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.

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

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

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

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.

Time Out
September 28, 2006
A breezy, passably funny spin on a children's classic, mixing slapstick and farce with character humour and delighting in demolishing stereotypes.

In its simplicity, this film is to Pixar what the old hand-drawn Charlie Brown cartoons were to Disney.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

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.

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

Shadows on the Wall
May 20, 2006
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.

Entertaining and funny, if a little thin. David doesn't knock out Goliath.

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