Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed...
Mystery Inc. has left behind many of the innuendos and adult themes that showed up in the first Scooby-Doo movie. But there are still plenty of risky pranks in this film that parents wont want reenacted at home. Using a blowtorch to light some “flatulent” gas and spraying down a room with a hand held fire extinguisher would likely be less entertaining in reality. Some of the foes from the gangs past capersCaptain Cutlers Ghost, Miner 49er and 10,000 Volt Ghostmight also prove to be a little too spooky for the younger crowd.
Stretching out this Saturday morning cartoon premise for a full 90 minutes proves to be the biggest challenge for the script thats padded with a dance scene and a musical cameo by American Idol winner Ruben Studdard. Given the key to solving the mystery, Scooby hesitates to ask, “Should I do it?” Feeling dogged on every side by recycled ghosts, my only thought was “Yes!”
