It's one giant step for dog-kind as Scooby-Doo and the Gang blast off for an epic, other-worldly adventure in this all-new original movie! After winning the last 5 seats in a lottery, Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne and Velma are off to space in billionaire Sly Baron's brand new ship, the Sly Star One. It's all gravity-free fun until a mysterious alien begins destroying the ship! As the ship breaks down, the crew is forced to land on Sly Baron's base... on the dark side of the moon! Will the gang unravel this alien mystery? Will Scooby-Doo and Shaggy find snacks on the moon? Will Fred ever take his space helmet off?! Journey to the outer limits with Scooby-Doo to find out!
Can you scream "Jumping the Shark!" at the top of your lungs? It feels like they are jumping the shark on this.
Actually, no, it feels a bit like it's trying to be the Animaniacs. A lot of the jokes, a ,lot of the references, a lot of the parodies seemed like they came out of the Animaniacs.
The only thing is, the Animaniacs could have taken them to the next level and made them funny as where Scooby Doo is too grounded in Scooby Doo humor to make things like the Ellen Ripley spoof anything but annoying.
At least there are a few decent jokes at Fred's expense and those are always worth while.
But the Enter the Dragon Daphne seems retconned away to the vapid arm candy of old...and in the most humorless of possible ways.
All in all, this installment fails miserably. Possibly the worst Scooby Doo movie to date.
