Starts well but is not as strong as it could have been
26 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

Little Red is walking over to her Grandma's house through town. A wolf is busy playing pinball in the local pool hall when he spots her. He pulls up in his car and tries to chat her up, when she gives him the cold shoulder he goes to Granny's to wait for her there.

What starts out as a nice idea isn't totally delivered to the screen. The portrayal of the wolf as, well, a wolf is a clever idea that is quite funny – especially with his gangster/pimp clothing, car and lifestyle! It does make the relationship with Red a little uneasy – she is clearly a child and he is a fully grown adult trying to chat her up! Maybe that's a bit of modern perspective speaking but it did bother me a little.

After the initial start the film doesn't really go anywhere – part of the fault is the characters. The wolf is quite funny but none of the rest really work. Red is amusing the first time, but her hamming gets annoying after a while, Grandma is OK but a bit when she gets a call everything slows down. The `hero' of the piece is a guy who walks round whistling – he is weird and funny the first time but his running presence without explanation gets a little annoying.

Overall this was a good idea which is amusing but it lacks a certain something and doesn't really work as well as it starts out. Old jokes and some lack lustre moments don't help either.
