    • My Review:

      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.

      Win It!

      One person will win a Hoodwinked Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack.
