YMMV / Hop

  • Critical Research Failure The factory is said to have been running 4000 years, making it more than twice as old as the holiday it serves.
  • Ear Worm: Dynamite.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The Pink Berets, to the point that most critics felt that the movie should've been about them.
  • Fridge Logic:
    • Why on earth would the Easter Bunny only have one son to pass the title down to?
    • Fred lampshades the logic of why a rabbit drops off eggs around the world instead of something that makes more sense, like a chicken.
  • Ho Yay: Fred and E. B. have a fair bit between them, oddly enough. The coronation scene is played like a wedding!
  • I Am Not Shazam: There's no one in the movie actually named Hop.
  • Idiot Plot: The Easter Bunny Could Have Avoided This Plot if he told E.B. that he can both take up his legacy and be a drummer because the Easter Bunny only has to work one day a year.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Carlos's transformation. Hands down.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: For a movie with a Be Yourself aesop, you'd think that EB wanting to be a drummer and Carlos wanting to be the Easter Bunny would compliment each other and support the message. See Unfortunate Implications below.
  • Uncanny Valley: E.B. His facial features and fur are just so realistic, but the proportion of his head and body...
  • Unfortunate Implications: Rebel Taxi's review points out how the film plays it's Fantastic Racism a little too straight: in addition to chicks being depicted as good for nothing but slave labor, Carlos is framed as being in the wrong for wanting to be the next Easter Bunny, despite being not only more competent but also more passionate than EB. The fact that Fred, a human, is ultimately given the job despite EB's father insisting that the title can only be passed down through blood and to other rabbits, not to mention Carlos would be turned into a bunny just by holding the Egg of Destiny, suggests that he's simply prejudiced towards chickens. It doesn't help that Carlos does have an evil agenda, making it seem like someone with racist conspiracy theories is Properly Paranoid. The review notes that it breaks the Be Yourself aesop and becomes "Be yourself, but only if it doesn't challenge societal standards too much."
  • What The Hell, Casting Agency?: What in God's name are The Blind Boys of Alabama doing in a video game recording studio in a movie for kids who in all likelihood have never heard of them (besides playing a rippin' cover of "Higher Ground")?
