Haynie "Hoodwinked" by Hollywood

With the amount of attention we've given our bass player Keith Haynie's knack for new names (people constantly get his name wrong), it was only a matter of time before Hollywood came calling. While watching the recent animated movie "Hoodwinked," we noticed this suspicious quote uttered by the villain to his henchmen:
"Dolph, tie up the brat! Leesa, hold the book! Vincent, get the truck! And Keith -- darn it -- change your name -- please?!!! It's not scary, and I'm embarrassed to say it. 'Boris,' try that. 'Keith!' You know? 'Oh, watch out for KEITH!''"
By the way, if you like CGI-films that can be watched by both kids and adults, we'd highly recommend you rent or purchase "Hoodwinked," which came out on DVD in May this year. Keith Haynie himself saw the film in the theater last December with his family and enjoyed it.
ApologetiX keyboardist Bill "Wild Thing" Hubauer says it's the first movie his four kids have ever watched three straight times.
Lead singer J. Jackson says his whole family enjoyed it and watched it two days in a row, and his two oldest daughters have watched the film so often they know most of the words to the songs.
Focus on the Family's Plugged In magazine had this to say about "Hoodwinked":
Hoodwinked is clean, clever and fast-paced. I'm not sure why it earned a PG rating. The official word from the MPAA is "mild action and thematic elements." I suppose that's fair, but I've seen G-rated entertainment that bothered me more as a parent of young children (Chicken Little anyone?).
And unlike Shrek's shotgun tweaking of all tales fairy, this witty CG feature deconstructs a single fable and does it without resorting to crude language, double entendres or bathroom humor.
