Scooby Doo- The Mystery Begins

A group of unknowns in an unofficial sequel to the big budget Warner Brother movies. This is destined to fail.vlcsnap-2009-09-19-20h25m53s33

Oddly enough this works, despite the bizarre decision to cast a brunette as Fred and Shaggys all too bushy beard, terrible acting, bad cgi, anachronous timeline and obvious lack of budget. I think what gels it together for me is the strength of the script which is pure Scooby Doo and obviously written by somebody who knows their Doo. Sort of. I didn’t like the inclusion of the real ghosts and the disguise scene as shown in the trailer above was very “meh” but the central conceit worked really, really well. vlcsnap-2009-09-19-20h26m02s131

Scooby Doo 3 is well worth picking up on a rental and passes the time well, as with most films on budgets it is well aware what it can and can’t get away with and tempers the script accordingly.
