The children (7. 6 and 5) said it was relatively boring. Not only was there a reliance on movie cliches (I think to keep the adults happy) they also had to tell you the title of the movie that they were stealing it from. William H. Macy was The children (7. 6 and 5) said it was relatively boring.

Macy was bearable but everyone else looked like they were there to collect a paycheck. Sad, because the animation was delightful. Expand

it is a cute concept but I did not really enjoy this movie - appreciated the technical aspect of the animation but plot was mediocre.

I notice the voices then were UK-based; for the US release you have US-based voices. Can you imagine dubbing a John Wayne film with the voice of David Niven for release in the UK? The original "Magic Roundabout" wasn't based on a "1960s British children's show" as LA Weekly suggest - it was made for a French audience by Serge Danot with one storyline but redubbed (with a different storyline) for a UK audience by Eric Thompson. This film, released last year, was but a pale imitation of the "real thing". The TRUE Magic Roundabout "feature-length" film was "Dougal and the Blue Cat", released in the late 1960s. Even the British voices would agree, I am sure, that their efforts were not a patch on the original TV short films which they would have seen in their youth. And why oh why is Dougal renamed Doogal? Where will it end? A film about George Brush and the White Hoose loose with a moose? Take the kids - but tell them "it's not like what mummy and daddy used to watch..." It's what I did! Expand

I don't know why they had to mess with it. It was an English film not French. In English it was on par with films such as Chicken Little, it actually had very good voice acting and quite a witty script. Just sounds like it got butchered I don't know why they had to mess with it. It was an English film not French.

The slapdash dialogue and smug vocal talent -- even the presence of the much-loved host of "The Daily Show" is wearying -- detract from the visual appeal of the most energetic sequences (like a raucous train chase) and what's left of Danot's designs.
