The House Bunny (2008). Not all bunnies are furry animals, as Hugh Hefner would definitely tell you. This light-hearted rom-com is about a Playboy Bunny who wanders a little too far from the mansion, and helps to bring more life into the lives of a sorority group.
Alice in Wonderland (2010). One of our favourite bunnies on film is undoubtedly the iconic White Rabbit in the 'Alice' movies, but specifically the Tim Burton remake. Michael Sheen portrayed Nivens McTwisp, the White Rabbit in the 2010 movie alongside Johnny Depp and Anne Hathaway, and was asked by Burton to focus on the 'twitchiness' of the character.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988). Based on Gary K. Wolf's novel 'Who Censored Roger Rabbit?' this film is a murder mystery set in 1947, in a surreal world where cartoon characters, commonly called "toons", are living beings and interact with humans. If you haven't seen it, this film is worth a watch!
Donnie Darko (2001). Meet Donnie Darko (he is the one on the left), he dreams that the world is going to end, and usually, it is a menacing looking rabbit that tells him when. This psychological thriller follows the twists and turns in Donnie's life as he seeks the meaning and significance behind his troubling Doomsday visions.
Harvey (1950). Ever had an invisible friend? Well if the answer is yes, the main character of this film can totally relate. Elwood P. Dowd (James Stewart) is a middle-aged, amiable (and somewhat eccentric) individual whose best friend is an invisible 6'3.5" tall rabbit named Harvey. As you can imagine, this creates a few problems.
