A new spin on an old fable. In this film, Red, Granny, The Big Bad Wolf and the Woodman, all face Detective Flippers as he attempts to determine the real events of the Little Red Riding Hood story. Original songs and witty humor fill this fun and adventurous film.
Hoodwinked is a funnier take on the classic fairy tale. It all starts out the same,Red Riding Hood (voiced by Anne Hathaway) is visiting her Granny (voiced by Glenn Close) only to find the wolf (voiced by Patrick Warburton) in her bed and Granny is tied up in the closet when a Woodsman shows up and all hell breaks loose. This is where it gets fun, Red is a butt kicking, street smart, unafraid girl, and the wolf an investigative reporter. Granny can ride a snowboard as well as Shaun White!
Next thing you know, the cottage is surrounded by police tape and Red, Wolf, Granny and the Woodsman are being interrogated by Nicky Flippers (voiced by David Ogden Stiers, M*A*S*H).
I liked the movie and appreciate the character styles and pop culture references. Goddess and I watched it three times in a week, so obviously she liked it too! Not your typical cartoon. Very well done. Witty and very well voiced. My favorite character was the Andy Dick voiced Bunny while my 5 year old love Twitchy.
Personally, I liked it better the 3rd time I watched it. The first two times, I felt there was too much down time and less laughs than I expected.
Good for the whole family and everyone will have a favorite character and enjoy their character's take on what happened.
