It's easily the worst kid's movie since Spy Kids 3-D, a confusing blur of a magical quest based on an ancient British stop-motion animation TV show.

The animation has the low-budget CGI look of meticulous textures but movement as jerky and unpersuasive as Davey and Goliath.

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

Seldom have I heard such lame jokes and pseudo-savvy dialogue.

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.

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.

Poor visuals, a terrible story, and only fart jokes to entertain the kiddies.

In attempting to turn a tiny Anglo-Franco amusement into a full-blown Yankee extravaganza, The Weinstein Co. has managed to choke every last bit of charm out of the characters and their setting, no mean feat for a show this enchanting.

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

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.

For all its undeniable promise, this take on The Magic Roundabout is just plain disastrous in its execution.

Shadows on the Wall

It's a shame more effort wasn't made to come up with a storyline as bracingly original and anarchic as the TV series was.

it reminds me more of something you might have seen on H.R. Pufnstuf in the 70s - without all the hallucinogenic drugs

While offering children a valuable lesson about friendship, 'Doogal' will probably be viewed by some adults as an opportunity for a little nap.

Doogal is an exceeding lame animated feature about a bunch of kids trapped on a magical carousel -- but it's adults forced to sit through this slow-moving, G-rated Lord of the Rings knockoff who will be begging for mercy.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

The titular canine hero has all the appeal of a talking bathmat. The animation is ugly, and the American re-write -- which, in typical Hollywood fashion, confuses topicality with humor, as if simply namedropping is enough -- adds nothing.

Doogal has a few moments of wit, but they're largely lost thanks to inconsistent direction and an uncertainty about who or what the movie is for.

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