The film itself isn't terribly good, but the casting of Shaggy, Scooby and Velma is pretty much spot on. It's not massively scary, but not recommended for very young children. However, it at times feels aimed more at teenagers than kids, and feels uncomfortable for a film based on a children's cartoon in a number of ways...
1) The skimpy, tight, low cut, cleavage emphasising outfits on the women...Who is that aimed at?!
2) Fred and Daphne switch bodies and Fred looks down at his new found breasts and states in a grossly perverted voice "heeey, I can look at myself naked...", while pulling his / her top open to sneak a peek. He then continues to rub his new female body, including some breast groping, while the real Daphne (in Fred's body) protests, telling him to stop touching her body, and Fred ignores her lack of consent.
3) Scrappy Doo tells Fred "you don't have the scrote for this job" and appears to grab his own crotch below camera and vaguely thrust as he says it. There's also a scene where Fred jokes to Scooby something like "this is more embarrassing than the time you were caught cleaning your beans" in the middle of a party.
4) There are a couple of drug references, including Fred freaking out at the situation he is in and telling Shaggy in a mock stoner voice he thinks someone spiked his drink, and begging Shaggy to "talk me down, man. Talk me down" from the high.
5) Daphne states she's going to open a can of "whoop ass", and Scrappy shouts "I would have got away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling sons of..." before being cut off just short of 'the B word". Fred at one point also uses the word "b-yotch", which is obviously the subtle form of 'the B word'.
All might be worth being aware of and keeping in mind when deciding if this film is appropriate for your child.
