This one really works. Good story with just the right twists. Shaggy and Scooby have their eye on a couple of hotties and for good reason. I liked the romance in this one and it actually played into the story just right. Clever.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (6 ):

You get what you expect from this Scooby-Doo adventure. "Those meddling kids" get to the bottom of what's plaguing a small town. As a fun extra, you get Shaggy in love with a mysterious and groovy girl who's brought the perfect lady friend for Scooby-Doo. Shaggy's dream sequence love song is pretty corny, but in a fun way. There's another forgettable song thrown in too, getting the run time up to feature-length status.

Kids may be weirded out by the idea of alien abduction (though it's not as harrowing as it sounds), but it's just another day's work for Scooby-Doo and the gang.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
