DVD Special Features:
Once I received this Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack for review, I remembered that I first saw Hoodwinked when it was released on DVD in 2006. Having been a while since we last saw it, me and the kids sat down to watch it again. I don't have a Blu-ray player (yet) so we watched the DVD. First, I must say I like the option of being able to get more and more movies with the Blu-ray/DVD combo. It gives me the option to watch movies on DVD until I am able to purchase a Blu-ray player.
As for the movie itself, Hoodwinked gives an interesting spin to popular fairytales. It was an enjoyable watch with familiar characters and the storyline was engaging. I would have liked to have had more laughs. I think it could have been played up more with humor. All in all, it is a mentionable family-friendly film.
One person will win a Hoodwinked Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack.
