...actually, I wasn't dissing Atkinson in any way, shape, or form. I liked his performance in Rat Race, and what (pathetically little) I've gotten to see of BlackAdder I've really enjoyed. I just liked the Moron Brothers a heck of a lot more, especially considering Atkinson wasn't in the movie all that terribly much.

I hope CGI Scooby works out better than all those lame glowy CGI monsters from those action movies *cough* Clones *cough* Scorpion King ants. Real animals would be better unless they do those Cats and Dogs lip syncing...yuck.
Worst movie ever? Well, the best parts could be in the trailer. I'm hoping there's more.
Argh, Rat Race was the most frustrating movie I've seen because I thought it was so close to being a damn good movie. Rowan Atkinson was amusing, Amy Smart was beautiful and totally insane, and everyone for the first 70 or so min. was just so malevolent and evil. If they had gone that way all the way to the end, that movie would have rocked. But the last 15 min. or so, when they go all happy ending on us just killed the spirit of the film, and ruined it all for me. Perhaps it's just I don't like Smash Mouth though.
Glad to see someone bring up the Rowan stand-up act. When he starts playing the invisible drums I mark out every time
As for the original topic, how can you make a movie where Velma is as hot as Daphne. Velma needed to be played by Janeane Garafalo.

There is *way* not enough hate going on here for Freddie Prick Jr. Did anyone catch this ass clown on Letterman the other night. What a guy, he threw out the word "retard" not once, not twice, but thrice. He actually said something like this "In his town everyone played football, but he didn't like football, he wanted to be more creative that is what made him an actor (crowd snickers the thought of Freddie Prick thinking of himself as a real actor... then he comes out with) everyone in my town thought I was retarded (insert uneasy seconds)... He is on top of my list of How the Hell is this guy famous, I look at him and I DON'T see anything.
As for scobby doo, I always thought the character Freedie was one of the most annoying cartoon characters ever. I hated him, he pissed me off, with his blonde hair and his scarf and his always driving the van, errrrr booo Freedie... Wait a sec maybe that's why they have Prinze, atleast he does't have to remember that his character has a different name, his name is Freedie, character name is Freedie, It should make things easier on Prinze Junior.
I don't get it, everyone loves rats, but they don't want to drink the rats milk?
Originally posted by Papercuts! Not only is SMG one of the most foul actresses (looking and acting -- her hair looks like it would break off if you touched it because it's been dyed so much) in Hollywood, she's also a mental giant. Recently, she was quoted as saying that Buffy The Vampire Slayer wouldn't work as a movie.
Wha, wha, WHA?! Not work as a... Damn she is stupid!
The whole reason I never got into the TV series was that it wasn't a comedy like the movie. Monsters go after the cheerleader, only she takes them out instead. Wackiness ensues. And nobody has a better death scene than Paul Ruebens (sp?).
Maybe I don't remember Scoobie Doo. I doubt it though. Wasn't it about a pot smoking dog and some dirty hippie having the muchies? It was a horrible show but most Hanna/Barbara cartoons were lame in the 70's. The casting does suck. SMG is a bad choice they got her for her name. And Freddie Suck Jr. is horrible. I still wake up in a cold sweat thinking about Wing Commander.
I just have 13 words for you. How much wood would a woodchuch chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
H.P. Lovecraft used to say in his stories that one look at Cthulu would make you go insane trying to comprehend it. Cthulu must look lot like the trailers for "Scooby Doo."
I hate this movie. I always hated Scooby Doo (maybe because it replaced "Star Blazers" on my fave channel I was a kid) and I've already SEEN the movie, anyways.
I'm reasonably certain the movie will pretty much be the same gags from their bit in "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back," only lethally stretched out to 90 minutes of agony because we are pawns of a hateful supreme being and because it was easier to do this than something vaguely watchable.
Why can't they do a movie of a good TV show, like "BJ and the Bear?"
And don't dis Rowan too bad--he makes horrible choices in films. Eddie Izzard's had a bad run too, and as bad as Rowan's career has been at least he stayed far away from "The Avengers."
I'll only watch it if the movie ends with the on-screen deaths of the Scooby Gang and the actors playing them, preferably in a ghastly "Mondo Cane" or "Cannibal Holocaust" way.
It may seem harsh, but dammit, I sat through "Wing Commander" and I want BLOOD.

Back to Scooby Doo: FPJ is a talentless oaf. He's one of those people that's so stupid, it's amazing to me that they haven't accientally killed themselves by now. SMG's screwing him, so that should at least tell you something about her taste.
At least Lillard seems excited to be there. He's seems pretty enthusiastic about his role, and he may be the lone bright spot in this movie.
Cardellini: "Scooby Doo, your name means Scooby Poo?!?!" Ugh.
I liked Scooby Doo as a kid, but I do not understand this nostalgia revival it's been undergoing for the last couple of years. Even then I thought it was a pretty dumb cartoon, except for the ones with the celebrity guest stars (especially the Globetrotters).
I saw a program on Scooby Doo on E! television this morning. The hosts said several portions of the movie were cut to make it more "family friendly" including (and I shit you not) a scene where Shaggy is all stoned and saying "ZOINKS" over and over AND a scene in which Velma reveals her lesbo attraction for Daphne.
Man, this movie could have rocked. :)

Thank God there are other Prinze haters in here. I am not usually a good judge of good acting vs. bad acting, but even I could see that Prinze Jr. was SO STULTIFYING bad in "I Know What You Did Last Summer." And he is rewarded for his bad acting by getting with SMG? Damn.
Lillard is always decent, but he plays the same character in every movie. He is always the wacky friend (Scooby Doo notwithstanding). It worked well in Scream though.

Nope, it counts. Haven't seen it.
Imagine my dismay when I got to the end of Rat Race.
How can there be a Scooby Doo movie without Guest Stars and Scooby Dumb? I want Johnathan Winters, I want the Globetrotters, I want Batman and Robin, damn it I want someone to play Mama Cass running from the Chocolate Monsters! And most of all I want that guy who sang "Pretty Mary Sunshine!"
So now Scooby Dumb, Scrappy, or Scooby Dee eh? Must be saving that for the TRILOGY! -EVIL LAUGH- HAHAHAHAHAHAAHA!

You'll want to avoid the under $100 crowd for the most part for the obvious reasons. A popular player for the "region-free" crowd is the $100-$150 Sampo DVE-611, which also converts PAL to NTSC televisions.
