Animated feature re-imagines the classic Red Riding Hood tale to predictably hilarious results. Everyone who was ever a child knows the tale of Red Riding Hood but this picture starts in the immediate aftermath - detectives called to a disturbance at Granny's house. Riding Hood (Anne Hathaway) has not been so easy to molest, it appears - the matter of her black belt in at least one martial art is uncovered. Her granny (Glenn Close), a pensioner of rather dubious moral character, is complicit at the very least. The wolf (Patrick Warburton) is looking surprisingly put-upon here. Forest creatures gather and gossip about what possible set of circumstances could lead to this mysterious and sinister scene: axes, wolves, complicit purple-haired pensioners, girls in capes - what gives? A convoluted plot unfolds and the charges to be laid are miscellaneous: menacing wielding of forestry tools, unlawful entry with intent to snack and breach of the peace. A possible link to the case of the Goodie Bandit - the habitual thief of tasty treat recipes - draws forest detectives, led by chief Grizzly (Xzibit), deeper into the intrigue.
