film that was not from Aardman Studios to focus on British accents, since the film is set in the U.K. See more »
The workers that Thomas McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) speaks to in the hardware store speak in very bad attempts at English accents, indicating that they were almost certainly Australian supporting actors (most of this film was filmed in Australia). The irony here is that Gleeson himself is an Irish but speaks in an impeccable south east English accent in the film. See more »
I'm allergic to blackberries.
*Allergic* to *blackberries*?
Is that even a thing? Is that where we've gone to? I mean, suddenly *everyone* is allergic to *everything*!
[yelling at Thomas]
Stop using it as a crutch!
You know, some people do have legitimate medical conditions.
Of course, of course, it's a real struggle, my heart goes out to them, it's very tough, very sad, I don't want to get any letters

But THIS guy, come on!

My wife and I had to decide between this and "Forever My Girl". It was the toss of a coin for her, but I really don't like anything country. We were both so glad we chose this one. Great story, drama, love story, funny all at one time. With the exception of Daisy Ridley, I had not heard of any of the actors. I was not that impressed with Ridley in Star Wars, and this movie is no exception. The other actors were great, especially the actor who played Thomas McGregor and the one who voiced Peter. The animation was so good we had a hard time telling the difference between animation and live action. There was also a mix of jokes that were obviously written for animation, others for live action and still others that would work for either. They were all mixed throughout the movie. All the music seemed to be original, great and fit with the action on the screen perfect. I hope this is not the last thing we see from this creative team.
