Just a note to those who were uncomfortable watching this film with their children; movies have ratings for a reason. This movie is rated PG-13, which tells you up front that it has content that is considered inappropriate for young children. In this case, it is crude humor.
What I don't understand is why they made a movie with a story line aimed at a young audience, and then inclduded content that earned it a rating that recommends that a young audience shouldn't see it.

This is a movie I bought first, primarily for the kids because of the reviews. No one ever asked to watch it a second time. I say this because one of my kids was watching the Lion King last night, for the umpteenth time. So yes, I agree that eddie murphy impressed me again with his talent... but it just didn't grab my kids, 3 boys and 2 girls. I had to give it a good rating of 3 rather than a 2 to encourage the making of good movies.

I don't care what any of those fops say about not buying this video. It's hilarious, my daughter just loves it and when she calls for me, Momma, I say, I'm not your Momma! - ala the scene where the egg hatches - at which she falls down in uproarious laughter and has become a big family joke. I think Eddy Murphy is hilarious and I couldn't live without that Guinea pig! Indelible! Shut the hell up about Rex Harrison. No one cares. My life is too serious all day to not be able to chill out with a fun movie once in a while.

We laughed so hard watching this movie! It was fun-filled and fresh. Definitely a movie to watch with your kids...but get some tasty, buttered popcorn and icy-cold soda for refreshments BEFORE the movie starts so you don't miss a thing! It's great to watch Eddie Murphy in this entertaining role. This movie has a nice family appeal to it. We highly recommend it!

Based on the children's story and brought to life in a new way, Eddie Murphy in DR DOOLITTLE is a cute kids comedy and a pretty good comedy in general. And there's a lot of funny parts with the animals in this movie and it's very touching as well.
As a kid, John Doolittle (Murphy) didn't have too many friends but the friends he did have were special to hum because he was the only who could understand him. Why? Because they were animals. He could talk to and understand animals. But after he got in trouble for talking with the family dog, he was forced to stop talking to animals. Now as an adult, after an accident where he hit a dog, he realizes that he heard the dog talk to him. Now he realizes that he still has his gift and now it's a question if he can keep his sanity and if he can do the right thing and help everyone that needs him, including the animals.
This one is really cute and kids will love this one. Plus it's pretty funny as well. And of course there are plenty of other celebrities pitching their voices for this movie like Pee Wee Herman, Chris Rock, Norm McDonald, Jenna Elfman, John Leguizamo and Albert Brooks to name a few. The soundtrack to this movie is also very good as well with Aaliyah, All Saints, Wu-Tang's Raekwon and more.
The kids will love this one and this a good comedy for the entire family. It's very clean and there isn't any swearing or any adult themes at all. It's a very fun movie. Check out DR DOOLITTLE and don't forget to check out DR DOOLITTLE 2. Enjoy this family comedy!

Many people might say of Dr. Doolittle that it was a perfect family movie. I completely disagree. I found few jokes in the movie that were not rectal jokes, and even less that were funny. I do like Eddie Murphy and believe he has done some truly great work, but this is not him at his best. There is absolutely no creativity with the humor and there is so much that could have been done with this movie. I must say that the saddest part of this movie is that it had to be rated PG-13. Why couldn't they have just kept it clean like the good old movie classic with Rex Harrison?

I'm a huge fan of watching a lot of Eddie Murphy films. I've watched them ever since I was old enough to watch television. Dr. Dolittle is the FUNNIEST movie of his I believe I have ever seen! If you like to laugh you'll love this movie!
