DR. DOLITTLE 2

 

 

This movie is cute and silly fun for the younger kids, but didn't come together for me.

It has no new special effects that we haven't already seen before, but does have some laugh-out-loud jokes. (Not nearly as frequently as one would hope.)

The attempts at comedy are far too dependent on bathroom humor, which go over most of the young kids' heads.

Special effects alone don't necessarily make a good movie. It fell short of the mark for me.

With the exception of croc-hunter Steve Irwin during the opening credits, there is hardly a laugh in Dr. Dolittle 2--the first in a summer of talking animal films.

This movie has a hard time rising above its gas-infested swamp of a script. And what is Eddie Murphy doing in a PG film? Well, the Dr. do little!

Instead it's cute animals reciting incredibly lame dialogue.

Oh, when the saints go marching in. Oh, when the saints go marching in. Dear Lord, I want to be in that number. When the saints go marching in.

Dr. Dolittle 2 is a nice, sweet little movie for children who believe that animals are little people in fuzzy suits.

There are a few gas vapor jokes, but I think that most kids up to the age of 9 will enjoy the cute talking critters.
