My soon-to-be 3-year-old daughter loves the first movie. She insists on seeing the sequel whenever a commercial comes on. A (meathead) colleague told me his (dumbass) wife took their (halfwit) children to see it and said they enjoyed it far more than the first.
I was supremely disappointed with the first one. I had heard that the live-action Scooby would be aimed squarely at the FIRST generation of fans, in age as well as adult content, and that it would be as satirical as the Brady Bunch movie. Rumors abounded of the true ingredients of "Scooby snacks," a lesbian scene with Daphne and Velma, and a shot of Shaggy holding a sign that read "Pot for Sale," only to reveal him selling a clay pot from the back of the Mystery Machine.
Needless to say, they chose a different direction.
I asked Matthew Dillard at a licensing show if there would be any such outtakes on the DVD. He said he was hopeful since a lot of stuph got cut. It could only get better, right?
(And I found the Scooby parody from Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back infinitely more satisfying.)
