Get out your pooper-scoopers. Doo happens June 14th, warn the ads for Scooby-Doo. And they say there's no truth in Hollywood. The $90 million film version of the Hanna-Barbera cartoon TV series is allegedly live action. But that blond wig on star Freddie Prinze Jr. is morgue-ready. And don't buy the claim that Scooby, the cowardly Great Dane, is the only thing computer-generated. Nothing human could have produced a script with emotions as plastic as co-star Sarah Michelle Gellar's go-go boots. As Shaggy (Matthew Lillard) puts it to Scoob: "Zoinks!" Since there's more than one dog in the summer kennel, let's scan the latest releases for the uberstink of Doo.

    The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
