Above all else, entertainment is an intuitive business. You take one British comedian, famous for discussing his battles with drug and sex addiction, and do with him the most logical thing: hire him to voice the Easter Bunny in a children’s movie. Of course, this Easter Bunny will have to be super cool and hip, to appeal to today’s youth with their iPads and Rockbands and sausage-sucking sexbots, so now the Easter Bunny plays drums and wears multiple layers of shirts and moves to Hollywood for some reason. After that, it hooks up with David Hasselhoff, a guy famous for being on a bad show with a lady who made a sex tape with a rock star with a really big penis, and later for being a terrible drunk who eats floorburgers. From there, the floorburger guy helps the cool bunny with the multiple shirts become famous for pooping jelly beans, which will be then branded and sold to children. The end. Cut and print.
Really, I can’t imagine this turning out any other way.
Blending state of the art animation with live action, Hop is a comedy about E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand), the teenage son of the Easter Bunny. On the eve of taking over the family business, E.B. leaves for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream of becoming a drummer. He encounters Fred (James Marsden), an out-of-work slacker with his own lofty goals, who accidentally hits E.B. with his car. Feigning injury, E.B. manipulates Fred into providing him shelter, and Fred finds himself with the world’s worst houseguest. [via Apple]
