Movie Review: Hoodwinked Too!

After the first movie, I really wanted to see the follow up, hoping it would cash in on the awesomeness the first movie had.

Hoodwinked Too!: Hood Vs Evil

It really didn’t. While it was a decent movie and it had its moments of comedy that were good for a laugh, it wasn’t as good as the first.

When it starts, Hood is off training to be an ultra badass. There’s a very funny scene with her on a bridge fighting a troll. If the rest of the movie could have went as well as that scene, it would have been a great movie.

The rest of the team devised of all of the people from the first one in the new Happy Ever-after Agency, or HEA, is trying to help out a stranded Hansel and Gretel from the evil witch.

Agent 1: The Witch is in the window.
Agent 2: Which window?
Agent 1: Affirmative.
Agent 2: What?

Granny gets captured as she tries to make the save and the Witch gets away with all three. Red has to come back to help get her back because the Big Bad Wolf didn’t do such a good job.

With some tension between Red and Wolf, and a pretty decent appearance by the former movie’s evil-doer, Bunny, it’s a decent movie and well worth the watch, like I said though, not as good as the first.

It has all of the big names providing voices for the characters again and even some new ones (cause some of the originals decided to not do this again, like Anne Hathaway as Red). Cheech and Chong make an appearance as two of the three little piggies. They’re hysterical. And so is the singing Goat, who also returns in this one in another funny role.

Aside from all of the good, the movie got to be boring enough that I fell asleep… both times I tried watching it. I can’t tell you how it ends because I simply don’t know.

With that said, I’ll have to give this movie a 5 out of 10 stars. It had some good comedy in it, it had star power and during the first half of the movie it’s all good. But something happens halfway through that puts me out.
