(Review originally written at 14 October 2005)

This truly was an annoying, unfunny movie to watch. OK I admit I never have been a big fan of the 'Scooby-Doo' cartoons but I at least expected this movie to be entertaining.

In the beginning the movie perfectly made fun of all the early old 'Scooby-Doo' cartoons. Every episode was always the same and every character always basically did the same in every episode and the beginning of the movie perfectly makes fun of this. As the movie progresses the movie becomes more and more unoriginal and unfunny and gets a totally wrong way too fast pace.

The pace is really the thing I had the most problem with during the movie. It was way too fast and the viewer isn't getting a moment rest. On top of that there isn't really anything good or funny happening on screen. The story is way too weak and simple and the use of music songs in the movie is annoying and makes this movie an annoying, busy, noisy mess.

The Scooby-Doo character in my opinion doesn't have enough screen time to regard him as the main character. On top of that he isn't very impressive looking. CGI-characters were even in 2002 at a point of looking realistic but Scooby-Doo is way too fake looking along with all the CGI-monsters in the movie.

Sarah Michelle Gellar really is an annoying, weak actress. She really acts like an amateur in this movie. Matthew Lillard is a way better actor and he seemed like the only actor in the movie that could interact correctly and believable with the Scooby-Doo character. Also Rowan Atkinson is of course a talented comical actor and Linda Cardellini is perfectly cast as dorky Velma.

An annoying, noisy, wrongly paced movie. Still kids will perhaps still find some joy in this movie.
