HOP is Available on Blu-ray and DVD!

Easter is coming up quickly and my house is in full bunny mode! Having a toddler around the holidays makes everything more fun and exciting. So we do each holiday up big. So to get ready for Easter we are decorating eggs, baking and decorating cookies, reading stories about the Easter Bunny, and watching HOP.

Last night we made a party out of movie night and invited my daughter's best friends over. We received a really cool family screening kit for this event that was filled with HOP stickers, activity sheets, drumstick pencils, and an E.B. plush. I packaged a goody bag up for each kid, ordered some pizza, popped some popcorn, and popped in the movie.

From the makers of Despicable Me comes an all-new comedy about candy, chicks and rock ‘n’ roll! 
He was destined to be the Easter Bunny, but all he wanted to do was rock!  When teenager E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand) leaves for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream to become a rock star drummer, he meets Fred (James Marsden), an out-of-work slacker with his own lofty goals.  Together the two encounter a series of hilarious mishaps and misadventures and in the end help each other recognize the importance of family.

This was the perfect movie for family movie night because the kids and the parents all enjoyed it! E.B. is a fun loving, rock-and-roll teenage bunny who just can't seem to fit into the traditional mold his father has created for his son't future role as the Easter Bunny. E.B. decides to take control of his fate and escape his destiny by taking off to a world where he feels he fits in, the human world.... Hollywood. Along the way he befriends a jobless slacker, Fred, who really has no aspirations in life. While the two head off on adventures Fred begins to wonder if he could become the next Easter Bunny.

This movie is filled with great music, fun characters, silly jokes, and the Easter Spirit. The kids and the adults were rocking out with our pencil drumsticks, laughing out loud, and just having a great time.This movie would make a fabulous edition to your child's Easter Basket this year!
