HOP arrived on BLu-ray Combo Pack and DVD this week from Universal Home Entertainment. Tim Hill (Alvin & the Chipmunks) directed the this mix of live-action and animation from producer Chris Meledandri's Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me). James Marsden, Russell Brand, Hugh Laurie, Hank Azaria, Kaley Cuoco, Gary Cole, Elizabeth Perkins, David Hasselhoff, and Chelsea Handler star.
As with many Universal discs of late, HOP has a bunch of extras. The better part of the features is the mini-movie that we shared earlier. I think that the two interactive bits of the "U-Control" experience are pretty gimmicky. The first feature is bothersome, E.B. sends you on-screen messages throughout the movie. Secondly audiences can track the underused Pink Beret rabbits that hunt E.B. There are also 18 minutes of featurettes that are pretty run-of-the-mill. Hank Azaria's and Hugh Laurie's sections were the best of the bunch.
