  • Ron Wells

    At least the 20 people who saw it with me -- found it hysterically funny. On the other hand, they all seemed pretty stoned.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    No serious film fan could stomach the cheap gags and farting contests in this goofball tribute. I laughed myself stupid anyway.

    Salon.com Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    You don't want to love this, but you will. Although Scooby-Doo falls far short of becoming the "Blazing Saddles" of Generations X, Y and Z, it is hard to resist in its moronic charms.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Robert K. Elder

    Knows when to take itself seriously and when to laugh at itself -- even if its audience isn't laughing along at every gag.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Would I see it again? Not even for a Scooby snack.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Joe Leydon

    Just fast, frenetic and funny enough to amuse both new fans and longtime devotees of the characters who have inspired more than 30 years worth of animated TV episodes and made-for-video features.

    Variety Full Review
  • Jonathan Curiel

    Do you really want to spend money watching what is essentially marginality, or would those dollars be better used to see a better film or even buy a good book?

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Christopher Muther

    This dog will inevitably let down purists looking for the elusive combination of smart and funny.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mark Washburn

    I took a 12-year-old along to Scooby Doo just in case I didn't get it. Our verdict: one paw up, one paw down.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    As live-action adaptations of cheap, unapologetically stupid cartoons go, this is top of the line: The cast is appealing, the sets brightly colored and fun to look at, the mystery as lame and goofy as any featured in the many inexplicably beloved Scooby-Doo cartoons.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Scooby's just so dang cute, what's the point in grousing?

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • J. Hoberman

    As this movie knows what it is, Scooby-Doo's a relatively painless 85 minutes.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Joel Stein

    The cast does great impressions of the original cartoon characters, and the computer-generated Scooby is convincing, but it turns out that what we liked about Scooby-Doo in the first place was that nobody was trying.

    Time Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    The antics involving ghosts, chases, and burping that divert the small fry don't mix with the jokey, tribute-band dialogue spouting from the Mystery, Inc. gang.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • William Arnold

    The film's technological selling point -- having a computer-animated Scooby in a mostly live-action world -- is strangely unimpressive. In fact, it's virtually unnoticeable: a testament perhaps to the audience's increasing knowledge that in today's CG-driven Hollywood, all movies are cartoons.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Not entirely without charm.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    The best thing you can say about Scooby-Doo is that Matthew Lillard makes a really, really good Shaggy.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    It's unclear why the writers bothered to update the cartoon, unless it was to expand the possibilities for quips and jokey ideas. If so, they failed in their mission, as the movie elicits few laughs.

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Captures the essence of its TV inspiration, which is to say that it's not nearly as clever as it thinks it is. It also feels very, very long.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Mostly, the plot is busy and incomprehensible and the action sequences directed with all the art of a detonation.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Robin Rauzi

    As reformulated by the aggressively mediocre director Raja Gosnell and screenwriter James Gunn, this Scooby-Doo is entertainment more disposable than Hanna-Barbera's half-hour cartoons ever were.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Not only am I ill-prepared to review the movie, but I venture to guess that anyone who is not literally a member of a Scooby-Doo fan club would be equally incapable. This movie exists in a closed universe, and the rest of us are aliens. The Internet was invented so that you can find someone else's review of Scooby-Doo. Start surfing.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    This excruciating adaptation of the innocuous '70s cartoon show makes the film version of "Josie and the Pussycats" look sophisticated by comparison.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Kim Morgan

    Scooby-Doo is bad. Let's just get that right out of the way. Filled with unclever quips, tired humor, a lazy silliness and bland execution, the picture is a tedious puff of nothing.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Ernest Hardy

    Director Raja Gosnell apparently doesn't even try to pump life into this wan film version of the beloved Saturday-morning cartoon.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Get out your pooper-scoopers. Doo happens June 14th, warn the ads for Scooby-Doo. And they say there's no truth in Hollywood.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    A work of Battlefield Earth-level miscalculation.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The gratuitous vulgarity is just one more reason that Scooby-Doo should never have left the pound.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    Warner Bros. is presumably aiming this movie not at children but at full-grown dopers with bad munchies glued to the Cartoon Network. Dude, pass the Scooby snacks.

    New Times (L.A.) Full Review
  • Chris Kaltenbach

    Bland, inoffensive, formulaic and occasionally amusing - just like the animated kids' show that inspired it.
