QUICK TAKE:
Children's: The Easter Bunny's son runs away from Easter Island to live with a slacker twenty-something who is also trying to find himself.
PLOT:
On Easter Island, a long line of Easter Bunnies has operated a secret, underground factory that has made candy, colored eggs, and decorative baskets for generations of children. The current Easter Bunny (voice of HUGH LAURIE) is getting old and is looking to pass on the legacy to his son, E.B. (voice of RUSSELL BRAND). But E.B. is not sure he wants the responsibility. His real dream is to be a drummer. So, he runs away to Hollywood before being empowered by his dad's Egg of Destiny scepter.

In Los Angeles, Fred (JAMES MARSDEN) is a twenty-something slacker who has never found a job that interests him. He lives with his disappointed mother and father (ELIZABETH PERKINS and GARY COLE), who are hoping to push him out of the house and into adulthood. He has a snarky, younger sister named Alex (TIFFANY ESPENSEN) and a supportive, adult sister named Samantha (KELLY CUOCO) who tries to find him employment.

Fred saw the real Easter Bunny as a child. So, when he hits E.B. with his car, he naturally assumes that the talking hare is the fabled holiday rabbit and gives him a place to stay at the Beverly Hills mansion he is house-sitting. Together, they must dodge the Pink Berets, a team of elite ninja rabbits the Easter Bunny dispatches to bring E.B. back. Unbeknownst to all of them, Carlos the chick (voice of HANK AZARIA) -- who runs the Easter Bunny's factory back on Easter Island -- is plotting to take E.B.'s place...by any means necessary.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Yes, especially small children who really enjoyed the "Alvin and the Chipmunk" movies. It's from the same director.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some mild rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
