Scooby-Doo

Critics Consensus

Though Lillard is uncannily spot-on as Shaggy, Scooby Doo is a tired live-action update, filled with lame jokes.

  • 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.

    July 20, 2002 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The film's effects just don't do the concept justice.

  • 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.

    June 19, 2002
  • As this movie knows what it is, Scooby-Doo's a relatively painless 85 minutes.

    June 18, 2002
  • Much funnier than it has any right to be, and filled with just enough inside jokes to please longtime fans of the cartoon franchise.

    June 18, 2002 | Rating: 2.5/4

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

Audience Reviews for Scooby-Doo

  • Jul 09, 2014
    This live-action Scooby-Doo film is an atrocity beyond imagination. Hanna-Barbera should be ashamed for allowing this garbage to be made. That said, the casting actually isn't that bad (Freddie Prinze Jr. as Fred, Sarah Michelle Gellar as Daphne, Matthew Lillard as Shaggy, etc.), however the performances are piss-poor. But then again, the dialog is terrible. In fact, all of the writing is terrible and betrays everything that the Scooby-Doo cartoon was. Yet, it's the abysmal special effects that damn this film more than anything else. The CGI monsters, and Scooby-Doo himself, stick out like a sore thumb and have hardly any depth or texture to them. A textbook case of bad filmmaking, Scooby-Doo is all kinds of wrong.

    It might have a few clever scenes (particularly the haunted house one), but Scooby-Doo is mostly a dull, unfunny, and ugly film that kids will find very gruesome and violent. Overall Rating: 17

    A really, really, really bad movie. It was just painful to watch - I feel bad for the actors that agreed to be in this movie. Luckily, for the most part, they've lived past it!
