Scooby Doo movie information
Scooby-Doo movie 2002
Mystery, Inc. - Freddie, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo - are bigtime celebrities in their hometown of Coolsville, after solving the case on Spooky Island (The first Scooby-Doo film). On this particular night, the gang are the guests of honor at the Coolsonian Criminology Museum, which features a new exhibit displaying monster costumes from cases past solved by the "meddling kids". Accompanied by newsreporter Heather-Jasper Howe (Alicia Silverstone), her cameraman Ned and other members of the press, the gang introduce some of their best known enemies. Velma appears to have a soft spot for the curator Patrick Wisely (Seth Green), while Shaggy and Scooby are scared of the costumes. However, this night may just be the end of Mystery Inc's career.
As the night progresses, a bolt of lightning causes a blackout and the costume of the Pterodactyl Ghost suddenly springs to life and causes pandemonium inside the museum, Shaggy and Scooby causing further chaos in an attempt to bring the bird down. Then, the bird's master appears, the Evil Masked Figure. He claims that this incident is only the start of Mystery Inc's defeat and he escapes with the Pterodactyl Ghost and a pair of stolen costumes in tow (Black Knight Ghost and the 10,000-Volt Ghost).
The next day, Heather criticizes the gang's actions on television. Shaggy and Scooby blame themselves and decide to help out the gang properly. In the lab, Velma scans a pterodactyl scale she found and concludes it is real! The gang conclude that one of their old foes committed the crime. Eliminating the original Pterodactyl Ghost, Jonathan Jacobo (Tim Blake Nelson), after he died during a prison escape, they decide Jeremiah Wickles (Peter Boyle) is the culprit, mainly because he was the Black Knight, their first case, as well as Jacobo's cellmate.
Daphne fightsArriving at Wickles' ancestor manor, the gang fall into a trap but soon escape to look for clues. Fred, Velma and Daphne find shiny green footprints leading to the library where they find an old book that gives instructions on how to create "carbon-based organic composite predators", or a book on how to make monsters! Shaggy and Scooby discover a clue themselves, an invitation to the Faux Ghost nightclub. However, they also have an unexpected run-in with Wickles' alias: The Black Knight Ghost. Daphne battles the Black Knight (in a Buffy the Vampire Slayer-like fight) until Velma finds the knight's weak point and kicks him "Right in the Round Tables".
Returning to HQ, Velma tests the green footprints and realises that the main ingredient for creating the monsters is a substance named Randomonium. Patrick appears and Velma hides, terrified of being asked out on a date. Daphne helps calm her nerve - by turning her into a "hot babe" wearing spandex. The group head out to the museum. Shaggy and Scooby sneak into the Faux Ghost and find Wickles, who tells them that all the criminals inside the nightclub regret their illegal actions - but still want revenge on Mystery Inc. Scooby gets caught up in the groove and dances, giving away his and Shaggy's identities, so they run out. The rest of the gang go to the museum and discover that all of the costumes have been stolen! Shaggy and Scooby encounter an angry Patrick and they freak each other out.
Scooby and Shaggy follow Wickles to the old mining town where they have a close encounter with one of the one-eyed Skeleton Men and find a secret lab. Fred, Daphne and Velma arrive, depressed by the booing they received at the museum. They find Wickles and try to interrogate him, but soon learn he has nothing to do with the monsters and is only looking to get on with his life. In the lab, Scooby drinks a yellow liquid which he believes to be lemonade. But it is actually a formula which transforms him into a cephalopod like monster. Shaggy attempts to change Scooby back with a blue liquid. He gets some on his hand and drinks it (despite previously telling Scooby not to consume such things). This causes him to sprout bosoms and to develop a feminine body. Meanwhile, Scooby transforms into The Tasmanian Devil. Shaggy and Scooby consume another formula. This time, Shaggy turns into a Bodybuilder. Meanwhile, Scooby transforms into a canine version of Albert Einstein. Scooby mixes up a formula which will change them back, but Shaggy protests, causing an explosion. The explosion attracts the attention of the gang and they are reunited. Scooby turns back into a great dane and Shaggy turns back into a scrawny teenager.
Going through a busted door, the gang discover the Monster Hive, a chamber with a monster-making machine inside. Velma believes Patrick is the culprit, but the others disagree. Shaggy and Scooby get curious and mess with the machines, bringing to life the Zombie, Miner 49er, Captain Cutler and the Tar Monster. Fred seizes the machine's control panel and the gang flee from the mine and Coolsville, the monsters chasing them and taking hold of the city. The gang flees into the swampland to their high school clubhouse, where they reminisce about their younger days. Velma suddenly comes to a conclusion that they can reprogramme the control panel so they can destroy the monsters. Shaggy and Scooby are oblivious to this and are complaining outside on how pathetic they truly are. Captain Cutler appears out of the swamp and the gang evade him by smashing the Mystery Machine into him and sending him into the waters.
The gang escape the Pterodactyl Ghost and the Zombie driving a semi-truck, and arrive at the mine. Fred takes on the Black Knight who rides a ghost horse in a jousting match using a motorcycle and a pipe, but the two fall off their stallions. Daphne tries to fight the electrical 10,000 Volt Ghost who fails. Velma goes off to lure the Skeleton Men while Shaggy and Scooby pick up some courage and head for the Monster Hive with the Miner 49er in pursuit. Fred and Daphne defeat the Black Knight and 10,000 Volt Ghost by sucking all of the electricity into the Black Knight using a pair of jumper cables. Velma falls into a hole and finds a shrine to Jonathan Jacobo. Patrick finds Velma and saves her from falling from a unstable catwalk. The Pterodactyl Ghost captures Patrick, taking him off of the culprit list. Shaggy and Scooby encounter the Cotton Candy Glob but eat him instead of running away. The gang reunite but are one by one captured by the Tar Monster.
When things look hopeless, Scooby grabs a fire extinguisher and freezes the Tar Monster, before making his way past the surviving monsters and activating the machine, reversing all of the effects and changing all of the monsters back to costumes. The Evil Masked Figure surrenders and is unmasked before the public - as Heather-Jasper Howe, who is then unmasked as - Jonathan Jacobo. Jacobo did not die but survived, swearing revenge upon the gang. He found the book and made all he needed to create the monsters. He covered up his tracks by using the Howe persona in order to damage the Mystery Inc. gang's reputation and have the press turn against them and framing Wickles by putting the Black Knight and the book in his house. Jacobo and Howe's cameraman Ned are arrested, and the gang celebrate their victory in the Faux Ghost with American Idol winner, Ruben Studdard and they sing through the credits,then,at the end of the credits Scooby holds up a GBA to the camera and tells a code for the Scooby-Doo 2 GBA video game.Source Wikipedia.
