John Doolittle (Murphy) now a world renowned medical doctor for both humans and animals is called to action because an endangered species of bears is becoming more at risk. It's up to Dr Doolittle to find a perfect mating pair and get them to mate. He has one problem though, the male bear that he finds is Archie (Steve Zahn) and he's been in captivity all his life and doesn't know anything about living in the wild. It's up to Dr Doolittle and Lucky (Norm McDonald) to teach Archie the ropes so that he can become a wild bear and mate with a female.
I thought that this one had it's share of laughs. The little iguana is really funny and Archie the bear is pretty funny too. Plus the rest of the animals in the forest are pretty funny. My only problem is that as usual, a ferret is portraying a weasel. Although ferrets are very closely related to them, It was a bit silly on why they didn't just get a weasel. And a cameo by the Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin doesn't hurt.
This is another great family comedy that kids will love not only for the animals but because it has a lot of child related comedy and adults will laugh at this one too. Check out DR DOOLITTLE 2 and don't forget to get DR DOOLITTLE!
What also helps is the voices used for the newer characters. Lisa Kudrow (horrible in "Friends") is perfect as the female bear, and Steve Zahn (terrific in "Joy Ride") is almost the scene-stealer in this movie with laugh-out-funny jokes circus bear, and the forest characters are funny too.
This is a perfect family movie, without the vulgarity and less crude humor than the 1998 "Dr. Dolittle." Rated PG for language and some crude humor.
There are some very amusing moments 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. Still, this film is simply not as good as the prequel.
This DVD provides picure perfect visuals, as well as excellent sound. The disc also has some nice extra features, such as a kid's guide to grizzlies and the director's commentary. This is a value packed DVD.
Anyway, the story is pretty cute so the film was definitely enjoyable. What made the movie really fun, of course, were the talking animals! How can you go wrong with talking animals?! Steve Zahn voices the totally funny (and goofy) Archie, the tame dancing bear, while Lisa Kudrow voices Eva, the female bear. There were lots of other talking animals (of course) but I'm not sure about did the voices. I think Arnold Schwarzenegger was actually the voice of the Alpha Wolf, Joey Lauren Adams was the cute little Squirrel, and Andy Dick was the Weasel, but that's all I got.
Hmmm. I don't really have much more to say about the movie. Eddie Murphy was hilarious as usual, what more can I say? I love Eddie! My only complaint: There was a little potty humor (which I don't much like) but not too much to disgust me...it was ok.
Recommendation: "Dr. Dolittle 2" is a cute movie with funny talking animals and stars the side-splitting Eddie Murphy. Unlike most movies of this caliber (talking animals and such) the plot was very interesting and very believable-- assuming you believe the whole understanding animals thing. Let the kids see this one, it's got a great environmentalist message (save our forests!) and it's very funny.
I also like the general theme which is to protect animals because animals have feelings too. It really make you think each time a forest get destroy what happens to the poor animals. I think it is a good lesson for children to learn. To take care of the animals and the earth. I believe this film is great for the whole family and should be a family favorite at any home.
