Peter Rabbit

James Corden stars in this live-action/CGI feature rendition of Beatrix Potter's classic character, as Peter Rabbit feuds with the owner of a veggie patch.

After Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) inherits his uncle's smalltown home and vegetable garden, his aggressive nature starts an escalating feud with Peter over both the vegetable treasure in McGregor's forbidden garden and their rivalry for the affections of the warm‐hearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne).

First published in 1902, Peter Rabbit gets a 21st century makeover, with a mischievous nature, cheeky attitude, and penchant for dance in this live-action family adventure. Computer-generated animal characters roam the real-life, present-day countryside, with James Corden voicing the titular rabbit alongside Margot Robbie as Flopsy, Elizabeth Debicki as Mopsy, Daisy Ridley as Cottontail, and Australian singer Sia providing the voice for Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle.

Beatrix Potter fans will be torn between wanting to hug a photo-real Peter Rabbit and wanting to scream at what Hollywood has done with him.

It's certainly a new spin, but those who make the leap will do so vigorously.

The computer-generated animals are charming, albeit lacking in the particular gentle winsomeness of Potter's originals.

This kids' animation is altogether lively and funny with just enough soul, even if it comes at the expense of Potter's sensitivity and delicacy.

Best described as this decade's Mousehunt.

Peter Rabbit is sometimes crass, but more often simply dull.

The movie, though set in the same serenely gorgeous Lake District countryside, resembles a sloppily tended garden plot where crude sight gags and violent set-pieces flourish like weeds, but anything resembling actual humour or delight refuses to take root.

Awfully flimsy plotting ... fails to take full advantage of terrific production values and the work of an engaging cast led by the affably energetic James Corden.

The charming Peter Rabbit inventively drags a British classic kicking (and hopping) into the modern world.
