“Red Riding Hood is training in the group of Sister Hoods, when she and the Wolf are called to examine the sudden mysterious disappearance of Hansel and Gretel.” – Nusantara Edaran Filem
Verdict: I haven’t seen the original installment (Hoodwinked!) but I have absolutely no interest at all after watching this sequel. Whose brilliant idea was it to spoof a crossover of fairytales and classic films but with kids’ level of humour? It’s impeccably lame and the graphics aren’t great as well. However, I was very impressed with Saturday Night Live’s duo, Bill Hader and Amy Poehler, for their voice-over performance as the German siblings, Hansel and Gretel. If it wasn’t for them, I would’ve walked out of the cinema along with the others halfway through the show.
