Aussie boy's thoughts
They ruined the classic cartoons for everyone. Adults with get a chuckle at some moments and little kids will adore the slapstick humour, but the 2018 Peter Rabbit movie is a pesky, irritating and stupid family comedy. It relies on silly and goofy laughs that young children usually love, including slapstick and over-the-top conversations humour, but is also just pretty boring and pointless.
Of course a lot of credit goes to the fun CGI characters alongside their fantastic voice performances featuring James Corden, Daisy Ridley and Margot Robbie. The animated animal characters are excellent and will also attract children, but every human performance is really average. The talented stars just can’t manage to save the dumb, bland, familiar story.
For families, this animation-comedy will likely entertain and get laughs, but Peter Rabbit just tries too hard to be any good. In the end it’s just another pointless waste of time. Don’t bother unless you’re viewing it with your family of young children… but no sensitive children either!
