We should be eating raspberry-flavored candy. I hate Tim Hill for also directing Alvin & the Chipmunks (2007)
 
Most kids born in 2005 are surprisingly tech-savvy for their ages. Even 5th grade boys where I live look like 2005s (they claim they were born in 2000). Why would Hollywood think they'd accept the candy? They should pretend like the candy in this movie is being offered by a stranger!

You've made a lot puns about candies. Is it because of the scene used in every trailer where Kaley Cuoco eats a jellybean the bunny pooped? I'm guessing that will be the funniest thing in the movie.Dead

I hated Russel Brand before because I thought his horrible work when hosting the MTV VMA's was the way he always was.But after watching him in movies,he's kind of funny.And this is a way for kids to like him since they can't see his R-rated stand-up*.But the Easter Bunny?There wasn't a rule that said God can't be black so I had no problem with Morgan Freeman in the ALMIGHTY movies,but I'm sure there's some rule that says the Easter Bunny can't be british.
 
And why is Kaley Cuoco in this?She's a famous and talented TV star.I understand James Marsden.He was in http://www.razzies.com/forum/cats-dogs-2-the-revenge-of-kitty-galore_forum451.html - ,and I feel he was surprised when he found out ENCHANTED turned out to be good.
 
As usual in this movies,the biggest stars in Hollywood provide their voices,and B and C-list actors play live-action roles.Are the stars ashamed of something?What's wrong with this movie?Oh,right.
 
Remember all my bitching about who receives certain Razzies?If you'd answered,we would know if Tim Hill is a nominee.You mentioned his 2 previous movies,but you forgot about THE MUPPETS IN SPACE and MAX KEEBLE'S BIG MOVE.But you know what?When he directs he sucks,but he's a good writer(ROCKO'S MODERN LIFE;SPONGEBOB).Why can't he try to do both things?
 
Writers Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio score with animated movies.But with live-action...And all we know about Brian Lynch is that he also wrote the upcoming PUSS IN BOOTS spin-off.
 
*I feel that's also why in this movies there are also cameos from celebrities kids don't know(David Hasselhof and The Blind Boys Of Alabama).

I know, right? Yuck.

Also, it looks like the studio for the movie, Illumination Entertainment likes to throw everything on the screen, starting with Despicable Me. Don't believe me? Well, my friend on YouTube, TheWMEforever, has a video for proof.

Ways to know if a movie is bad, all the trailers play Good Charlotte's "The Anthem" in the background, don't believe me? Here are a list of some other movies that used this song (I copied and pasted this from Wikipedia and i couldn't change the font color or remove the underline):  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Wedding - American Wedding , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dumb_and_Dumberer:_When_Harry_Met_Lloyd - Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dumb_and_Dumberer:_When_Harry_Met_Lloyd - - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Just_Married - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Pacifier - , The Pacifier , and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Pie_Presents_Band_Camp - American Pie Presents Band Camp.

It's been many years since the classic live action/animation hybrid "Roger Rabbit" was released upon the public. Few movies have tried to copy its charm ... so far, all have failed. This doesn't seem like it will buck that trend.

And Roger Rabbit was a mix of live action and 2D animation, while this mixes CGI animals.  In fact, how many movies were there since Princess and the Frog and Ponyo that used 2d animation?

Another thing I noticed about this movie...

The cast features voices and roles from Hank Azaria (of Simpsons fame) and Hugh Laurie (House).  It also features David Hasselhoff and Hugh Hefner, though they have been in crummy films before.  But why would those people provide voices for something that is comparable to the Alvin & the Chipmunks movies?

2-D is just so 1994! Although, there has been a small boom in stop motion and claymation movies, but of course, they all take a back seat to the all powerful Pixar movies (having Disney back you kinda helps).

What with this now having a forum and the upcoming remake of 'Arthur' under Razzie consideration, 2011 will not be a good year for Russell Brand.

You see in this filmmaking world there's two types of people my friend. Those with the knowledge of film and those who think they do but really don't.

Yeah, I would put Russ B. up there with the likes of Nic Cage and Adam Sandler when it comes to pumping out as many movies as they can in any one year...so they can get as many Razzies chances as they can?!?

R.T. gave Hop 20%: "It's impressively animated, but HOP's script is so uninspired that not even James Marsden's frantic mugging can give it any bounce."  

I guess this means he won't be up for Worst Supp. Actor. But he could still be up for Worst Couple with either Russell Brand or Kaley Cuoco. And...well,with these reviews, I don't need to mention every category Hop could be up for, right?  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Referring to a performance as "frantic mugging" is not a favorable review -- So, yes, Marsden could still be a Worst Supporting Actor contender. And Russell Brand's voicing of "E.B." could be only the second voice-over performance ever to be RAZZIE®-nominated. The first was Roseanne Barr as the voices of an obnoxious talking baby in LOOK WHO'S TALKING, TOO ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100050/awards -

Voice-over in a live-action movie, right? 

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: In Roseanne's case, yes, it was a "live-action movie." In Brand's case, the character he voices is animated, but the film itself combines live action with animation, so I guess it is slightly different...

OK.A lot of people don't know animated movies have been up for acting categories.I thought maybe you just forgot,which isn't a bad thing.Is hard to remember 30 years of history every second.

12 hours after it opens, it's up to 24% at Rotten T. Who keeps writing all those positive reviews?

Come on! Some adults do enjoy kiddie humor, nothing wrong with that. And a lot of critics (most likely parents) say things like "It doesn't try to be art, it's a kids' movie so lighten up!" Obviously, that's wrong, since a good family movie would be one the whole family can enjoy.

I'm not sure you can count a rabbit pooping out jelly beans and then Kaley Cuoco eating one of them as "kiddie humor" -- More like potty humor!

I concur. It's all otearai humor dressed up as rabbits, birdlings, and candy. And Vits, your last comment was the good one, because I can't conceive of whole families enjoying this!

I know that A Tail of Two Kitties got nominated for the 2006 awards, but Alvin & the Chipmunks didn't get a mention in the 2007 awards. Any chance HOP will?

You mean unless they bring back Worst Excuse For Family Entertainment? It's hard because the "kiddie movies" released during the first half of the year are forgettable. Even http://www.razzies.com/forum/furry-vengeance_forum430.html - , which already is literally one of the worst reviewed of this decade, dogded the Razzie bullet...or bullets. For how many categories was it considered?

Should we be afraid that we live in a world where Russell Brand is the star of the top two grossing movies of this weekend? I think so!

I don't know, I just don't care for Brand. He's slightly better than Dane Cook, and that's no great accomplishment, in my opinion.

I just saw it and gave it 3/10.

I don't think it should be up for anything other than Worst Family Movie if that comes back.I mean,it's bad but it fulfills every expectation.Brand is miscast but I wouldn't say he's bad,nor Mardsen.

Aside from uninspired plots,what these movies have in common is doubtful messages.OK,so they both grew up and they fulfill their dreams,but only E.B. made a sacrifice.
