New on DVD this week is ‘Hoodwinked Too! Hood VS. Evil‘, the zany sequel to the hit animated film ‘Hoodwinked‘. The cast of voices in this sequel is top notch – Hayden Panettiere replaces Anne Hathaway as the voice of Red, but Glenn Close reprises her role as Granny Puckett, and Patrick Warburton (Rules of Engagement) is back as the clueless-as-ever Big Bad Wolf.
The good… the bad… the Twitchy. HOODWINKED TOO! HOOD VS. EVIL finds our heroine, Red (Hayden Panettiere), training with a mysterious covert group called the Sisters of the Hood. But Red is forced to cut her training short when she gets an urgent call from NickyFlippers (David Ogden Stiers), the head of the super secret Happily Ever After Agency, aka the HEA. A wicked witch (Joan Cusack) has abducted two innocent children, Hansel (Bill Hader) and Gretel (Amy Poehler), and Nicky needs the whole Hoodwinked gang – Red, Granny (Glenn Close), the ever-clueless Wolf (Patrick Warburton) and his over-caffeinated little partner, Twitchy (Cory Edwards) – for the search and rescue mission.
There is plenty of action and the movie is FAST paced, so you won’t find your attention wandering and it features some creative twists that you might not see coming. It also manages to sneak in a lot of that “over their heads” adult humor that films like Shrek are famous for.
The movie, which released yesterday (August 16th), is rated PG and is available on:
- 3D BLU-RAY 4-pack (which includes 3D BLU-RAY, BLU-RAY, DVD, and a digital copy, as well)
- BLU-RAY & DVD combo pack
