"Peter Rabbit" Movie Review

by Sheryl Wall

Special coupon for Dinuba Platinum Theatre at the end of this review.

Peter Rabbit is based on the classic books by Beatrix Potter. It takes place after the classic story of Peter Rabbit, and in this film his parents have passed on. In the movie they imply that their dad was eaten by Old McGregor in a pie. It’s a live-action animated movie that starts with the surprising scene where old McGregor dies of a heart attack.

Peter Rabbit, his sisters, Cousin Benjamin, and friends all take over and wreck the garden and house thinking they had won the fight and the house and garden were theirs. But then Thomas McGregor inherits the house, and to his surprise he finds the house overrun by rabbits, and many other animals of the wild. Peter Rabbit is always getting into mischief throughout the movie and creates a hatred between Thomas and his family. The neighbor Bea, however, likes the rabbits and looks after them. Bea and Thomas start dating, but Bea doesn't see the battle Thomas has against Peter and his family. Thomas and Peter pretend to be friends whenever Bea is around, but then behind her back there are so many explosions and antics that only in fiction could they ever go unnoticed.

The animation and music were definitely the highlights in the story for me. There were a few scenes that felt like they were a bit too much to include in a movie geared towards children especially the scene of McGregor’s heart attack. However, most of the movie was fun and endearing. The details of the animation were amazing, particularly the rabbits; nothing was missed. I can see the hard work that had to have gone into this film to create it.

This was an overall fun movie for the whole family. My husband and I could enjoy it as well as our young three-year-old twins. A definite must see for all ages.

Peter Rabbit is no longer playing at Dinuba Platinum Theatres 6. However, many other great movies are such as A Wrinkle in Time, and showtimes can be found on their website.
