Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this live-action/computer-animation hybrid Easter comedy has a positive message about reaching for your dreams. Characters occasionally use insults like "idiot," "stupid," and "freak," and there's some slapstick violence and one brief scene in which it looks like the Easter Bunny might be in trouble -- but even kids will be able to tell that everything will be OK. In one early scene, E.B. tries to get into the Playboy mansion because he thinks it's a haven for rabbits, but only adults will get the related jokes, and nothing risque is shown. Although the movie is Easter-themed, it doesn't include any references to the holiday's religious meaning (which could be a plus or a minus, depending on your family's own beliefs).
E.B. flirts with Fred's sister, Sam, and sniffs her hair when she hugs him. In one scene, he refers to himself as a "sexy bunny," and in another, Fred and E.B. have a conversation that seems to be about the idea of an open relationship (though only adults will get the joke).
Fred thinks that he has nearly run over E.B. and says that he's going to "end his suffering" by taking him out of his misery, but then E.B. springs to life and starts talking. In a comedic sequence, Carlos the Chick rounds up the bunnies and tries to kill E.B. Ninja-like bunnies spit sedative darts that land in a couple of characters. A character is slapped on the cheek.
Insults like "stupid," "lazy," "idiot," and "freak."
The movie has several positive messages revolving around family and personal aspirations. E.B. and Fred both prove that if you believe that you can accomplish "big things," with enough determination, you'll be able to achieve your dreams.
Fred's Volvo station wagon is featured in several scenes. The Playboy mansion is mentioned in one scene, but nothing is shown except the gates and the bunny logo.
Drugs / Tobacco /
There are a few family dinners at which everyone's got drinks in front of them, but it's unclear whether or not they're alcoholic.
