Dolittle (3D)

He’s not just a people person.


Dolittle
Yet another take on the Dr Dolittle theme, different to both the Rex Harrison classic original and the Eddie Murphy version. After losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle, famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria’s England, hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company. When the young queen falls gravely ill, a reluctant Dolittle is forced to set sail on an epic adventure to a mythical island in search of a cure, regaining his wit and courage as he crosses old adversaries and discovers wondrous creatures. The doctor is joined on his quest by a young, self-appointed apprentice and a raucous coterie of animal friends, including an anxious gorilla, an enthusiastic but bird-brained duck, a bickering duo of a cynical ostrich and an upbeat polar bear and a headstrong parrot, who serves as his most trusted advisor and confidante. This film is releasing in 2D, 3D, 3D IMAX and 4DX. This is the 2D version.

Tomatometer quote iconDolittle may be enough to entertain very young viewers, but they deserve better than this rote adaptation’s jumbled story and stale humor.

Tara McNamara quote iconNot the king of the jungle, but still cute; some peril/guns.
