Raucous rabbit EB (Russell Brand) is heir to his father's Easter Bunny empire, situated on the appropriately named Easter Island. The precocious bunny has no intention of hopping in his dad's footsteps, however, and escapes to Los Angeles with dreams of making it big as a rock drummer.
There, he is promptly run over by Fred O'Hare (James Marsden), a rudderless 30-something who still lives with his folks. Agreeing to look after EB as he recuperates, Fred soon finds himself dragged into a series of zany escapades as his furry friend seeks fame and fortune.
Meanwhile, on Easter Island, EB's dad is facing a coup by Carlos (Hank Azaria), an Easter chick with Communist leanings. When Fred is captured by the fluffy dictator, it's up to EB to high tail it home and save the day.
From the director of Alvin and the Chipmunks comes this similarly bright and breezy mix of live action and animation, with all the cuteness and poop jokes you might expect. Wildman Brand is curiously subdued as the buck-toothed hero, but Marsden has the comedy chops to keep the increasingly daft shenanigans entertaining.
While kids will gleefully tuck into this sugary sweet confection, adults might flag a bit quicker, but there are plenty of cheeky cameos to keep things interesting, from a prolonged appearance by David Hasselhoff to voice work from Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner.
