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
There was a gag, created by the animators at Rhythm & Hues, where Scooby would turn into his cartoon version when he mistakenly drinks a potion. The gag was not in the script and was at one point chosen to replace a less-favored gag in which Scooby would turn into George W. Bush. In the end, Warner Brothers decided that they didn't want the audience to compare 2D Scooby to 3D Scooby, so they chose to have him turn into the Tasmanian Devil instead. See more »
When scooby is spraying the monsters with a fire extinguisher in the final scene, he is shown freezing the tar monster then breaking through him. When he is flying through the air to get the control panel, you see the tar monster unfrozen and perfectly fine as the pterodactyl flew into him. See more »
You can't fool me with that macho facade. You're just afraid to show your sensitive side.
Black Knight Ghost:
Oh... you've touched my inner child... and he's REALLY MAD!

At the very end after all the credits roll, Scooby is shown in a creepy hall playing a "Scooby Doo" game on a Game Boy Advance. He then turns the game screen towards the camera, and says "Rook! Rodes!" (Look! Codes!), showing a cheat code for the game he was playing. See more »
The original Scooby Doo was bad. It couldn't decide if it was a straight live action version or a parody of Scooby Doo. That movie had an obnoxious tone to it. The sequel, however, is better. The action seems to be moving faster than the original. There are no fewer than three of the famous foot chases that Scooby Doo is famous for. The movie doesn't make a lot of sense, but it is going too fast for anybody to notice. The actors seem more comfortable in their roles this time around, especially Freddie Prinze, Jr. as Fred. Prinze was incredibly smug in the first movie. This time he seems to have dialed it down more. The actors are performing more as a team this time. These are people who like each other in this movie and not as five individuals. This is not a great movie, with unnecessary amounts of grotesque humor. Alicia Silverstone is wasted in a minor role. Overall, get a free ticket if you can to see in a theatre or rent it on video. 6/10
