Doug's 1st Movie | 1999 | G | - 1.3.1

In this animated Disney film based on the popular TV cartoon show, Doug and Skeeter befriend a monster living in Lucky Duck Lake. [1:19]

SEX/NUDITY 1 - We see a boy in his underwear. A boy leans toward a girl and asks for a kiss (it looks like they're about to kiss as the scene ends).

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Men shoot a robot with laser guns and the robot smokes and flails a bit. In two scenes, men with laser guns kick in doors and in another scene they threaten a few people. A monster throws a tree limb past a boy and apparently scratches his arm (we only see the boy's ripped sleeve). Men shoot a net onto a monster, put ropes around its neck and hands and drag it away. In dream sequences, we see a monster's foot stomp on a boy, a monster swallow a boy (we see the boy fall into its stomach and get covered with goo) and a monster spit up the goo-covered boy; we also see a boy shoot a laser beam at a monster, causing it to fall down. A car nearly hits two boys and a girl pushes a boy off a dock into shallow water. A woman smacks someone's hand with a ladle. A boy runs into a wall several times, falls down a flight of steps and then is hit with a garbage can; he's not hurt, and the scene is comical rather than violent. A man verbally threatens two boys.

LANGUAGE 1 - Many instances of mild name-calling and insults.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Monsters, pollution, businessmen, understanding and accepting different people, relationships, journalism, lying.

MESSAGE - Do what you think is right, even if it makes you look foolish to others.

(Note: In a cartoon shown before the movie, a bomb explodes in a purse -- a duck's feathers get a little ruffled, but no one is hurt.)

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
