The kids had Good Friday off, and since it was a no school day, kind of cold and dreary outside, we decided to invite some friends over to have a HOP viewing party- complete with drumstick pencils, E.B. plush pals, activity sheets, stickers, plus some bunny fruit snacks, bunny popcorn and bunny salad. It wouldn’t be a hoppin’ good time if we didn’t include snacks, right?
The kids had tons of fun, there was lots of “air drumming” by the kids, dancing by my littlest, and everyone had an egg-cellent time! A few friends weren’t feeling well and weren’t able to make it but with my 3 kids and Jenni’s, we had enough kids to make it feel like a party and something egg-stra special.
From the makers of Despicable Me comes an all-new comedy about candy, chicks and rock n roll! He was destined to be the Easter Bunny, but all he wanted to do was rock! When teenage E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand) leaves for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream to become a rockstar drummer, he meets Fred (James Marsden), an out-of-work slacker with his own lofty goals. Together the two encounter a series of hilarious mishaps and misadventures and in the end help each other recognize the importance of family. Now available on Blu-ray & DVD!
The kids like this movie because its fun, is hip-hoppin’ and there are many silly parts to make them laugh and laugh. Any kid who’s musically inclined is going to relate to E.B. wanting to be a drummer- although most of the kids will just be in awe of Easter Island. The adults will enjoy this movie right along with the kids- it’s a nice storyline, but there are many “adult” jokes that will make us laugh along with the kids- just for a different reason.
This is definitely a great and instant holiday favorite in my house!
I received items for the viewing party in addition to the Combo Pack. Opinions are my own.
