Hop Reviews

  • It's Alvin and the Chipmunks with only one chipmunk, and (if possible) even less fun.

    Owen Gleiberman — Entertainment Weekly

  • The whole thing raises questions of the type it is almost embarrassing to contemplate; it's almost like "Donnie Darko," for little kids.

    A.O. Scott — New York Times

  • Hop will win audiences over with its goofy charm.

    Claudia Puig — USA Today

  • It offers a glimmer of amusement, but only to kids still young enough to believe in the Easter Bunny.

    Sandie Angulo Chen — Washington Post

  • Brand does manage to play an obnoxious creature with a kind of charm. He feels like the only person who doesn't need this movie.

    Wesley Morris — Boston Globe

  • Despite its scattered frenzy, Hop -- thanks to its fondness for smushing together seemingly incongruous elements and Marsden's goofy, bug-eyed mugging -- is just demented enough to deliver a fleeting sugar rush.

    Nick Schager — Village Voice

  • 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

  • ...the almost willfully brain-dead tone of Hop began trying my patience right off the bat.

    Glenn Kenny — MSN Movies

  • "Hop" is hip. And sassy, speedy and slick. It's that rarest of surprises, a movie for kids that transcends age barriers.

    Colin Covert — Minneapolis Star Tribune

  • 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

  • If you're 12 or younger, you'll think it's hilarious. If you don't? It's going to be a long 95 minutes.

    Bill Goodykoontz — Arizona Republic

  • 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

  • Presented with the opportunity to do the first-ever big-budget Easter bunny flick mixing live action and animation, "Hop" gives us . . . a bunny who poops jelly beans.

    Kyle Smith — New York Post

  • Smaller kids will think E.B. is real, older kids will be bored by the story and adults will think David Hasselhoff must really need the money.

    Linda Barnard — Toronto Star

  • 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

  • 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

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

    Kirk Honeycutt — Hollywood Reporter

  • Hop has one of the cutest bunnies you'll ever see and plenty of other eye candy among its computer-generated visuals, yet there's not much bounce to the story behind this interspecies buddy comedy.

    David Germain — Associated Press

  • The only thing missing is any real wonder, imagination or comic verve.

    Robert Abele — Los Angeles Times

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

    Will Leitch — Deadspin
