Okay, if there has to be a worst film of 2004, and there HAS, then this is a good place to start looking.
March 26, 2004
As little as there is to recommend in Scooby-Doo 2, it must be noted that the human cast has done an uncanny job of inhabiting their two-dimensional characters, especially Lillard.
March 26, 2004
Proving that bigger isn't necessarily better, the second live-action Scooby-Doo movie features more action and computer-generated monsters, but not funnier jokes or a more coherent script.
March 26, 2004
Monstrously silly.
March 26, 2004
The movie's almost good enough to wash the bad taste of the first Scooby-Doo movie from our mouths. Almost.
March 26, 2004
The sequel will likely be a disappointment to everyone except 10-year-old barf joke aficionados and a few stoned adults.
March 26, 2004
Although very young children may enjoy its garish blend of splashy visuals and sophomoric humor, viewers over the age of eight will find this sequel to 2002's Scooby-Doo a crushing bore.
March 26, 2004
As in the first movie, you can look at Monsters Unleashed and not find a single thing to like.
March 26, 2004
Aims directly at young Scooby-philes, playing it straight and corny and evoking nostalgic memories of episodes past.
March 26, 2004
Slightly more digestible than its predecessor.
March 26, 2004
Little more than 91 minutes of cheesy special effects in search of a remotely coherent story.
March 26, 2004
The rapidly aging cast is clearly in it for the cash, with not a single one fully committed to the task.
March 26, 2004
The first film was tedious in the extreme; Monsters Unleashed, though it feels way too long and padded, it shows at least brief flashes of imagination.
March 26, 2004
While Scooby 2 is probably no worse or better than the first installment, the freshness has definitely worn off.
March 26, 2004
When the best you can say about a sequel to a bad movie is that it's a tiny bit better, there are definite problems.
March 26, 2004
What I felt as I watched Scooby-Doo was not the intense dislike I had for the first film, but a kind of benign indifference.
March 26, 2004
Zoinks! It's a rare case of a sequel being better than the original. Maybe by the time they get around to Scooby-Doo 3, they'll get it right.
March 26, 2004
The movie plays every joke down the middle, aiming its dim wit at 5-and-unders, insulting them and whoever was foolish enough to take them on the outing.
March 26, 2004
Amid [the] barrage of soulless special effects, you may glimpse Seth Green, Alicia Silverstone and Tim Blake Nelson making mental notes to fire their agents.
