This movie is somewhere between a live-action cartoon that's much too scary for most kids and a Saturday Night Live sketch that goes on too long for most teens. That's what you get when you try to reach both younger and older audiences.Click here to read the full review
Young children will be more forgiving than their parents about the unrealistic computer-generated Scooby, corny monsters and silly plot. While the cartoon show usually revealed the monsters and ghosts to be human tricks, SCOOBY-DOO’s non-stop, cartoonish action goes way beyond the TV show’s haunted buildings and mildly scary situations. The dark, sinister Spooky Island creates an image of supernatural forces much too frightening for very young children. Characters are possessed by demons, and protoplasm images of disembodied heads emerge from a whirlpool. Teenage girls in form-fitting outfits that emphasize their cleavage, a lengthy segment of Shaggy and Scooby using flatulence to entertain, subtle references to marijuana smoking and guests transformed by drugs into a zombie-like state make SCOOBY-DOO a summer nightmare for parents hoping for wholesome entertainment.Click here to read the full review
While mildly spooky, the classic cartoons of the early ’70s always ended with the unmasking of a bad guy in a costume. No real monsters. No paranormal weirdness. That changed as the franchise expanded to include shows such as 1985’s The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, and it’s a big problem in this live-action feature, which has the violent, occult feel of a Ghostbusters movie. Morally and artistically, it’s a chaotic mess (the lone exception is Lillard, who turns in a very good interpretation of Shaggy). Scooby-Doo seems to have been made by people familiar with the cartoon, but with little affection for it—or for the trusting families of younger children sure to be blindsided by its scary action and joyless satire.Click here to read the full review
t's not like we haven't seen this plot before, but the antics of this party-happy college throng seem aimed at a different audience than the cartoon crowd. Some rude bathroom language and humor (including a drawn out scene of burping and flatulence) is hardly the kind of thing a parent wants reenacted at home. Monsters jumping through windows, snatching bodies and whacking people around may also be a concern.Click here to read the full review
Parents need to know that this movie has more intense, scary special effects than you'll find in the cartoon Scooby-Doo features. The characters are in frequent peril, though no one gets hurt. There is some drug humor (as "Pass the Dutchie" plays on the soundtrack, what appears to be marijuana smoke turns out to be something else) and some vulgar jokes and graphic bathroom humor. The girls wear very skimpy clothes.Click here to read the full review
Kids 7 to early teens, but adults who have a soft spot for the old cartoon will also enjoy Scooby-Doo.Click here to read the full review
This is worth watching if you like the cartoon. It's cheesy but it's meant to be. Some kids might be scared by haunted house scenes or other scenes but overall it's a pretty mild film. The parts were cast well and Shaggy's voice is incredibly accurate.July 27th, 2012 · Details
