5.0 out of 5 stars Very very sad but so touching! November 5, 2011
Format:DVD
My 7 year old daughter (who loves bunnies) and I watched this movie and cried the whole time. It was a great bonding experience but it tells you just how sad this movie is. Very charming but sad.

Story: An abused 9 year old Julia (whose mother is a drug addict and an alcoholic) is placed in a new foster family. Foster dad is stressed because he can't find a job. Foster mom is an artist and very loving. Foster brother is not a bad boy but has no patience for a "broken foster sister".
Julia doesn't talk or otherwise engage in family life, she only watches "Velveteen Rabbit" movie over and over again. Some flashbacks show her mother coming late at night drunk and stoned (closing a door in some guy's face) and hitting Julia for not sleeping in a bathtub like she was told. So we know that Julia has a broken heart. When the family finds a hurt rabbit in the woods, Julia gets very attached to it. The only person that can help the hurt bunniy is a weird old lady who lives on the farm with hundreds of abandoned animals. She refuses to return the bunny to Julia until the girl learns to take care of it properly. So Julia spends every afternoon after school at the old woman's farm helping with animals, and in the process of healing the bunny she heals her own heart.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brady World's Review of The Christmas Bunny July 10, 2011
Format:DVD
The Christmas Bunny -

This movie is both touching and endearing. I think both Florence
Henderson and Sophie Bolen (Julia, the little girl) put on Emmy-worthy
performances. The audiences' heart is immediately captured by Julia's
hardship and is carried throughout to a tear-filled ending. Florence
Henderson shows a side of herself that "Brady Bunch" fans will be
fascinated by. I believe all families, especially in today's tough
economic times, will be able to relate and will be uplifted by the support
Julia receives from those around her. I hope this movie goes on to become
a regularly seen Christmas staple.

I must first get this comment out of the way: Do not ever, EVER pick up a rabbit by the back of his neck! Rabbits have very delicate skin that tears easily. The producers evidently consulted an "expert" near the location that they filmed, but this is not recommended by exotics vets or any other good resource that you can find on the web, of which there are many. Every time the rabbits in the movie were grabbed in that way, I died a little inside. (OK maybe a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the point.)

!!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!!
Aside from that, the movie was very entertaining and quite sad, but, of course, there was a happy ending. The storyline was good in a family movie kind of way, but some of the subjects that were raised were pretty heavy for a young audience: The little girl's birth mother was a drug user and physically abusive and the foster family father was unemployed and angry. Additionally, the two little boys were cruel to the rabbit without much admonishment from the parents, first shooting it with a bb gun and then later putting him in a stroller on top of a sled and pushing it down a hill.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative for those thinking of owning a rabbit. December 8, 2011
Format:DVD
I laughed, I cried. It is a very touching story but what I liked most is that it covered a lot of information about rabbits. People could learn a lot from this movie. The only thing they didn't get right was the picking up rabbits by the scruff. That is unacceptable. But it did show how much goes into the care of a rabbit with facts about diet, grooming, habits, etc. It also brought to light how people treat rabbits like they are disposable. Adopting a rabbit is a decision people should not make lightly and hopefully this movie makes more people aware of this. For that reason alone, I give it 5 stars.

If you have or ever had a bunny or simply "love" bunnies, then you are going to love this movie. To me, the key element of the movie is how a young girl's love for a bunny brings her out of her shell. She obviously has had several mistrusting events dealing with humans in her young life; but immediately takes to the bunny as she sees a bunny in need of love and caring much the same as she does. An immediate respect and bonding develops.
Bunnies and most other domestic animals have a way of reaching inside of us that most humans can't. Bunnies want attention , and as my bunny mentor has told me many times, the more you give them the more they want. We can all learn something from that advice.
If you loved this movie for the bunny parts, then I suggest reading the book Rabbits: Gentle Hearts, Valiant Spirts. A whole series of short "true" bunny stories that will warm your hearts and you will discover what a great pet a bunny can be.
Bunnies make wonderful pets--loving, fiesty, curious, quiet, caring--all things you would want in a friend--whether animal or human.
Warm your heart, warm your home. Adopt a rescue bunny!!
