Action/Adventure, Comedy

The Easter Bunny's wayward son, EB (voiced by Russell Brand), is two weeks away from his first holiday serving as bunny in charge, but all he can think of is becoming a rock-star drummer. To escape his destiny, EB flees to chase his dreams in sunny California—only to be nearly run over by terminal slacker Fred O'Hare (James Marsden). After some colorful negotiation, this unlikely pair team up—in a live action-animation hybrid—to help EB capture fame and land Fred a job. But when Carlos (voiced by the ever-impeccable Hank Azaria), a chick with his eye on a coup, complicates things back at Easter HQ, the two have to reassess their priorities and save Easter. If this sounds like some bizarre spring rework of The Santa Clause, it basically is. It's a gimmicky greeting card film with everything from rabbits pooping jellybeans to an inexplicable David Hasselhoff cameo. All that wouldn't be so bad if there weren't also too much emotional blathering and not enough slapstick.
