8 Egg-cellent Easter Movies on Amazon Instant Video
Product description from Amazon
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. “The laughs don’t stop in this movie treat for all ages!” — Pete Hammond, BOXOFFICE
My description is that it was so funny and everyone in the family enjoyed watching!
2. Zootopia (PG)
Disney presents an action-comedy adventure set in the all-animal city of Zootopia. Determined to prove herself, Officer Judy Hopps jumps at the chance to crack a case, even if it means partnering with fast-talking Nick Wilde to solve the mystery.
3. Alice in Wonderland (Disney 2010) (PG)
Alice, an unpretentious and individual 19-year-old, is betrothed to a dunce of an English nobleman. At her engagement party, she escapes the crowd to consider whether to go through with the marriage and falls down a hole in the garden after spotting an unusual rabbit. Arriving in a strange and surreal place called “Underland,” she finds herself in a world that resembles the nightmares she had as a child, filled with talking animals, villainous queens and knights, and frumious bandersnatches. Alice realizes that she is there for a reason–to conquer the horrific Jabberwocky and restore the rightful queen to her throne.
4. The Secret Life of Pets (PG)
Comedy superstars Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet, and Kevin Hart make their animated feature-film debut that finally answers the question: what do your pets do when you’re not home? When their owners leave for the day, pets from the building gossip with their friends, satisfy their sweet tooths, and throw outrageous parties. But when a pampered terrier (C.K.) and his unruly new ‘roommate’ from the pound (Stonestreet) get lost in the urban jungle of New York City, they must put aside their differences to survive the epic journey back home.
5. Space Jam (PG)
In Space Jam, the owner of Moron Mountain amusement park is determined to turn the Looney Tunes gang into his latest attraction — whether they like it or not! But he hadn’t counted on the clever antics of Bugs Bunny and company or the unbeatable basketball skills of NBA superstar Michael Jordan. Jokes and big laughs take the court in this action-packed film that pits the Tunes team against the Monstars. Lots of guest appearances from NBA greats, including Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Muggsy Bogues, Shawn Bradley and Larry Johnson.
7. I think this one is going to be the winner- Rise of the Guardians! It’s a big favorite with us for many holidays. The Easter Bunny is just so full of … eggs. Yeah that’s what we will call it. He’s tough and smart and comes from the land down under. Don’t mess with the Easter Bunny!
