Is watching farting and burping contests actually entertaining?
My answer, no; a little kids answer, yes. My eight year-old brother
attended the screening of Scooby Doo with me and thought it was
hilarious. But me, I thought it was repulsive ignorance undignified
within the crudeness of the characters. Not to mention, the bad acting
characters. The only acting I enjoyed was from the one character that
was computerized! Scooby Doo.
Now, I liked Scooby the most, and I share that
opinion with billions of other people. So, why didn't they just make
the whole movie animated! That would truly be the best way to make the
film. The studio would end-up paying less money, the kids wouldn't
care, and the movie would've been greatly improved as a whole.
Computerizing the whole movie would've been the best option! Why not
just make it like Shrek!
This film, and almost all other films I
dislike have devious potential, but they just didn't work out. Here
that's not very evident, Scooby Doo was enjoyable for a while,
but it just turned out to be stupid in the end. The gang's old pal
from the cartoon turned out to be the villain, I mean what kind of
similarity does that have?! Nothing fit in this film, everything was
there, but it was desperately out of place.
Now I will say I enjoyed Sarah Michelle
Gellar, every normal guy does! She brought sex appeal to the table in
the numerous fight scenes. Her emphasis on the dialogue was so very
bad, except at the same time it just felt so good. Every character in
Scooby Doo just didn't have what the movie needed, but if
you're talking Baywatch, they did! I felt like I was undergoing an act
of pity when Pamela Anderson commode, the harmless PG fun went into
some kind of adult porno!
The only character I enjoyed was the dog,
Scooby. He played funny little jokes with clever dialogue that I
completely adored! Scooby was my safe haven, he made the movie fun to
watch and worthwhile. But at the same time, I was desperately plunging
into a black hole while dying a slow painful death. He was the only
comedic effort that pleased me. I broke out in laughter when he
dressed up like a little old lady so he could board the airplane,
while everyone else were having horrible allergy attacks.
I can't say I enjoyed Scooby Doo to the
extent that I would see it again. But, some parts I did enjoy and I
did laugh at. You know, kids under 10 will absolutely adore this film
for every moment but the trick is enjoying it with them! If you can
enjoy it yourself, than Scooby Doo will be a pleasurable family
experience. I would also say this is a genuine date flick, women will
find Scooby Doo a cute, adorable doggedly dog. But, if you're single
and over the age 10, don't waste your time on such a movie. Go see
something like The Bourne Identity or Insomnia.
