Have your say

The next time you tuck into the creamy chocolate of an Easter egg, spare a thought for the overworked bunny who has to distribute all of those treats to the children of the world.

Just like Santa Claus and his reindeer, the Easter Bunny and his flock of loyal chicks traverse the globe in the space of one day, secreting eggs under bushes and shrubs.

It’s little wonder that when the mantle passes from one Easter Bunny to the next, the incoming heir balks at the idea of this life of servitude.

Thus begins Hop, a relentlessly cheery and entertaining adventure for the entire family, celebrating the joys of the forthcoming holiday season.

Tim Hill, who previously directed Garfield 2 and Alvin And The Chipmunks, marshals more computer-generated critters with aplomb, seamlessly integrating his digitally rendered characters with actors for the usual array of slapstick and tomfoolery.
