Easter Bunny animation from the team behind Alvin and The Chipmunks Discuss this article

Director Tim Hill’s follow-up to Alvin and the Chipmunks is a less obnoxious affair, but it’s still low on charm and laughs. A hare-brained slice of Easter confection, Hop is at best an affable mix of live action and CG animation that bounces along with a modest spring in its step. The story concerns young rabbit EB (Brand) – heir to the Easter Bunny crown – who, on the eve of assuming the mantle from his father (Laurie), flees the family candy factory on Easter Island to pursue his dream of becoming a drummer in Los Angeles. Expect passable, if fairly unexceptional, family fodder.
