Genius Products’ Hoodwinked scored an upset victory on the DVD sales chart for the week ending May 7, narrowly beating 20th Century Fox’s The Family Stone.

Hoodwinked grossed $51.2 million in theaters, while the Fox romantic comedy generated $60.1 million. Both titles hit DVD last week.

The Family Stone finished second on VideoScan’s First Alert chart, followed closely by Paramount’s Last Holiday, another new release, at No. 3.
