I am sorry to give this such a low rating, but, to make up for that, I highly recommend you go buy the original Hoodwinked... you will be happy you did. (Just try to resist the temptation to follow up the watching of that great movie with watching this sequel.)
Note: I am a father of several small kids. I hated Hoodwinked Too (as you can tell); but my kids liked it... so I give it two stars as the average of my 0 star rating and my kids 4 stars. If you are just getting it for the kids, it could be worth it.
Set in the aftermath of the first movie, your favorites (Red, Granny, Wolf, Twitchy) are back and part of a elite special forces unit. Called in to rescue Hansel and Gretel from a wicked witch, the mission goes seriously awry leading to Granny being kidnapped. It's all part of a nefarious plan to get the secret ingredient for a truffle that will instill great power to those that eat it. Desperate to save Granny, Red and the crew head to the big city to do battle with ultimate evil. The plot is pleasantly silly, but the screenplay is not. Everything is staged as a loud action set piece which we're supposed to find hilarious. Look, there's Granny doing flips--ha ha. Look at Red bungee jump--hilarious. I wanted more effort to be given to the characters. Make me care and make me laugh by what they have to say. Or if it's all going to be sight gags, make them genuinely funny.Read more ›
The plot is simple enough. A clandestine agency called (HEA) Happily Ever After helps protect the world of fairy tales and keep happy endings in tact. At the start of the story the agency tries to save Hansel and Gretel who are kidnapped by the evil witch. The plan goes south and Red Riding Hood's grandma gets captured. So Red, Wold, and Twitchy set off to save her.
The movie has a laugh or two every now and then. But ultimately it's just not funny. Most of the jokes fall flat. The animation still looks good even though it was produced on a relatively small budget. And they did retain some good voice talent.
Patrick Warburton is always funny no matter what he's in. And this is no exception. Also Amy Pohler, Cheech Marin, and Martin Short add their talents. But this is still not enough to pull the movie out. It just falls flat. At least for adults anyway. I'd say kids won't see any difference. So if you can find it cheap, probably worth picking up still.
