I've always loved the TV series. I get that they wanted to stick to a family-friendly theme, but for long-time fans, that can get a bit tired. The film could've had a darker tone similar to the series. The whole idea of the gang ''splitting up'' was so cliched even in those years, a more original story like how the gang met would've worked better. The actors that were chosen for their respective roles made the cartoon come to life properly, so in other words, they were perfect. Being a car fan, I loved their interpretation of the Mystery Machine, even though it might not be an exact replica of the cartoon version, it is still a pretty badass van, though I keep getting surprised by Pamela Anderson appearing in the film. Scooby stole the show, even though it is his own show. He's funny, adorable and clever. If they decide to produce a sequel to Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, they should make it a darker tone, like the new Power Rangers film is, and bring back the original cast. I loved Simple Plan's cover of the theme-song, I just wish it could be slightly longer, maybe they could've added more verses to the original theme. If they produce a new sequel, with today's special-effects, a darker tone and big budget productions, the film will be a massive hit.

"Scooby-Doo has a predictable plot and some predictable characters but if you're a fan of the franchise then you'll watch this movie for nostalgic reasons and overlook some of the flaws.

I loved all of the scooby doo movies, and think each brought different dimensions to the characters.

A fun and silly little romp into the goofy and ridiculous that is equal parts unbearably absurd and charmingly nostalgic.

I first saw this movie in theaters at the age of six, and I

I love this movie, but it isn't good.

Some or somewhat most of the energy was faithfully captured followed by some actual comics to make this watchable, it's a disgrace to the original's heart when it's at some levels a satirical parody. (B)

I'm not too sure who this film is made for. You'd think it was made for kids due to a property like 'Scooby Doo', but then why all the sexual innuendos? Then maybe this film is for teenagers at that time period who grew up with the cartoon. Then how come all the pandering to kids with the slapstick and gross-out fart jokes and such. Well, whatever this film is, it had me laughing out loud. Yes, I recognize that it is and will become even more dated (although I love this time period for music). Yes, I realize that the CGI is pretty brutal and yes I realize that Velma is annoying, but I was just having lots of fun watching this movie. Shaggy is a funny dude, my celebrity crush is in this movie (Isla Fisher. Always a plus when she's in a movie) and Scooby is so funny and adorable. I should point out that I did not see this film when it came out, I actually saw the sequel and grew up with that film. I should also point out that Shaggy and Scooby are both big stoners. Never saw it as a kid, but when two people act like that and their characters are introduced in a parked van with smoke steaming out of it... Yeah they're high dude, they're high. So in conclusion, I would say this is a good kids film to watch around Halloween because of the ghost aspects

Nostalgia aside, Scooby-Doo is not great but it's easy to have with if you lower your standards.

While it does feature some great performances (Mathew Lillard and Sarah Michelle Gellar are excellent as Shaggy and Daphne), Scooby foo fails to bring life into the tepid plot and respect the immortal series that it's based on

One of those childhood killers. Nothing more, nothing less. Seriously? Did anyone read the f****** script? Such awfulness .

I'm a little more forgiving of this movie; not out of a sense of nostalgia but because it's a literal Russian nesting doll of self-aware silliness.

I do not understand the hate for this movie in the slightest. This was one of my favourite films growing up and even now I can't see any issues with it.

Sorry, This movie was terrible and The Story did not make sense. The only thing that this movie was about was Bad Guys, That is it! At least make Funny Jokes and Different Story's Like Go to Universal or Disney Something...

When this movie came out, I was obsessed. My friend and I watched it every day. Unfortunately, it didn't age well. I can see my kids enjoying it, but my time with this movie has past.

Scooby-Doo is by far not a great film but as a child I actually really enjoyed this movie. It has a somewhat enjoyable feel to it seeing real people act as everybody's favorite mystery gang and I still get the enjoyment watching it today. It is incredibly cheesy, badly acted, and its plot isnt so great. Its characters are OK, the worse being Fred in my opinion. But this Scooby-Doo movie to me isnt exactly terrible. I still had fun watching the gang get the monsters and solve the mystery. Don't have huge expectations watching this film because if you didnt see this movie young you definitely wont like it from ages 13 and up.

I used to like this but over the years I have stopped liking it .

While certainly not the best Scooby-Doo has to offer, this movie offers many laughs and lots of cartoon gags are in the movie, as well as a lot of new ones. I remember watching this as a kid and loving it so much, now I still love it, but I've started to notice that some of the jokes are a bit off and that the story isn't really the best of Scooby-Doo universe. The best thing in the movie is Matthew Lillard. He is so believable as Shaggy and he nailed the role! From the voice to the walk, he's the perfect Shaggy (even since Casey Kasem left Scooby Doo he voiced Shaggy, ever since 2010)! There are many funny jokes, but also some which are cringe-worthy. The CGI for that time was great, but now it's very distracting and you can tell what is CGI and what isn't. If you're looking for a good cartoon adaptation this is one of the best I've seen, though I prefer the 2nd Scooby-Doo movie much more. All in all, a good adaptation of the cartoon that is true to the spirit of it and offers great acting and some good jokes, though the story isn't the strongest. Would recommend for Scooby-Doo fans!
