Peter Rabbit is without a shadow of a doubt the most uplifting and sweet quintessentially British family comedy of 2018. My expression is a bit of a mouthful but rightfully so: Peter Rabbit is the sort of movie you want to see with your kids, parents and grandparents because you will all laugh together and share lovely memories of it in the years to come.
In Peter Rabbit™, the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers, now takes on the starring role of his own contemporary comedy.
In the film, Peter’s feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as their fight to gain control of McGregor’s coveted vegetable garden and the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover Bea who lives next door (Rose Byrne) extends to the Lake District and London.
James Corden voices the character of Peter with playful spirit and wild charm, with Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley performing the voice roles of the triplets, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail.
James Corden manages to give Peter Rabbit a particularly naughty voice and personality who is brave but also cheeky and enjoyed upsetting Mr McGregor.
Gleeson plays the young nephew of Mr McGregor and also hates rabbits but slowly falls in love with Bea. He is torn between upgrading Peter the vegetable-patch security and spending time with his new female friend.
One of the funniest moments is when Peter and Mr McGregor meet at Bea’s house and start fighting behind Bea’s back and stop when she comes back into the room only to be resume their fight every time she leaves the room.

The rabbit’s eyes are so full of expression that they seem to have human emotions on their cute little faces.
