Review

Our Score
Little Red Riding Hood gets a low-grade Shrek makeover in this cheap-looking slice of computer-generated animation. Fitfully clever rather than funny, sluggish when it should be sassy, this uses a Rashomon approach to retell the classic tale from four perspectives. Kung fu fighting Red (voiced by a strident Anne Hathaway) remains closest to the original characters, while extreme-sports enthusiast Granny (Glenn Close), undercover reporter Big Bad Wolf (Patrick Warburton) and down-on-his-luck Woodsman (James Belushi) wander off the page. A moustached frog named Nicky Flippers (David Ogden Stiers) is the Poirot of the piece, trying to unravel the anachronistic puzzle. Despite the occasional amusing line and nonstop references to other fairy tales, the sameness of each character's version of events soon becomes tedious, while the bland songs, ranging between hard rock and show tunes, don't help.

Summary

Animated comedy taking an alternative look at the Little Red Riding Hood story. A frog detective investigates a domestic disturbance at Granny's house involving a girl with a talent for martial arts, an axe-wielding woodsman and a wolf. But as the various characters involved tell their story, each presents a completely different version of events. Featuring the voices of Anne Hathaway, Glenn Close and James Belushi.
