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 enemies? Velma has a crush on the museum curator Patrick Wisely despite her fears of intimacy but why is he acting so suspicious? The Mystery Gang is hard pressed to succeed this time, since annoying television reporter Heather Jasper-Howe insists they are buffoons.Written by
There is a game in the DVD special features where one of the levels is set in the Coolsville Museum. There it features a monster known as the Mermaid. The Mermaid comes from the book, Scooby Doo & You: The Case of the Mad Mermaid. See more »
When the gang receives a fax on the results of the dinosaur
scale, Velma takes it away from Shaggy and it appears that she is looking at one side of it. In the next shot the fax is turned the opposite way. See more »
The video version is re-edited slightly; the film caused controversy upon release when concern parents found its comical drug references to be a little too out-in-the-open and explicit for a film intended for children. The VHS and DVD releases excise some of this objectionable humor, and the theatrical version has never been re-released. See more »
lacks the charm and warmth of the first one,and it's also less fun
i was rather disappointed in this movie.i just felt it didn't have the same charm and sense of fun as the first one.i think it tries to take itself too seriously at times.don't get me wrong,there are some funny moments,but there are less of them and they don't work as well this time around.i think they just got old.there's also a bit of a subplot which i didn't think had much point.there are a lot more monsters in this one,so it should be exciting,but it it really isn't.in fact,i found it slow at times.it doesn't have the same pacing as the first one.this movie also gets into the "just be yourself,we're all OK" syndrome.now there nothing wrong with that.it is a good message.but this movie shouldn't really be the forum for that.this is a type of movie that should just be fun and entertaining.beside,it throws off the pacing of the movie.also,there is a bit of innuendo,some sexual,some not.it's very subtle,but it's there.any way,i can't give "Scooby Doo 2:Monsters Unleashed" more than 5/10
