Being a lifelong film lover, I was looking forward to this fun, colorful Easter newcomer. I fondly remember parking myself in front of the family room TV with my Easter basket, eagerly awaiting "Easter Parade" and "The Sound of Music."
The "HOP" trailer looked exciting, cute, and colorful, so I was expecting something at least mildly entertaining and hoping for something magical ala Pixar. But the cheery and vibrant visuals of the trailer were just a vapor that never quite materialized. Within minutes, I was wondering how this marshmallow fluff of a movie (lacking any real imagination or substance) was No. 1 at the box office.
