|Scooby-Doo-Doo. Not since "The Flintstones: Viva Rock Vegas" has a live-action film adaptation of an animated TV series been so greatly anticipated as a sure pile of dung. "Scooby-Doo" is idiocy based on the clumsy Hanna-Barbera kiddie cartoon about teenage morons Fred, Daphne, Shaggy and Velma and a cowardly talking dog named Scooby-Doo, all of whom somehow solve mysteries. The movie seems child-skewed, with infantile humor and the unappealing, lamely designed and executed, computer-generated title canine. Yet there's more than a hint of sexy in the heroines, particularly mini-skirted damsel-in-distress Daphne (Sarah Michelle Gellar of TV's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"). Even brainy Velma (Linda Cardellini) ends up in a low-cut sweater. Fred (Freddie Prinze Jr.) is a square-jawed zero, but hippie bonehead Shaggy (Matthew Lillard) inspires non-G-rated stoner references. Woeful note: Great Brit comic Rowan Atkinson is wasted in a role that adds nothing to the film. Should you see it? Scooby-Don't.|
