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
Veteran creature and makeup effects artist Steve Johnson was hired to create the monsters for the film. His team designed and did test for most of the monsters until production decided to not feature some of the monsters and assigned a Vancouver based effects shop some of the monsters, one which was Miner Forty-Niner. Some of the monsters that Johnson's team did test for but didn't get used were the Creeper and the Ghost of Redbeard. See more »
When Shaggy is flexing his muscles the refrigerator door is open and he's standing right in front of it but in the next shot when he throws the potion that Scooby made, the door is closed and he's standing off to the side. See more »
Depending on the version one watches, there is product placement for either KFC or Burger King, when Scooby accidentally spills his milkshake onto the chauffeur and before that, he eats either a BK Whopper or a KFC Chicken Sandwich. 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
