HOP Storyline in 100 Words or Less
We all know that the Easter Bunny has an easy job. He works one day a year, travels the world in a single day and is loved by everyone.
Sound great? Well, it does NOT sound great to EB, the bunny whose job it is to BE the Easter Bunny this year. He finally reconciles himself to the fact that all great artists have to suffer to become great and that he will have to be the Easter Bunny.
However, young E.B. is struck by a car and the driver is forced to take in the bunny and eventually to help save Easter. In the process, both the bunny and the man are forced to grow up.

If you do not know where jelly beans came from, we'll all know you did NOT watch the trailer, LOL. And no, It is no coincidence that this Poll comes after the age recommendation for this movie. Thought we'd throw a little potty humour right here on this page.
