Consensus: It's impressively animated, but Hop's script is so uninspired that not even James Marsden's frantic mugging can give it any bounce.

Kids will love Brand's frenetic drumming take on E.B., adults will love that there are a few clandestine adult jokes.

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.

They should have just brained the bunny. Would have gotten people talking.

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.

A fun and funny mix of live action and animation that puts the hop back into Easter.

Hop integrates animated characters into live-action settings, relying on director Tim Hill to handle the logistics of convincingly blending both worlds.

A chip off the old munk -- "Chipmunk." And that's not a good thing.

From the creators of Despicable Me, a great family film, comes "Hop," an overly cheesy film with a plot that a child could have thought of. It is very… More

Good movie for kids, I think Russell Brand should permanently move to voice acting. That being said this movie has juvenile humor for juveniles, not for adults.
