As a Scooby fan I may be a bit biased but how you can deny that this is just great entertainment for everyone is beyond my understanding. Of course this isn't high art but it IS very well put together and there are plenty of in-jokes for the wiser viewers. This movie HAS to be mindless, it would lose its kid audience otherwise. But that doesn't mean there's no good humor or plot to it.
Granted, the plot is dumb (the gang go up against all the monsters from the first season, only this time they're real), but there is slight sophistication and the manic set-pieces just bombard us, one after the other. Once again, there's not a moment of boredom, but there are quieter scenes with the Mystery Inc. gang in which character is not completely ignored. The main stars are, as usual, Shaggy and Scooby. Matthew Lillard is dead-on as Shaggy. Give this man an Oscar, seriously!
One moment that requires major suspension of disbelief is not any scene feature sludge monsters or a talking dog but a scene in which Velma utters 'I'm not hot'. NOT HOT!!!???? WHAT??? She's a total babe, more so than Daphne.
And I NEVER care about CGI FX in movies. But here they are so cool, colorful and convincing. Who are you to tell me Scooby Doo ain't real?
Go out and see this right away. Between this and Looney Tunes: Back in Action family movies are balancing out a little bit after the awful crud of Cat in the Hat and Cheaper by the Dozen.
Give us Scooby Doo 3 right now!!!

Contrary it appears to public opinion (if box office receipts are anything to go by) I actually preferred this sequel to the original SCOOBY DOO.

Gone is the ridiculous unmasking of the improbable villain (though this one is pure fantasy too) and we actually seem to have a plot here with actual clues to uncover. Whereas the first one seemed to play like some wacked out amusement park ride, this one plays it all a little straighter without losing its Scooby sense of zany humor.

The movie opens as a museum exhibit is being unveiled covering the history of Mystery Inc. Things get steadily worse however as one of the disguises comes dramatically to life Soon the team are being chased by all manner of monsters as well as a rather vindictive television reporter (played by 1990s sex symbol Alicia Silverstone).

There are some real red herrings in the convoluted plot of this movie, but there is actually a coherant follow the clues structure to this movie that was sadly missing from the team's freshman live-action version.

Yes, this movie is far from high art, but its colorful and fun...

Please give us a SCOOBY DOO 3 as this franchise just seems to get better and better.

Scooby-Doo still looks fake but if you look past that the movie isn't to bad.The movie has the original cast excluding Rowan Atkinson with Freddie Prinze Jr as Fred,Sarah Michelle Gellar as
Daphne,Linda Cardellini as Velma,and Matthew Lillard as Shaggy.
There are also some new characters including a museum curator who has a crush on Velma played by Seth Green.Also a mean news reporter played by Alicia Silverstone.The movie has the gang investigating a villian stealing all the costumes of the ghosts they've caught in the past and turning them into real monsters
and a subplot involving Shaggy and Scooby learning they really have no contribution to the gang and trying to solve the mysteries by themselves.Lillard again seems to be channeling Casey Kasem who did the original voice.The only bad thing about the movie was little kids in the theatre repeating every single thing that was said in the previews and in the film itself.Scooby-Doo fans should be pleased with this one.B- for the movie.Enjoy!!!

Do not let a disappointing experience with the first movie keep you from seeing this one. We were not excpecting a whole lot, but it was the most my kids (age 9 & 11) have laughed at a movie since Finding Nemo. Everything about this movie is a notch or two better then the first. The storyline and acting are improved so that the story doesn't feel as hokie and you can actually get involved with the story. Althougth Hollywood never takes these kind of roles seriously, Matthew Lillard deserves oscar nomination for a very believeable and well played Shaggy. We laughed till we cried.
Great movie.

After only two years, the four monster-busters are back, reflecting the popularity of the series. As I am not a fan of this Hannah Barbera animation, my expectaions were very low. As it turns out, the sequel is not as bad as I thought. Actually, I believe it is better than the first one, despite the unoriginal story and uninspired gags in the film.

The story is, as I said, just OK, probably better than the fist one's. The musuem celebrating the past works of Mystery Inc. is destroyed by Evil Masked Figure, who turns the exhibition into a real mess. This event results in the disgrance of Mystery Inc. and the four members begin to search for the clues that lead to such popular villains as Cap. Cutler's Ghost, who once decorated the TV episodes in the past.

Now, the good things about 'Scooby-Doo 2' are these:

A) The four members do not work alone (except detective-wannabe Shaggy and Scooby), as they did in the first one. The original's idea of them fighting each other was just awful.

B) Matthew Lillard is still hilarious as Shaggy (and you know that).

C) Linda Cadellini is qually impressive as Velma, even in red leather jackets.

D) There is no Rowan Atkinson.

And bad things are:

A) The gags became more gross -- mainly gases, which is a good proof of the lack of original ideas.

B) Guest stars -- Seth Green, Peter Boyle, Tim Blake Nelson, and Alicia Siverstone (as TV reporter) -- are not particularly attractive.

C) Scooby in an Afro wig. That was ... unique.

Well, that's about it. There is nothing you can call inspired in the film, but the film itself was mildly amusing. Still the CGI-created Scooby is seamlessly done, reminding us of another comic hero Garfield. And like that Garfield movie, 'SD2' is just a passble one.
