Storyline

This is the story of Doogal, an adorable candy-loving mutt who goes on a mission to save the world. Doogal must prevent the evil sorcerer Zeebad from freezing the Earth forever with the power of the three mysterious legendary diamonds. Joining Doogal on his big quest are pals Dylan, a guitar-playing rabbit, Ermintrude, an opera-singing cow, and Brian, a bashful snail. Hopping on a magic train, they travel over ice-capped mountains, navigate fiery pits of lava, and sail across vast oceans on the perilous journey of a lifetime. Along the way, they learn that the most powerful weapon of all is their friendship, which even Zeebad's magic cannot destroy. Written by Anthony Pereyra <hypersonic91@yahoo.com>

Awful for the Whole Family
5 June 2006 | by kfarooqueSee all my reviews

This is a poor choice for kids, poor choice for adults, and poor choice for everyone in between. The movie simply has no appeal to -anyone-. I'd hold Doogal up as a shining example that a string of great voices does not a good animated film make.

For children, I can't see the appeal. The handful of jokes in the movie are mostly pop-culture references--most of which will probably sail right over kids' heads--and overly predictable gags throughout. Even then, the jokes that do remain aren't particularly funny: a skeleton mentions "Pirates of the Caribbean" by name and that's it, or one of the characters quotes a line from Pulp Fiction during what's supposed to be a sad moment.

For adults, I definitely don't see the appeal. Besides the trite jokes, the plot is so predictable and irritating that it grates on one's nerves. There is a -bit- of redemption with being able to hear Ian McKellan and Jon Stewarts' voices, but their lines are so awful that it just begs the question of what possessed them to bother with Doogal in the first place. Beyond that, the characters themselves are very flat, all of which have stock personalities, and there is absolutely zero development of any of them, not even to reflect the 'moral of the story'.

There is no highlight to this movie whatsoever. It's not even worth a Netflix rental. Avoid it altogether and save yourself the 85 minutes. KF
