Top 10 Movies With Rabbits in Them


Note. A version of this article appeared on the Guardian Online weekly Clip Joint series in December 2012. You can read it here.

When it comes to animals on the big screen, people always rave about the cute, funny ones, like the puppies and kittens, or the wild, exotic ones, like the elephants and komodo dragons.  However, these species tend to be typecast in movies and few display the versatility exhibited by the humble rabbit. There is no film genre the rabbit is not comfortable in, and this willingness to push new acting boundaries has resulted in a long and distinguished track record in cinema. To illustrate their range, this clip joint intends to give selected rabbits their moment in the headlights. So, be vewwy, vewwy quiet as we hunt down a few of my favourite bunny moments on film.
