The good... the bad... the Twitchy. From the team that brought you HOODWINKED, the comedic portrayal of the fairy tale Red Riding Hood, comes the all-new animated family comedy HOODWINKED TOO! HOOD VS. EVIL in 3D. The sequel 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 Nicky Flippers (David Ogden Stiers), who returns as 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 Red for the search-and-rescue mission. Of course, what is a sequel without guest stars from the original? Thankfully, Granny (Glenn Close) and the rest of the HOODWINKED gang—including the ever-clueless Wolf (Patrick Warburton) and his over-caffeinated little partner, Twitchy (Cory Edwards), join Red to solve the forest’s latest caper. Fracturing fairy tales and pop culture with good-natured glee, HOODWINKED TOO! HOOD vs. EVIL in 3D takes viewers on a rollicking rollercoaster ride combining edge-of-the-seat adventure with classic, zany cartoon antics.
HOODWINKED TOO! HOOD VS. EVIL in 3D features the voices of Hayden Panettiere, Glenn Close, Joan Cusack, Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, David Alan Grier, Andy Dick, Brad Garrett, Martin Short, Patrick Warburton, Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong. It is directed by Mike Disa and written by Cory Edwards, Tony Leech, Todd Edwards and Mike Disa. The producers are Maurice Kanbar and Joan Collins Carey.
Emma and I were invited to an advanced screening of Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs Evil last weekend and boy am I glad we were! It's funny because I was thinking I wanted to take Emma to see a movie that weekend and then the invitation came and perfecto! Now, I haven't seen the first Hoodwinked but really, it didn't ruin the ability to enjoy Hoodwinked Too!
We LOVED it! We both laughed alot. I thought the animation was amazing and I really enjoyed the story line from beginning to end. Emma decided Red Riding Hood was her favorite. She likes a strong girl (like herself!) and I really liked Twitchy, maybe it's because I am somewhat of a spaz myself. I really thought that the Sisters of the Hood (Ha! Think "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon"/"Kung Fu" in a bakery). The giant on the bridge= awesome. However, the pigs. It was all about the pigs. How could it not be with Cheech and Chong voicing the pigs! Hilarious! Honestly, this really is a movie for all ages and each age group can really appreciate the humor!
Overall, we enjoyed it. The 3D was ok, but honestly, it wasn't necessary but it was fun! I say watch it if you can!
disclaimer: I was invited to an advanced screening, it was provided at no charge to me. My thoughts, however, are mine and mine alone and would be the same whether I paid admission or not. Just sayin'...
