What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this film features an evil wizard (a jack-in-the-box without his box, bouncing on a spring), who wants to freeze the world and rule it, by means of gathering together three magical diamonds. Characters are afraid, fall off cliffs, crash vehicles, fight skeletons with glowing eyes, face scary situations (and say they have "pooped" or "slimed" themselves when frightened), and occasionally carp at one another. Crude humor includes farting and slapstick violence.
- Families can talk about the primary lesson learned by Doogal, that friendships are more important than his desire for candy. How do his friends, who help him save the world and Florence, show their loyalty to him even when he seems lazy or selfish?
