Lego Scooby Doo: Blowout Beach Bash is the second film in the Lego Scooby Doo Direct To DVD movie line. This movie involves the gang attending the Blowout Beach Bingo Bash in order to help Fred and Velma loosen up and have fun. However, the festivities come to an end when two ghost pirates, the ghosts of Captain Bash and Bingo Belle, terrorize the town in order to find the treaure. Now the gang has to investigate what's going on, while also trying to help out Fred and Velma.
This movie contains examples of:
- An Aesop: It's important to relax and have fun, but don't go too far in trying to do so.
- The Bore: A running thread for Fred and Velma is fighting against this. The gang gets to go on vacation? They prefer to plan things out to an absurd degree, while Daphne, Shaggy, and Scooby are go with the flow. They also struggle to interact with fellow teenagers. They're thrilled when they gain some popularity with the locals.
- Casting Gag:
- Denser and Wackier: Much like its predecessor, the humor is more overt due to its status as a Lego Project.
- Dance Party Ending: The film ends with everyone dancing, which is justified given the subject matter.
- Easily Forgiven: Dwight Monkfish holds no ill will toward Mitzi for chewing him out on his greedy and insensitive behavior. He even lampshades it.
- Even Evil Has Standards: While Rob and Laura Holdout dressed up as ghost pirates to find the treasure, they were disgusted when their kids, Chad and Chrissy, also dressed up as ghost pirates and kidnapped Brenda and Tommy just to keep their titles as king and queen of the bash.
- Foil: Brenda and Tommy act as a foil to Chad and Chrissy. While both groups would love to be crowned during the bash, Brenda and Tommy only show little signs of arrogance, being actually friendly with the others once they earn their trust. In contrast, Chad and Chrissy act all high and mighty by belittling everyone and saying that they deserve to be crowned while no one else does. The fact they also masqueraded as ghost pirates just to maintain that title proves it. Chad and Tommy even have the same voice actor, Josh Keaton.
- Hate Sink: Chad and Chrissy Holdout are not given any sympathetic qualities due to their status as king and queen of the bash making them act all high and mighty. The fact that they also masqueraded as ghost pirates and kidnapped Brenda and Tommy just to keep their titles definitely adds to their deliberately unsympathetic nature.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While Dwight Monkfish is a greedy and self absorbed businessman who knows about his status and revels in it, he at least has the courtesy to honor his end of any deal made, and holds a soft spot for his assistant Mitzi. He does become at least a little nicer at the end of the movie when he agrees to sell the boardwalk back.
- Lampshade Hanging: During a musical number, Fred tells the assemble teens to snap their fingers. They try in vain and then say they can't; this is a LEGO movie, so they don't have actual fingers.
- OOC Is Serious Business: After getting in good with some of the locals, Fred and Velma are content to just party instead of solve the mystery.Daphne: Who are you?
- Odd Friendship: Dr. Najib and the cop that arrested him are surprisingly casual with each other. Even when hes being arrested, he doesnt bear any ill will to him.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Mitzi gives a rather scathing, but still well deserved chewing out to Dwight Monkfish when hes actually glad that the ghost pirates helped him get the boardwalk, even if he had no involvement in their scheme.
- The Stoic: The museum guide is so stoic, he reacts to everything with a dull and emotionless expression.
