Young audiences should be spared its obnoxious droning presence.
April 23, 2009
Too often those behind the slick 3-D animation spectacles aimed at children imbue them with too much adult humor.

June 4, 2008
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 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!"
July 25, 2006
A jumble of bad movie cliches strung together into an overly simplistic tale of a pooch who gets in trouble over candy.

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.

April 14, 2006
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.
March 11, 2006
Doogal is definitely a dog.

A wretched experience from start to finish.

March 4, 2006
Unoriginal and only sometimes cute, DOOGAL is mostly harmless, but dull.
March 1, 2006
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.

February 27, 2006
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.

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.

February 27, 2006
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.
