I see that it is estimated that Scooby Doo will make $18,300,000.00 on its opening day. At an average of, say $9 a ticket (lots of kids tickets sold probably) ... that's 2,333,333 suckers that paid to see this on Friday.

I weep for the youth of the nation. I really do.

Not to give away too many spoilers, but Scrappy Doo is in the movie.

My kids wanted to see it, so we went today. It wasn't that bad. It seemed like it couldn't decide whether to go totally camp and spoof itself (ala the Brady Bunch movie) or try to be the cartoon. It was funniest when it crossed over the the camp.It was one of those movies where you let your brain take a vacation, don't expect much, and you will be pleasantly surprised.

According to IMDb.com, the budget for Scooby Doo was $52 million.

If the $18.3 million estimate after week one is true... that doesn't sound too good.

Cripes... $52 million to remake a 30-minute episode of a cartoon? While I liked the original cartoon (before it was ruined with special guest stars, Scrappy Doo, Flim Flam, etc.), I know of a better way to spend that $52 million movie budget - give it to me! =)

You're gonna have to read my first post again. That's $18.3 million dollars its first day, not its first week. It'll crack $100 million easily ... and that means a sequel is now a given.

But on the other hand ... if Java is right and the movie ain't that bad (despite looking absolutely terrible in the trailer), well there isn't that much need to weep for the youth after all.

Previous post read. Yeah, I mistook "day" for "week." Sorry, my mistake. I blame the flu that I have while writing this. =)

(Still wonders how a cartoon re-make costs over $50 million to make...)

    The only way to make this movie worse is put Scrappy in it, the bastard.

Not only is Scrappy Doo IN the damned movie, he's the Mr. Johnson-esque villain. He's there for five minutes, then the ENTIRE THING is his doing. The entire movie is Scrappy's fault. Makes you hate that little bastard even more, don't it?

Ebert has a really funny review of the movie on his section of the Chicago Sun-Times website.
(www.sun-times.com/ebert/ebert.html)

Basically, he said he's never seen an episode of Scooby Doo and then reviews the movie, as someone it wasn't meant for.

      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?).



I have to defend SMG and 'Buffy' here (although it's sickening to see her waste away the past year or so, and from all accounts she's a complete bitch).

Essentially, her quote above is misinterpreted. She said that 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' DIDN'T work as a movie, which is true if you're just looking at the box office. Personally, I loved the movie, which is what drew me to the TV series. Sure, it started out as drama/horror, but rather quickly developed into what is IMHO the best (and often the funniest) show on TV. Their musical episode is better than the majority of the movies that have come out this year.

Back to the point: later in that same interview, she did say that a 'Buffy' movie based on the series would have little point, as she felt it would be a pointless extension of a single episode. In essence, they're "already making movies every week".

Paul Reubens' death scene did rock my world, though. :)

I may have overstated my original point. The worst movie EVER, as we all know, is either Batman & Robin or Nicholas & Alexandra, a horribly dull 1971 film about the fall of the Russian monarchy.

My vote is for "Batman and Robin".


I'm a huge comics fan and that was the biggest,steaming,stinking pile of monkey poop ever put on celluloid.

Hang on now, "Nicholas and Alexandra" had Tom Baker in it, chewing scenery so hard I thought he'd get poisioning from the paint.

Seeing Dr. Who play Rasputin and drink and molest damn near everyone is the high point of the movie. Unfortunately the movie goes on for what feels like a WEEK after he dies.

"Batman and Robin" bites the ass of demon goats. . .I won't defend it.

$56 million in its opening weekend is a new June opening record. Apparently a lot of people thought it looked better than I thought it did in the previews.
