Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Kids will love Brand's frenetic drumming take on E.B., adults will love that there are a few clandestine adult jokes."
‑ Laremy Legel, Film.com
"Hop is just too shrill, slick and sickly sweet for anybody's good. Watching it won't rot your teeth, but it could leave an ugly cavity in your brain."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"They should have just brained the bunny. Would have gotten people talking."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"The story is really all over the place, but it's your only choice for an Easter Bunny movie for miles around, so expect to see this one cycled around again each spring."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"It's not brilliant, but you probably already guessed that; this is a film about a mythical rabbit who poops jellybeans, after all..."
‑ Jayne Nelson, SFX Magazine
"As fake and forgettable as a marshmallow Peep, "Hop" goes down easy enough. It's the thought of a talented actor stuck on an industry conveyor belt that leaves an unfortunate aftertaste."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"A fun and funny mix of live action and animation that puts the hop back into Easter."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"A miscast Russell Brand and some poor writing make the film nothing but a decent one time watch."
‑ Amy Curtis, We Got This Covered
"Harmless but not exactly clever."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Director Hill, who previously combined live action and animation with the second "Garfield" film as well as "Alvin and the Chipmunks," has a way of telling a story seamlessly."
‑ Michael A. Smith, MediaMikes
"Though the integration of live action and animation is improving (especially a scene where E.B. cuddles with Fred's sister), it's still a slightly disorienting experience."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Hop integrates animated characters into live-action settings, relying on director Tim Hill to handle the logistics of convincingly blending both worlds."
‑ Peter Debruge, Variety
"A chip off the old munk -- "Chipmunk." And that's not a good thing."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"Hop starts out cute, but slowly dissolves into a mundane, droll experience completely derivative of Alvin and the Chipmunks and numerous Christmas movies."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"Hop is populated with humour that is slow, dated and mindless, an ADD confection of half-baked slapstick and notions of the healing power of Easter chocolate."
‑ Andrew Simpson, Fan The Fire
