Will Hoodwinked 2 Be As Bad As the First Hoodwinked?

Continuing to prove that there is no God, The Weinstein Co. has announced that they will be distributing a sequel to the animated film Hoodwinked!, failing to realize a lack of demand for low-budget, Shrek rip-offs that are about as entertaining as a sack of potatoes that have been left rotting, petrified, then turned to dust over a million years.

Hoodwinked 2: Hood vs. Evil is the lame title of this sure-to-be lame movie, a clear indication from the beginning that one, especially parents with small children, should avoid this film at all costs and probably restrict your children to only watching late night, adult programming television to lessen the risk of them ever seeing a preview full of bad special effects and pathetic humor and potentially wanting – or even begging! – you to go see it.

I gave the first Hoodwinked! movie a pleasant D+ (read my Hoodwinked movie review) for a variety of reasons, as seen in such comments from my review as “Hoodwinked sucks butt” and “Unfortunately, it pales in comparison [to Shrek] in every possible way”. Let’s not forget these equally Shakespearean quotes: “The graphics in Hoodwinked are terrible” and “The movie isn’t funny.”

Sadly, this is what we get when a studio spends $15 million on a film and they get $50 million back in ticket receipts.

    Oh no, who’s idea was this?

  • I’m pretty sure Satan and Saddam Hussein have teamed up again.

    Despite the poor production value, the script for Hoodwinked! 1 is tighter and superior over Shrek and most Pixar films which rely heavily on wham, bang and dazzle to keep us staring and oogling. Hoodwinked 1 makes me and animators cringe at the visuals — yes, that I will give you — but the script and storyboard are tight as a knot, thanks to not being written by committee, and the film is entertaining — more than I can say for Antz, Shark Tale, Madagascar, and Cars and beyond. Hail to those who have guts, no money, and a good idea — thank you for entertaining us.

    Gnarls is right! i actually enjoyed hoodwinked, you are just paying attention to the graphics which are not really good, but the script rocks and the movie is funny.

    Hoodwinked! is one of my absolutely favorite movies. The less than stellar animation is just a part of its charm. I love the story and the song. Count me as one of the ones who will go and see the sequel in the theater and buy the DVD afterward.

    I rather see Hoodwinked! again than any of the Shrek ones.

    How can you think that Hoodwinked! was bad? It was AWESOME! The goat was funny, and the storyline was great. No offense, but you need to either see the movie again or rethink the whole thing. Shrek isn’t very good at all… Hoodwinked was 10 times better.

  • Thanks for your comments, guys, but Shrek is far superior to Hoodwinked in just about every possible way.
