Hop | 2011 | PG | - 1.4.1

On the eve of taking over Easter Bunny duties, a young rabbit (voiced by Russell Brand) runs away to Hollywood to pursue his dream of becoming a drummer in a rock band. At the same time, a man (James Marsden) is being thrown out of his parents' house because he doesn't have a job or any aspirations. When the two meet, their lives are given new direction. Also with Kaley Cuoco, Hank Azaria, Gary Cole, Elizabeth Perkins, Hugh Laurie, Tiffany Espensen, David Hasselhoff and Chelsea Handler. Directed by Tim Hill. [1:35]

SEX/NUDITY 1 - A rabbit tries to enter the Playboy mansion and tells Hugh Hefner (on a security speaker) that the newspaper says that this is where "Sexy bunnies live."
 A woman cuddles a rabbit thinking that it is stuffed and we see the rabbit hugging the woman and playing with her hair. A chick asks another chick how his backside looks and the chick replies, "That's a wonderful butt."
 A man showers and we see his bare shoulders and chest. A woman wears a low-cut T-shirt that reveals cleavage. Several women wear low-cut tops and dresses that reveal cleavage, bare backs and shoulders.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A rabbit is struck by a car (we hear a crunch and see the rabbit lying on the road moaning although he is unharmed).
 A man wearing a safety suit is chased and tackled by two large dogs, and they bite his arms viciously and he tries to get them to heal (the man is unharmed). Two dogs chase a man over hedges (no one is harmed). A rabbit slaps a man in the face. A man is shot in the face 6 times with tranquilizer darts and falls to the floor unconscious. A rabbit blows a tranquilizer dart into a man's neck and he collapses. Two dogs are shot in the face and neck with tranquilizer darts (we see them sleeping with the darts sticking out of them).
 A rabbit looks into a boiling pot and sees what he thinks is another rabbit being cooked (it is a turkey); another rabbit looks into the pot and sees what he thinks is a cooked rabbit.
 A man that has just struck a rabbit with his car picks up a large rock and holds it over the rabbit to put him "out of his misery"; the man stops when the rabbit talks to him. A rabbit is shot with a sticky candy cannon and falls over immobilized onto a conveyor belt that transports him through a series of spinning saw blades, which he must dodge (he does and he is unharmed). A man and a rabbit are tied into a large basket and lowered toward a boiling cauldron of liquid (they jump free before being lowered into the liquid).
 Many chicks jump onto a rabbit, he yells and falls over. A rabbit attacks a chick, the chick hits the rabbit with a scepter, throws him across the floor and then body slams him (we see the rabbit and he's OK later). A chick with a large scepter hits another chick in the head and he falls down.
 Three rabbits are sprayed with liquid chocolate, it hardens and they fall over unable to move. A woman with a broom chases and yells at a rabbit as it drops a basket filled with candy and runs away. We see a candy factory where candy spurts out of extruders and eyeballs are slapped onto the sides of chocolate bunnies' heads. A man shoves a rabbit in a desk drawer and closes it. A rabbit pokes a man in the abdomen using a wooden spoon, he raises it to strike the man and the man stops him. A man wakes up tied at the wrists and ankles and surrounded by angry chicks and rabbits.
 A girl kicks a man in the leg. A man trips over hedges several times and falls on the ground (he's OK). A man bounces off an exercise ball and rolls down a hill. A chick morphs rabbit ears, two large feet, two large front teeth and a bushy tail.
 A man is startled and runs away when a rabbit talks to him; he runs into a house and grabs a large pan to hit the rabbit with (he does not use it). A rabbit is taken to a wilderness and a man tries to leave him there. A rabbit is locked in a dark garage. A rabbit jumps into a tunnel and we see that he is traveling under the ocean and he pops out of a hole and lands hard on the ground (he seems unharmed). Three rabbits jump into a tunnel, pop out of a hole and land on the ground (one lands awkwardly but she is OK). A rabbit rappels out of a large statue's nostril. A young boy wakes up to see a flying vessel landing in is yard and it opens up to reveal many other rabbits and chicks inside.
 A chick says, "Slice him, dice him and pulverize him," talking about a rabbit. A woman tells a man, "If you screw up, I'll kill you." A family has an "intervention" and tells their adult son and brother that he has to find a job and move out of the house. A rabbit says, "I have a sense of impending doom." A rabbit tells a man, "I'm sorry I dented your bumper with my face." A rabbit asks, "What if I blow it?" Two fathers are dismissive of their sons' dreams. A rabbit asks a man "Is this where you tell me you want to see other rabbits?"
 A rabbit says, "I wanted to vomit. I can't vomit so there's a lot of …" and the rabbit demonstrates dry heaving several times. A chick eats two bunches of large earthworms. A chick holds his beak and gags but does not vomit. A rabbit spits out a piece of jerky that a man give him to eat. A rabbit defecates jellybeans; we see him squat and then move away to reveal a pile of jellybeans, and a rabbit says, "I jellybeaned all over your dreams." A woman eats a jellybean (that presumably a rabbit defecated) and a man watching her gags.
 A flying vehicle flies erratically causing the driver to complain and the vehicle crashes (no one is harmed). We see a room completely trashed with food strewn around; a bathroom is flooded with bubbles and everything in disarray while a man yells at a rabbit.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
