Verdict: Fun Filled Family Adventure

 

Story: We only watch these films to see where the gang end up, as they always end up in a position where there is a mystery to solve. Putting the gang on a mystery cruise only for them to ruin the trip for everyone before the real mystery begins. The case is always larger than the TV series mysteries and usually has a few more twists and turns. It really does what it needs to do and will keep the fans entertained. (7/10)

Verdict: Entertaining crossover

Story: It is hard not to love this as I am a huge fan of Scooby Doo and Wrestling so the mix works well for me. The Scooby investigation is like always throwing up a number of suspects that you have to figure out the truth along with the gang. The WWE superstars join the investigations to good effect adding a few laughs. (8/10)
