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

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.

The idea is so great that it's a crying shame that the end product is such a sheep in wolf's clothing.

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.
July 27, 2006
This revisionist, jokey interpretation of the bedtime story arrives in the considerable wake of Shrek and is found wanting.

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.

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.
January 22, 2006
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.
January 21, 2006
Not likely to have the undying appeal of a film like Shrek or Toy Story.
January 21, 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.

Hoodwinked! is a collection of everything that's gone wrong with animation lately and nothing that's gone right.
January 19, 2006
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.
January 17, 2006
The real story of Red Riding Hood - wink! wink!
January 14, 2006
The Edwards show immense creative potential; they just didn't find it all in this particular forest.
January 14, 2006
It's not bad enough to leave you feeling had, but unlikely to make you plan a return visit, either.
January 13, 2006
A warped, but mildly amusing twist on the childhood favourite.
January 13, 2006
The digital animation ranges from competent to clunky, the jokes too often feel tossed-off and random, and the movie too often descends into dullness, only to be yanked back from the abyss by the goat.
