In the Enchanted Village, The Magic Roundabout lies in ruin, encased in ice. It is the work of the chillingly evil sorcerer Zeebad, whose dastardly mission is to enslave the earth and freeze it over forever. Ranged against the wicked magician are four of the unlikeliest heroes ever gathered together in an all-action adventure - Brian (a lovesick snail), Ermintrude (an opera-singing cow), Dylan (a spaced-out rabbit), and Dougal (a sugar-loving dog).

The Magic Roundabout is a British television series adapted into a movie. There are three versions for the UK, France and the USA, and this one is the US version. I've seen both the UK and the US versions, and the US version is the better of the two, largely due to the narration of Dame Judi Dench which is not in my copy of the UK version. The UK version also uses different actors for some of the characters. (Most notably Robbie Williams and Bill Nighy)

The story is very simple, back to the old basics of good versus evil. Shaggy dog Doogal (Daniel Tay) accidentally releases bad wizard ZeeBad (Jon Stewart) from his prison inside the Magic Roundabout, causing a chain reaction that traps his owner Florence (Kylie Minogue) and her friends inside the iced over roundabout. Doogal and his friends call on good wizard Zebedee (Sir Ian McKellen), who sends them on a quest to recover three magical diamonds and replace them in the roundabout. If however ZeeBad gets his hands on the diamonds he will have the power to freeze the sun triggering an eternal ice age.

The intrepid adventurers are Doogal, Ermintrude the opera singing cow (Whoopi Goldberg), Brian the brave snail who's in love with Ermintrude (William H. Macy), Dylan the tripped out rabbit (Jimmy Fallon) and Train the train with tunnel vision (Chevy Chase). ZeeBad enlists Soldier Sam (Bill Hader) formerly of the roundabout to be his accomplice, and along the way they meet a helpful but flatulent Moose (Kevin Smith).

With this kind of star power Doogal should have been a great movie, but somewhere along the way it changed from a children's story to an action movie spoof, thereby effectively losing both intended audiences. It has a few laughs, some catchy music and you'll have fun picking out the pop culture and movie references, but that's about it. Rent it for the star power, but don't expect too much.

I've often found that young children go into animated movies with the same mindset: they'll love it even before the lights in the theater go dim. And what's not to love? Everything is bright, wacky, and fun, no one gets killed, and a happy ending is virtually guaranteed. Of course, adults have a different set of standards for the films they'd prefer to see. Sure, a family film is okay; at least then there's something for everyone. But if they're forced to sit through a cartoon made entirely for young children, then there's a lot to be desired. "Doogal" is definitely a children's film, and for them, I would recommend it. But for adults, even those who have young children ... well, it may be something you'll want to pass on.

A completely computer generated adventure, "Doogal" has everything a child would love: lots of vivid colors, talking animals, talking toys, juvenile comedy, and harmless dialogue. Of course, the visuals will probably distract them from the basic good vs. evil storyline. Then again, they may not; it's a genre that's been utilized in countless numbers of cartoons, most of which they've seen on more than a couple of occasions (and for that we can thank the folks at Disney). It's a genre that also has the ability to close cultural gaps. The film itself is proof of that; it was originally produced in France, only to later be re-dubbed by English speaking actors. The script was also completely rewritten by American born Butch Hartman, the creator of Nickeloden's "Fairly Odd Parents."

Nothing was complex or detailed as far as the plot is concerned, and the characters were appropriately made one-dimensional (a plus, considering the average child's attention span).

For all the people who enjoyed classic animated films like Beauty and the Beast or Peter Pan or Aladdin, be prepared to throw up on your television and gouge out your eyes. Doogal is so unimaginably bad, that it's a sin to God. The movie starts off with a moustached man named Zebedee who can shoot fireballs from his moustache and is fighting a man named Zeebad who can shoot iceballs from his moustache. The good guy, Zebedee, wins and then cuts to a scene where Doogal, the main character, wants some candy. Everyone else in Doogal's town is at a concert where a cow, Ermintrude, is singing. Only a snail, who probably wants the cow in bed with him, likes the music. Whene Doogal tries to get away from the concert he gets a lollypop but accidentily releases Zeebad from his prison. Zeebad was actually locked up in a ten thousand year old caresel, and, oh, did I mention that this caresel was magical? Somehow, Doogals owner gets locked up in the caresel Then out of nowhere, everyone chants Zebedee three times and the mosetache man who shoots fireballs from his mousache appears and tells everyone that they must go on a magical quest to get three crystals and save humanity. Then Zebedee takes out a magic box with a button on it and presses it. Then a magic train on crack comes out and takes them to find the three crystals. The movie then cuts to Zeebad where a moose farts a few times. Later in the movie the snail is almost killed by icicles that fall down only to say, "I slimed myself." Not only that, what is up with the pot smoking bunny? In one of the final scenes of the movie, the bunny says "I pooped myself!" If that's all the movie writers could think of when making this movie, they were on crack. The bottom line is that even a five year old retard on pot wouldn't like this film!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This movie should be buried in a landpile and burned to hell!!! I could give this movie lower than one star it would be negative 999999999999999 stars out of five stars.
