HOODWINKED TOO! HOOD VS. EVIL is based on the beloved classic children’s fairy tale Red Riding Hood. This brand-new adventure features an all-star cast including Hayden Panettiere, Glenn Close, Joan Cusack, Amy Poehler, Martin Short, Heidi Klum, Wayne Newton, Cheech Marin, and Tommy Chong!
The good… the bad… the Twitchy. HOODWINKED TOO! HOOD VS. EVIL finds our heroine, Red (Hayden Panettiere), training with a mysterious covert group called the Sisters of the Hood. But Red is forced to cut her training short when she gets an urgent call from NickyFlippers (David Ogden Stiers), the head of the super-secret Happily Ever After Agency, aka the HEA. A wicked witch (Joan Cusack) has abducted two innocent children, Hansel (Bill Hader) and Gretel (Amy Poehler), and Nicky needs the whole Hoodwinked gang – Red, Granny (Glenn Close), the ever-clueless Wolf (Patrick Warburton) and his over-caffeinated little partner, Twitchy (Cory Edwards) – for the search and rescue mission.
Our Take: We did not see this one in the theaters nor did we even see the first Hoodwinked. I think when my boys heard Little Red Riding Hood, they tuned out. But I got them to watch it, they really thought it was funny, especially the 8 and 4-year-old. My oldest got some of the references to other movies. We now have the first one in our Netflix queue! It’s a movie for kids and as long as they sit and watch it then I’m happy.
