5.0 out of 5 stars My kids LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this movie!, July 13, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Hoodwinked (Widescreen Edition) (DVD)
My kids loved this movie so much I had to write a review about even though 162 people gave their opinion about it before me! I am not sure why I missed this treasure when it was out in the movie theaters, but I did, and we happened to come across it one night at our local Blockbuster. We brought it home and it was love at first sight for my daughter. After 74 showings and 4 rentals later, we decided to buy our own copy.

The story behind Hoodwinked is well chronicled in other reviews. so I will not belabor that point. It is basically a whodunit about Little Red Riding Hood, her ultra hip Grandmother, the investigative reporting wolf, and an out of work actor who moonlights as a truck driver selling Schnitzel-on-a-stick to all the children in the forest! All four characters are implicated in the ruckus that breaks out at Granny's house and each character gets to tell their version of events leading up to the arrival of the police. Needless to say, the stories don't jive, yet each one weaves in and out of the other characters' stories.

Patrick Warburton could not have been a better choice as the wolf. His delivery is fantastic, and he plays homage to one of my favorite movies "Fletch" both in attitude and dress. I know that you always recognize his distinct voice when he does a voiceover for an animated character, but you almost lose that sense of it when you see what a terrific jobs he does embodying the character of the wolf. The other pleasant surprise is the voice-over of Glenn Close as Granny. Despite watching this movie over 150 times and counting, you still don't know it's her. Andy Dick voices the maniacal bunny Boingo, and he too embodies the part. Great casting!

My kid have watched virtually all of the animated films of the last 8 years, as well as the oldies but goodies from years gone by, and this is by far my daughter's favorite movie. She will forego Blue's' Clues, Dora, Sid the Science Kid, and Little Einsteins if she is able to find where Mommy hid the movie and flip it into the DVD player. As with most of the animated features offered today, there is plenty of grown up humor in the movie as well and I enjoy watching the movie as much as my kids do. I never thought Little Red Riding Hood could be so much fun, but it is! You WILL enjoy this movie. And if you don't--feel free to send your copy to my house--chances are I will need it to replace the one in current use after our 1000th viewing!
