This seasonal children's yarn finds young rabbit EB (voiced by Russell Brand) reluctant to succeed his father (Hugh Laurie) as the Easter bunny. So he runs away from the family home (on Easter Island, naturally) and heads for Hollywood with dreams of becoming a rock drummer. Once there, he bounds into the life of a slacker human, James Marsden, himself at a crossroads, causing mayhem at every turn. Meanwhile, a mutinous chick plots to take over the family business. Director Tim Hill mines the same seam of cuteness as in his earlier
Alvin and the Chipmunks
, with Brand's manic characterisation helping to paper over the cracks of a flimsy story. It's all good fun for the very young, but unlike in most modern animations the film is light on pop culture references to keep grown-ups interested - apart from a questionable running gag about Hugh Hefner and an altogether different kind of bunny.
The Easter bunny's son is about to take over the chocolate-delivering business, but rejects his responsibilities and heads for Hollywood to seek fame and fortune as a drummer. He makes life difficult for the directionless slacker who takes him in, but they must work together to avert a crisis on Easter island. Part-animated comedy, starring James Marsden, with the voice of Russell Brand.
