Film review: Despite its top-line cast, 'Dolittle' does very little
The latest Doctor Dolittle reboot, starring Robert Downey Jr as the vet who can speak to animals, is flat and lazy
Robert Downey Jr leads an ensemble of animated and human characters in this latest reimagining of Hugh Lofting’s classic story of a doctor with the unique ability to talk to animals. Deeply affected by the passing away of his wife, veterinarian John Dolittle has become a recluse. Shut away in his massive estate with a menagerie of animals for company, he shuns human interaction, until the Queen of England commands his presence to help her recover from a near-fatal illness.
