Scooby-Doo And The Gourmet Ghost

Disclosure: I received the item above at no cost to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own. 

What's not to love about the classics? As a Mom, there's nothing I appreciate more than being able to pop in a movie for my kids while I need some quiet to finish up work, or to help pass the time when we're traveling (three cheers for whoever made all dreams come true by installing DVD players in vehicles!) and not have to worry about content. Scooby-Doo has always been a family favorite with exciting mysteries, lovable characters, and not-too-scary villains that we all know from the very beginning aren't real. Our family is also a big fan of Food Network cooking shows and competitions so when we found out that Scooby-Doo and Shaggy teamed up with Bobbly Flay and Giada De Laurentis, I knew this was a movie we had to check out! And what a fun movie it was!


On Scooby-Doo! And the Gourmet Ghost, the Mystery Inc. gang visits Rocky Harbor Culinary Resort, a new cooking retreat located in New Port Cove, Rhode Island. It’s a food lover’s destination, where visitors can learn to prepare meals like master chefs. As Scooby-Doo and his pals arrive to the resort, they are met by Fred’s uncle Bobby, who happens to be the world-famous chef and restauranteur Bobby Flay. 

Rocky Harbor Culinary Resort, which was originally known as Rocky Harbor Inn, has stood empty for over two centuries, ever since its original owner mysteriously disappeared from its premises. The property, which is now owned by Bobby, is rumored to be haunted by the infamous Red Ghost.  Bobby however, thinks the legend of the Red Ghost is just an old myth that’s part of the local lore. He hesitates bringing up the subject for fear it might scare off potential visitors to this new resort, which he dreams will become a world-famous gourmet cooking destination.  

To promote the grand opening of the resort, Bobby organizes a live, national telecast to broadcast from the retreat’s high-tech kitchen. It’s a star-studded evening with some of television’s biggest celebrity chefs, including renowned chefs Giada De Laurentiis and Marcus Samuelsson.

The telecast kicks off with a bang! Bobby’s kitchen buzzes with celebrity chefs whipping up their most scrumptious dishes. That’s until the lights mysteriously flicker off and out of the shadows, Red Ghost appears frightening all the guests, who run out in a panic. Is the legend of Red Ghost real after all? Does this mean the end of Rocky Harbor Culinary Resort or will Scooby-Doo and his pals help save the day? It’s a delicious mystery Scooby-Doo!fans won’t want to miss!


Last week, the kids and I took a trip to see my Granddad and they couldn't wait to use that opportunity to check out this new Scooby-Doo movie. Having the famous voices of Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis made the mystery seem all the more real! The kids were on the edge of their car seats as they watched the movie unfold. Plenty of laughter and even a little bit of history was woven into the storyline. From start to finish, my kids always enjoy trying to solve the mystery for themselves and this movie was no exception, though I think this one had them a little more stumped than they usually did. At the end there were several cries of, "Be quiet! They're about to reveal who it was!" This was a super fun movie that we all enjoyed. It will no doubt become one of the regular classics that we continue to enjoy, even though we know how it ends.
