Suspects: Little Girl In A Red Hood. A Wolf. A Woodsman. And Grandma. All of them look suspicious and it’s not certain exactly what is going on. But goodies have been disappearing all over the forest and someone has to ferret out the greedy mastermind behind it all. “Hoodwinked” is a fractured fairy tale of the best kind, taking something old and turning it incredibly new again.

It is also another DVD that is being recycled by the lovely people at Disney. The film originally came out in 1999 and we can only assume that this “Little Black Book Edition” was initiated because of the recent release of the sequel, “Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo.” Let me point out that the sequel bombed and that it was directed by Mike Bigelow, who most people in the industry know doesn’t exist. In other words, they made the name up because the movie was so bad the real director didn’t want the credit. But let’s talk about the first film in this growing franchise.

title: The Shaggy Dog: The Wild & Woolly Edition function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Walt Disney Home Entertainment MPAA rating: G starring: Fred MacMurray, Jean Hagen DVD release year: 2006 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Dan Macintosh “The Shaggy Dog” was Disney’s first-ever live-action movie, and it’s a winner, too. It stars the loveable Fred MacMurray, who plays much the same fatherly role he popularized with the TV show “My Three Sons.” This admittedly shaggy dog story is about a teen forced to view the world from “inside” a dog, rather than the more typical tale of a boy “and” his dog.

There are absolutely no special features whatsoever here and the collection is rather an odd grouping, with only “Brewster’s Millions” being a film of much note.

title: Daltry Calhoun function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Miramax MPAA rating: PG-13 Starring: Johnny Knoxville, Juliette Lewis, Elizabeth Banks, Kick Gurry, David Koechner, Sophie Traub Film Release Year: 2005 DVD Release Year: 2006 film rating: Half Stars sound/picture rating: Two Stars reviewed by: Paul Lingas “Daltry Calhoun” is a quirky, relentlessly boring film that came out in November of last year, though no one seemed to notice. The film follows ne’er-do-well Southerner Daltry Calhoun (Johnny Knoxville) who is run off by his girlfriend’s mother in rural Tennessee and swears to make amends for his boorish ways. After 14 years, Daltry has become the proud owner of a turf and sod business that specializes in supplying grass to golf courses. Though beloved in his adopted Ducktown, U.S.A., Daltry runs into trouble when his former girlfriend Mae (Elizabeth Banks) returns with their 14-year-old daughter June (Sophie Traub).
