Anyone else see this formula as a standard template for many CG animated movies?
Everybody knows that Easter Bunnies are supposed to deliver candy, but what if one Easter Bunny… played in a rock band?
Everybody knows that pandas are supposed to be fat and slow, but what if one panda… became a kung-fu master?
Everybody knows that super-villains are supposed to be evil, but what if one super-villian… became a loving father of three adopted children?
Everybody knows that bees are supposed to make honey, but what if one bee… sued the entire human race in a court of law?
That last one is actually what happens in Bee Movie. Yup, I saw Bee Movie, and that totally happens. Anyway, I don’t necessarily think Universal’s Hop looks Smurfs bad, but it also seems like stale old mini-Snickers at this point.
