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!

Metacritic Score

  • 60

    The New York Times

    There is the language to consider, but despite the film's slow start, small children should take to the idea of communicating with animals.

  • 50

    Variety

    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.

  • 30

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    A complete waste of time and potential.
