Somehow, Someone Has Made Russell Brand Adorable

By TK | Trailers | November 24, 2010 | Comments ()


When news broke a while back that James Marsden (X-Men, Pineapple Express, 27 Dresses -- How's that for a resume) would be be starring in Hop, a movie about a guy that hits the Easter Bunny with his car and then has to somehow save Easter, I was skeptical. Then I learned it was one of those live-action/animation hybrids, and I started getting annoyed. Then I found out that it also stars Kaley Cuoco, the pretty-yet-vapid blondling from "The Big Bang Theory" and "8 Simple Rules Why No, You Can't Make John Ritter Jokes You Insensitive Fuckwit," and I threw my hands up in the air.

Then, I found out that it stars Russell freaking Brand (who I enjoyed in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but have hated in near-everything else) as the Easter Bunny's voice, and is directed by the guy who wrote "Spongebob Squarepants" and directed Alvin And The Chipmunks and a Garfield sequel, and I knew we'd entered some sort of fucked up kiddie movie Twilight Zone.

This movie... it is not meant to be.

And fucking THEN, I saw this:

Well, shit. Now I've circled back to interested again, mixed with a teensy smidge of "awww." This trailer was the smartest decision the producers could have made.

Bloody hell.
