It’s fine but a little bit boring

Not as bad as some other movies but really boring

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Almost enough jokes and slapstick action in this nifty tale to keep Scooby fans fully engaged, but at 92 minutes (a single car race lasts for almost half the time), it wears out its comic welcome. Made in 1988, Scooby-Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf features Shaggy, Scooby-Doo, his nephew Scrappy-Doo, and Googie. Fred, Velma, and Daphne are missed, but there are so many monster characters that the screen is fully-populated with funny, over-the-top characters from start to finish. Some masters of evil-doing are particularly amusing -- Dracula and The Hunch Bunch, to name a few. It's interesting to note that most of the later "full-length" Scooby adventures are ten to twenty minutes shorter than this one. It was a smart modification. Lots of comic jeopardy and action makes this best for kids who have learned the difference between real and pretend violence.
