This is not just a children's movie. In fact, I would say it is geared more to the adults with its wit and humor. Nothing bad about the movie for children, but the kids may not get all the comedy that is thrown at them in this fast paced storyline.
I have seen it multiple times and there are still new things I get with each viewing.
This movie is packed with creativity. I love being surprised by storylines.
DO NOT watch the sequel to this movie. It is awful. But this one is a keeper. Easy to watch again and again.

A new take on an old classic fairy tale with lots of twists and takes from other movies. All the characters are great but Twitchy just might be my favorite. Fun for kids and adults!

This is by far one of the best animated DVDs I've ever seen. The writers were so clever they managed to create one hilarious scene and character after another without stooping to using the mindless crude gags so prevalent in kids movies these days. I wish the makers of this movie would've kept making more like this one. Absolutely LOVE it!!! (Oh, and my kids--ages 7 & 9--loved it, too.

I love this take on the story of Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf is my favorite character. He has some of the best lines. I have watched this movie many times and it never gets old.

SHREK meets the INCREDIBLEs meets FLETCH

"Was the Wolf framed? Is there more to Red-Riding Hood than her keen deductive ability and her hood? "HOODWINKED" asks these questions in a film more family friendly than SHREK. Sure, comparison to the SHREK films in unavoidable when twisting fairy tales. But Hoodwinked has it's own style, although it is a less slick style than Pixar or Dreamworks. Just with more quirky songs and more awkward charm.
HOODWINKED,is a FRACTURED FAIRY TALE in the spirit of Jon Scieszka's The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. The movieopens like a traditional telling of Red-Riding Hood,with "Red" voiced by Anne Hathaway taking goodies to Granny, voiced by Glenn Close, she finds the wolf, a woodsman (Jim Belushi) leaps in with an ax.....then the police arrive. The best Of these retellings are by the Wolf, voiced by Patrick Warburton, and Granny. The Wolf reveals that he is an undercover reporter who not only dresses like Chevy Chase's Fletch, but he shares Fletch's disguise kit and soundtrack. Warburton plays the Wolf perfectly in every scene. Granny's retaling parodies "XXX" in her taste for extreme sports is revealed. Other notable voices and cameos by Andy Dick, David Ogden Stiers and Xzbit.
The film is loaded with great one-liners, pop references and gags that will appeal to all-ages.
Surprisingly funny and refreshingly clever

"not the usual tired fare that unfortunately makes up most children's movies (even disney these days)
this is a super clever rewrite of little red riding hood with all sorts of zany characters and twists on the original. it's funny, fast-paced and amazingly no violence, sex or profanity. Good job!"
Hoodwinked:go see it!

"Hoodwinked was awesome. It was hilarious. And unlike shrek it didn't rely on crude suggestive humor to be funny. It was a good comedy, a good mystery, and a good family/kid movie. So GO SEE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
