I'd see Russell Brand and James Marsden's new movie 'I Hop' if it were retitled 'IHOP'

Posted on

James Marsden clearly doesn’t want to be the star Mandi Bierly thinks he is. That’s someone who “after playing solid, decent men in Superman Returns and The Notebook, shouldn’t have to revert to a man-child who hangs out with a CGI rabbit that probably won’t be as funny in the US as he is in the UK.” You see, Marsden is signed on to co-star with Russell Brand in the live-action-CGI hybrid comedy named I Hop. Marsden plays an out-of-work slacker who accidentally injures the Easter Bunny, who will of course be Russell Brand. That sounds crazy. You know it does when my proposed film centering around two IHOP employees who engage in a year-long Create-A-Face Pancake battle sounds less crazy than the real movie. Whoever whipped-creams more sublime smiles, through which you can tell that the pancake is truly happy…WINS!

Which movie would you rather see? Do you want James Marsden to be the star Mandi Bierly thinks he is?
