Plot Summary

Successful physician and devoted family man John Dolittle (Eddie Murphy) seems to have the world by the tail, until a long-suppressed talent he possessed as a child - the ability to communicate with animals - is suddenly reawakened with a vengeance! Now every creature within squawking distance wants the good doctor's advice, unleashing an outrageous chain of events that turn his world upside down! Featuring an all-star menagerie of voice talent (including Chris Rock, John Leguizamo, Norm MacDonald, Albert Brooks, Gary Shandling and Ellen DeGeneres), this wild and woolly free-for-all is your prescription for hilarious hijinks and mischievous fun!

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Slim on story and rife with scatological jokes, the film may strike a chord with pre-teens but misses for an older crowd despite some nifty effects and broad humor. – Leonard Klady, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: The old actor's rule -- never work with animals or kids -- has never seemed more apt. The animals steal the scene from Murphy every time, and he gives it up gladly. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Apr 9, 2010

Rotten: Dr. Dolittle runs out of ideas long before the projector runs out of film. – Bob Graham, San Francisco Chronicle, Apr 9, 2010

Fresh: The movie will not harm anyone, and in the audience I saw it with, lots of parents and kids seemed to be laughing together. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010
