The script is fairly mundane, but it does have a few zingers, as when Velma says "Let's get jinky with it!" And although the cast is a mixed bag, they work hard to bring it off. Freddie Prinze is wildly miscast as Fred and Sarah Michelle Gellar is not an ideal Daphne, but they play with tremendous energy; Matthew Lillard and Linda Cardellini, however, are so dead on target with their performances that they create an amazing sense of deja vu. As for Scooby Doo, he is (of course) a computerized animation. And so are most of the monsters the gang encounters on Spooky Island. Although it works reasonably well, it isn't anything to write home about.
I would recommend that parents preview the film before unleashing it upon their kids; some younger children may be unnerved by the monsters. The DVD comes with a number of extras that include some cut scenes--and they offer an interesting contrast with the film, for they are very satirical.Read more ›
As for the DVD I would give that an A. I loved all the extra's on the DVD. From the never seen before footage, behind the scene's documentary, an interactive triva game, Commentary from the cast and filmakers and much much more. I also loved navigating the DVD with the 3D-ish style of a cartoon and with Scooby running back and forth.
All in All the movie would be about a C + - B +
And the DVD Itself: A
The film's greatest strengths lie in its screenplay and in its amazing cast. The screenplay wisely spoofs the "Scooby Doo" cartoon gently, while at the same time paying loving homage to it. This is not a mean parody, but obviously the work of a writer who understood "Scooby" and, as a fan, is better able to crack jokes about everything from the purported drug subtext to the detestable Scrappy Doo. A "Scooby" project that will actually admit what a horrible creature Scrappy is...well, you just have to respect that. No, this movie does not have a deep plot...but, IT'S SCOOBY DOO! IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO! How many "Scooby" cartoons have you seen that have changed your life? Ummm? Did you just say "None"? Now, you get the point!
I will say that the film breaks the "Scooby" rule only in one area. The "surprise" ending where they reveal the identity of the bad guy...is actually a surprise. Which is really quite surprising in and of itself.
Now I have to rave about two particular cast members...Sarah Michelle Gellar and Matthew Lillard, who were so pitch-perfect in their respective renditions of Daphne and Shaggy that you would swear that the cartoon versions were ripped right off the animation cells and brought to life. SMG has proven her comedy chops and brilliant sense of timing in "Cruel Intentions," and on special comedic episodes of "Buffy.Read more ›
