Leo Brady reviews “Scoob!” on AMovieGuy.com

In 2020 the hits just keep on coming. A pandemic, a recession, murder hornets, people losing their lives, and people losing their jobs. The only thing we can look forward to are the movies we get direct at home, right? Right? This weekend we get Scoob!, a new animated film following the hijinks of that wacky Mystery Squad, featuring Fred (Zac Efron), Velma (Gina Rodriguez), Daphne (Amanda Seyfried), Shaggy (Will Forte), and his friendly talking dog Scooby-doo (Frank Welker). The colors are bright and it’s something to watch with the kids, but as soon as it ended I had to wonder, do today’s kids care or even know about Scooby-doo? Director Tony Cervone and six different writers seem to think so, but don’t have the confidence to let the audience consume anything that they just watched. Scoob! is a fast moving, colorful, and unfulfilling waste of money. I mean, like, zoinks! Did I think Scoob! was awful.
