My family and I had the opportunity to see an advanced screening of the movie "HOP" which comes out in theaters April 1st thanks to Socialmoms.com and Universal Pictures.
From the makers of "Despicable Me", this movie stars James Marsden (Fred O'Hare), Russell Brand (voice of E.B.), Kaley Cuoco (Samantha O'Hare), Hank Azaria (voice of Carlos & Phil) ,
E.B., the teenage son of Mr. and Mrs. Bunny, was suppose to take over the rein of being the Easter Bunny from his father but runs away from his home at Easter Island to chase his dream of being a drummer in Hollywood. When reaching Hollywood and searching he gets hit by Fred, a man without a clue what to do with his life. Together, they both discovered who they were meant to be.
Our overall opinion of the movie was positive. "HOP" is a live action, animated film. The animated parts of the film blended perfectly with the live action. It has lots of laughs and is a pleasure to enjoy with the whole family. I noticed in the theater every child was completely engaged in the movie, along with the adults. E.B. is a bunny to fall in love with, I certainly did!!
So go hop to a theater near you April 1st and see this fun, family friendly movie for all to enjoy. I'm sure it will not disappoint!
