Full of manic momentum and nattering, witless word play, the movie has all the charm of a mudslide.

There are some nice 3-D swoops and drops, but the more vertiginous entertainment of the film is in the script, as what we think we know is deliciously turned inside out.

Remember the first "Hoodwinked," five years ago? Remember how it ended with the promise of a sequel? Remember how many times you've wondered when-oh-when-will-it-finally-come? Me neither.

A flat, plodding and largely mirthless affair.

Parents should take their children to "Hoodwinked Too! Hood Vs. Evil," if only because kids are never too young to learn the important and liberating skill of walking out of a movie and demanding a refund.

"Hoodwinked" wasn't a bad movie, but it wasn't a smash hit, either, and the stash of spoofable fairy tales is now as empty as Old Mother Hubbard's cupboard.

By the time a list of "Happy Days" plot lines are recited, it's clear that even as a hipster goof, "Hoodwinked Too!" is as fresh as a day-old Muffin Man.

While it seems there's no getting away from this marketing aesthetic, the resemblance at times to a video game is far, far too acute.

One would hope that Martin Scorsese and Brian De Palma are getting some kind of royalty from all the mediocre comedies and animated movies that keep ripping off their films.

If ever there was a movie that should have gone straight to video - or better yet, never have been made - this is it.

"Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil" is all-sugar rush, its potential to charm adults and their young charges routinely drowned out by a bigger/faster/jokier ethos.

There's nothing especially noteworthy about Hoodwinked Too!

In which the animators ditch structural ambition in favor of straight-up action spoofery that's all freneticism and very little cleverness.

Sure, it's still bottom-drawer animation of the "Igor," "Fly Me to the Moon" and "Alpha & Omega" variety. And yeah, your kids can tell.

Kids have seen much better animation in other films, and it's hard to imagine too many grown-ups ready to smile and nod at yet more smirking takes on famous moments from Scarface and The Silence Of The Lambs.

...infantile humor, unrelenting wisecracks and popcult references, and flat characters who don't engage one's eyes or interest.

"Hoodwinked Too," which runs an eternity-risking 85 minutes, plays like a jaded rehash of other pictures. And none of those other pictures, sadly, is the original "Hoodwinked."

The results are irreverent, fast, funky and funny. And hey, there may be a lesson or two in there for youngsters - especially girls - to pick up on along the way.

Even with SNL's infinitely inventive Bill Hader and Amy Poehler in the H&G vocal roles, the movie can't be saved from its own vices of manic pacing and tediously pro forma pop culture jokes.

Once upon a time, fairy tales were told with beauty, wit, simplicity and charm, a tradition that seems increasingly a thing of the past in Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil.

One feels sympathy for such classic, beloved characters constantly being refashioned for films beneath them. Red Riding Hood needs a better agent.

Yes, it's in 3D and no, it's not remotely as good as "Rio."

Marred by second-rate 3-D and the sort of cornball one-liners that even a fairy godmother couldn't love, it's a tolerance-testing tale that puts the grim in Grimm.

One of the more depressing, desensitizing experiences I've had in a theater, Hoodwinked Too! Hood Vs. Evil feels as computer-generated as its creepy, talking-ceramic-toy style of animation.
