QUICK TAKE:
Animated Adventure: Red Riding Hood and Wolf return as bickering mission specialists for the Happily Ever After Agency and are tasked with saving the kidnapped Hansel and Gretel.
PLOT:
Red (voice of HAYDEN PANETTIERE) decides to leave her training at the Sister Hood, a secret academy where specially gifted young women learn to bake and fight, after her Granny (voice of GLENN CLOSE) is kidnapped by the evil Verushka the Witch (voice of JOAN CUSACK). She and Wolf (voice of PATRICK WARBURTON) are now operatives for the Happily Ever After Agency, an organization run by Nicky Flippers (voice of DAVID OGDEN STIERS) that's dedicated to preserving positive outcomes to fairy tale stories.

The two reteam to find Granny, who is being forced by Verushka to disclose the secret ingredient to a special brand of muffin that bestows omnipotence on those who eat it. The witch uses the kidnapped Hansel and Gretel (voices of BILL HADER and AMY POEHLER, respectively) as leverage, threatening to cook them alive if Granny does not comply.

It soon becomes clear, though, that Hansel and Gretel may be in on the nefarious plot. At the same time, Red and Wolf have to learn to work as a team to save Granny and complete their mission. This will require extracting information from the mobbed-up Giant (voice of BRAD GARRETT) and their old nemesis, Boingo the Bunny (voice of MARTIN SHORT).

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Yes. Although the first film was not a major box office success, the sequel is targeted at the under-10 set and takes its inspiration from "Shrek," "Kung Fu Panda," and numerous other animated adventures.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some mild rude humor, language, and action.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
