Peter Rabbit (2018) Movie Script

Your altitude
Is only viewed
As an indication of your attitude
For you're only as small
As your dreams
You may be small
not big and tall
But a giant's what you
'twill be called
For you're only
as small as your dreams
I know that l--
Yeah, sorry about that.
Thats not the story we're telling.
No. We 're here for Peter Rabbit.
The hero of our tale.
A young rabbit in a blue coat
and no pants.
Hey! Pick on someone your own size.
My pleasure.
I didn't mean me.
Going into his garden again, | see.
There are safer ways
to get a meal, you know!
Yeah, but they're not as fun.
What did I tell you about
sneakin' into McGregor's?
Make sure to get you some cauliower?
That's a good boy. Now, off you get.
All right, talk to me, Benjamin.
He's mowed half the lawn,
which maybe gives us just enough time.
Look at him.
Pure evil.
Even cuts grass angry.
Hey, here's a crazy thought.
What if we dont go in,
because last time,
you almost got caught.
You're so adorable.
I could just eat you up.
That's exactly what
he wants to do to you.
Higher. Higher.
Why are you always on top?
Because I'm the oldest.
We're triplets!
I'm still the oldest.
By 16 seconds.
When's the last time
you brushed yourtail?
All right, rest time's over. Come on.
-Race you.
Not if I race you first.
No fair.
Take it all in,
because we're about to take it all in.
Sorry. I don't know why
I'm so out of shape.
| only eat salad.
It's the dressing. Get it on the side.
Orjust have a drizzle of lemon.
It'll change your life, trust me.
Right. You all know the drill.
I'm not gonna pretend
that what we're about to do
isn't reckless, foolhardy,
even dangerous.
But we will succeed,
because each of us plays a vital role
specifically tailored
to our individual talents.
Lookout. Lookout. Lookout. Lookout.
Now let's do this.
Right behind ya.
-Not a chance.
Are you afraid I'm gonna get
my foot caught in a trap
and I'll have to gnaw it off,
and then you'll call me "Stumpy"
for the rest of my life,
and I'll have a horrifying scar,
but all the real scars
will be on the inside?
Sorry you had to hear that.
It's okay. We're family.
This is a safe space.
All right, bring it in.
-We all ready?
-A | ways.
-I guess.
-Love you guys.
Now, let's do this.
It's gonna be a fun one.
Lettuce, radishes, radicchio.
I'll tell you
what's radicchio."
How easy it is to steal
this man's vegetables.
Because "radicchio"
sounds like "ridiculous."
Don't explain the joke.
I'm good!
Tomayto, tomahto.
Potayto, potahto.
No one actually says "potahto,"
have you noticed that?
Stop messing around.
I can mess around all I want.
He can't hear us over the lawn...
No, no, stop.
Get out of there.
Peter, no.
-l'm gonna put this in there.
-Don't do that.
-You think this is a bad idea?
-Yes, it's a bad idea.
I'm getting mixed signals. Yes or no?
It's a definite no.
I can't see your mouth through the gate.
No. No. No. No.
-I think you said yes.
-l'm going with "yes."
-No, no, Peter.
-Oh, God.
Oh, no.
Peter. No!
Get out of there.
Rabbit, I'm gonna put you in a pie.
Leave the jacket.
Like I did your dad.
Morning, Mr. McGregor.
Oh, it's you.
Beautiful day, isn't it?
Give me that rabbit.
You got a little something in your...
You're okay.
Are you okay?
Did he just wink?
I didn't even know we could do that.
You look very well.
That vein that's usually bulging
out of your head's really calmed down.
Have you been meditating?
This is my garden.
Let me pass that along.
This is his garden.
There we are.
I think we're all on the same page.
So these rabbits will now surrender
their natural instinct
to feed themselves.
Next time will be their last.
I'll be sure to pass that along, too.
Come on, sweeties.
This is Bea.
She 's next-door neighbor
to Mr. McGregor and the rabbits.
Guess which one she likes better?
Inside. Come on.
I'll get you something to drink.
You must stop going in there.
You almost got caught this time.
Come here, little one.
Dry you off.
Shes an artist.
She moved out to the country
to work on her paintings.
Dont feel bad if you don 't
understand them, like them,
even know which way to look at them.
They are terrible and she knows it.
So for fun, she's been painting
portraits of the locals.
But a constant reminder
of what Peter and his family
had gone through.
I promise I'll always be here for you.
And she has,
ever since their mother died.
The rain stopped.
Sorry about Dads jacket.
I'm sorry you lost Dad's jacket.
| just said that.
Yeah, but coming from the oldest,
it just kind of means more.
Just a jacket.
Dad and Mum are still in here.
And here. And here. And here. And here.
But less so with you,
since you're just a cousin,
you know. You're a nephew,
and by marriage.
I'm not taking anything away,
I'm just...
You know, I want to be accurate.
Okay, just promise me
you'll stay out of the garden.
Got it back, Dad.
Got you, rabbit.
I knew youd come.
The lady's not here to protect you now.
I've got a hankering for pie tonight.
Rabbit pie.
Is he...
That's pretty conclusive.
Very conclusive.
That means that... That I...
That I...
That I did it. I did it.
-I did it.
Got rid of him. Who's hungry?
Bite into those guys.
You went into his garden?
No. I went into our garden.
Without lookouts?
That's the sort of thing
that will get someone killed.
And it did.
McGregor's gone?
He's in a better place now.
-Real | y?
That ice cream truck
with the flashing lights.
In actuality, Peter couldn't even claim
that he gave the old man '3
heart a fright.
Credit for that goes to 78 years
of terrible lifestyle choices.
-No way.
All right, this is our land now,
so let's not go crazy straightaway.
It's ourjob to nurture it,
to sustain it,
prepare for the future.
With privilege, comes responsibility...
I'm sorry. I almost got through
that with a straight face.
Knock yourself out.
Wait for me!
I wasn't designed for running!
Sorry about that.
Help yourself to anything.
Try the tomatoes.
Look at you, big fella.
Show me your teeth.
Do like a, go like...
It was you! I knew it.
How are you? So good to see you.
Hey, little rabbit.
Got your land back, | see.
All hail the prodigal son.
-lt's no big deal.
-No, no, a very big deal.
You vanquished McGregor.
Well, if vanquished means I said to him,
I've had enough of your tyranny."
And he said, "I will put you in a pie."
And I said, "No, sir.
I will put you in a pie, sir."
It doesn't, but thank you for the party.
Was Pigling eating celery?
It's a shame
when you don't know who you are
or where you belong, you know?
Want some?
I'll just take one.
Thanks, Tommy.
You're one of the good ones.
Hey! This garden comes
with a free house!
Yeah, that's right!
Mr. McGregor will torment us no more!
-No more!
-No more!
Meet Thomas McGregor.
Or, as he is known
in the store where he works,
Mr. McGregor.
You're seeing him at his happiest.
Preparing his troops for battle.
People who say
you can 't control everything
haven 't met this Mr. McGregor.
72.043 degrees.
The angle at which Apollo 13
was launched.
I know, Carlos, you think I'm crazy.
But the little girl
who wants to be an astronaut
is going to know, and you've
just blown up her dreams.
This is a nightmare.
Youve got to toss and uff,
toss and fluff.
It's the small things.
You mustn't be afraid
to really get in there, gang.
Our toilets should be clean
as a drinking fountain.
Mr. McGregor.
The general manager
has asked to see you.
This is it. My promotion.
They said it could be this week.
How do I look?
Like a man about to drink
toilet water from a straw?
l have some bad news, Thomas.
-Your great-uncle passed away.
| just received word.
I'm very sorry.
I didn't even know I had a great-uncle.
What about the promotion?
-Excuse me?
-The associate general manager.
The post I've been working
towards for the last 10 years.
You're in shock, I understand.
In times of grief...
No, there's no grief.
ljust want to know.
Did I get the promotion or not?
-No. It went to Bannerman.
But he is an imbecile.
I mean, he's not even that.
To be rightfully called an imbecile,
would be aspirational
for Nigel Bannerman.
But he also happens to be
the managing director's nephew.
So you're promoting a
agrantly unqualified half-wit
to a position of immense importance
based purely on nepotism.
This is Great Britain.
It's practically written in our charter.
You think I want
our best man passed over?
Well, then, don't pass me over.
This is not the time to be
thinking about work, Thomas.
Take some time.
Take as much time as you like.
No, I don't want time! I'm sorry.
I don't want... I'm sorry.
I want the promotion, is the thing,
and I deserve the promotion.
Give me the promotion, June,
I won't tell anyone.
Give me the promotion.
-l'm sorry, sir.
-lt's all right.
-Sorry, sir.
-Maybe next time.
What up, McG...
I didn't even want it.
lwas in Ibiza last night.
Heavy lies the crown, yeah?
I'm taking a break.
I'll be in my big ofce.
Come here!
I gave my life to you!
I gave you everything!
Why did you treat me...
I'm sorry.
This might actually be
a blessing in disguise.
Get some perspective. Get a hobby.
Get some dirt underneath
your fingernails.
You sound like every employer,
teacher, family member,
friend, and vague acquaintance
I've ever had.
I'm going to take your name tag
now, Thomas.
No, not...
Welcome to Harrods.
Might I suggest some time
in the country?
It's calming.
One hundred and eighty!
Joust! Joust! Joust! Joust!
Oh, yeah, now it's a party.
-Hors d'oeuvres?
- | 'll just take one.
No, it's hitch kick, then boogaloo.
When am I going to get to choreograph?
When you're the oldest.
I can't wait that long.
Hey, let's go get Mum and Dad.
Where do you want it, Peter?
Anywhere's ne.
I mean, maybe a...
Maybe a little higher?
A lit... No, too much. A little lower.
To the left. No, to the right.
More. Too far. Lower.
To the right. Up.
Lower. Down.
Right. Right.
Lower. Lower. Lower.
Up. Middle. Left.
Right. Lower. Up.
Your right. My left.
Your down. My up.
Left. Right.
He's gone now, guys.
I'm never letting anyone
take it from us again.
Thomas McGregor?
Sign here, please.
From Windermere? Fancy place, that.
I don't know anyone from Windermere.
Well, it's from Unclaimed Property.
Usually means
you've inherited something.
Inherited something, he did.
From that great-uncle
he knew nothing about.
Turns out, intimacy issues
run in the family.
Windermere? Thats in the country.
Well, fancy country.
The houses there go for a kings ransom.
Ransom enough to buy my own toy shop?
I'd imagine so.
And fill it with the finest merchandise?
Should do, yeah.
Ransom enough to have
tempered glass shelving
and seasonal window decorations?
That I might have to do
some research on, sir.
Can I get back to you
mail-time tomorrow?
Round trip to Windermere, please.
-Here you go.
-Thank you.
Good evening.
Are you aware of this location?
-The McGregor manor?
-ls that where you're staying?
-lt's just temporary.
I am merely appraising
the manor's condition
before putting it on the market to sell.
But you do want me to take you there?
-Wel | , hop in.
-Thank you.
I think you're really going
to love living there.
Please don't talk to me on the drive.
-Give it to me.
I can fly!
I think I cracked a rib.
How many ribs do we have?
-No way.
Oh, no, but don't...
I can y...
It's nothing against the country.
I just nd it disgusting.
Yes, you've made that quite clear
on the journey, sir.
I would just like the record
to reflect that.
Well, I shall create a record
and make sure that it reects it.
A human.
Oh, dear. Everybody out! Out!
Get out! Humans are coming!
Human! Human!
You know, it's like, who am I?
Who are you? Yeah?
You know, like, we're all connected,
but with what rope?
A human! Humans are coming!
-What should we do?
Everybody hide!
Your quills are stabbing me.
I wasn't designed for hiding.
Who lives like this?
Hit the lights!
Oh, no. Tommy!
Tommy, hide!
No, just because you can't see him,
doesn't mean he can't
see you. Understand?
Now hide!
What? No, Tommy.
Now you're just posing as a candelabra.
Now you're just a tablecloth.
Now you're just a...
What are you?
I'm a lazy Susan.
Tommy! Tommy!
Get... Get out!
Get out!
Every single one of you!
Out, you vermin!
Stay out of my house!
He had the key.
He must be a McGregor.
Felix, blink.
Blink, blink, blink, blink.
Come on, big guy. Blink, blink, blink.
Come on, deer.
The sun came up again?
I can't believe it!
I thought when I closed my eyes
last night,
that that was it!
But we have another day of this!
It wasn't a nightmare.
It's a nightmare.
What is that music?
I don't know.
But it sounds very dramatic
and life-changing.
Hello, sweeties.
You checking on the new neighbor?
Don't worry. He can't be any worse
than the old crab bucket, rest his soul.
Never know, maybe he'll be
a nice, normal man.
He looks nice.
Looks very normal.
That's not very normal, is it?
That's normal.
Anyway, it's gonna be exciting.
We'll have somebody new around here.
They're not all bad, I promise.
I'll explain it to him.
We all share our land around here.
I'm gonna give him the benefit
of the doubt.
Oh, no.
It's not over.
We can always go in the back...
Or through the...
Or use the...
Or behind the...
I didn't even know that was a way in.
I see the gates are back up.
I guess you weren't
the prodigal son after all.
That'll do, pig. That'll do.
It was a fun night, though.
I haven't eaten that much
in a long time.
The diet starts now.
-Hey, look.
Hello. Sorry.
I didn't mean to startle you. I'm Bea.
I just live over here.
Hello. I'm Thomas.
I live way over there in London.
That way.
Yes. I'm just here temporarily.
I'm xing up this place to sell,
using the proceeds
to open my own toy store,
preferably near Harrods
so they can witness their own downfall.
Oh, my. Thats a lot
of information right there.
-Good for you
for not being afraid to open up.
-What are they saying?
-I can read lips.
I'm just a little out of my element.
I think you'll find the elements
here are pretty fabulous.
"I think you'll nd
the elephants around here
"are really flatulent."
In my opinion, it's just the
most beautiful place on Earth.
Well, itjust got a lot more beautiful.
You didn'tjust say that.
And clean, sturdy, functional.
Oh, the gate.
-I thought you were saying
-l was beautiful.
-Did you...
No, no, no. No, I wouldn't say that.
I wouldn't say that.
-I would say that. I'm not...
-No, hey, I'm not fishing.
-lt's ne.
-You are beautiful.
And you're different to the gate.
I can't read lips, but I know her,
and she's telling him
to take down those gates,
and let us into the garden.
Well, enjoy your brief stay.
Just, please,
don't be like the nasty old man
who used to live here.
He was a real twit.
-He was my uncle.
-You didn't let me finish.
He was a real...
Sorry, I can't...
No. There's no saving that one.
He was a real twit.
-No offense.
-None taken.
-I never knew him.
-You seem much more reasonable.
Do I?
Although, I must say, these
gates are incredibly sturdy.
Are you expecting an alien invasion?
I just need to keep the wildlife
out where they belong.
Well, they actually belong everywhere.
It was kind of their place first.
We're the latecomers.
How long does it take to say,
"Leave the gate open,
and let in the rabbits"?
Leave the gate open,
and let in the rabbits.
I certainly will, madam.
And might I say, those rabbits
are incredibly cute.
Especially the one
with the blue coat. He's my favorite.
And oh, here's a present.
Wait. Why is she bringing him a present?
It's for bird-watching.
Thank you.
There's one. It has wings.
Yes, that's a pretty defining feature
of the bird, I think you'll nd.
You spotted your first bird.
Make sure to mark it down later.
Mark it down?
So theres a way of organizing
and documenting the chaos of the sky?
Well, it was nice to meet you, Thomas.
Yes, you, too.
And let's keep this gate open, shall we,
so the wildlife can run free?
-She did it.
We're in. Come on.
Maybe it's not so bad here, after all.
-I don't care.
- | 'm going in.
-Right behind you.
No. Not a chance.
You remember what happened
to Dad, right?
But you go in all the time.
That's my character flaw.
You get your own character flaw.
-Come on, Benjamin.
-Why does he get to go?
Yeah, why do l have to go in?
Because that's his character flaw.
He goes along with everything I say,
no matter how stupid and reckless it is.
No, I don't! You're not the boss of me!
I can't let him go in by himself.
He's being stupid and reckless.
I hope they're going to be okay.
They'll be ne, and if not,
I guess I'll just be
the new head of the family.
Peter, please be okay!
I'm still so out of shape.
How's it working with the putting
the dressing on the side?
Good. But I don't understand why
it's healthier to drink it all at once.
Come on.
What'd I tell ya?
Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
This guy is so much faster
than the old one.
I think we have a problem.
-What is it?
-Everything's upside down.
Where are you?
We never should have come in the garden.
No guts, no glory.
Are you ever scared of anything?
Yeah. Dying alone.
That's why I brought you here.
Do you know what we do
with rats in the city?
We find them, and we exterminate them.
-Follow me.
-I can't see anything.
-Follow my voice.
-I can't hear anything!
Follow your heart?
That way, that way, that way.
Play dead.
This is what happens
when you make a McGregor look foolish
playing carnival games in the shed.
You see this, everyone?
This is what happens!
Why am I talking to wildlife?
lam losing my mind.
I do... They're not going to respond.
Come on, come on!
Okay, okay. Flopsy, take the bag,
go to the window
and you put it over his head.
Mopsy, you take the bag,
go over to the window,
put it over his head.
Cotton-Tail, take the bag...
-Just give him a wet willy.
-Got it.
You okay, big guy?
Close one, huh?
I could've been killed.
And notjust me.
What if he got the girls?
This isnt a joke, Peter.
I know.
I'm sorry.
You're all right though, right?
I got your jacket back.
It's not as symbolic as mine.
You know, not being your dad's and all.
And it's brown, too, which is
a mistake because you're brown.
I mean, brown on brown, who wears that?
It's a bit matchymatchy.
Yeah, it's actually a bit confusing.
Half the time we think you're naked.
| just look for the buttons.
But then one time, it was your nipples.
Anyway, you got it back,
and you're okay.
No thanks to him. Look at him.
Skinny bag of wet.
Now, turn around
and drive us home, Eugene.
Here's good.
New to the area.
Probably taking the next turn.
Just using more fuel. Not a surprise
that he's not environmentally friendly.
Hey, we don't inherit the Earth,
we borrow it from our children.
I read that on a plastic cup.
If you do a U-turn...
It's actually a safe place
for a U-turn here.
I think that's the...
-Where is he taking us?
He's taking us into town.
-So this is London.
Big Ben! Wow!
It's gigantic.
I hope you appreciate this, Flopsy.
I never got to travel
when l was your age.
What? You were my age,
like, three streets ago.
It goes so fast.
This must be Harrods.
Wow. Classy.
What can I do for you?
I have a vermin problem.
Rabbits, Im guessing.
-How do you know that?
-You're the new McGregor.
-Bea's neighbor.
-How do you know that?
-She mentioned you.
-She did?
What did she say?
That you want to sell
your house in a hurry
and use the profits
to open your own toy store,
preferably near Harrods,
so they can witness their own downfall.
That's incredibly specically accurate,
and a little disappointing.
Who do you think these guys are?
They're wearing aprons,
so that could mean only one thing.
-They're hedgehogs.
-They're hedgehogs.
Just make sure she doesn't find out
you're launching them rabbits.
She loves 'em. Like family.
Read their lips, Mopsy.
If I was a learned fellow,
I'd say she anthropomorphizes 'em
in lieu of any genuine
human interaction.
But he's not a learned fellow.
Which is why I think she's just got
a thing for those rabbits.
"Which is why I think she's just got
a thing for most man butts."
What would you suggest?
An electric fence will keep 'em out.
To launch 'em,
you'll need some repower.
Firepower seems like...
I don't want to...
Get down.
That's them! I knew it.
Where are you? I know you're in there.
Come out! I saw you!
Launch them. I want to launch them.
Right. Follow me.
It's okay. I've got 11 more ribs.
You actually have 13 on each side.
Which is technically 26
because they go...
Now you're down to 19.
Again, you push this button.
The signal will travel
through the air to this.
This'll start the spark,
and anything near it will explode.
I do understand the fundamental
concepts of basic things.
It's tricky. A little bit.
Thank you.
Thank you!
Drive safe!
Just match its speed.
Do you know what?
That would never have worked.
Watch it, boxhead!
Leave him alone, babe.
He's just a country bumpkin.
"Country bumpkin"?
I'm not a country bumpkin.
I'm from London,
which is where I'd like to...
-How are you?
-I'm very well. You...
What are you doing here?
Just... Just picking up some,
-lt's lovely to see you.
-Can I offer you a lift?
-Why is she here?
Oh, no. He's stealing her bike.
That's all right. It's more difcult
than I thought it was.
Oh, no. He's stealing her.
Oh, no.
She's going willingly and seems
to be enjoying his company.
Come on, come on.
Come on.
That's a lot of smiling.
More than before, even.
She is showing more teeth.
Must mean she likes him.
Not "aw."
She doesnt like him.
She's just really nice.
She smiles at us all the time.
Not like that.
Come in.
Would you like something to drink?
Yes, please.
Are these your paintings?
That's just a work in progress.
No, no, this is, this is beautiful.
Thank you.
What a majestic mountain range.
It's an old woman in a hat.
Right. Yeah. There's... There's the hat.
-That's her eyes.
-And that's her chin.
-lt's her foot.
That's her foot.
I'm allergic to blackberries.
I'm sorry. My throat closes up.
Allergic to blackberries?
Is that even a thing?
Is that where we've got to?
I mean, everyone's suddenly
allergic to everything.
Stop using it as a crutch!
You know, some people do have
legitimate medical conditions.
Of course, of course.
It's a real struggle
and my heart goes out to them.
It's very tough, very sad.
I don't want to get any letters.
But this guy, come on!
What about these?
That's just something I do for fun,
when I'm not focusing on my real work.
These are beautiful.
You don't have to say that.
I mean, they must be good
if I like them,
given how much I hate rabbits.
I mean, somehow, you managed to make
them look not like the vermin they are.
Vermin? Vermin?
-What does "vermin" mean?
-Like a rodent.
Rodent? Rodent?
What does "rodent" mean?
Like a rat or a mouse.
You think rabbits are vermin?
You're joking, right?
Yes. I'm joking.
'Cause I'm hilarious and whimsical.
Rabbits are actually perfect creatures.
They're generous,
honest, pure.
You should see the way
they talk to each other.
They do this incredible thing
when they're apologizing.
Rabbits apologize?
They put their heads together,
like this.
No. No, no, no, don't apologize to him.
Why is she apologizing to him?
Wow, that's taking a long time.
She's apologizing
the heck out of that guy.
And this was only the beginning.
lt didn 't get any easier for Peter
and the others to stomach.
Or understand.
You'll see.
You'll grow to love them.
But romance is a powerful thing.
It can sneak up on any two people.
Even if one is amazing,
and the other is a McGregor.
And after my parents died,
I was put in a group home.
That must have been awfully
traumatic for you.
Did you deal with it okay? Peel.
Didn't affect me in the slightest. Peel.
Yes, I can see that.
Maybe I have some tendencies.
Yeah, to commit rabbit-Gide.
-ls that a word?
Well, I think we all have
our tendencies.
What are yours?
I guess I don't like people
who aren't who they say they are.
It's more about me.
I keep saying I'm a real painter,
yet I can't seem to
nish anything real.
But she paints us.
We're real.
Aren't we real?
Yep, definitely real.
What do you miss most about the store?
And don't say,
"Having everything in its proper place."
I get it.
You have control issues.
I miss being helpful.
looking for a gift
for the child they love.
I ask a few simple questions,
and know exactly what they need.
I love helping people
get what they want.
You know?
Especially when they don't
even know that they want it.
Those are the best.
Also, neatly arranged displays.
I'm sorry, I can't help it.
Yes! Bananas! I win!
Wait, "taradiddle" isn't a word.
Yes, it is. It means "b,"
pretentious nonsense."
That is exactly the sort of denition
you'd make up for a made-up word.
Mr. McGregor, are you accusing
me of taradiddling?
Oh, no. Damn it.
Come here, come here.
I'll protect you.
Come in. Come in, quick.
-C | osed.
-Pull up a chair.
We're wearing fur.
-Thank you.
-You're drenched. Sit down.
Let me help you dry off.
Thank you very much.
I could stay here forever.
Haven't seen you in the longest time.
Meet my new friend, Thomas.
-Would you like to have a hold?
-Among other things.
Oh, look.
My two boys getting along perfectly.
Nothing could make me happier.
Do you mind if! paint this?
Nothing would make me happier.
You're mine now, rabbit.
Thomas, are your eyes emerald
or sea-foam green?
Sea-foam green with a hint
of battleship gray.
I thought so.
And that's what separates us
from the French.
Yup. Kiwi green.
You're the professional.
No, no, no, it's an old woman
in a hat, you see?
| just assumed she would've
reentered at that exact moment.
You need to stop.
It's not going to end well.
lthink I found it.
The perfect ma...
My painting!
It's ruined.
You know how uncontrollable
wildlife can be. ljust...
-Bad rabbit. Bad rabbit!
-Yes, bad rabbit.
-Bad rabbit!
-Out, get out.
I said, shoo. Shoo!
Get out of here!
I'm so sorry. He just went mad.
Are you all right?
He's gotta go.
No way!
The sun came up again!
If I knew this was gonna keep happening,
certainly wouldn't have
fertilized all those eggs!
Now I have to stick around
till they hatch!
And be present and involved!
And so,
Peter prepared his troops
for full-on battle.
Why you kids walking so slow?
And that is how you sneak up on someone.
Come on, they're ten percent pluck
twenty percent blur
Fifteen percent concentrated
power of fur
Five percent muscle
fty percent brains
A hundred percent reason
To remember the names
No, they dont need
their name known forever
They just want to be rid
of young Mr. McGregor
Theyre fee/in the pressure
Tired of runnin' around
feelin frightened
Despite the fact that Bea somehow thinks
It's not about the salary
It's all about the celery
and maybe some radishes
Maybe some cabbages,
gotta let the animals know
That means when they get
ready, gotta go, go, go
You can do this, Flops.
Take a deep breath, pull it back,
and picture the one face
you'd most like to see get hit.
Got someone.
Stop it.
He's got to go.
He's got to go.
His face was so classic. He was like...
All of the rakes. I mean,
I didn't even think
it would work that well.
It was right on the edge
of believability.
You guys.
How did you even get that
wheelbarrow up there?
It was a perfectly crafted sequence.
Now listen.
We've got him just where we want him.
It's on to the next phase.
That might not be possible.
That's a serious electric fence.
Why is he feeding it peanut butter?
He's trying to bait us into touching it.
What happens if we touch it?
We're about to find out.
No, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle! Stop! No.
I'm four and a half years old.
I need some excitement
before I check out.
-Don't do it!
-No, TiggyWinkle, stop!
Mrs. TiggyWinkle, it's not worth it!
Look away.
Guys, I have an idea.
You remember what Dad used to say to us?
Never go into McGregors garden."
Yeah, but what else did he say to us?
Don't electrify a lady hedgehog.
Maybe we should rethink
some of the other stuff Dad said to us.
Yeah, like, "You can't
put lipstick on a pig."
Oh, no, no, no, no. This is lip balm.
It's cherry flavor, so it
might appear to be lipstick,
but this is lip balm.
Yes, yes, yes.
Okay, he also used to say,
"You can't out-clever a fox,
"so use his cleverness against him."
Come on, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle!
That's enough!
And here we go.
And zap.
And zap.
And zap?
And zap.
Zap. Zap.
Zap, zap, zap, zap, zap, zap, zap!
What is happening?
Wow, another McGregor down.
Looks like you did it again, Peter.
Let me just check.
Yeah, Ifelt brain.
Now, if history is any indication,
that ice cream truck with
the lights'll take him away.
Explosives. Explosives.
Hide. Quick.
Follow me.
You push this, signal goes
through the air, towards this,
and everything in there goes...
Good-bye, rabbits.
Hello? Rabbits?
What are you doing
out in the garden so late?
I'm picking wildowers.
It's for you.
He's come back to life.
With a light on his head.
He's evolving.
What were you doing out in the garden?
Yeah. By the tree.
"Doing" can mean
so many things, can't it?
-I mean, lwas, lwas...
-Would you mind?
-It's just awfully bright.
-l was do... Is it?
Is it distracting you from what
you were asking me just then?
Is it better down?
Up. Up. It's quite bright.
And so we advance to endgame.
You sure you know what you're doing?
What? We're tryin' to get
our garden back.
Is that really what this is all about?
Of course, that's what it's about.
You think I've got some kind
of ulterior motive,
that I'm harboring some kind
of emotional connection to her,
because of losing
my own mother and father
and I think if she goes,
what have I got?
It's only about the garden,
and I don't know what's
happened to my voice. It...
It shouldn't be this high.
It should be lower.
I love her like a mother.
Yes, that was very convincing.
It's only about the garden.
Yes, it is.
I'm stuck. My voice is stuck.
-Cotton-Tai | , can you just...
Thank you. Let's do this.
-Nice to see you.
-Thank you.
I'm not sure I want to be
part of this anymore.
Of course, you do.
Just do what I say.
It will all work out.
"Like always, huh?"
Said the rabbit who almost
got thrown into a river.
Trust me.
I got this.
Cotton-Tail, go.
Ready. Aim. Hold it.
Hold it.
-You fancy a spot of lunch later?
Yes. That... Lunch would be lovely.
I was thinking of making a salad.
Or maybe a soup. What would you prefer?
Let me think. Soup. Soup.
Would you like water,
or sparkling water, or...
Would you just pick one, please?
Look at you, you're doing
your relaxation pose.
-Arms up.
-Yeah. What?
-Arms up.
-Really? Up?
-Yep, up they go.
-You know where to aim.
All right.
-You look really relaxed.
-So relaxed.
Just going to do some painting.
Blackberries. Blackberries!
No, but he's allergic to...
Shoot for the mouth.
I might put some music on.
I hope it's not too loud.
Get in there and create!
I'm out.
-Visualize the face.
Look at my face.
Turn his face into my face.
Now stop looking at my face
and look at his face,
but see my face, and fire!
That should do it.
This guy's like some kind of sorcerer.
That's it.
This is starting to get out of control.
No, no, this is perfect.
Remember your training.
Wait, did we train for this?
How is this perfect?
She should've heard us by now.
I'm hit.
-l'm hit.
Flopsy, I need you to know something.
I'm not the oldest.
-You were always so cute and lovable.
And Cotton-Tail, well, she's...
so Mum and Dad told us I was the oldest,
so I had something.
But, really, youre the oldest,
and I'm nothing.
No! Mopsy, don't go.
It was just a tomato. I'm fine.
Guys, I'm ne!
It's just a tomato!
Hey, you never heard
any of that stuff, got me?
Gotcha! You listen to me.
I am not a bad guy.
You turned me into this.
I am a nice person.
I've chilled out, man.
I'm cool now.
I've evolved, but you,
you're still the same.
Still full of mischief.
And that's why things are not
going to end well for you.
Because you poked at me
and you poked at me,
until all that's left
for me to do is wring your--
What's going on here?
You've got to chew your food!
I saved him.
What happened? Is he okay?
Yeah, I... He...
The poor little guy,
he was choking on some radish.
So ljust... I've checked his pulse,
and everything's gonna be okay.
You're going to be okay!
So off you go. Off you go. There we are.
It's a miracle.
I thought I heard some loud noises.
It was a bit of a ruckus.
I was painting, so I can't
be sure, but did you...
No, I don't think so... I was weeding.
I do make grunting noises
when I weed sometimes.
It's just people have used explosives
before to keep the rabbits out.
But you wouldn't do that.
I wouldn't do something like that.
-No, of course not.
-They're angels.
This is their place as much as ours.
-Yeah, exactly.
-Learned that from you.
ljust thought I heard something.
Is that a two-winged
ying bird up there?
-I must mark it down.
-Up there.
-She believes him.
We'll never get rid of him now.
I don't think so.
Up there. Just in that...
In the faraway tree.
You are using explosives.
You lied to me.
Well, yes, but...
My house.
My paintings.
Their burrow.
This is going to be difcult
for you to hear,
but he did it.
He detonated it.
He's a rabbit.
I know.
But somehow,
he found the detonator,
and he took his paw...
And he did all that to come between us.
He's a rabbit!
All right. Okay. Let's be reasonable.
For a start, you know
they rob from the garden.
Did you know they set traps in my bed?
So when I woke up,
I hurt my little ngers!
And then they used
electricity against me,
which we invented,
but they modied for
their own nefarious purposes!
And they saw the Bananagrams,
they saw the bicycle ride,
they saw the walk in the park.
And where did they get
the jackets? We don't know!
But they've been there all along.
You're a crazy person.
I can't believe I thought I liked you.
You do like me.
And I like you. That's...
Are you okay, sweeties?
I'm sorry.
Come on.
Let's get away from this evil man.
I'm sorry.
Yes, so am I.
Another day? I can't believe it!
This is so exciting!
I know, right?
Can you believe it?
Although, things aren't going
so great now,
so maybe last night should've been it!
This wasn't part of the plan, huh?
Hello, sweetie.
Come in.
I'm so sorry about your home.
It's all my fault. I should never
have invited him into our lives.
He's such an idiot,
and going after you like that
when you've done
absolutely nothing to goad him.
You're just going about your business,
a complete innocent.
Sad truth is, though,
I actually kind of fell for him.
I could have loved him, even.
I should see about a train ticket.
I messed up, guys.
Really bad.
If this were based on a different
kind of storybook,
Peter's parents would say
something like...
You haven't really been trying
to protect Bea.
You're just scared of losing her.
But sharing love is not losing love.
Love is innite.
You think we loved you any less
after we had the girls?
Be honest with yourself, Peter,
and go with your heart.
You've got a good one.
But it's not based
on that kind of storybook,
so this is what they said.
I thought it was you.
I've been trying to call you.
I'm sorry, there's
no reception in Windermere.
How barbaric.
On the contrary,
it's one of its many beauties.
I have some good news.
Bannerman's no longer with us.
-He died.
-Earring infection in both ears.
Said it was the stress
of working here for one day.
Quit, moved to France, of course.
-I'm sorry, is he dead?
I thought maybe "moving
to France" was a euphemism.
The job's yours if you want it,
pending a psychological evaluation,
but you seem much better.
Where would I find men's scarves?
-Lower ground.
-Lower ground.
Just take the escalator down.
Right, right, left.
With your hip-to-waist ratio,
I'd suggest a green check.
You work here?
Do you?
Do you?
I'm thinking.
-Do you?
- | ...
I'm gonna go make this right.
I've wrecked our home.
I've wrecked Bea's home.
I'm a real home-wrecker.
Think I'm using
that expression properly.
I got us into this,
and I let you all down.
I'm really sorry.
I prepared a speech.
"I got us into this,
"and I let you all down.
"I'm really sorry."
I guess that was the whole thing.
Kind of crushed it the rst time.
I shouldve listened to you, Benjamin.
Notjust about this, about everything.
You're so much wiser than me.
It wasn't about the garden.
I don't know where I'd be without you.
In a pie, probably.
And I should've been
a better big brother.
Truth is,
I'm a little lost without Mum and Dad.
I miss them so much.
-So do we.
Me, too.
So, are we good?
This was pretty bad,
even for you.
I'm scared, Peter.
Don't be. I'm gonna fix this.
-What should we do?
-Just make sure
she doesn't leave until I get back.
Should we break both ankles orjust one?
I'm sorry, that was weird.
Just stall her. I won't let you down.
-I promise.
-You can count on us.
Also, I didn't kill old McGregor.
He died of a heart attack.
-We know.
-The whole time.
-We thought you needed a victory.
-Okay, then.
with a half thought-out plan,
this is what a hero looks like.
Or a lunatic.
The line between the two is very blurry.
Okay, listen up.
Here's what we're going to do.
Wait, why do you get to be in charge?
Because I'm the oldest.
By 16 seconds.
Mopsy. Sweet, sweet Mopsy.
Wait, you both know
that I'm the oldest, right?
Here we go, just gotta... Sorry.
Sorry. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry.
Sorry. Sorry. Oh, no, it's leaving.
Wait for me!
You're coming with me?
Yes, it's my character aw.
But there's no other character
I'd rather have a aw for than you...
I'm so glad you came.
I feel terrible that I hurt you.
I prepared a speech.
"I feel terrible that--"
No! Benjamin, I'm sorry!
Run! Run, jump! You can do it!
You can... Yes!
Peter, youre a terrible apologizer.
Excuse me, town mouse,
do you know how to get to Harrods?
Are you boys from the country?
How can you tell?
Brown on brown.
It's a bit matchymatchy.
Come with me, I'll give you
the grand tour.
Plenty to see along the way.
Tower Bridge.
Buckingham Palace.
Guards wearing beavers.
Big Ben.
Much larger than I thought.
View of the skyline.
It's just stunning, but, Johnny,
we're on a time-sensitive mission,
and it seems like
you're drawing it out a bit
because of pride for your hometown.
London's one of the most culturally
significant cities in the world.
What kind of host would I be
if I didn't share it with you?
You're right, if were actually
here, we should see everything.
Thanks, Johnny, we owe you one.
My pleasure. Always happy
to help out a fellow rodent.
It's a shame.
But don't worry, I'll get you
to the train on time.
Who would do such a thing?
I have many enemies.
Okay, he's got to be here.
Where is he? Where is he? Where is he?
A talking bunny doll?
I am a rabbit.
I like carrots.
This isn't happening.
He's just an illusion.
Deep breaths. Deep breaths.
Mr. McGregor.
Remember me from before?
No, no, no, no! ljust want to talk.
I just want to talk.
Rabbits don't talk!
I knew you could talk!
Wait, are you talking
or am I just hallucinating?
Call Security. He's gone crackers again.
You ruined my life!
You got to come back with us.
Back to Bea. She's about to leave.
She's gonna give up painting
and go home.
She wants nothing to do with me.
That's because she thinks
this is all your fault.
But we both know that I had
a little tiny something to do with it.
-Okay, a lot.
I'm not good at owning up
to my mistakes.
I'm working on it.
- | just hope it's not too late.
I let her down.
It's over.
It's not.
ljust wanted you gone.
I didn't think of anyone but myself.
I'm sorry I electrocuted you.
I'm sorry I put traps on your head.
I'm sorry I rubbed my butt
on your hairbrush.
Wait. Wait. What?
Nothing. Stay focused.
Please come back. Not for me.
-For Bea.
-How do I know this isn't a trick?
You don't.
You just have to trust me.
Trust us.
So you really are talking?
No. Like you said,
you chilled out, man. You're cool now.
And you're listening to your heart.
That's what you're hearing.
McGregor! Unlock this door!
Now listen to your heart.
It's telling you to turn left,
run six paces to that window,
break it open,
and let's get the heck out of here!
McGregor! Open up!
And so, the two former enemies
and one of their cousins
set out across the country,
a ticking clock their common adversary.
It was dangerous, gutsy, convoluted,
and, in a story like this,
pretty much a journey
guaranteed to succeed.
So lets just hit the highlights.
Everybody, hang on!
They're not even on.
Come on! This is ridiculous.
Okay. Come on. Get out of here. Go.
I'm fine! I'm fine!
What are you doing?
You once said
that everyone has a place in this world.
Well, this is your place,
and you shouldn't have to leave
because of something I did.
Were they with you?
Yes. They came to London.
-"They came to London"?
To talk me into coming back.
Well, they probably didn't talk.
It was probably all in my head.
Well... No. But that's not the point.
You shouldn't have to leave.
I'm sorry for everything that I did.
And I love you, Bea.
You tried to kill them.
You blew up their home.
You blew up my home.
'Cause I got caught up
in everything, you know?
I got caught up in ourfight.
"Our ght?
You're still going on about this.
Come on, Betty, let's go.
It was my fault.
I take full responsibility.
My hero.
Finally admitting
that he blew up the burrow.
Not, as you previously claimed,
the button on the detonator
being pushed by a rabbit!
Hello, sweetie.
Are you okay?
You were a part of this?
I told you!
I did tell you.
I can't believe this.
It's a lot to process.
-It really is.
Please forgive us.
You mind moving all this out the way?
I mean, this is our house and all.
Perfect country gem.
My stupid sister's
going to be so jealous.
I'm sorry.
The manor's no longerfor sale.
Yeah, 'cause it's already
been sold. We bought it.
-Sorry, who are you?
-I'm the man who sold it.
And also the man
who is canceling the sale.
No. Sales final.
You sold it already?
-Yes, but I...
-You and your husband
-need to move off now.
-I'm not her husband.
I just-- We're-- Although...
-Get up.
Come on.
There's only one way out of this.
-You with me?
-Of course.
-Love you guys.
Shall we? It's so cute.
It's like a 3D version of
a storybook, really.
What is that?
A gross little goblin or something.
Clear off!
We'll get pest control.
No. No, no.
Absolutely not.
-Nah, you can have it.
-We'll keep the deposit.
-Bye! Lovely couple.
So down-to-earth.
What a mess you made.
Well done.
Did you just wink at him?
I didn't know you could do that.
There's a lot of things they can do
that you don't know about.
A lot of things.
Lifes tough when
you're scared and small
Still tough when you're big and tall
Or wrong side of McGregor's wall
And suddenly your heart
is like a tennis ball
Up and down, side to side
Served so hard youd think you'd died
No love for you
Help yourselves, sweeties.
Within reason.
No wall could ever split us up
Our love s forever
No hate
I'm so sorry this keeps happening.
Mind if I give it a go?
Life's rough when you feel confused
Still rough when you hear the news
That each day got to pick and choose
The same old sides
the mes and yous
But don 't be sad, you're welcome here
Even certain carnivores are in the clear
I promise you
Wind blows and heaven knows
That sun can turn to rain
There '3 nothing much to fear though
Doors close and we all know
That love can turn to pain
So lets be each others heroes
No gate
No wall could ever split us up
Our love s forever
No hate
No fear could ever keep us down
We 7! stick together
Life's nice on a sunny day
French press and a plate of hay
But some days can't escape the fray
Crazily careening like a bird of prey
This old house is never looked
Even TiggyWinkles needn't need to knock
I promise you
No gate
No wall could ever split us up
Our love s forever
No hate
No fear could ever keep us down
We 7! stick together
Did everyone live happily ever after?
Well, of course.
It's the law in these storybooks.
All you have to do is toss and fluff.
Toss and uff. Very simple.
You give it a go.
How's it going? Yes?
It's good. Going really well.
How do I know all this?
I lived through it.
Grew up a little, lost my lisp,
and found my voice.
Wake up, Rooster!
I'm telling a story here!
Sorry, I've been up since the
crack of dawn with these kids!
And they're the best thing
that's ever happened to me.
That was a great story, Flopsy.
What are you gonna call it?
I'm calling it,
"The Tale of Peter Rabbit."
I love it. But how about
"The Tale of Peter, Flopsy, Mopsy,
"Cotton-Tail, and Benjamin:
A Loving Family?
Or maybe you had it
right the rst time.
Peter Rabbit."
No gate
No wall could ever split us up
Our love s forever
No hate
No fear could ever keep us down
We 7! stick together
