I thought it was funny that Shaggy kept calling Courage a little pink dude and Eustace an angry old dude and Eustace was calling Shaggy a shaggy haired fella. It added a little humor to the movie.
I think crossing over with Courage was super fun, especially since Courage is as scared of monsters as Shaggy and Scooby. They fit well together! Also, Courage and Eustace sharing their love of food brought them together, even if just for a minute. Courage even had his own snacks!
Greedy old Eustace was in heaven when the people brought him all the gold and jewels, but that rap he did was a little over the top. I mean, I was laughing so hard because it was just ridiculous to see this old man, shirtless, wearing what looked like an adult diaper under his pants with this huge chain around his neck rapping.
The one thing I didn't like about the movie was the way they treated the Mystery Machine. At least it didn't blow up, they had Eustace's truck do that, but the side swiping of the Mystery Machine was just not a fun scene to watch. It made me cringe. Though the damage was minimal when you think about it. The Mystery Machine rolls over several times, I mean it literally should not have been drivable after they were done with it, but the Mystery Machine came out looking like nothing ever happened. (For more weird things in Scooby-Doo, including the Mystery Machine being destroyed and good as new 5 minutes later, check out our latest Scooby Panel.)
The Dark Matter Meteor, also known as the disco ball as I had deemed it while watching the movie, ended up transforming everyone into different shapes. While it was a fun scene, they could have done better transformations.
Overall, I enjoyed the movie. I even called the villains at the end in a conversation I had with someone. It just made sense, knowing that the movie was taking place in Nowhere. That dance scene was a fun way to end the movie too.
