Factual errors:
When E.B. first arrives in Hollywood he runs past the Hollywood sign at night and the sign is lit, but the Hollywood sign is not lit at night.


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?

User Review

Don't HOP too far.

Rating: 6/10

I am glad, finally a holiday comedy about Easter, and like Garfield and
Scooby Doo, It mixes live action with CGI animation. Now I really liked
the animation, the Easter Bunnys warehouse where they make candy for
Easter is the most awesome thing since Willy Wonkas Chocolate Factory.
Not to mention Hugh Laurie, Russell Brand, and Hank Azaria voice there
characters perfectly, and provide much of the films humor.

Now the live action was not as funny, at times James Marsden slips by
with a funny line. but other than that it's all pretty stale. Even
David Hasselhoff making fun of himself, hasn't he done enough of that
already. I know what they are trying to do, a Santa Clause, but with
Easter. And they did alright, but they could have done a little better.
