Before their eventual team-up with Scooby and the gang, bright and optimistic Daphne and whip-smart and analytical Velma are both mystery-solving teens who are best friends but have only met online - until now. Daphne has just transferred to Velma's school, Ridge Valley High, an incredible tech-savvy institute with all the latest gadgets provided by the school's benefactor, tech billionaire Tobias Bloom. And while competition is fierce among the students for a coveted internship at Bloom Innovative, Daphne and Velma dig beyond all the gadgets and tech to investigate what is causing some of the brightest students in school to disappear - only to emerge again in a zombie-fied state.

This is a great little movie for any kid who likes technology and a mystery. My 8 year old daughter loved it and wanted to go to the school with the cool gadgets. Please be warned, it has nothing to do with Scooby-Doo, hence the name of the movie. Please do not watch it with the idea of the "Gang" because you will be disappointed. However, if you like cute movies with impressive gadgets and funny one-liners...this is it. Great for girls of any age, but boys might not be so impressed. In any event, we loved it!!!


Good god this was awful to sit through. I had five minutes left of the movie and I turned it off. I felt like I should have set fire to the $13 I paid for this. Watched it barely once and I will never again. Very unfunny movie. Cheap looking movie. Both girls are terrible at acting and Velma is very ugly to look at. AVOID THIS MOVIE!


When my husband picked this movie up for our daughters who are 9 and 10, I hadn't even heard of it. I thought it would be something that they would probably watch, mildly enjoy and forget about. We put it on while we were all working on legos and before I knew it, they had stopped building completely and were watching it without distraction. I laughed so hard at so many parts of this film and so did my girls. It touches on numerous feminist ideas in very subtle ways like the mother being the girl boss and the dad being a stay at home dad, how one of their biggest fears was that there would never be a female president and that there is NO love interest what so ever for either of the girls. It was refreshing, and unexpectedly really funny. The music and wardrobe was great as well. By the end we were hoping that there would be a follow up in the form of a sequel, tv show or web series. We have owned it for 3 days and its been watched 3 times. This isn't meant for teenagers though- so I'm not sure how old the other reviewers were or what they expected but I and my girls were pleasantly surprised.


The word dross was invented with movies like this in mind. It was a good idea in practice and with the Scooby Doo link, should have been an easy solid 5 star movie, or at least be entertaining to children. Unfortunately it was neither of those 2 things. My children, ranging in age between 3 and 14, disliked this movie more than me and wandered off thoroughly bored not even half way through. And thats the main problem with this film, it doesn't seem to know who it's aiming itself at. Too mature for small children and far too boring and uninteresting for teenagers. It starts off irritatingly sugary sweet, like those aweful disney children's entertainment series, where everything's so cutesy and gender/race neutral. Daphne is now Latino at a guess (with a bad ginger wig), her mom's black and her dad's white... Regardless of race though, I found all three characters were poor choices for their roles and were all mildly irritating at best (Welma doesn't fare much better). I originally rated this movie 1 star before I'd finished watching it, but to it's credit the second half was much better than the first, so I upped the rating to reflect this. My advice would be to avoid altogether or just skip the first half, even then your children wont find it very interesting still, this film adds nothing to the Scooby Doo universe, infact it probably lowered it's stock considerably. A chance sadly missed.
