This is a good movie to watch around St. Patrick's day. It is a harmless diversion that didn't win any awards, but what other films warrant a St. Paddy's viewing? Don't have huge expectations and you might enjoy it. Seeing a pre-007 Sean Connery adds to the intrigue, no?
The movie was enjoyable and had some funny moments. Another typical ->insert here, a parent is dead<- story line though. The boys get ripped off in paying 'two for one' in only getting a certain amount of time. Perhaps an opening for a sequel? The Manticore character also should have been developed and utilized more. A tremendous missed opportunity. Although the movie was well done and enjoyable, because the story line is so bittersweet, one does not feel very uplifted at the story's end. The director's commentary was also poorly done and not worth a listen.
Have loved Scooby Doo cartoons, tv movies, and movies since practically the beginning so I can tolerate any degree of mediocrity so long that the subject matter is Scooby Doo. However, this was absolutely the worst Scooby Doo production I've seen. Truly disappointing with a lackluster cast and story line. Will Forte is a tragically terrible Shaggy so please don't ever sign up for that role again. Matthew Lillard took up Casey Kasem's torch beautifully. I'm assuming he was either unavailable or he knew how lousy this production would be so he didn't want any part of it. This was so Rotten, I don't think Shaggy or Scooby would touch it.
Not a great sequel. The songs weren't as strong and the cheesy 80's parody with Kristoff was...cheesy. Still watchable and somewhat enjoyable, but highly overrated. Just because it is a Disney princess movie doesn't mean it is the greatest story ever told. Would it kill Disney to have a happy parents' story? It is all too predictable that someone's parent or parents die. It would have been a nice surprise if the parents were trapped and were freed in the second movie. Clearly their death happened in the first movie, but wouldn't it be a nice suprirse if they were still alive? The story montage by Olaf was the best part of the movie by far. Elsa singing with a country vibrato was clearly the worst.
