Title: Hop
Media Type: Feature Film
Director:  Tim Hill
Studio: Universal
Genre: Children’s

My Review: This is just going to be a really short collection of opinions, as it’s been more than a week and I’m a bit behind on reviews.

First of all, let’s be honest about what this film is. In essence, it’s Alvin and the Chipmunks, minus the singing. Not that that’s a bad thing, I enjoyed Alvin and the Chipmunks, it was very cute. But I do get slightly annoyed when someone goes “Hey, this film did really well, let’s change one little thing, and BAM we’ll have an instant best-seller!” (<—that’s actually a major reduction of what happens. I think Hop was slightly more original than that. But it still annoys me that this is probably what happened).

Second, bunnies are cute. So is James Marsden. Automatic plus for me =)

Third, I didn’t laugh at many of the jokes, but I can see how a kid (the original intended audience) might. And the jokes that I laughed at, well, I laughed pretty hard.

Fourth, yeah, I’d recommend the movie, especially to anyone with small children or looking for a reminder of their childhood. No, I probably won’t ever watch it again, if given the choice of a new film.

OK, so now comes the part where I apologize profusely for not posting often enough. See, funny story, I got a job. And while it’s only part time, until school’s over, I usually have 12 hour days and by the time I get home at 10, all I want to do is drop into bed and sleep. But I am 5 reviews behind at the moment, and I promise as soon as I get a free minute I will write them up and you will have them! Thanks so much for sticking with me!
