HOP Blu-ray/DVD Release + Give Away

As many of you may already know HOP was released on Blu-ray and DVD March 23rd, just in time for Easter! This is a fun, family friendly movie. Perhaps it is because I’m getting older but the holidays just get more nostalgic as the years go by, and we had just so much fun watching this with our daughter.

From the makers of Despicable Me comes an all-new comedy about candy, chicks and rock n roll! He was destined to be the Easter Bunny, but all he wanted to do was rock! When teenage E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand) leaves for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream to become a rockstar drummer, he meets Fred (James Marsden), an out-of-work slacker with his own lofty goals. Together the two encounter a series of hilarious mishaps and misadventures and in the end help each other recognize the importance of family.

We enjoyed the story and jokes a lot, and my daughter was remembering with swiftness, the funny lines so she can spout them out at a moment’s notice in the future .  While E.B. and Fred are both pretty cute, Phil is the character that stole my heart ♥.

After we finished watching the movie, we spent the next half hour examining the combo pack exclusive features, some of which include; an all-new mini-movie starring Carlos and Phil showing us their ‘dance moves’ (see clip below!), Carlos on Carlos: The Premiere According to Carlos, Post Coup Commentary: Carlos & Phil Tell All and many more.

The bonus features are almost funnier than the movie, one of them particularly caught our attention and that was Russell Brand: Kid Crack Ups, where Russell asks kids questions about the movie and they candidly answer him, as kids tend to do. We also really liked all the ‘Carlos’ features, it’s hard not to laugh at the bitter, greedy chicken.
