The anthropomorphism taken to woozying [mature-humour] extremes is weird, fascination with scatology juvenile, and cloying sentimentality overwhelming, this film – despite an okay Murphy-turn – needs to be taken to the vet to get fixed. 2.4/10.

Plot Synopsis: After a fender bender, Dr. John Dolittle (Eddie Murphy) gets back his childhood ability to converse with animals. But the gift turns out to be a mixed blessing when the good doctor finds himself besieged by boozing monkeys, injured owls and depressed lions who need his special assistance. When Dolittle’s strange behavior catches the attention of his wife, Lisa (Kristen Wilson), he winds up in a mental institution. Luckily, he has some animal friends to help him out of his hairy situation.
