‘Hoodwinked’ brings back Saturday morning tradition

Toon preems at the Grove

The Saturday morning premiere of the Weinstein Co.’s “Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil” meant early rising for Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong. But they arrived red-carpet ready at the Grove, with their own ideas about what an edible house should be made of for the pic’s Hansel and Gretel — and it’s not gingerbread. “Weed!” the two agreed.

“I just hope they were substance-free when they recorded this children’s film,” joked the pic’s co-writer Cory Edwards.

Also at the premiere were stars Heidi Klum and David Alan Grier. They all loved working in a camera-free environment. As Grier put it, “You don’t have to shave.”

Klum didn’t worry about her four kids not knowing which character she voices. “My character’s name is Heidi, so that’s a clue.”

“Hoodwinked Too!” opens April 29, the same day as the royal wedding. Producer Maurice Kanbar isn’t feeling competitive with Prince William and Kate Middleton. “We hope they live happily ever after, just like our movie,” he said. — Lauren Zima
