Hop All Ages Hit Movie!

Hop Sheds Light on Easter Mysteries

Do you know where jelly beans come from? Hop, rated PG, for some mild rude humour, is a fun family romp.

E.B. is the teenage son of the Easter Bunny, but he doesn't want to follow in the pawprints of his father. E.B. runs away to Hollywood to pursue his dream of becoming a drummer. In Hollywood, he meets Fred, an unemployed slacker who doesn't want to settle for just any job. E.B. pretends he is hurt, and persuades Fred to take him in. E.B. is a terrible houseguest. Back on Easter Island, a power-hungry chick, plots to become the Easter Chick and change Easter. E.B. discovers who he really wants to be, which brings Fred and E.B. together to a showdown to save Easter from the chick.

Hop:Movie Review

My teen and I both thoroughly enjoyed Hop. There are laughs for all ages in the movie,some of which will not even be picked up on by younger viewers.We were especially impressed with some of the extra little touches in the animation, that made E.B. a very believable character. As for the rude humour, well you will never look at a jelly bean quite the same way again. One scene in China, did give us pause, and it also must have been of concern to others too, because right at the very end of the credits, it is revisited. While this treatment does help fix the problem somewhat, we wondered how many people would even see the revisit,due to where it is placed. We think the revisited scene would have better comedic timing,if it were placed before the credits.

Hop:Special Features Review

Special features in the Hop DVD are aimed at teens and up. It was disappointing that there were no special features for younger children. Since we liked the animation so much, we hoped the special features would include insights into the animation process. The special feature that was played repeatedly in our home was the 'All Access Pass with Cody Simpson'. Have a teen daughter? Have your ear plugs ready for when they discover this section of the special features.
We give Hop four jelly beans out of five. Check it out for yourself, and let us know what you think.
Hop is now available for rental just in time for Easter at Mister Convenience, King Street East, Omemee. There are two copies of the movie,but you may want to call ahead to be sure it is available.
