In England’s Lake District Peter Rabbit, his cousin Benjamin, and his triplet sisters Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail, spend most of their days picking on Mr. Joe McGregor and stealing vegetables from his garden. They are friends with a local woman named Bea who spends her time painting pictures of the rabbits as well as the surrounding nature. Bea takes on a mother-like relationship with the rabbits due to the death of their mother and father. One day Peter accidentally leaves his jacket in McGregor’s garden and goes back to retrieve it. McGregor spots and catches him, but suddenly dies of a heart attack. Enthralled, Peter invites all of the woodland critters, and then takes over McGregor’s old house.
Meanwhile in London, McGregor’s nephew Thomas works at Harrods department store where he waits for a promotion. He coldly accepts the news about his uncle’s death, but is infuriated over not getting the promotion and is fired for losing his temper, which proves to be as short as his uncle’s. When he learns that his uncle’s house is valuable, he decides to refurbish it so he can sell it and start his own toy store to rival Harrods. He kicks out Peter and his friends and begins to secretly wall up the garden, despite Bea’s objections. When Peter and Benjamin sneak back into the garden, Thomas catches the latter and attempts to drown Benjamin. Peter and the triplets rescue him and Thomas accidentally tosses the binoculars that Bea had given him earlier.
Thomas and Peter start a war with each other by setting up traps and other offensive nuisances. Thomas and Bea end up falling in love with each other, which causes Peter to become jealous and wanting to separate them more. Peter soon angers Bea when he unintentionally ruins her paintings during one excursion, and soon she also turns on Thomas when his violent tendencies begin to show. This all culminates when Thomas throws dynamite at Peter’s burrow, and uses it to attack Peter in the garden, before telling him that his antics caused him to become aggressive. When Peter detonates the dynamite to prove to Bea that Thomas was using it, he ends up knocking down the tree on top of the burrow, which crushes Bea’s art studio. Thinking that Thomas was responsible for the detonation, Bea breaks up with him, and he goes back to London to work at Harrods again.
Peter feels bad for what he has done, and upon learning that Bea intends to leave the neighborhood, he and Benjamin head to London to find Thomas at Harrods. They make up and rush back to the country where Peter reveals that he had activated the detonator, and he and Thomas apologize to Bea for their fighting. Thomas discovers that he cannot go home because a snobbish couple, whom Thomas had an ugly encounter with prior, had just bought the house. Peter and his friends use their tricks to force the couple out of the house, allowing Thomas and Bea to move back in. In a mid-credits scene, Thomas sets up his own toy shop in the village, and Bea begins to write and illustrate books based on Peter and his friends.
Watch The Trailor-;
The latest hybrid live-action/animated flick from Sony Pictures Animation, you probably won’t be able to stop picturing Beatrix Potter rolling over in her grave at the legacy of her beloved little bunny. But, like 2010’s Alice in Wonderland and the entirety of Matt Damon’s Jason Bourne series, just because something doesn’t remotely resemble its source material doesn’t mean it can’t still be entertaining. And Peter Rabbit is.
Playing like a perfect blend of Paddington’s whimsy (and CGI technology) and the cartoonish shenanigans of Home Alone and the Looney Toons cartoons, Peter Rabbit appeals squarely to the pre-teen and younger set, while also giving adults enough to enjoy that they’ll be able to avoid constant eye-rolls.
James Corden provides the voice of the titular rabbit, who spends his days trying to pilfer from the veggie garden of old Mr. McGregor (Sam Neill) in the English countryside. Peter’s sisters Flopsy (Margot Robbie), Mopsy (Elizabeth Debicki), and Cottontail (Daisy Ridley) are along for the ride, too, along with many of the original characters from Potter’s classic books.When McGregor keels over from a heart attack, his great nephew Thomas (Domhnall Gleeson) inherits the house and garden, but he’s a city guy angling for a promotion at Harrod’s and only wants to sell the house and get back to London.
Peter and his friends, meanwhile, have moved into the vacated house and made a mess of the place while enjoying the unfettered garden access. When Thomas arrives to inspect his inheritance, the movie kicks into gear, as the faceoff between man and rabbit gets underway.Echoing the goofball violence from Home Alone, the movie provides plenty of opportunity for both Thomas and Peter to devise a variety of torturous methods to make the other vacate the premises. From electrical fences to dynamite, nothing is off limits, and heaping helpings of slapsticky violence ensue.
Complicating things is Bea (Rose Bryne), the comely neighbor who has befriended Peter and his buddies and who spends her days creating paintings of them. When she and Thomas end up falling for each other, Peter is left out in the cold, and the war between man and bunny escalates. Feelings are hurt, accusations fly, and things naturally get way, way out of hand.
Director Will Gluck (Easy A, Friends with Benefits) ensures Peter Rabbit walks the fine line between cute little kids movie and Three Stooges-esque comedy, infusing the film with just enough heart to keep the whole family invested. And the witty script, which Gluck co-wrote with Rob Leiber, gives the voice cast (and the real-life humans) plenty to work with. It may not resemble anything close to what Beatrix Potter created more than a hundred years ago, but today’s Peter Rabbit is still a marvelously fun way to while away ninety minutes.
