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.

The acting is stiff, the story lacks all trace of wit, the sets look like they were borrowed from Gilligan's Island -- and the CGI Scooby might well be the worst special-effects creation of the year.

As this movie knows what it is, Scooby-Doo's a relatively painless 85 minutes.

Much funnier than it has any right to be, and filled with just enough inside jokes to please longtime fans of the cartoon franchise.

The movie drags, and the occasional bursts of mirth and self-referential humor can't save it from bogging down.

Although Scooby-Doo falls far short of becoming the Blazing Saddles of Generations X, Y and Z, it is hard to resist in its moronic charms.

Not that the TV show was so riveting, but most of the half-hour plots were more compelling than this lackluster warmover.

Do you really want to spend money watching what is essentially marginality, or would those dollars be better used to see a better film or even buy a good book?

Any thinking, reasoning human being with an appreciation for cinema would reject it as the vilest trash. Needless to say, it cracked me up the whole way.

By embracing the original series' tacky elements and inserting just enough self-mockery to avoid smugness, the movie manages to fulfill basic expectations.

The obnoxious special effects, the obligatory outbursts of flatulence and the incessant, so-five-minutes-ago pop music on the soundtrack overwhelm what is left of the scruffy, dopey old Hanna-Barbera charm.

This excruciating adaptation of the innocuous '70s cartoon show makes the film version of Josie and the Pussycats look sophisticated by comparison.

I feel no sympathy with any of the characters, I am unable to judge whether the live action movie is a better idea than the all-cartoon TV approach, I am unable to generate the slightest interest in the plot, and I laughed not a single time.
