A childhood favourite of mine

Doctor Dolittle is a 1998 family comedy starring Eddie Murphy who plays the title charcther who isn't like many doctors as he can talk to them since they can talk to him. He later befriends a dog named Lucky and his wife Lisa(Kirsten Wilson) thinks his nuts due to his gift with talking to animals at a young age.

Will anyone believe him?

Overall I always enjoyed this film having been a fan of Eddie Murphy since I was a kid and no matter what film he is in he always cracks me up Like Jim Carrey and the late Robin Williams. If Like me you love animals then this is for you.

Very underrated film.

Slightly above mediocre family flick with Eddie Murphy and talking critters

Released in 1998 and directed by Betty Thomas, "Dr. Dolittle" is a family comedy starring Eddie Murphy as a doctor in San Francisco who re-encounters a curious talent he had as a child, the ability to understand the speech of animals. Kristen Wilson plays his wife while Oliver Platt and Richard Schiff are on hand as his colleagues. Peter Boyle plays a businessman who wants to buy their practice.

With Eddie Murphy and talking animals, I expected "Dr. Dolittle" to be better than it is. It's okay; there are some fun moments, but it never rises above decent. Kids should like it though.

The film runs 85 minutes and was shot in San Francisco, Busch Gardens and San Bernardino National Forest, California.

GRADE: C+ or B- (5.5/10)

This Film Needs A Script Doctor.

Doctor Dolittle (1998): Dir: Betty Thomas / Cast: Eddie Murphy, Ossie Davis, Oliver Platt, Peter Boyle, Kyla Pratt: Not nearly as good a remake as The Nutty Professor, which also starred Eddie Murphy, but this film does promise Murphy as a doctor who communicates with animals. The whole "Dolittle" bit of the name kind of gives the impression that he is lazy but in this film it is just the formula driven screenwriter. Plot is crammed together with the animals stealing the show. Among them is Lucky the dog who uses the toilet and blows his nose. He is nearly mashed by Murphy's car and becomes one of the family. Director Betty Thomas previously made the far superior Private Parts as well as the about as inferior The Brady Bunch Movie. She never establishes these jokes regarding animals with inhuman tendencies and they greater spiral the film down into the deepest of kitty litter proportions. Murphy seems to be the ideal choice for this role but after the premise is established it is just a one joke charade with Murphy reacting to the chaos. Ossie Davis, Oliver Platt and Peter Boyle are stuck in cardboard supporting roles. Special effects are similar to Babe but unlike that wonderful film Doctor Dolittle doesn't have a story to sell. It is another example of filmmakers cashing in of the success of yesteryear but creating a big budget and over-hyped dog show. Score: 2 / 10
