Professional Easter Bunnies are layed off due to corporate downsizing. Mike and Hank love their job breaking into the homes of their customers on Easter-Eve to hide chocolate eggs for the little children. Two bachelors--compared on the DVD box to the Odd Couple--wear their fuzzy pink-and-white Easter Bunny suits 24/7: while sleeping, smoking cigarettes, taking hits from a bong, falling down drunk in an alley, attempting suicide, etc. Things go from bad to worse when one bunny admits to the woman he is in love with that he has been peeping in her window at night, watching her undress. "Hank & Mike" is an absurd, quirky comedy, well worth watching if you like absurb, quirky comedies. What was missing were well-developed subplots to prevent the storyline from becoming too flat and stagnant. Joe Montegna's talent is wasted as the brooding CEO whose hands are tied by the ruthless capitalist Board of Directors; his character should have been more developed and more integrally involved with the struggles of the bunnies. And the charming but painful storyline of the love-interest is dropped without resolution.
