I was nervous ? I did not want to see this film, not at all. Surprise - it was true to its roots and great fun to boot.
| Original Score: 4/5

Like The Brady Bunch Movie, Scooby Doo takes a television icon and its many conventions and creates a fun film that doesn't let up in poking fun at itself.

Both an excruciatingly lousy movie and a crushing betrayal of its charming source material.

There's no way to sort out the mess in our heads and deconstruct where it all went wrong. This is an hour and a half of daydreaming.

It made us want to run out and get our very own lobotomy, if only so we could forget having watched that godawful movie.

Scooby-Doo knows when to take itself seriously and when to laugh at itself -- even if its audience isn't laughing along at every gag.

Not only eviscerates the spirit of the shows, it stomps on it for good measure.

Se trata de una realización para los fans del simpático perro glotón y medroso; más allá no hay ABSOLUTAMENTE NADA.

The film's effects just don't do the concept justice.

Yep, it's every bit as awful as it looks in the preview.

They've sucked the charm out of Scooby and made him a poster pooch for euthanasia.

I'll save you all some time: Mr. Peevely the janitor did it and would have gotten away with it if it weren't for those meddling kids and their darned dog.

It's the film's very awareness of its own kitsch quotient that allows it to qualify as a likable lark.

When a film is created SOLELY because it's a marketable product, soulless and ugly movies like this are the result. Let your silly childhood nostalgia slumber unmolested.

Sometimes, fond memories should stay in the past: a lesson this film teaches all too well.

the most strained jokes and unfunniest moments are when the movie tries to be hip in a postmodern, self-conscious kind of way

for the most part, reasonably fun, but whenever the more inept human leads grace the screen, you'll no doubt ask yourself "Scooby Doo, where are you?!"

As good as Rob Lowe's was, Matthew Lillard is Shaggy.
