What makes this movie delightful is the ability of the direction and live
actors to capture the essence of the animated action found in the original
cartoon series. A number of the scenes appear to be lifted straight out of
the cartoon series like where Scooby Doo and Shaggy are prowling around in a
house and you find them carrying each other just as in the cartoon version.
There are a number of such scenes that really hit the animated button and is
a treat to actually see it transferred onto the large screen with real
actors. Though not perfect, this movie has its obvious flaws where some
scenes are so overboard that it detracts from the flow of the movie and in
some places it drags abit. But overall, the tone, flavor of the movie, even
the flairs of emotional drama and simple moral and juvenile dilemmas that
the cast face about being a nerd, being cool, being loved add an enhanced
quality to this movie targeted towards children (except for the obnoxious
product placement at the beginning of the movie). Seven out of ten
