Disclosure: I was sent a review copy in exchange for an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.



Scooby-Doo's Leading Ladies Star in Their Very Own Live-Action Feature Film



The All-New Original Movie is Available for the First Time
On Digital, Blu-ray™ and DVD!

Uncover the Mystery Today!



I grew up watching and loving Scooby Doo and friends.  Next to Scooby, my next favorite characters were Daphne and Velma. So, when I heard there was a movie coming out all about Daphne and Velma, I couldn't wait to watch it, especially with my girls.  After seeing the movie trailer, I could tell that this would be a great family movie night movie, and that it was! We were laughing all throughout this fun live-action movie.  We learned through the movie how Daphne and Velma met and became just great friends, and how they have to form a friendship and successful team outside the virtual world they are used to interacting in, to help save the town.

In addition to laughs, this movie is full of action and will you cheering on the girls and rooting for "girl power" for a positive outcome.  Do Daphne and Velma save the day, or do they struggle to be "real" friends to help save the day?  We had so much fun watching this movie, and I hope they come out with more live-action movies like this that put a fun new spin on the Scooby Doo and his friends.

With the long weekend coming up, why not pick up this new release, available on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital as of yesterday, to enjoy with your family.  This is one movie the whole family will enjoy, and want to watch time and again.
