Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Little more than a typical TV segment writ large for the mutiplexes."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"A sweetly spoofy, thoughtful animated feature, sure to please its preteen target audience."
‑ Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle
"Doug saves a lake from a polluting monster."
‑ Common Sense Media Editors, Common Sense Media
"For even the little ones in the audience, Doug's First Movie will feel long and drawn out."
‑ Cathy Beheler, Palo Alto Weekly
"Wait for the video."
‑ Susan Granger,
"These spin-offs remain animation on the cheap, and none yet -- straitjacketed by fidelity to its respective series -- has attained the density of image and kineticism of design of the art form's true originals."
‑ Wally Hammond, Time Out
"Not inspired children's entertainment, but it has a certain charm."
‑ Anita Gates, New York Times
"It's refreshingly non-violent, unflashy, not smart alecky and mercifully free of insipid songs."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"If you like Doug in 15-minute segments, you'll probably like him all right for 77 minutes."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"Pleasant but hopelessly vanilla."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"The film hasn't much entertainment value for those much over the age of 10. There's not a thing in the world wrong with that."
‑ Jeff Millar, Houston Chronicle
"A new nadir in animated entertainment."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Join me in praying that Doug's 2nd Movie never happens."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"No harm done, really, but nothing of lasting value either."
‑ Margaret A. McGurk, Cincinnati Enquirer
"My advice is to see this film only in case of extenuating circumstances."
‑ Eugene Novikov, Film Blather
