Having been subject to both of these films every other day thanks to my daughter being bought the double box- set, (thanks, auntie Michele!!) I feel I can review with authority!
This one feels much more gelled together than the first film. The characters fit in a lot better with their surroundings- Coolsville seems just as cartoony and two- dimensional as the main characters, but in a good way. It means there can be big creepy old buildings and abandoned factories and the like for the Gang to poke about in! The addition of Seth Green is, for me, always welcome; his character is Velma's rather geeky-but-hot-underneath love interest. Well, I think he's hot... But he and the other new characters are a lot more likeable than the characters in the first film, like Shaggy's blonde girlfriend-cum-monster, who never really appealed. I didn't care if she copped a branch in the face in the first film, but I didn't want Seth Green to turn out to be the baddie in this one! You'll have to watch it to find out if he is. It's strictly another no- brainer like the last film, and Scooby is still rather flat and charmless, but the kids will love it and you may find yourself laughing along too.
