After losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle, famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria's England, hides behind the walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company. But when the young queen falls gravely ill, a reluctant Dolittle is forced to set sail on an epic adventure to a mythical island in search of a cure. The doctor is joined on his quest by a young, self-appointed apprentice and a raucous coterie of animal friends.

Well, rather than listening to CNN all day and getting depressed from the news here's a change. It definitely took your mind off of what is outside the door. Worth the time to pretend and imagine well, even if it's only for a moment of your time. Relax, laugh, and enjoy!

I went into this movie knowing it wasn't going to be a blockbuster. But I guess my expectations were still a bit high.
I spent the whole movie trying to understand Downey's accent.

The effects were fun and the story was okay. But there wasn't a lot of adult bits in it to keep me entertained. It was one of the most child like live action feature films that I've seen in a long time.

Your kids will definitely enjoy it.

Campy and silly, with lots of hamming it up by the performers. Not great, but also not the terrrible movie so many reviewers claimed.

I respect that it is a bit more closely related to the original novels, but this movie is just kind of boring. Robert Downey Jr. is good casting on paper but I wasn't all that impressed?

This movie was cute, but a little over the top with the "silly" jokes. It was nice to see Robert Downey Jr. in something else where he's not always snarky. I feel like this was more of a "made for tv" kind of movie. Still, if you're bored and just wanting to watch a different version of this movie, you should give it a try.

Robert Downey Jr is quirky and full of fun as always. Dolittle was a fantastic family movie which will make you laugh and smile. A lovely family night in movie with a stellar cast.
