Let's get this out right away: the animation in this movie sucks. It looks like animatics for a Pixar movie, or perhaps a video game. (In fact, at the way video games are evolving, most look better than this four-year-old movie.) Fortunately, the look of the movie is not the ONLY thing required for it to work. The story of "Hoodwinked" is mildly entertaining (and definitely owes more than a little to "Shrek", turning a popular fairy tale on its head). And the great voice cast gives a personality to the characters that the animation just can't match. Under the Pixar banner (or even DreamWorks), this could possibly have been a masterpiece. As it is, it's hard to look at, but still kind of fun. Two bones.
