Scooby-Doo

Synopsis: Two years after a clash of egos forced Mystery Inc. to close, 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. Worried that his theme park 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 college crowds. Can the gang 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. Ruh-roh!

Scooby-Doo 5.5

I was enjoying this at first, even if they messed around with the characters a little too much (one exception being ‘Shaggy, who is PERFECTLY cast!) . But then it turned into some alien invasion thing with human souls being sucked out , …etc. Hardly what I remembered from the original cartoons, quite frankly. And the production is b-movie quality – everything looks like a set! As for their CGI Scooby-Doo? He’s SO bad that they should have made him with traditional animation instead – à la ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’.
