Hoodwinked (2005)



Critic Consensus: This fractured fairytale doesn't have the wit or animation quality to compete with the likes of the Shrek franchise.

Movie Info

Forget everything you know about Little Red Riding Hood; the classic fairy tale gets a new look and a new style in this computer-animated comedy for the whole family. Grizzly (voice of Xzibit) and Stork (voice of Anthony Anderson) are a pair of critter cops who have been called the homey bungalow of Granny (voice of Glenn Close) to investigate a disturbance of the peace. It seems there was an altercation involving Granny, her granddaughter Little Red Riding Hood (voice of Anne Hathaway), a Big Bad Wolf (voice of Patrick Warburton), and a Woodsman (voice of Jim Belushi). However, as the detectives interview the participants and get each individual's perspective, they learn that Granny isn't so helpless, Red may have been doing more than just visiting relatives, the Wolf isn't the predator he's been cracked up to be, and the Woodman doesn't have much of an intellectual advantage over the trees he chops down. Hoodwinked also features the voice talents of Andy Dick, David Ogden Stiers, and Chazz Palminteri.more

All Critics (132) | Top Critics (36)

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

AV Club
Top Critic

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

Time Out
Top Critic

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

Lessons of Darkness

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

Full Review… | March 24, 2007

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

Film Journal International

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

Audience Reviews for Hoodwinked

A funny and okay movie. I didn't love it, and the animation sucked, but this movie was funny and a interesting take on the story.

Super Reviewer

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

Okay...seriously? I can do animations better than this...this is like It's a Small World, animatronic creepy. And what a shame, too, because the script isn't half bad.
