Movie Info

"Hoodwinked" is an updated re-telling of the classic Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale. The satire begins where the fable last left off, as there's always more to every tale than meets the eye! Furry and feathered cops from the animal world, Chief Grizzly and Detective Bill Stork, investigate a domestic disturbance at Granny's cottage, involving a girl, a wolf and an axe. The charges are many: breaking and entering, disturbing the peace, intent to eat, and wielding an axe without a license. Not

Someone give these folks a real budget so they can make a movie that looks as good as it sounds.

A breezy, passably funny spin on a children's classic, mixing slapstick and farce with character humour and delighting in demolishing stereotypes.

The production contains enough positive elements to make it worth a look, but not until it reaches DVD or TV. As a theatrical offering, it disappoints.

A warped, but mildly amusing twist on the childhood favourite.

The digital animation ranges from competent to clunky, the jokes too often feel tossed-off and random, and the movie too often descends into dullness, only to be yanked back from the abyss by the goat.

Offers a few laughs but overall is pretty tired.

Somnambulistic from start to finish, it's a film whose title clearly refers to its paying-customer audience.

Despite its occasionally unfinished feel, Hoodwinked will probably keep everyone (adults and kids) entertained for its very brief running time.

March 24, 2007 Full Review Source: UGO

Simply not worth the effort or expense of a family night out at the movies.

It's more than a little contrived, but Warburton's Wolf has a worldly, hard-bitten charm.

September 30, 2006 Full Review Source: Guardian

The idea is so great that it's a crying shame that the end product is such a sheep in wolf's clothing.

Co-writer / director Cory Edwards has a lot of fun blending the detective genre with the familiar fairy tale world and the witty script throws up several hilarious one-liners, many of which will sail over the heads of a young audience.

In its simplicity, this film is to Pixar what the old hand-drawn Charlie Brown cartoons were to Disney.

September 25, 2006

Saddled with cheap-looking animation and a far from stellar cast, this Shrek clone is a diverting but hardly memorable addition to a dangerously overworked genre.

August 8, 2006 Full Review Source:

This revisionist, jokey interpretation of the bedtime story arrives in the considerable wake of Shrek and is found wanting.

Makes up for both its simplistic animation and its similarity to Shrek by cramming the script with riotously funny dialog.

Hoodwinked is what many animated movies aspire to be: enjoyably deconstructionist. The kids in my audience seemed surprised and delighted by how it engaged their minds.

The animation isn't even comparable to the original Toy Story, but the clever wit behind the plot and characters is.

A delightfully whimsical, carefree film that is short on action, but long on funny one-liners.

..the computer animation is adequate at best, but that doesn't get in the way of some genuine cleverness.

an irreverent, imaginative and often just plain weird spin on the classic fairy tale

Had something a lot of other lame animated flicks haven't had over the past year and that was spunk, sarcastic humor and a quirky-enough story to keep my aging ass interested most of the way.

A few random laughs can't overwhelm terrible animation in this Shrek rip-off.

Audience Reviews for Hoodwinked

For once it seems the story is better than the animation but to be honest, neither are that good. It seemed original enough but still a bit too close to Shrek in its play on fairy-tales for my liking. The voice talent wasn't much to write home about either but I do love Patrick Warburton.

the actors all did there part in this film, and the result is pretty entertaining, with an entertaining twist on the story of red riding hood, the reason why i enjoy the film is how each of the stories are linked by the telling of each story told by each character
