Everyone knows the story of Little Red Riding Hood . . . or so they think. That’s all about to change because no one has ever seen their favorite fairy tale quite like this -- turned upside-down, inside-out and reinvented as a computer-animated caper comedy that at last reveals the shocking true-crime investigation behind the legend. At last, the full story can be revealed of how Red (ANNE HATHAWAY), Granny (GLENN CLOSE), The Woodsman (JIM BELUSHI) and the Wolf (PATRICK WARBURTON) all came together as criminal suspects in a case that almost HOODWINKED the law. With inventive story telling, spunk and wit, filmmakers Cory & Todd and Tony Leech bring to the screen a story for the young, the young at heart and everyone in between.
HOODWINKED begins at the end of the tale and winds its way back . . . It all begins as a feathered and furry assortment of cops and detectives turn up at Granny’s cottage in the woods to answer a domestic disturbance call. It looks at first to be just another open-and-shut case of a woodsman assaulting a wolf impersonating a granny, with an assortment of criminal charges including breaking and entering, intent to eat and wielding an axe without a license.
