Scooby and the gang will have to overcome their personal differences and forget everything they think they know about fake ghouls and phony creatures to crack the case, save themselves and possibly…the world.
Comedy Adventure - This live-action version of the long-running cartoon is every bit
the silly comedy it appears to be, featuring lots of slapstick gags,
goofy wisecracks, and it also has its share of toilet humor.
Children will definitely enjoy more than adults, who may also have a
good time if they aren't overly devoted fans of the original. Teens
may also enjoy due to the youth appeal cast. Note: As in the
cartoon, this is a scary movie for little ones. It also has a
devil/demonic/voodoo theme which some may object to.
PROFANITY: Very rare use of very mild profanity SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Little instances of violence, mostly played for silly laughs. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: None. ACTION: Chases, mildly violent fights. COMEDY: Nonstop silly humor.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Children obviously loved "Scooby Doo." Teens also rated it quite high, but there were quite a few "Good" opinions, which for teens is just a little on the low side. Young adults seemed to enjoy it even more than the teens, possibly due to the fact that they grew up watching Scooby Doo.
Adults gave what would normally be considered decent, but not great opinions. However, for this type of silly cartoon based movie, these are actually some pretty good opinions. It's just unusual for adults to give a movie like this reviews of "Fantastic" and "Excellent." So a review of "Very Good" and "Good" from an adult is actually quite high, again for this type of silly movie.
If you like Scooby Doo the cartoon, you'll certainly enjoy this big screen version.
Cinema Review Opinion: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Sorry, we were not given an advance screening of this movie.
Zoinks! Two years after
a clash of egos forced Mystery Inc. to close its doors, Scooby-Doo and his
clever crime-solving cohorts Fred (FREDDIE PRINZE JR.), Daphne (SARAH MICHELLE
GELLAR), Shaggy (MATTHEW LILLARD) and Velma (LINDA CARDELLINI) are individually
summoned to Spooky Island to investigate a series of paranormal incidents at the
ultra-hip Spring Break hot spot.
Concerned that his
frightfully popular resort might truly be haunted, Spooky Island owner Emile
Mondavarious (ROWAN ATKINSON) tries to reunite those notoriously meddling
detectives to solve the mystery before his supernatural secret scares away the
Scooby and the gang
will have to overcome their personal differences and forget everything they
think they know about fake ghouls and phony creatures to crack the case, save
themselves and possibly…the world.
