    let's see

    two blandly made, horribly directed, formulaic CGI animated films

    I'm gonna go with Rio, because it has a main character that doesn't look like roadkill

    Rio because it even has an Angry Birds game based on it. "Like" this for the mention of Angry Birds.

    Both movies seem idiotic:
    Hop is about a bunny that smokes crack
    Rio is about a taco eating Toucan

    Hop.
    They were both boring, and bland... but at least hop seems to be self aware of that fact that its bland, where as rio tries too hard.

    Yeah, as has been said, they both look boring, but I'd go with Rio, only because of the main character's VA and the fact that it may be more entertaining.

    I enjoyed Rio, but thats mainly because I could see it with my girlfriend. I think company will change your opinion of films.

    Rio: Beautiful animation and landscapes, extremely colorful, great voice cast, simplistic plot that's very accessible, and is somewhat actually worth seeing in 3D.
    HOP: A mind-numbing waste of time built for 8 year olds. Bland, boring, and tries too hard to be funny and flops in that aspect. Jokes are really annoying. Don't waste your time if you're not 10 and below.

    Rio would be 3 or 3.25/4 for me, while HOP is 1.5/4. Here's a couple of scores:

    Rottentomatoes:
    Rio: 72% vs. HOP: 25&

    Metacritic:
    Rio: 63 vs. HOP: 41
