If you like animation, fairy tales, or good strong comedy, Hoodwinked! is well worth seeing.
I interviewed writer/director Cory Edwards, and was mightily impressed by his talent and his conviction about making great entertainment for all ages. His Christian faith is clearly the foundation of his desire for excellence, and this is a startling debut, funnier than the Shrek movies and perfectly cast with great voice actors like Patrick Warburton, Andy Dick, and Jim Belushi.
When I saw the film on Saturday, the kids laughed, and their parents did too, even though it never lapsed into what passes for “adult humor.”Watch the half-hour Behind the Scenes Special:
Airing Thursday, January 12 on ABC FAMILY, 11:30am PST, 2:30 pm EST (check local listings to confirm). You’ll see interviews with the entire cast, as well as Cory and his colleagues Todd and Tony. Download the show as a video podcast on ITunes. Just go to the Movie Trailers page on the Music Store.
