Kids will love Brand's frenetic drumming take on E.B., adults will love that there are a few clandestine adult jokes.

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 WeitzmanFull Review
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 LaceyFull Review
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 LongFull Review
A fun and funny mix of live action and animation that puts the hop back into Easter.
-Kirk HoneycuttFull Review
Hop integrates animated characters into live-action settings, relying on director Tim Hill to handle the logistics of convincingly blending both worlds.
-Peter DebrugeFull Review
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 SmithFull Review
It offers a glimmer of amusement, but only to kids still young enough to believe in the Easter Bunny.
-Sandie Angulo ChenFull Review
A fairly undistinguished but pleasant and easy-to-take holiday movie, with slow spots and silly spots and a handful of moments of inspiration.
-Mick LaSalleFull Review
Hop will win audiences over with its goofy charm.
-Claudia PuigFull Review
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. ScottFull Review
All in all, it's hard to know for whom "Hop" is made.
-Tom KeoghFull Review
The only thing missing is any real wonder, imagination or comic verve.
-Robert AbeleFull Review
"Hop" is hip. And sassy, speedy and slick. It's that rarest of surprises, a movie for kids that transcends age barriers.
-Colin CovertFull Review
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 MorrisFull Review
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 BarnardFull Review
...the almost willfully brain-dead tone of Hop began trying my patience right off the bat.
-Glenn KennyFull Review
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 GoodykoontzFull Review
Would it kill a writer or three to find a couple of laughs in all this? You've got Hugh Laurie and Russell Brand and you can't give them a couple dozen zingers to make this thing move along?
-Roger MooreFull Review
It's Alvin and the Chipmunks with only one chipmunk, and (if possible) even less fun.
-Owen GleibermanFull Review
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 GermainFull Review
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 SchagerFull Review
A chip off the old munk -- "Chipmunk." And that's not a good thing.
-Roger MooreFull Review
The story is really all over the place, but it's your only choice for an Easter Bunny movie for miles around, so expect to see this one cycled around again each spring.
-Kevin CarrFull Review
Harmless but not exactly clever.
-Michael DequinaFull Review
Hop starts out cute, but slowly dissolves into a mundane, droll experience completely derivative of Alvin and the Chipmunks and numerous Christmas movies.
-R. L. ShafferFull Review
It's not brilliant, but you probably already guessed that; this is a film about a mythical rabbit who poops jellybeans, after all...
-Jayne NelsonFull Review
Director Hill, who previously combined live action and animation with the second "Garfield" film as well as "Alvin and the Chipmunks," has a way of telling a story seamlessly.
