Directed by Raja Gosnell. Starring Freddie Prinze, Jr., Linda Cardellini, Rowan Atkinson.
Ghosts haunting spooky old factories? Hip kids being brainwashed? The Darkopalypse about to engulf the world? Scooby-Doo, where are you? Well, the gang have all fallen out and dissolved the Mystery Inc partnership for good. Jinkeys! But luckily a strange invitation to solve a mystery on Spooky Island has unwittingly reunited the now-flopped members of the team. Can ghoul-getting gang get along again?
The latest in a long line of live-actioned-up retro cartoon faves, Scooby-Doo: The Movie features superb action set-pieces and seamlessly blended live actor/CGI interaction--our eponymous hero is rendered with particular panache. What's more, the special effects are backed by a scarily well-written script and some frighteningly good performances. The Buffy-tastic Sarah Michelle Gellar was born to be Daphne, and Matthew Lillard is show-stealing as the dream-to-play Shaggy. The characters themselves are darkly developed--Fred is now a vain egotist, Velma a last-picked-at-sport geek and Daphne a Clueless-style airhead. Happily, Shaggy and Scooby are still a pair of snack-happy gormless goofs for whom friendship outweighs all else.
Scooby-Doo manages to be great fun for the kids without neglecting the fans of the original (1969!) series. Alongside the fun, frights and frantic action are clever in-jokes and even a few hints at some rather adult goings on--Shaggy getting "toasted" in a smokey hippy-style camper van may explain why he's always so peckish. Throw in a surprise appearance from a love-to-hate familiar face, some Charlie's Angels-style wire work and a storming rap-rock soundtrack and it's a hit for all the family. If you're thinking of missing it, Scooby-Don't! --Paul EisingerSee all Product description

It's really rather good. There are plot holes galore, some fairly dubious props... everything coming together to make an endearingly charming and unchallenging film- a perfect antidote to the serious and sinister we live in.
An interesting plot which sees the old gang brought back together by a quirky resort owner (Atkinson) to investigate mysterious goings on at his horror island.
The cartoon gang are brought to life in believable performances by decent acting as is Scooby Doo in, what was for the time, decent enough CGI that's unfortunately aged horrendously.
Some truly humorous interactions between Shaggy and Scooby Doo throughout.
It's let down by the poor storytelling, which results in a confusing midpoint and a sudden, plothole riddled ending thanks to deleted scenes taking plot development with them.
A film worth introducing new fans to, just a shame that the sequel wasn't as good.
