Already a contender for the worst movie of 2006.

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.

It's got a couple of clever ideas. I thought the animation was uninspired and it's kind of forgettable.

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

The technical deficiencies could be overlooked if the story were great, but it's merely average. It has laughs, and smiles, and a couple memorable characters, but it doesn't have enough of any of those things.

As marketing theory, Hoodwinked makes a little sense. Too bad, then, it's so crummy.

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

Hoodwinked! is a collection of everything that's gone wrong with animation lately and nothing that's gone right.

...spoofing classic fairy tales is [an idea] almost as old as [its] animation techniques...

It's as if Hoodwinked was put together in some back alley with a Commodore 64.

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.

Hoodwinked! may sound like a good idea, but if you go to see it, you may leave feeling snookered.

An irksome, postmodernist hodgepodge.

... behind the candy colors and nostalgia-laced animation style is a tired tale that never comes to life.

I would have loved to see what Pixar could have done with the material.

The Shrek-style nudge-nudge jokes aimed at adults are tiresome.

This animated tale about 'what really happened' among the Wolf, Grandma, Red and the Woodsman doesn't excel in any department, from unspectacular computer animation to routine voice talent.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

Why would a distributor suddenly yank an animated family film from its intended wide December opening until mid-January? Could it be that the advance word of mouth wasn't very good-winked?

It takes place in a fantasy world whose cheaply rendered surfaces resemble Teletubbieland reupholstered with Naugahyde.
