Scooby Doo

Starring: Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr., Matthew Lillliard, Linda Cardellini and Rowan Atkinson
Directed by: Raja Gosel
Rated: PG

 

 

Scooby Doo is a groovy summer movie for the whole family! Fred, Velma, Daphne Shaggy and, of course, Scooby have made it onto the big screen it's just plain old fun!

Sure some parts, like a moronic cameo by Pamela Anderson, will have you checking to be sure you know where the exits are…just in case…but there's no need. Then there are the ongoing innuendos about Shaggy (Matthew Lilliard) and his subscription to 'High Times' if you know what I'm saying. They're a hoot. They play up narcissistic Fred's (Freddie Prinze Jr.) affection for himself….giggle. Velma ( Linda Cardellini) is still the 'Pat' that we all remember. And Daphne (Sarah Michele Gellar) is the snooty perfectly girly-girl adorable in perpetual purple (a fall color)-even in May!

Story goes the Mystery Gang has gone their separate ways. That is until they all receive a mysterious invite to a famous college vacation spot called Spooky Island to help poor Mr. Mondavarious (Rowan Atkinson) solve a pesky mystery.

Mondavarious' present genre of guests arrive as normal free-spirited hard drinkin' parting pre-society SUV driving- Gap wearing plugs and depart in a strange trance devoid of any personality.

Creep-o-rama. The Mystery Gang soon discovers clues in the way of blatant thrown about ten story building size clues - just like the old show! They also discover they all need each other if they really want to solve the cause. Each has a skill, or better put, a way of getting to the case. So, naturally they all make up and began to do what they do best.

Its silly nonsensical fun! Matthew Lilliard does an uncanny Shaggy in both voice and physical appearance. What? You think that's easy? Shaggy's a cartoon bent and wiry with a voice just on the verge of "breaking" and Mat appeared to be more indelible ink than flesh and blood without the use of CGI enhancements. Bravo!

Sarah Michelle (don't even mention Buffy or I'll freakin' flip-out) Gellar plays Daphne. She oozes the snobbiness with ease. Hmmmm.

Freddy Prinze Jr, as Fred, is not one of my faves but here as a brainless, self-centered manpig he seemed to shine. Hmmm.

Linda Capellini, er, Cardelinni is Velma.

The film's there to have a giggle and spend some time with the family. There's nothing incredible (Liiliard's Shaggy aside). But some times a movie is just that; fun and pointless!Enjoy.

Blunt Aside: The monsters are a tad graphic and cruel so beware with the wee- ones.

Snack Recommendations: Do I have to say it? SCOOBY SNACKS!
