Did you know the Easter Bunny defecates jelly beans? No? Nor did I, until I had the unfortunate displeasure of witnessing Hop, an atrocious kiddie film that seems to feel it should insult its viewers rather than entertain them. One such attack on our dignity takes place when E.B., the CGI-animated rabbit that is Hop's main character (and is voiced by one of Great Britain's most famous maladroit stoners, Russell Brand — oh, be still, my beating heart) excretes a pile of jelly beans on the hood of the car pertaining to our human protagonist, Fred (as portrayed by James Marsden).
Mind you, this is a family-friendly Easter flick, folks. Further liberties with our own liberties are taken earlier in the film when E.B. — who is the successor of the current Easter Bunny (voiced by Hugh Laurie) — runs away to see the world (and become a drummer in a rock band), and mistakes Playboy Mansion as a place for bunnies (get it?). Now, I'm not sure what the current rules of raising children are when it concerns this matter, but I don't think we're supposed to clue in our kids about Playboy magazine and its famous owner, Hugh Hefner. Of course, when you watch Reality TV with your kids day in and day out, what do you expect?
So anyway, after E.B. flees from Easter Island [groans], he finds himself in Hollywood and in the "care" of slacker Fred O'Hare — a grown man whose family had tossed him out earlier in the day after staging an intervention on account of his laziness. The two make quite a pair, needless to say: E.B. begins to screw up Fred's attempts at starting a life, while Fred seems to be the only person in the world that is concerned over the fact that there's a talking, animated rabbit that shits jelly beans running around.
