It Was Cute

Warner Brothers does it again, it manages to put out something that is entertaining to watch. I liked this movie, it isn't my favourite put out in the past five years, but it is still a good Scooby-Doo movie, plus I loved the references to Alien in it that kids would not get, but as an adult, I appreciated it.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Lots of topical humor in this story, and the stereotype-bashing is very clever: When U-Boat, a bear of a football player, sings about being afraid, it's a show-stopper. The constant self-admiration of Sly Baron is topped only by the roughneck astronauts' attitude, who realize that age might soon be an issue for them. The action and scary scenes are limited to the usual explosions, falling debris, knockdowns, and character missteps. Only the space alien's presence could be too much for little kids. It flies around with jagged teeth, its burning red eyes, and long dragon-like tail, wreaking havoc on the spaceship and on the moon. Positive messages combine with a surprise ending to make this an enjoyable entry in the Scooby-Doo franchise.
