Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed
Source: Catholic News Service
Stale sequel which finds Fred (Freddie Prinze Jr.), Daphne (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Velma (Linda Cardellini), Shaggy (Matthew Lillard) and Scooby (voiced by Neil Fanning) having to thwart a masked madman who is threatening to use a monster-making machine to turn their home town of Coolsville into Ghoulsville. Like his 2002 predecessor, director Raja Gosnell's intentionally campy film stays true to its cartoon roots, with spot-on characterizations of the groovy ghost-busters; however, it rarely progresses past the same sort of self-conscious parody of the first flick, resulting in a movie full of forced, retread humor and bloated special-effects sequences, lacking freshness -- not to mention a coherent plot. Some mild crude language and puerile humor, as well as some scary action sequences. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
