Sequels are sometimes good, but most times not. This sequel is terrible. I just bought the original "Hoodwinked" because I loved it and have seen it at least 3 or 4 times. I have recommended it to many people. When part "Too" came out, I saw it in the theater, I was so excited about it. Man, was I blow away by how poor it was. All the ineresting angles and approach of the original was gone... it was just another animated kids movie with straight-forward, predictable plot. I recall chuckling a couple times... that is it.

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.

While the original "Hoodwinked" might not be my favorite movie of skewed fairy tales (that place in my heart belongs to Shrek), it was a clever colliding of movie styles. With four character narratives intersecting and intertwining, the film played as an amusing riff on "Rashomon" and even "Pulp Fiction" for the animated set. It was a bit uneven, but it worked largely by pushing the boundaries with a great concept. Eschewing the charm and most of the laughs of its predecessor, the 3-D sequel "Hoodwinked Too!" arrives in an impressive DVD package. However, the film itself is all concept and no heart. But what's worse--it boasts a terrific cast of comedic vocal talent, but lacks a real sense of humor. I wanted to like this movie, truly I did, but ultimately I just didn't care about the characters.

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.

Not sure why there are so many bad reviews here other then this version is not as musical as the first. There are not really any songs in this sequel (except for the goat and one or two by wayne newton though they are short scenes)...something that was lost since Anne Hathaway didn't play Red this time. Also, they didn't follow the general formula of the first which was to take a fairy tale and disassemble it from 3 perspectives. That being said though, 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. The animation was charming, the storyline and dialog was funny, and over all we had a great time as a family. Twtichy (who stole the show for us first time around) had a ton more lines and was hysterical. All in all, if you are looking for something you can watch with your kids and all enjoy, this is a wonderful movie for just that occasion :)

I was really looking forward to this movie. I've always liked cartoons like Shrek which have a quick amusing story which children love, and enough jokes thrown in for the adults to enjoy. I wasn't impressed though. I never watched the first movie so I can't really compare it to that. I'll just judge the movie on it's own merit.
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.
