Peter Rabbit Movie Review

Peter Rabbit is the live action adaptation of Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit books.  The movie was funny in parts, but seemed to try just a little too hard to get laughs.

Peter Rabbit Movie Review

My kids (13yo & 8yo) enjoyed the movie and laughed the whole time; however, I felt that it was trying to hard to get a laugh.  The story was cute, but the movie was just okay.  The CGI was great and live-action actor Rose Byrne (as neighbor Bea) was sweet and charming.  This is one that’s made for the kids!  They will love it.

The movie gets the PG rating for rude humor and action.  There is a death on screening and the some sadness when the rabbits’ burrow is blown up.

There is no stinger at the end of the credits, but there are extra scenes/cartoons during the first part of the credits.

Official Synopsis

Peter Rabbit, the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers, now takes on the starring role of his own irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude. In the film, Peter’s feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as they rival for the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne).  James Corden voices the character of Peter with playful spirit and wild charm, with Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley performing the voice roles of the triplets, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail.

Peter Rabbit opens nationwide Friday (2/9).

There is a stinger during or after the credits….so don’t leave!
