Trivia

On first seeing the broken down van (with 300,000 miles on it) at Daphne's house, Velma exclaims, "it's a mystery this machine is still running." This is a reference to the eventual name of the van, i.e., The Mystery Machine. See more »

Fun DVD fare
16 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It may not have the gloss of the two previous live action Scooby films but this one still has all the heart and fun of those two films. It will entertain families in the same way that the classic cartoon did over forty years ago.

An all new cast do a fair job of playing the iconic characters and the story plods along at a pace that can be enjoyed by both parents and kids alike.

There are flaws in the plot but it does come across as more than just a DVD spin and that is a testament to the cast.

Overall this is funny and entertaining enough of a film for those who have enjoyed the previous live action Scooby outings.
