Bad humor, british rabbits, Peter Rabbit has it all. James Corden, host of the Late Late Show, stars as the voice of Peter Rabbit in the movie by the same name. The Peter Rabbit 2018 is a live action remake of the popular children’s book Peter Rabbit written by Beatrix Potter. Peter Rabbit made $22 million on opening weekend; but in spite of this, Peter Rabbit is not all that it’s hyped up to be. Produced by Sony Pictures, Peter Rabbit was released on February 9, 2018.

 

Peter Rabbit is, not surprisingly, a rabbit who lives in the countryside outside of a fenced in garden. The premise of the entire story is Peter attempting to make the garden available for him and his siblings to feed on. The movie then makes it so the the rabbits are the ‘heroes’ and the owner of the garden, Mr. McGregor (Sam Neill), is the ‘villain’. With the death of Mr. McGregor, Thomas McGregor ( Domhnall Gleeson), his great nephew takes over as the ‘villian’.

 

However, the movie strays a bit from Potter’s original. The movie is rated PG but shows Mr. McGregor’s death on screen and includes references to drugs and alcohol.

Amy W. writes on Common Sense Media, “Allergies are NOT funny-I am totally disappointed in this movie that takes a person’s food allergy and turns it into a joke. Then they proceed to try and kill the person using this allergy as the way causing the character to have to use an Epipen to save himself.”

 

Despite many controversies, Peter Rabbit has stunning animation and weaves from the live-action to Potter’s watercolors style. Phillip Price from Rotten Tomatoes writes, “The animation is impressive and almost seamlessly weaves into live action, and then into Beatrix Potter’s classic watercolours.”

 

However, the movie has only received a 62% from critics and 61% from the audience, and one can see why. Peter Rabbit has cheap humor that doesn’t satisfy anyone. It’s terrible at laying a good punchline and hook. The movie uses repetitive cliches that one can see from miles away. They use the same jokes and half-way through it gets boring. Peter Rabbit is not worth watching, from their poor jokes to the bad writing, if you are above the age of ten.

 

Peter Rabbit is a family-friendly movie about dreaming large and seeing the adventures of life. Peter dreams of getting into the garden to feed his family just as his father once did. Although the theme of Peter Rabbit should have made it a heartwarming movie, the cheap jokes and bad humor completely ruins the entire movie.
