A delight for very young children and any parent who'll get the Attorney General joke of "Geneva Convention? I don't care if it's a Star Trek convention!"

[A] surprisingly successful feature-film update.

In short, Doogal (The Magic Roundabout) is an enjoyable family film that will delight young audiences and is liable to send nostalgic 30-somethings on a (sadly, futile) quest to find the original series on DVD.

A sheer waste of priceless talent.

Too often those behind the slick 3-D animation spectacles aimed at children imbue them with too much adult humor.

The slapdash dialogue and smug vocal talent detract from the visual appeal of the most energetic sequences (like a raucous train chase) and what's left of Danot's designs.

A jumble of bad movie cliches strung together into an overly simplistic tale of a pooch who gets in trouble over candy.

Sacramento News & Review

For U.S. audiences the voices have been dubbed by the likes of Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Stewart, Chevy Chase and Jimmy Fallon, who add nothing; in fact, the movie drags them down with it.

I can only assume that half the movie got lost in translation, and that's how we ended up with the bald mess we have today.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

The characters (a snail, a cow, a rock-n-roll rabbit, a train, a wooden soldier) and voice actors (Whoopi Goldberg, Judi Dench, Chevy Chase) seem chosen at random...

The laziest, most disheartening kind of animated children's film.

Unoriginal and only sometimes cute, DOOGAL is mostly harmless, but dull.

This isn't dumbing-down. This is a full-scale lobotomy.

Where is it written that 4-year-olds don't deserve a good story, decent characters, and a modicum of coherence?

Hungering for more references to the 'Wassup' commercials, Dr. Phil, 'Bling Bling,' The Lord Of The Rings, MC Hammer, or The Matrix? Don't worry, Doogal contains nods to all of these.

Doogal tries to be part of the hip CGI-animated club, with all the pop-culture references and feel-good messages. But unfortunately, it fails on all levels.

It's a movie that scrounges so desperately for laughs, it features both a flatulent moose and a flatulent train.
