I think that they really blew an important opportunity when they made the theatrical Scooby-Doo movies. If they hadn’t broken all the Scoobe rules, it could have been great. Because Matthew Lillard was spot-on-perfect as Shaggy.
So there’s a bunch of other Lillard work in my queue, but I’ve never watched it. None of it. No sirree Bob.
Spooner is about a slacker. Is Lillard typecast? I don’t know. Maybe he should be. He does such a wonderful job.
It’s a pleasant movie. Not a lot happens in it. It’s a little episodic in places. It’s fairly gentle, except for the boss’ language.
Lillard is touching.
I wish I had a fort with a corrugated roof.
Why would his mom ever set him up with Linda?
Lillard was spot-on perfect as Spooner. And it’s not an easy role. It’s got this Chaplinesque quality… Especially the closeups.
Except for the boss and the donut, you’ll thank me for this.
