Starring: James Marsden, Russell Brand, Hugh Laurie
Friday 01 April 2011
Russell Brand does his winsome chirpy-cockney routine as the voice of a recalcitrant young rabbit named EB – short for Easter Bunny, the job for which he's been groomed by his dad (Hugh Laurie), but doesn't actually want.
So the rabbit runs, to a mansion in Beverly Hills and friendship with a shiftless bloke named Fred (James Marsden) who's not yet left his parents' home (Marsden is 37, surely too old even for an inadequate). Throw in some Ninja bunnies, Easter chicks and David Hasselhoff, and you have a film that... doesn't really know what it's doing. The studio asked for an Easter film, and this is what hapless Tim Hill (Alvin and the Chipmunks) and his writers delivered. Flop would be closer.
