If you are searching for that perfect gift this Easter to stuff inside your child’s goodie basket pick-up a HOP Blu-ray DVD Combo Pack! From the makers of the blockbuster Despicable Me, HOP is a hilarious comedy about the Easter Bunny’s 17 year old (in human years) hare known as E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand). On the eve of being ordained as his father’s successor. E.B. high-tails from his home under the giant stone heads on Easter Island to pursue his dream of becoming a rock star drummer. The rebellious young rabbit destined to follow within his dad’s footsteps, ends up in the streets of Hollywood where he inadvertently meets up with Fred (James Marsden). Fred, a 30-year-old, is an underachiever slacker who is out of work and was recently lovingly kicked out of his parents’ home for failing to pull his life together. The two take up shelter together and encounter a series of hilarious mishaps and misadventures. The improbable match help each other recognize the incredible importance of family and friendship.
HOP is a treat for all ages loaded with laughs, piles of pooped jelly beans, an over sized chick named Carlos who has a sneaky plan, and an Easter Bunny sleigh pulled by hundreds of cute little fluffy chicks. There is even an appearance from the HOFF (David Hasselhoff) himself and cameo appearances of several unexpected guests! We loved it! The stunning imagery of the candy factory is absolutely fabulous!
I highly recommend you definitely get the Combo Pack if you decide to purchase HOP. It includes an all-new, never-before-seen, music-filled mini-movie, extensive bonus features and interactive games to keep the kids busy on Easter day. The Combo Packs also contain a Digital Copy of the film for a limited time, compatible with iTunes, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Android or online retail partners. This is such a great feature to have and especially comes in handy when you are away from home and needing something to entertain your children. Additionally, included is an UltraViolet copy, the revolutionary new way for consumers to collect movies and TV shows by storing them in the “cloud.” The new technology lets you instantly stream and download the movies to computers, tablets and smart phones, which can further be viewed anytime, anywhere on the platform of your choice!
