How does one feel when their cartoon film outshines their current live-action flick at the box office?
Actor, comedian, author and legendary swordsmen Russell Brand has two films in theaters at the moment: epic bunny flick “Hop” and unnecessary remake “Arthur.”
“Hop” is bringing home the bacon. It made $22 million over the weekend, aout $10 million more than the remake of “Arthur,” which originally starred Dudley Moore. “Arthur” scored a depressing 25% on the coveted Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer.
The best review came from the angriest movie reviewer on the planet, NYMag’s David Edelstein, who says Brand delivered a “career-killing performance.” Clearly Edelstein missed “Get Him to the Greek.”
“Hop” fared even worse with the critics, scoring a 24% on the Tomatometer. Walking in Dudley Moore’s footsteps isn’t easy. Being the Easter Bunny’s teenage son clearly isn’t, either.
