Who cares, it’s Easter Weekend and we’ve got movies
It’s Easter. And while the Easter Bunny is great, we’re already feeling guilty for all the Cadbury Eggs we’re going to inhale on Sunday. Don’t even get us started on the Peeps.
But you want bunnies, so we’ll give you bunnies. Here are some of our favorite movie bunnies for your Easter weekend.
Our favorite non-Easter bunny has got to be Frank from Donnie Darko. Not only does he have a killer bunny mask, but being a “manipulated dead” just sounds cool too.
The pink bunny that Cameron Poe (Nicholas Cage) is trying to bring to his daughter in Con Air is another favorite of ours. So, put the bunny back in the box and get watching.
Family-friendly fur balls
Don’t worry we didn’t forget that Easter is for kids. So, we’ve filled this Easter basket with kid-friendly favorites as well.
We’ll kick it off with Thumper, from Bambi. He’s as friendly and beloved as the Easter Bunny himself, and every generation should watch him in this Disney classic.
Of course, there’s E.B (two guesses what that stands for) in Hop. Didn’t see it? Over 20,000 Vudu fans have, and they’ve given it a 4-star rating – proving it’s worth your eyes and ears, and that Russell Brand might still be relevant.
But in terms of rabbit-themed live-action animation, there can be only one…
And that’s Roger Rabbit. Who Framed Roger Rabbit is probably on the edgier side of family movies. But it is PG, and most of the innuendo will go over kids’ heads. Jessica Rabbit though, well, let’s just say that she’s not bad, she’s just drawn that way. So why not take this blast from the past for a whirl, p-p-p-p-please?
Talk about a bad hare day
Now that the kids are occupied, let’s get to the sc-hare-y movies. Beaster Day and Night of the Lepus are b-horror movies (b for bunny of course, ok, b for bad – but in a good way) that are as campy as their names. Night of the Lepus is especially great if you’re looking for some old-school horror hijinks. And did we mention that you can watch Beaster Day for FREE?
Well, that’s no ordinary rabbit
Finally, an honorable mention goes to “the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set your eyes on.” Of course we’re talking about the Rabbit of Caerbannog of Monty Python and The Holy Grail. “It’s got a vicious streak a mile wide, and huge, sharp…eh…he can leap about…look at the bones!”
But no matter which Easter Bunny you choose to watch, hop to it, the weekend won’t last forever. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’ve got some Peeps to eat. Happy Easter!
