Storyline

When Mystery, Inc. are guests of honor at the grand opening of the Coolsville Museum of Criminology, a masked villain shows up and creates havoc before stealing the costumes of the gang's most notorious villains: Black Knight Ghost, Pterodactyl Ghost and Tar Monster. Could it be that their nemesis, mad scientist Jonathan Jacobo has returned and is trying to recreate their deadliest foes? Velma has a crush on the hunk / museum curator Patrick Wisely but why is he acting so suspicious? The Mystery Gang is hard pressed to succeed this time, since pesky TV reporter Heather Jasper-Howe insists they are buffoons. Written by Mattias Thuresson

Scooby and the gang do the monster mash. Jinkys!
11 August 2009 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Mystery Inc. are back and quickly in all sorts of trouble when some dastardly villain steals a load of costumes worn by their old enemies and sets about recreating them into the monsters they once were. As the public turn on them, and they turn on each other, it becomes increasingly difficult to stay focused on the task at hand and solve this latest mystery.

No doubt, many went along with their kids to see this movie with heavy hearts. The first cinematic outing for Scooby and the gang was just above average, the effects were decidedly varied in quality and there was far too much time given to moments of puerile humour (yes, kids do like the odd fart gag but there are better ways they can be done). The pleasant surprise is that not only is this movie entertaining enough to keep you amused while the kids are happy but it's also better than it's predecessor.

One of the main strengths, as in the first film, is the casting. Freddie Prinze Jr. is great as a rather vain Fred, Sarah Michelle Gellar is spot-on as Daphne, Linda Cardellini is great as Velma and Matthew Lillard is about as Shaggy-tastic as a real life counterpart of Shaggy could be. Scooby Doo is portrayed by CGI but that's smoother and better this time around so the leads are all pretty much perfect. Round the cast out with the likes of Peter Boyle, Tim Blake Nelson, Alicia Silverstone and Seth Green and it makes for a good crowd you don't mind hanging out with for the 90-odd minutes.

The next major strength here is the plot: simple and yet with enough Scooby Doo mystery moments, it allows everyone to enjoy the proceedings while especially rewarding fans with appearances from some fondly remembered baddies. If this had all been thought out and prepped for the first movie then a lot of disappointment could have been spared.

Mixing fun, wacky moments (mainly featuring Shaggy and Scooby who, let's face it, everyone wants to watch anyway) with some fun one-liners (my personal favourite exchange is between Shaggy and Velma: "This is tied for the most terrifying day of my life!". . . "Tied with what?" . . . "Every other freaking day of my life!") and some decent thrills pitched just right for the target audience provides a fun family movie that's not too painful for the adults who may have wanted to spend their time elsewhere. Yes, there are a couple of fart gags thrown in again but they're actually quite funny this time around which just highlights how off-target the first film managed to be.

See this if you liked: "Scooby-Doo", Underdog, Paws.
