"Friends don't quit."
It's 3:25 am. I stayed up to rewatch this cinematic masterpiece. But for real this movie is fun and doesn't deserve the hate it gets. Sure there's some parts that are...oof. But it's a fun movie overall. Also I don't get the hate for Scrappy Doo.

He is unstoppable and we must all appreciate and cherish him.
