Hoodwinked (2005)

As the police investigate The Wolf breaking and entering Granny’s house and trying to eat Red Riding Hood, it turns out that something bigger is going on, something that involves a mysterious bandit stealing all the goodie recipes in the forest.

5/10

There’s just enough entertainment to pass the time in this CG animated Rashomon-inspired fairy tale. Patrick Warburton’s Wolf is fun (just like he was in The Emperor’s New Groove), the songs are fine but everything else is ordinary and the animation is oddly, and one suspects, deliberately, stilted. The design of lead character Red is strangely unappealing and she spends most of the movie looking miserable, comatose and irritated even when she’s singing happy songs.
