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


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

Great film, most enjoyable.

That being said, the film is surprisingly entertaining, and though I wasn't exactly pleased with the film throughout, I was never really bored.

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.

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

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

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

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.

Awful boring lazy garbage.

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

Disjointed but entertaining .

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

Very immature, boring and not funny at all .

It's a nightmarish cocktail of all the bad parts of Alvin and the Chipmunks - obnoxious CGI talking animals; even more obnoxious talking humans; the cliche 'oh my god, you can talk' moment - mixed with all the trimmings of a bargain bin Christmas film.

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

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.

I thought their story was funny and engaging.

Entertaining .

This is a surprisingly dark, highly enjoyable, family friendly movie.

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.

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

Tediousness reinvented .

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

There are also an array of pointless scenes.

The jokes can be juvenile at times, but it's predictable plot, eye-roll-worthy situations, and simply hard to watch scenes make it far more annoying than need be.

Worth watching!

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

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!

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

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

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

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

Fun, Entertaining & Suitable for all of the family.

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.

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


I wanted to leave or take a nap myself actually.

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

Kids were bored .

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

So bad and boring.

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

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

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

Entertaining, but mostly a waste of time .

Must really say that the movie was totally entertaining.

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


" 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.

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

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

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!!!

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

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.

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

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

Fourthly, no plot.

In the end, Hop is not a good film, but a decently entertaining one for kids.

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).

Very immature, boring and not funny at all.

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

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...
