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

The character of "The Wolf" seems to be patterned after Chevy Chase's "Fletch" character. He's an investigative reporter, uses disguises to get information and even his theme music is very much like what you hear in Fletch (1985). See more »
(at around 59 mins) After drinking Granny's coffee, Twitchy becomes supercharged and races down the mountain. But coffee is not a stimulant. Caffeine inhibits the adenosine in the brain, which "tells" the body it is tired. Caffeine essentially tricks the body into thinking it isn't weary. After drinking the coffee, Twitchy might be more alert, but he wouldn't have any extra energy. 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.

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!
