Highly suspicious of any story relying on the idea of a hapless animal cast forced into the guise of human beings, I'd made it very public that I would not be going to see Dr Dolittle. However, after a TV trailer caught me unaware one night, rendering me as helpless and gasping for air as a three year old sobbing with laughter, we took off to the cinema for the full, uplifting, ridiculous experience.
Starting where the Dr Dolittle 1 left off (but you don't need to have seen the first film to enjoy this one) the story is that of a jaded show bear forced out of his comfy showbiz life to save the future of an endangered variation of his own species - he's the only one left, and the other's a female: cue, one sparkling, silly tableau after another as the bear swaps limos and 5-star treatment for chest-beating and mud. Parallel to this is a bubbling tale of adolescent strife in the Dolittle household, a move to the country, stitched together with the thread of a crackling script, hair-curling jokes and the inevitable animal-human common denominator of the digestive system - or more specifically, its waste disposal system!
With digital tools and animatronics currently at breathtaking levels of technical skill, I had hardly expected the animals in this film to be anything less than impressive. However, I hadn't counted on such an expert and seamless blending of real creatures, sensitive voice-overs and pixels. Oh, and the humans weren't bad too - Eddie Murphy proving why there was so much fuss about him to begin with, supported by a family delivering just the right amount of 'ham'.
So suspend your disbelief for an hour or two, forget what your last birthday told you - hey, you're five again, right? - and laugh like a drain at this clever, careful, joyous, ridiculous story told with a tongue planted firmly in cheek.
Who knows - I might even get Beatrix Potter off that dusty shelf ...

As an Eddie murphy fan I'm not biased because I live him in movies but not on the red carpet (funny huh)!
Eddie (in his movies) alwaysakes me laugh and the kids are familiar with him as an actor.
Doctor dolittle is a great family movie that helps to ease away, those every day struggles and pressures and also helps families, reflect on how their own relationships with each other, are doing.
Great movies and would make a lovely gift to friends and family xx

I first saw this film in the cinema, and I loved it...we all know most sequels suck, but this one deserves an oscar. The film is amazing, the storyline is played out well by the cast, and you never get tired of the endless laughs. It's a film for all the family, and just like me, you'll enjoy watching it over and over again.

Eddie Murphy shows why he really is the best at what he does. His versatility and individuality is clearly shown in this film.
It makes a change to see him in a different role this time playing the character of a slightly older man, a mature family man.
Great entertainment, lots of laughs, very enjoyable.

Dr. Dolittle plays cupid to bumbling circus bear Archie, as he's so smitten by a Pacific Western bear female, Ava.

Dr. Dolittle must help a group of creatures to save their forest. But with the aid of his animal friends, Dr. Dolittle must teach Archie the ways of true romance in time to save his species and his home before their habit is destroyed.

So John holds a meeting for every animal in the forest to not give up without a fight, no matter what....

So Murphy is back in the inevitable sequel, and to be honest, this is the poorest sequel Murphy has been in, and i'm counting Shrek the Third, and BHC2.

It's not his fault though, it's the poor script, story and execution of the lame jokes and animal script. Murphy shows his funny side in the first ten minutes when he is having a heated debate with his daughter, but after that, it's downhill all the way.

The trouble with these types of sequels is that they just want to make a quick buck, so use the old family trip and place in peril schtick that can be found in hundreds of poor sequels.

The first movie was amiable enough, but even my daughter became intolerable of this.

a useless dud, by all accounts, and Murphy should have smacked is daughters boyfriend right in the face, he made the film that little bit more horrid....

This is a mildly entertaining film that is fun for the whole family. It features Eddie Murphy as Dr. Dolittle, reprising his original role. This time Dr. Doolittle displays an interest in environmental issues, as he tries to save the forest by playing matchmaker between Ava, a bear in the wild, and Archie, a circus bear who has gotten soft and is trying to get used to living in the wild. Ultimately, Dr. Dolittle is victorious over the corporate expansionists who sought to decimate the forest.
There are some very amusing moments in the film with the animals. There are also some funny moments as Dr. Dolittle tries to cope with his sixteen year old daughter just being a teenager. Much to his delight and surprise, however, it turns out that she appears to have inherited his unique ability to communicate with animals.
