Overview

The long-running cartoon from William Hanna and Joseph Barbera that began life in 1969 as Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? becomes this live-action, tongue-in-cheek comedy-adventure featuring a computer-generated version of the easily frightened, mush-mouthed Great Dane. Freddie Prinze Jr. stars as Fred, the blonde, confident, ascot-sporting leader of Mystery Inc., a ghost-busting service that exposes phony supernatural phenomena as the work of shysters. Working with Fred are: his rich, beautiful girlfriend, Daphne Sarah Michelle Gellar, who has a bad habit of getting kidnapped by villains; Velma Linda Cardellini, the real brains of the group who pines secretly for Fred; cowardly slacker and dog's best friend Shaggy Matthew Lillard; and the snack-gobbling pet pooch Scooby. However, after solving its latest case involving a beleaguered toy company owner Pamela Anderson, the group fractures over Fred's habit of grabbing credit for everyone's hard work, despite the pleas of Shaggy and Scooby. Two years later, they are reunited at Spooky Island, a theme park and teen spring break destination that owner Emile Mondavarious Rowan Atkinson claims is plagued with ghosts. Suspicious as usual of any claims involving the paranormal, the Mystery Inc. clan is soon probing a scheme involving ancient rites, summoned spirits, and brainwashed college students, forcing the group members to resolve their differences and uncover the truth. Directed by Chris Columbus protégé Raja Gosnell, Scooby-Doo features the voice of Scott Innes as the title character.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
One of the biggest summer hits of 2002, Scooby-Doo: The Movie would seem to have hit the sweet spots of both young fans and nostalgic adults who grew up with the cowardly canine's TV adventures. Here they are in the flesh: self-promoting golden boy Fred (Freddie Prinze, Jr.), damsel in distress Daphne (Sarah Michelle Gellar), brainy Velma (Linda Cardellini of the late, lamented Freaks and Geeks), snack-scarfing slacker Shaggy (an uncanny Matthew Lillard), and, of course, Scooby (albeit computer generated). The film's prologue has self-referential fun with those cartoons of yore, as the gang unmask an evildoer in time-honored slapstick fashion. But Fred's arrogant credit grabbing at last gets the best of the gang, and they disband. Two years later, they reluctantly reunite to investigate the mysterious goings-on at Spooky Island, an amusement park run by Emile Mondavarious. It would seem that Mondavarious, portrayed by the brilliant clown Rowan Atkinson, is behind a scheme that's turning party-hearty college kids into zombie-like Stepford youths. Scooby-Doo playfully spoofs its own iconography and mocks the already well known jokes that have arisen from it. At one point, suspicious smoke wafts from the Mystery mobile, while Shaggy enjoys some "primo stuff." Not to worry, he is only barbecuing veggie burgers. From '60s and '70s slapstick to a blockbuster hit, this bumbling Great Dane has come along way.
All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
With its snarky, eye-popping production design and disparate cast of popular young thespians, this live-action take on the Saturday-morning staple seemed like it had half a chance of pleasing Baby Boomers and Generation X. Instead, though, it's a children's flick, suitable only for Generation Z and almost completely lacking in Brady Bunch Movie-style winking. Scooby Doo does contain a few laugh-out-loud moments and lots of in-jokes about marijuana, but the film has been carefully engineered so as not to offend or confuse the kiddies. (Pointed references to Velma's sexual orientation ended up on the cutting room floor, along with lots of other subversive hijinks if the Internet movie spies are to be believed.) The result is a movie that looks good and stays relatively true to its source material without ever seeming edgy or even engaging. Perhaps a cartoon whose very appeal has always been its extreme lameness couldn't really afford to be enclosed in yet another set of quotation marks. But given the pedestrian CG and by-the-numbers spookiness on display, it seems the filmmakers couldn't come up with anything compelling to replace the missing irony. Scooby-Doo himself is an computer-generated monstrosity who mixes poorly with the human actors. Of those performers, their watchability varies highly: The delightful Matthew Lillard mimics Casey Kasem perfectly but also invests Shaggy with something approaching human feeling. Linda Cardellini and Sarah Michelle Gellar both subvert feminine stereotypes and provoke chuckles, though within very strict parameters. The less said about Freddie Prinze, Jr., the better, though his blond dye job is far worse than his acting. The real blame for this supremely adequate outing lies at the feet of the corporate gatekeepers who decided to play it safe. Very young children will probably enjoy it, but for anyone older than 10, it's a slight trifle at best.
Hollywood Reporter
It's absolutely spooky how Lillard channels the Shagster right down to the original Casey Kasem-furnished voice.

    THIS SUCKS!!!!!!!

    I love Scrappy doo! They made Scrappy-doo look evil! Anyone who hates Scrappy should take a good look at them selfs. Scrappy's a part of the gang, so you aren't a real scooby-doo fan if you don't like Scrappy. This movie is a waste.

    This Movie Rocks!!!!!!

    This is the best movie on the planet. Before I didn't even know who scooby doo was. This i would defenetly say is the best movie on the earth. I've had it for a little bit over five months now and I've watched it over 12 times. Don't listen to anybody that says that this movie stinks. It doesn't. Believe me. There is no better movie on the planet than this one. It is great for teens and adults. There is comedy only adults would understand and there is comedy everybody would laugh at. I wouldn't recomend this movie for little kid though. There are some scarry parts in it. Otherwise this movie ROCKS THE HOUSE!!!!!!

    SCOOBY DOO: DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME

    Okay- I'll admit it- i do like Scooby Doo- THE CARTOON! This movie ruined Scooby Doo forever- i mean, just think about this: you CAN'T make a villian out of Scrappy Doo of all people (er, dogs) I mean, ever since i was little I've LOVED Scrappy Doo- he was my favorite character! And you just can't make him a villian- he's Scooby's cousin for cryin' out loud! Warner Bros. wasted their time with this one- it really sucks. And I am not joking. They go to an island where they meet this guy who's really Scrappy, the ''villian'' and he has a so called problem even though he's really the villian and not really the guy because the real guy is locked up in some hole but we don't find this out until the end. They brainwash everyone and make them obey his every command- including Shaggy's ''girlfriend''- another problem since Shaggy is incapable of having a girlfriend he's just so dumb (but that's his character so let's keep it that way) but at least she's as stupid as he is. The guy locks the peoples souls up in a well thing and they can't get out and they don't have eyes and do some stupid dance. Scrappy Doo gets big and strong and UGLY and he just isn't the villian type! Freddie Prinze Jr. looks like and idiot with that bleached hair and if i was in that movie i'd be embarrased. I give this movie a -100 for the rating- but they don't have that so I'll give it a one. And i know i gave away the whole movie but that's okay because now you don't have to see it so you can save your time and money. Don't waste your time on this one- it isn't worth it

    Scooby-Doo Fan

    I grew up with the Scooby-Doo Cartoons. I thought this was a great movie. I like the way they made Scooby so real like. I had wondered how the director was going to get a dog to do all the antics that the Scooby-Doo in the cartoons accomplished. My family really like this movie and we will be adding this one to the rest of our movie's at home.

    Scooby-Doo jumps from animation to live action

    Another old kids series makes a jump from animation to live action. And this time it is Scooby Doo. And for the first time since the late 80's, a Scooby Doo movie has come out and runs at least 90 minutes. As the movie opens, Fred (Freddie Prinze Jr) gives himself all the credit in the gang's newest case. Which leads Velma (Linda Cardellini) to quit and then the gang breaks up expect for Shaggy (Matthew Lillard) and best friend Scooby Doo. After two years the gang is still not back together, and all of them even Daphne (Sarah Michelle Gellar) accept a case to a spooky island. Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean) plays the island's owner Emile Mondavarious. If you are a big Scooby Doo fan, I recommend you to watch this movie.
