Hoodwinked (2005)

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… More

Consensus: This fractured fairytale doesn't have the wit or animation quality to compete with the likes of the Shrek franchise.

Somnambulistic from start to finish, it's a film whose title clearly refers to its paying-customer audience.

A breezy, passably funny spin on a children's classic, mixing slapstick and farce with character humour and delighting in demolishing stereotypes.

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.

Despite its occasionally unfinished feel, Hoodwinked will probably keep everyone (adults and kids) entertained for its very brief running time.

Offers a few laughs but overall is pretty tired.

Simply not worth the effort or expense of a family night out at the movies.

For the first ten minutes I was shocked because of the apparent unreadiness of the animation. Facial expressions, beyond what can be said through the eyes were… More
