Everybody's a critic - 'Scooby-Doo'

Friday, June 21, 2002


Who do you call when you have ghost problems and no Ghostbusters?

You call Scooby-Doo and the Gang of Mystery, Inc.

"Scooby-Doo" is based off the zany cartoon series of the '70s. Fred (Freddie Prinze Jr.), Daphne (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Velma (Linda Cardellini), Shaggy (Matthew Lillard) and Scooby-Doo are all back -- well, sort of back -- on screen. The mystery is to find out what keeps turning college students into zombies at a theme park called Spooky Island.

This movie was, in the words of Shaggy, "Far out man." I have been a fan of Scooby-Doo all my life and really enjoyed this movie. Matthew Lillard and Linda Cardelli are great. My only disappointment was the way Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar were way off the mark playing Fred and Velma. Scooby was done via CGI and was very well done.
