Doug Funnie and his friends from Bluffington make the leap from TV to the big screen in the animated comedy Doug's 1st Movie, based on the long-running children's series. Doug (voiced by Thomas McHugh) is a good-natured 12-year-old who is chronically infatuated with his classmate Patti Mayonnaise (voiced by Constance Shulman). Doug's best friend Skeeter (voiced by Fred Newman) is convinced there's a monster in Bluffington's Lucky Duck Lake. Surprisingly enough, it turns out Skeeter is right --

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
These spin-offs remain animation on the cheap, and none yet -- straitjacketed by fidelity to its respective series -- has attained the density of image and kineticism of design of the art form's true originals.
The film hasn't much entertainment value for those much over the age of 10. There's not a thing in the world wrong with that.
A sweetly spoofy, thoughtful animated feature, sure to please its preteen target audience.
It's refreshingly non-violent, unflashy, not smart alecky and mercifully free of insipid songs.
Join me in praying that Doug's 2nd Movie never happens.
For even the little ones in the audience, Doug's First Movie will feel long and drawn out.
If you like Doug in 15-minute segments, you'll probably like him all right for 77 minutes.
My advice is to see this film only in case of extenuating circumstances.
I fell sound asleep during the proceedings, only to be awakened by the usher for having my feet draped over the seat in front of me.
The "Doug" universe is too sweet and too light to travel into the big, wide, often indelicate territory of feature films.
There's enough quirky charm, light-hearted humor and fresh ideas to appeal to both younger children, eager to grow up, and to older viewers looking back on the dawn of their own awkward adolescence.
A daydreamer who just wants to do the right thing, Doug is a great role model for kids.
