Overview

Forget everything you know about Little Red Riding Hood; the classic fairy tale gets a new look and a new style in this computer-animated comedy for the whole family. Grizzly voice of Xzibit and Stork voice of Anthony Anderson are a pair of critter cops who have been called the homey bungalow of Granny voice of Glenn Close to investigate a disturbance of the peace. It seems there was an altercation involving Granny, her granddaughter Little Red Riding Hood voice of Anne Hathaway, a Big Bad Wolf voice of Patrick Warburton, and a Woodsman voice of Jim Belushi. However, as the detectives interview the participants and get each individual's perspective, they learn that Granny isn't so helpless, Red may have been doing more than just visiting relatives, the Wolf isn't the predator he's been cracked up to be, and the Woodman doesn't have much of an intellectual advantage over the trees he chops down. Hoodwinked also features the voice talents of Andy Dick, David Ogden Stiers, and Chazz Palminteri.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
This animated comedy puts a topical, irreverent spin on the fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood, turning it into a cartoon version of a TV cop show. Little Red, Granny, the Woodsman, and the Big Bad Wolf take turns getting grilled by police who show up at Granny's cottage to answer a domestic disturbance call. What the investigation turns up -- the conflicting accounts, the contradictory evidence, the hidden motives -- is enough to make a CSI investigator look for another line of work. Judged on the quality of its animation, Hoodwinked doesn't rate consideration with the big-budget Pixar or DreamWorks releases, but it sports a witty, playful script and strong vocal performances from Anne Hathaway, Glenn Close, Patrick Warburton, Jim Belushi, Andy Dick, Anthony Anderson, and rapper Xzibit Alvin Nathaniel Joiner. The DVD extras really enhance this release, too: Bonuses include 10 minutes of deleted scenes and a fascinating 13-minute featurette, "How to Make an Animated Film," which includes concept sketches, storyboards, and insightful revelations from producers David Lovegren and Sue Bea Montgomery and co-writer/director Cory Edwards.
All Movie Guide
DIY hits the realm of computer animation with Hoodwinked, a first-tier recasting of Little Red Riding Hood, from a third-tier studio fueled by a plucky resolve to compete with the big boys. Kanbar Animation, the sounds-made-up studio, and Cory and Todd Edwards, the brothers who jointly covered the tasks of directing, writing, writing the songs, and providing additional vocal talent, should have had a decent hit on their hands. But a number of curmudgeonly critics did their best to deep-six it, perhaps due to its less than plum January release date it was once scheduled for Christmas, perhaps due to digital animation that varies in quality from scene to scene, character to character. But in animation's computer age, the script should be the determining factor between a dud and a hit, when the animation meets a minimum standard. The Edwardses have written a truly funny and inventive reexamination of a common fairytale, borrowing the differing-perspectives structure of Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon and giving the story a decidedly feminist bent in the process. Not every bit works -- the long scene of Granny snowboarding down a mountain is tiresome, as is her talking to fellow snowboarders in urban street lingo. But the majority of it is pretty smart, with an accused wolf complaining of racial profiling, a barnyard of animals dressed up as police including three oinking pigs, and a dapperly long-legged frog detective named Nicky Flippers voice of David Ogden Stiers trying to piece it all together like Sher-frog Holmes. The forest is also fondly reminiscent of what Shrek accomplished in its self-contained storybook world. Digital animation couldn't remain the sole domain of Pixar and DreamWorks forever, and Hoodwinked proves that the little guy deserves a seat at the table.

    This is the stupidest movie I've ever seen! It tries to make things funny but they turn out weird and awkward( like the snowboarding granny thing). Whoever likes the movie is either a five year old or is crazy! I haven't seem a dumber movie in my life.

    Very 'Re-watchable"

    Clever writing. This is one movie that kept the interest of the whole family. Animation is not disney quality- but we really didn't miss that because the story is so engaging. It keeps you guessing with surprising twists that show there is always more than one side to the story and that things are not always how they appear. Funny pop-culture references (loved the "chai-tea latte" comment), great voice-acting, fresh concept on an old classic, entertaining for all ages. The biggest plus- absolutely no inappropriate content to worry about. A great 'staple' for our dvd library and paired with the book, it makes a great gift for either boys or girls.
