Never see this movie. Ever!
Inane, cheap, stupid and pointless. How does a film like this even get
made? SOMEone approved the making of this junk. It's beyond words, but
I owe it to anyone who loves cinema to shout this in as clear
vernacular as possible -- this movie stinks! Doogal lies, is lazy, and
this is never resolved. Its stupidity is preceded only by its cheap,
thoughtless stupidity. Never see this film. It's the first movie for
which I've EVER asked my money back. It deserves no explanation or
attention other than to tell you to forget about it. Tell your children
it's evil -- ANYthing. Just don't support this film in any way, shape,
manner or form. You've been (respectfully) warned..

Oh dear God, why?
Where do I begin with this. Where do I begin. Now, keep in mind I was
forced to see this when it came out, since I was 14 at the time with a
3-year-old brother, so why not? I mean, I honestly went into the
theater with optimistic expectations, hoping for an OK-to-decent film.
In fact, I enjoyed the short right before the film a little bit. But
then the film begins. When I heard that some human girl was friends
with some stuffed animals, I expected something along the lines of Toy
Story, you know, they just sit there, then spring to life when no one's
around....then the film shows Doogal sneaking up to his owner....
What happened afterward scarred me for life. This film still brings
back awful memories 2 years after I saw it. I mean, the story's awful.
In a nutshell, there's some carousal ride at the center of town, home
to a bunch of children and stuffed animals, where some evil spring guy
lives, and once Doogal sets him free, the town is freezed up, trapping
the children, including Doogal's owner, and a snail just randomly says
the stuffed animals need 3 crystals to stop him. No explanation of why
the spring guy was put in a carousal, more importantly why that same
carousal is STILL BEING USED when there's some bad guy in there, and
why the 3 crystals are needed, or how they came into existence. What a
bunch of plot holes for a film, and that's in the first 20 minutes.
We're in for a good movie, ladies and gentlemen!
Now, I'll be honest, my memory is a little fuzzy of what happens next,
but I remember a slew of bad pop culture jokes that makes DreamWorks'
references seem restrained in comparison, the group of stuffed animals
nearly getting a crystal until Doogal messes it up, and a bunch of
farting jokes, and when I saw it, the only jokes I heard any laughter
in the theater were from the farting jokes, which is always a bad sign
if that's the only joke type that even gets a chuckle.
Now, some people know that this film was originally called The Magic
Roundabout in the UK, based off of a cartoon series I believe, with,
obviously, British actors, but when it came to the US in its current
title, it was re-dubbed with celebrity actors, like Whoopi Goldberg and
Jon Stewart, and I have to say, Jon Stewart is sadly the best actor
here, with the other actors' talents going to waste here. I know these
aren't the most helpless of actors, but you have to wonder what
inspired them to do something like this.
In conclusion, this is a really bad film from beginning to end, even if
its audience was for kids, that's not a good excuse when you consider
some of Dreamworks and Pixar's works. I know this isn't the worst movie
of all time, but it's the worst I've seen, and I think I would explode
if I saw anything worse than this piece of crap..
