One-line Reviews (56)

I went with a 4 year old and she (like others in the cinema) just became bored.

Hop is a beautifully animated, funny, exciting family film.

The jumbling of so many cliché plot lines makes the story random and by the end none of the film was fully developed.

Therefore, its near-miss as a must-see belongs to the uneven script and the rather tame and slower direction.


The plot is more sophisticated than Alvin and the Chipmunks, making it much more interesting and enjoyable for adults, and the bunnies and chicks are adorable!

The characters are all likable and engaging, more the animated characters than the live-action characters admittedly, EB is a zany and endearing protagonist especially.


Worth watching!

Fun, Entertaining & Suitable for all of the family.

Cliché 1, the kid who doesn't want to follow his fathers wishes and sets off to be independent.

Kids were bored .

There are also an array of pointless scenes.

" Marsden's energy is completely undermined and wasted by a lazy script, sloppy CGI/live action effects and a languid voice performance by Russell Brand who sounds like he just crawled out of bed.

Tediousness reinvented .

It was very entertaining, and the audience (mostly kids) seemed to love it.

Everything about the film is harmless and cliché within its kid friendly genre, ultimately pleasing parents, who do not have to worry about what their kids see.

On the bad side, "Hop" is just more of the same boring stuff that today is presented as "family entertainment": A dumb story filled with annoying(And unlikeable characters) lame jokes, irritating clichés and stereotypes, a vague and unoriginal message...

A horribly tedious film .

Besides, the excuse of the rabbit wanting to be a rock singer is simply a rehash of the old cliché "son who refuses to follow his father's steps".

" Right then all tension is lost and the story becomes pointless.

I didn't understand the reason for the movie, LOL, it's quite pointless but nonetheless entertaining.

The film also had a lot of comedy in it and was quite entertaining.

We have a pretentious person named Russell Brand who dares call himself an actor.

Great film, most enjoyable.

Let's turn this into a cliché evil villain, Christmas (sort of) knock off.

I brought my 3yr old and he fell asleep within the first 15 minutes from boredom.

I watched this film with a 'U' rating to pass the time with my little 2 year old who also thoroughly enjoyed it!

Must really say that the movie was totally entertaining.

Entertaining .

A few other characters including Hank Azaria as the voice for Carlos were pretty well done also, and one of the much more enjoyable scenes was when Fred O'Hare pretends to be a ventriloquist with E.

And the threat by the chick trying to take over Easter is dull because, well, we all know how this is going to end because you JUST TOLD US!!!

I wanted to leave or take a nap myself actually.

Very immature, boring and not funny at all .

Don't get me wrong we don't shelter our daughter (her favorite movies are Star Wars, original of course) but a lot of stuff out there is just boring to kids.

Sadly "Hop" takes things two steps backwards with its cotton candy premise and its dull, uninspired execution.

Well did that today and we all, even myself (the most criticising of these films) enjoyed it immensely.

Overall HOP is a huge disappointment made irritating by boring Brand.

It is, quite simply, boring and unengaging for both kids and adults alike.

Its not the greatest movie ever, not by a long shot, but for a kid this is very entertaining.

There he runs into Fred and their relationship gets off to a slow start.

Right in time for Easter, the picture sets just the right tone for the arrival of the celebrated Easter Bunny - colorful, fun and full of enjoyable and likable characters.

Very immature, boring and not funny at all.

In all fairness, I'll admit that my 7 year old enjoyed it.

I was feeling in a cliché mood so I watched this for Easter.

Cliché 2, the number two guy who has a diabolical scheme to get rid of the boss so he can take over.

In a few words, I found the story to be boring, the humor to be excessively simple and trite, and the performances (with one exception) to be lacking of any life or energy.

This is where the film gets very chipmunked (whatever that means) and follows the same formulaic route as the "Alvin and The Chipmunk" masterpieces (sarcastically coughing numerous times).

While the plot does get weak at times at times incredible far-fetched, it stays engaging and is a lot of fun to watch.

There are clever lines and situations to be found but, alas, there's also too much banality.

This is not as good as that, but is still very entertaining.

While not the most original story in the world, it is a polished and fun one that is fast-paced and entertaining throughout and because of its sophistication it appeals to adults as well as kids.

His plight is rather "ho-hum, poor you" (!

Kids may love it, but as an adult it was a bit boring at moments and not very original.

It's OK as a kid movie, I guess, but I found it to be mindless drivel with a bunch of disjointed scenes.

Fourthly, no plot.
