What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Daphne & Velma is a live-action movie that shows how the two female members of Mystery, Inc. (the organization at the center of the Scooby-Doo franchise) met and became friends. Velma, a brainiac who always tries to prove that every paranormal experience can be explained by science, is a high schooler who doesn't quite fit in. Daphne is a child of global-hopping parents who's never been able to settle in one place. This movie recounts their initial "investigation" into a strange occurrence at their high school during their first days together. Cartoon action includes some peril (i.e., cackling robot spiders who attack with lasers, characters held hostage, falls, chases, a scary secret passage), enhanced by eerie music, spooky sound effects, and shadowy ghost-like figures. It's all comic in tone, and no one is injured or killed. Adult characters are either exaggeratedly overprotective or clueless. Racial diversity is played throughout. It's OK for kids who aren't bothered by pretend violence.
