On the eve of taking over Easter Bunny duties, a young rabbit (voiced by Russell Brand) runs away to Hollywood to pursue his dream of becoming a drummer in a rock band. At the same time, a man (James Marsden) is being thrown out of his parents' house because he doesn't have a job or any aspirations. When the two meet, their lives are given new direction. Also with Kaley Cuoco, Hank Azaria, Gary Cole, Elizabeth Perkins, Hugh Laurie, Tiffany Espensen, David Hasselhoff and Chelsea Handler. Directed by Tim Hill. [1:35]

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A rabbit is struck by a car (we hear a crunch and see the rabbit lying on the road moaning although he is unharmed).
 A man wearing a safety suit is chased and tackled by two large dogs, and they bite his arms viciously and he tries to get them to heal (the man is unharmed). Two dogs chase a man over hedges (no one is harmed). A rabbit slaps a man in the face. A man is shot in the face 6 times with tranquilizer darts and falls to the floor unconscious. A rabbit blows a tranquilizer dart into a man's neck and he collapses. Two dogs are shot in the face and neck with tranquilizer darts (we see them sleeping with the darts sticking out of them).
 A rabbit looks into a boiling pot and sees what he thinks is another rabbit being cooked (it is a turkey); another rabbit looks into the pot and sees what he thinks is a cooked rabbit.
 A man that has just struck a rabbit with his car picks up a large rock and holds it over the rabbit to put him "out of his misery"; the man stops when the rabbit talks to him. A rabbit is shot with a sticky candy cannon and falls over immobilized onto a conveyor belt that transports him through a series of spinning saw blades, which he must dodge (he does and he is unharmed). A man and a rabbit are tied into a large basket and lowered toward a boiling cauldron of liquid (they jump free before being lowered into the liquid).
 Many chicks jump onto a rabbit, he yells and falls over. A rabbit attacks a chick, the chick hits the rabbit with a scepter, throws him across the floor and then body slams him (we see the rabbit and he's OK later). A chick with a large scepter hits another chick in the head and he falls down.
 Three rabbits are sprayed with liquid chocolate, it hardens and they fall over unable to move. A woman with a broom chases and yells at a rabbit as it drops a basket filled with candy and runs away. We see a candy factory where candy spurts out of extruders and eyeballs are slapped onto the sides of chocolate bunnies' heads. A man shoves a rabbit in a desk drawer and closes it.

A rabbit jumps into a tunnel and we see that he is traveling under the ocean and he pops out of a hole and lands hard on the ground (he seems unharmed). Three rabbits jump into a tunnel, pop out of a hole and land on the ground (one lands awkwardly but she is OK). A rabbit rappels out of a large statue's nostril. A young boy wakes up to see a flying vessel landing in is yard and it opens up to reveal many other rabbits and chicks inside.
 A chick says, "Slice him, dice him and pulverize him," talking about a rabbit. A woman tells a man, "If you screw up, I'll kill you." A family has an "intervention" and tells their adult son and brother that he has to find a job and move out of the house. A rabbit says, "I have a sense of impending doom." A rabbit tells a man, "I'm sorry I dented your bumper with my face." A rabbit asks, "What if I blow it?" Two fathers are dismissive of their sons' dreams.

A chick holds his beak and gags but does not vomit. A rabbit spits out a piece of jerky that a man give him to eat. A rabbit defecates jellybeans; we see him squat and then move away to reveal a pile of jellybeans, and a rabbit says, "I jellybeaned all over your dreams."

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.




INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
