The candy recipes of the goody shops have been stolen by the Goody Bandit, and many animals are out of business.

Technical Specs


Did You Know?


According to Todd Edwards at Anderson University's Chapel, this is the first fully independently-funded computer-animated feature film.


Factual errors:
In the end credits, the voice actors' names (in 3D block letters) are lit by a spotlight. As the light pans either right or left, the shadows of the letters go the same direction. They should go the opposite direction.

Red Riding Hood, you probably know the story.

Nicky Flippers:
But there's more to every tale than meets the eye. It's just like they always say, you can't judge a book by its cover. If you want to know the truth, you've gotta flip through the pages.

User Review

Stop dogging the animation

Rating: 10/10

I'm annoyed at all the "know-it-alls" on these boards who are judging
this film solely based on what they think they see in the trailer.

One guy went so far as to say that it was shoddy script-writing.

Let me just say this… I spend most of my time helping to make feature
animation look really good… it's my job.

I've been involved with some very slick looking films. However, no
matter how good it looks, if it's not a good story, it's still a crappy

Like the old saying goes: "you can polish a turd, but in the end all
you're gonna have is a shiny turd."

I've seen Hoodwinked. I can say from experience that the animation
isn't the greatest, the deformations aren't the greatest and the
general tech of the film isn't the greatest. There have been many
"prettier" films to hit the silver screen. After all, this movie was
made on a shoe-string budget by CG standards.

Having said that, I fell in love with this movie after five minutes.
The characters are endearing, the humor was fantastic and there's a
level of originality and sophistication in the scriptwriting and
storytelling that have not been seen before in the area of animation,
not to mention a level of "cleanness" that is rare nowadays.

And, I'm pretty sure that I'm not the only one who has this opinion…
after all, Bob and Harvey Weinstein decided to distribute it.

Go see the film… you won't be disappointed.
