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

Neither fish nor foul, television show nor movie, "Hoodwinked" is a flavourless confection, that if not exactly a waste of an hour and a half will at least provide for some harmless babysitting.

A riff on the "Little Red Riding Hood" tale, literally reimagining our innocent, skipping little sweet tart as a street-smart, butt-kicking, take-no-prisoners hard-lass from the 'hood.

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.

Not likely to have the undying appeal of a film like Shrek or Toy Story.

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.

Hoodwinked! is a collection of everything that's gone wrong with animation lately and nothing that's gone right.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

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

More often than not, the look reflects a speeded-up trip though the hard drive to keep costs from skyrocketing. In other words, don't expect much detail.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

The real story of Red Riding Hood - wink! wink!

Certainly a nobler attempt in the animated feature genre than the likes of Robots, Shark Tale and Chicken Little.
January 16, 2006
Quirky, bizarre, different, and a hoot!

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

The Edwards show immense creative potential; they just didn't find it all in this particular forest.

It's not bad enough to leave you feeling had, but unlikely to make you plan a return visit, either.

This flick has the best script of any animated film this year.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Hoodwinked, in terms of wit and technological skill, is no Shrek. It's not bad, if you lower your expectations a bit.
| Original Score: 3/4

The fast pacing, talking animals and occasional song might pull in the kids, but the movie's dry humor clearly is aimed at adults.

An enjoyably ironic rethink of a beloved fairy tale.
| Original Score: 3/4

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