Well Done Movie

This is a good one to approach with an open mind. If you don't like pro wrestling, bug out because there is no real reason to watch but if you are even ok with pro wrestling and love Sccoby-Doo ... there is a lot to like here. The story is actually pretty interesting and while it could use a little more actual wrestling scenes, it regardless gets a passing grade from me because it's fun and interesting.

Great for watching with the family but some violence in the movie

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (4 ):

This movie might be enjoyable for fans of pro wrestling and the characters of the WWE, but for Scooby fans, this is definitely not the best in the franchise. SCOOBY-DOO! WRESTLEMANIA MYSTERY is little more than one giant product tie-in for WWE, their character "brands," and their Wrestlemania pay-per-view event. As it turns out, Scooby-Doo and the gang are huge pro wrestling fans (who knew?), and frequently discuss how much they love Wrestlemania and performers like John Cena. In terms of the actual writing, the storyline is as formulaic as they come -- even for a Scooby-Doo mystery -- and all the charm of the old cartoon is lost as these characters are a little too self-aware; for instance, Daphne holds two matching green scarves in front of Velma and asks her which one she should wear when she sees John Cena. Families who aren't big wrestling fans are better off tracking down the original series.
