This movie doesn't know who it's aimed at. Kids, adults, teens, those who love Scooby, or those that hate him. Because of this we get one big jumbled mess of a movie. Oh it starts off nice enough and you'll laugh your head off at certain points. But then they do something that any writer shouldn't do; listen to the internet message board rantings of nerds. There seems to be some sort of hate towards Scappy doo. OK fine, I could live with the mean little joke half way through the film. But it doesn't play right. Scooby loves his nephew, as does the rest of the gang. And so does, I would assume, anyone who grew up watching the show in the 80's. So why are we forced to see scrappy acting so out of character? I could live with the dopy Fred and the Brainless Daphine. Fred was made fun of in 'A Pup named Scooby Doo', which was a clever spoof of the series. This movie, like Shrek, makes me wonder about the morals we're trying to teach our kids. When one kid in the theater saw what they did to Scrappy he started to cry. I heard a couple kids asking their parents unaswerable questions about why they did what they did as they left. It didn't bother the kids I was with, but it bothered me. I found myself so upset I wasn't even interested in the outcome of the film. How can you feel good about a movie that takes a character and makes fun of it for the sake of those that hate him? Real good move. Too bad they didn't say that Scappy was under a voodoo curse, or something. That would have made it all better. Another problem is the fact that the plot seems to be recycled from 'Scooby Doo on Zombie Island', a feature that wasn't all that original to begin, (how often can they do a plot where they see monsters for the first time anyway?) But this 1998 film outshines the live action movie six ways from Sunday. Do yourself a favor, save $25 and go rent this for the kids instead. Th.
