YMMV / Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The Cotton Candy Glob scene probably would've lasted longer if that particular monster didn't meet Shaggy and Scooby.
  • Captain Obvious Reveal: Alicia Silverstone's character Heather Jasper-Howe being the Big Bad. You have to admit, a famous celebrity playing a supporting character in a Scooby-Doo movie would definitely tip a few people off.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • The Pterodactyl Ghost got a lot of popularity for being a genuinely cool villain.
    • The 10,000 Volt Ghost had less than 60 seconds of screen time, but a lot of viewers found him to be rather impressive.
  • Evil Is Cool: A lot of the classic Scooby-Doo monsters thanks to undergoing Adaptational Badass changes.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • The cast for the Scooby Gang would go on to mock their roles in Robot Chicken along with Seth Green.
    • Matthew Lillard would eventually return to his role as Shaggy in future Scooby-Doo stories.
  • Memetic Badass: Hilariously, Scooby-Doo turns into one thanks to his bizarre action scene.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The Tar Monster nearly drowning the gang in his tar.
  • One-Scene Wonder: The Cotton Candy Glob. He's not a villain from any Scooby-Doo cartoon in the past, but nobody could ignore his single scene.
  • So Bad, It's Good: While the film isn't exactly Oscar bait, a lot of people enjoyed some of the genuinely good attempts at praising the Scooby-Doo lore and capturing some qualities from the classic cartoon.
  • Squick:
    • Scooby-Doo flirting with a human woman while disguised as a normal man.
    • Shaggy transforming into a woman.
    • Heather Jasper-Howe's Unsettling Gender Reveal.
  • Surprisingly Improved Sequel: For those who hated the first movie for not following the cartoon close enough, this sequel rectifies this.
    • Critics didn't seem to think the same, however, as this movie received even worse critical reception than its predecessor.
  • Took the Bad Film Seriously:
    • Matthew Lillard seems to be the only one trying to convince the viewers that he's Shaggy.
    • The costume/prop department also did a fantastic job recreating the costumes of the monsters from several incarnations of the show, even if the monsters mainly show up as background elements.
  • What an Idiot:
    • Great idea, Daphne. Try to beat a ghost made of living electricity by kicking it. Obviously didn't take 6th grade science.
    • Shaggy and Scooby accidentally create more monsters while randomly screwing around with a machine they nothing about.
