Meh....

Imagine watching a movie that is "ok", but then having to watch it four times in a row - you would probably feel Hoodwinked...

Hoodwinked is based on a mocked up version of the story of Little Red Riding Hood, but as told one by one from the perspective of each of the main characters (the Wolf, Red, Grandma, and the axe man). As each tells their story, you get the might have been amusing difference in perspective, but you also get the same core story all over again. You start off with one that is tolerable, but, with the exception of an occassional laugh, is pretty much the same story the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th times until you just can't bear it anymore and wish you could disappear much as Grandma did.

This was a thumbs down for me, and also fails what I like to call "the kid test." If my daughter sees advertisements for the video and says "We saw that" instead of "Daddy I want that!", well, you get the picture....

And the parents (and a teenager) enjoy it too! I've seen it multiple times on video with the kids and continue to enjoy it.

Hoodwinked Review

By Derrick Deane

The animation is crude and it kind of threw me off for a bit. But I stuck with the movie because, A.) it’s only 80 minutes, B.) there’s enough cheeky humor (some of which is groan-inducing) to make it thru the 80 minutes and C.) the big reveal at the end is SO obvious you’d swear an elementary student wrote this script as a summer project. Plus the singing goat was pretty awesome.

Try the game?

This movie was definitely cheesy but enjoyable to watch with little kids. I've been entertaining myself for the past hour by playing a game I found in the App Store called Red's Escape...basically you're Red and you have to avoid her enemies by swinging up a a tower using her cape. That's kind of a bad description...you should just play it if you liked either movie.
