A young girl entrusted with the task of delivering a special package to her grandmother finds herself faced with a most unpleasant stalker in this retelling of the classic fairy tale starring Daniel Roebuck, Debi Mazar, Sam Stone, and Joey Fatone and served up with a curious contemporary twist. Red is an adolescent girl whose ailing grandmother lives in the deepest reaches of the magic forest. Asked by her mother to deliver a package to the elder family member, Red eagerly agrees without realizing that her assignment isn't as much about getting the package to grandma as it is about carrying on the legacy that has been passed down through generations. In order to achieve the status of the legendary maiden in red, this frightened young girl will have to overcome her ultimate fear by outwitting the malevolent wolf that will do everything in his power to get the tender young morsel on his dinner plate. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
For adults, this movie is boring. It may be okay for kids and I usually like kids movies, but be ready to fall asleep. Even the singing doesn't liven it up. The storyline is cute and gives a lesson for kids, but it is just not that great of a movie for adults. It would probably appeal to young kids, but it maybe a little too scary for them.
This movie is just horrible. It does not have a single thing that is decent. The green screen work was dreadful, the singing was annoying and the acting was horrendous. The Big Bad Wolf was creepy in a dirt old man sort of way and the Hunter was clearly too old to be a love interest for Red Riding Hood. I usually love weird fairy tales but this was just bad. Young children may enjoy it but I wouldn't recommend it. A better version of Red Riding Hood can be found in the TV series Faerie Tale Theatre or even Hoodwinked. Please don't waste our time or money on this movie. It is not worth it.
