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

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.

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.

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.
