It’s A Hop Easter Giveaway!

One of the holidays where movies tend to disappoint me is Easter. Other than the Charlie Brown Easter special, nothing has ever really caught my attention.

Last year, a new Easter movie with updated jokes and a great beat was released. Hop became an instant favorite with my family. The story centers around EB Bunny, the future heir to the Easter Bunny mantle. Unfortunately for his dad, EB is more into rock and roll than chicks and chocolate bunnies. Eventually, EB leaves home to pursue his dream of becoming  a rock star drummer. While on his quest, EB meets Fred (James Marsden), an unemployed slacker with no goals of his own. While on the run from the Easter Bunny, royal guards (a.k.a the Pink Berets), and EB and Fred help each other discover the importance of family through a series of encounters and mishaps.

As the movie ended, my son was up dancing to the end credits theme, “I’ve Got Candy.” I asked him later what his favorite part was, and in reply he said, “Watching the little bunny with his shirt off playing the drums.” My husband said he found the Knight Rider plug and Star Wars jokes entertaining. Personally, I got a kick out of watching the actor I have come to know as Cyclops run around with an animated bunny. Overall, I think I can safely say that Hop has earned its place on my family’s holiday movie shelf as our favorite Easter movie. I can also say I will never look at jelly beans the same way again.

  1. Well this story is funny to me it’s about the time the Easter Bunny overslept one morning. This happened, when I was around the age that kids “found out” about the Easter Bunny. I woke up Easter morning expecting to find the ususal gifts….but there was non to be found. I was a devastated I thought I did something horrible to get nothing from the Easter Bunny. I woke my parents crying, my mother hugged me while my father quickly ran to check. He came basck telling me that sometimes the Easter Bunny “hides” the gifts and that I should look for them. This was the first time the Easter Bunny ever hid anything so I was excited again and began searching the house. The odd thing was that some places I checked woul all of a sudden have a gift when I looked a second time. I started asking questions, and that was when I learned the truth about the Easter Bunny.

  2. It usually snows for Easter here (or at least it’s way to cold to go outside and hunt eggs) so we hide eggs in the house. My oldest was three the first time he was really old enough to hunt eggs. He really didn’t get the whole idea of finding eggs. He found one and he was done. Happy with the one egg and not at all interested in finding any more. We had to coax him to look for the rest, but after he found the first one with candy in it he was hooked.

  3. My parents used to take missionary trips to the US almost every year and the families we stayed with treated my brother and I very well. If we ended up there during the holidays, we would get Christmas gifts or Easter baskets. The first Easter ever in the US, I was about 5 or 6, and they bought us giant chocolate bunnies. I had never seen one so big and I was in awe. I took one bite of the bunny’s ears and it was like heaven! On the plane getting ready to go home, I realized my mom forgot to pack the rest of my bunny and I was heartbroken and sad the whole way home like the bunny was real and became my friend. My brother felt bad and ended up sharing his bunny with me. I never forgot that feeling and everytime I walk by a chocolate bunny in the store, it reminds me of that day! LOL

  4. Every Easter is fairly funny for us, watching all the nieces and nephews look for eggs. I always enjoy hiding them.

  5. Several years ago, the family was gathered at my sisters house for a get together on Easter. Well one of my niece’s was sitting at the table with the grown ups. She was about 8 at the time. Anyway, she was playing with a hard boiled Easter egg, and I began telling her about the veronal equinox. That is where you can stand an egg on it’s end due to the atmospheric conditions. So, she tried doing it for awhile until she got bored. She asked if she could crush the egg. I told her yes, so she tried to crush it in her hand a few times without success. I told her to crack it on her forehead because it would be the easiest way. Sure enough, she tried and about knocked herself out. Needless to say the egg did not crack, and she did not want to try cracking it again. Can’t say I blame her, and she still does not believe anything I tell her anymore.

  6. The year my younger brother and I discovered that malted candy eggs make your tongue and lips turn colors. Blue was the best 🙂 Can’t wait to see my daughter discover that one day!

  7. Every year growing up we would head straight to my grandparents house after church to show off our fancy outfits. In return they would hid dyed eggs in the back yard. Apparently one year my parents failed to relay the message to my grandparents that we were going camping that year for Easter. So 3 weeks later when visiting my grandparents we stumbled upon the eggs on accident. Everyone forgot about them and after so long being out in the sun they were rotten. So my brother and I got to have fun after the egg hunt chucking them into the intercoastal canal behind their house.

  8. My funniest Easter memory would probably be from last year. We introduced our son (1 1/2 at the time) to Peeps. He seemed amazed and disgusted at the same time. The expressions he made were hilarious!

  9. My funniest easter memory is when my brother and I were sitting on the porch eating those little chocolate eggs that are wrapped in colorful foil. My brother pops one into his mouth then starts to panic almost chocking and spits it out, come to find out he never took off the foil wrapping from his egg, he thought it was ‘part of the decoration’

  10. Ours actually happened this year (we do ours on the first day of spring). After my son had collected all the eggs, he set about opening them, enjoying finding toys and candy inside. Then he opened one more, at which point he goes, tentatively, “Mom?!?!” and hands me the egg. Sitting inside the egg, along with the candy, was a slug! It had somehow managed to wriggle inside the little air holes in the egg! (I returned it, and the egg, outside…)

  11. Every year growing up my brother and I would find candy the Easter Bunny had hid a couple weeks later. Whoops!

  12. When I was in grade school (or maybe even middle school), I woke up one Easter morning to find a Jolly Rancher on the floor outside my bedroom door. A few inches down the hallway there was another, and another. A whole trail of Jolly Ranchers led to the coat closet across the house in the living room. I opened the door and a huge purple rabbit (a gift on a previous Easter) fell down from the top shelf. It was meant to fall on me–the only part of the plan that didn’t go perfectly. Inside the closet was a big Easter basket full of goodies. My Daddy knows how to treat his little girl.

  13. My cousins had a fabulous big Victorian house that was perfect for hiding Easter eggs. Well one year we found a real hard boiled egg from the previous year- ewwwwww !

  14. Some how last year my son had a honey packet in his easter basket (from a fast food place..must have just got tossed in on acident). Well, my son wondered why the Easter bunny brought him honey…so we had to tell him that the Easter bunny knew that my son liked honey so well that he brought him some! Now from time to time when my son eats honey he says, “isn’t that funny that the Easter bunny brought me honey!” Gotta love it!!
