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

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

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.

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.

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 solid effort that proves an entertaining animated film can be made minus a big studio budget.

Its chaotic, rather incoherent action translates into a raw, gleeful energy that's so infectious and loony, kids will flash gap-toothed grins while wondering what the heck is going on.

The writing is clever and once you get past the first song it zips along at a pace only cartoons could keep up with.

Certainly a nobler attempt in the animated feature genre than the likes of Robots, Shark Tale and Chicken Little.

Quirky, bizarre, different, and a hoot!

A cartoon more for adults with a sense of humor, than for children.

Hoodwinked, in terms of wit and technological skill, is no Shrek. It's not bad, if you lower your expectations a bit.
