Goofs

When the teens are serving their detention in the library and the weather storm begins, at one point Velma says "unusual 'climactic' anomaly" referring to the impending weather storm. In fact Velma should have said "unusual 'climatic' anomaly. Her use of the adjective is in error as "climactic" refers to the word "climax" whereas "climatic" would be the adjective to use when referring to "climate." See more »

Exactly what I expected...Fun for the whole family!!!
13 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just got done watching the new movie and I have to say that I was very impressed. The acting is better than you would expect and the story line is decent. Since I was real young I've always loved Scooby Doo. When I found out they were making another live action movie I got really excited. Then I found out It was not going to the movies and I started to worry. Then when I found out that Fred was not blonde and Velma was Japenease(something like that)I freaked out. But after watching it I realized the new Fred and Velma worked. The only problem I had with Velma was how she said Jinkies. My favorite part of the movie was the ending. How the makers remade the opening credits of the cartoon. That was really cool. This movie is very entertaining for all people who are fans of Scooby. I highly recommend it. 9/10
