Scooby-Doo

We recently watched Scooby-Doo. I had heard how bad the movie was supposed to be so I wasn’t expecting much. I was still disappointed. It was sad to see so much set design and special effects work go to such a waste.

If reports are to be believed, then most of the problems stem from the fact that the studio neutered the film in the quest to achieve a kids-friendly rating. The plot was no better or worse than the cartoon at movie length, but the opportunity to have a much funnier and more subversive script after being freed from television standards was wasted.

I have heard that they are going to make a sequel. I hereby vow that I will never pay money to see it. I might catch it if comes by on cable like this one. On my scale of 1-100, I rate it a 37.

For a complete list of my ratings go to Mike's Movie Ratings .
