Hoodwinked Update #2

After the refs looked at the tape again, the decision has been reversed. HOODWINKED is now, officially, #2 for the weekend. The movie’s performance still smashed the industry’s predictions and is being viewed as a huge success. And there is always next weekend...

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Glory Road" narrowly took the No. 1 spot at the holiday box office from preliminary leader "Hoodwinked" when final data were issued Tuesday.
A mere $48,187 separated the two films: Disney's college hoops saga tallied $16.93 million during the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, while the Weinstein Co.'s Little Red Riding Hood cartoon ended up with $16.88 million.

We saw it with friends Saturday night in a packed-out movie theatre. Gotta love the laughter when Japeth appears on screen. (If you don't know who he is, you must see the film!) An even bigger response (actual audience applause) was generated when the cops figure out how to slow down Twitchy's voice.

It's a delight!

Can Hardly wait to see it! Being a Disney stock holder upset at how Eisner handled both Pixar & Weinsteins it pleases me to no end that the proof is in the pudding re: Eisner's poor choice.
Hooray for Weinstein's! Hooray for Hoodwinked!
