Flint Lockwood now works at The Live Corp Company for his idol Chester V. But he's forced to leave his post when he learns that his most infamous machine is still operational and is churning out menacing food-animal hybrids.
A boat has been destroyed, criminals are dead, and the key to this mystery lies with the only survivor and his twisted, convoluted story beginning with five career crooks in a seemingly random police lineup.
The candy recipes of the goody shops have been stolen by the Goody Bandit, and many animals are out of business. While the police are chasing the criminal, there is a mess at Granny's house involving Little Red Hiding Hood, The Wolf, The Woodsman and Granny, disturbing the peace in the forest. They are all arrested by the impatient Chief Grizzly. Detective Nicky Flipper is in charge of the investigation, and each accused gives his/her own version of the incident. Flipper uses the information to disclose the identity of the evil Goody Bandit. Written by

Some of the text within the film's pop-up book is actually that of Charles Perrault's version of the classic Little Red Riding Hood fairytale. See more »
Even though many differences in the four main characters' retelling of the story exist (object positions, lighting, and even dialogue), they aren't continuity errors, but the movie's actual representation of differences in their stories, just as real-life eyewitness accounts do indeed differ. Example 1: in Red's variant of her second run-in with the Wolf, we only see her spray him with "Wolf-Away" (a parody of many repellents) and then takes off, yet when the Wolf retells the same scene, she not only sprays him but she also beats him up. Example 2: Granny's equipment is slightly different in different scenes where Red saw her in the sky. Example 3: Japeth's whereabouts during the mineshaft chase vary between the stories. See more »
Red Riding Hood, you probably know the story.
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.

At the end of the end credits, there's a draw of Granny, Red and the Wolf above the phrase "Please Consume Goodies Responsibly". See more »
Loved Hoodwinked! Hope there is more like it coming!
A few months ago I was speaking with a friend who runs a drive-in movie theater. He asked me what movies I may want to see when he opens for the season. I remembered seeing ads for "hoodwinked" but never caught it in the theater so I told him I'd like to see it. He remembered the film and played it last weekend.
As it turned out, I could only bring my 9 year old daughter and 2 year old son because my wife had some sort of meeting. I really wasn't looking forward to seeing it with a 2 year old but surprisingly he watched the entire movie! That was a first for him. My 9 year old girl loved it laughing out loud every few minutes. Her favorite characters were the singing goat and the squirrel. I thoroughly enjoyed it too and will buy the DVD on my way home today so I can show the rest of the family (and see it a few more time myself).
Thanks for making such a wholesome and clean movie that is NOT lame in any way at all. It was genuinely clever, original, entertaining and funny, very very funny. I sincerely hope you make movies like this for years to come and that each one is more successful. Thanks!
