     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.
