The Hoodwinked movies may not have made a huge splash at the box office, but they’re actually very funny films the whole family can enjoy, and they feature some pretty big names in the voice roles: Glenn Close, Martin Short, Anne Hathaway and Hayden Panettiere, for example.
Hoodwinked! (PG, 4/5 stars, currently priced at $2.99 to rent in SD / $3.99 in HD, $6.99 to own in SD / $7.99 in HD)
Everyone knows the story of Little Red Riding Hood . . . or so they think. That’s all about to change because no one has ever seen their favorite fairy tale quite like this — turned upside-down, inside-out and reinvented as a computer-animated caper comedy that at last reveals the shocking true-crime investigation behind the legend.
At last, the full story can be revealed of how Red (ANNE HATHAWAY), Granny (GLENN CLOSE), The Woodsman (JIM BELUSHI) and the Wolf (PATRICK WARBURTON) all came together as criminal suspects in a case that almost HOODWINKED the law.
With inventive story telling, spunk and wit, filmmakers Cory & Todd and Tony Leech bring to the screen a story for the young, the young at heart and everyone in between.
This side-splitting sequel to Hoodwinked follows Little Red (Hayden Panettiere) and her gang as they investigate the disappearance of Hansel (Bill Hader) and Gretel (Amy Poehler).
One Amazon reviewer says:
“…the storyline was sweet and engaging (just as much as the first if not more as this time around there were a couple really wonderful life lessons mixed in with the humor) Myself, husband, and our 10 yr old son spent the whole movie laughing (as we did with the first) and we loved it.”
