A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later - Stanley Kubrick

"Fred, I think you and I got off on the wrong foot. You said some things, I flooded some things. Let's start over, okay?"

Welcome to the movie that will capture children's imagination like never before. Apart from Santa, the Easter bunny is the most valued seasonal greeter for your children. So on the 24th of March, treat your children to a night of wonderful and exciting imagination at the Tivoli Drive-In for a special screening of 'Hop'.

E.B. (voiced By Russell Brand), is all set to be the next Easter bunny as his father (voiced By Hugh Laurie) will soon retire and now the job of a lifetime is thrust into E.B.'s lap, but all E.B. wants out of a life is to move to Hollywood and become a drummer in a band.

Will E.B. get to become a drummer? Will E.B. step up to the challenge and become the new Easter bunny? Or will he let down all those boys and girls who rely on him so very much?

"Hey, wait. You're not surprised I'm a talking rabbit".

Then we met Fred (James Marsden) who is an out of work slacker who happens to run into E.B., and from there these two are about to have the time of their life - one that they will never forget. Fred has always believed in the Easter bunny as one year he saw the massive sleigh outside of his house and he saw the bunnies running around the neighbourhood leaving baskets of chocolate eggs for all the boys and girls. After running into E.B. he finally believes that he did not dream what he saw, in fact he knew for certain now that the Easter bunny was real all along.

Listen, this is the Playboy Mansion, not a hotel, I know, but it says 'Since 1971 the Playboy Mansion has been home to many sexy bunnies.' I'm just saying, I am a bunny and am incredibly sexy".

Fred and E.B. get themselves into a lot of mischief and slowly things start to become worse and worse. E.B.'s father has tracked them down; secret spy bunnies are after E.B., but E.B. is still trying to obtain his dream of becoming a drummer within a real band.

Will E.B. get caught and be taken back to become the next Easter bunny? Will Fred get himself into more trouble then what he needs? And will all the boys and girls get their baskets of Easter eggs this year if E.B. won't go back? And if E.B. doesn't go back, who will deliver the eggs?

With a star cast featuring Russell Brand (Get Him to the Greek, Bedtime Stories), James Marsden (X-Men Series, Enchanted), Kaley Cuoco (Big Bang Theory) and even David Hasselhoff, this movie has got everything from a wild wacky adventure to a romance to sadness to happiness. This film is everything that a child needs in order to have a good time and to re-capture their imagination.

So for a fun night out for your whole family - as this film is not only for children but for all age groups, I strongly recommend you attend the special screening of 'Hop' at the Tivoli Drive-In, which will be screening on the 24th and the 31st of March.

I award this film 3.5 out of 5 stars.
