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).

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Someone give these folks a real budget so they can make a movie that looks as good as it sounds."
‑ Tasha Robinson, AV Club
"A warped, but mildly amusing twist on the childhood favourite."
‑ Tony Wong, Toronto Star
"Somnambulistic from start to finish, it's a film whose title clearly refers to its paying-customer audience."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"It's more than a little contrived, but Warburton's Wolf has a worldly, hard-bitten charm."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"In its simplicity, this film is to Pixar what the old hand-drawn Charlie Brown cartoons were to Disney."
‑ Peter T. Chattaway, Christianity Today
"A breezy, passably funny spin on a children's classic, mixing slapstick and farce with character humour and delighting in demolishing stereotypes."
‑ Anna Smith, Time Out
"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."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"Despite its occasionally unfinished feel, Hoodwinked will probably keep everyone (adults and kids) entertained for its very brief running time."
‑ Brian Tallerico, UGO
"The idea is so great that it's a crying shame that the end product is such a sheep in wolf's clothing."
‑ Olly Richards, Empire Magazine
"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."
‑ Neil Smith, BBC.com
"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."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Offers a few laughs but overall is pretty tired."
‑ Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle
"Simply not worth the effort or expense of a family night out at the movies."
‑ Ethan Alter, Film Journal International
"Co-writer / director Cory Edwards has a lot of fun blending the detective genre with the familiar fairy tale world and the witty script throws up several hilarious one-liners, many of which will sail over the heads of a young audience."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"This revisionist, jokey interpretation of the bedtime story arrives in the considerable wake of Shrek and is found wanting."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
