"Are you an Eddie Murphy fan? If the answer is no, than let me ask you why on Earth were you watching the "Doctor Dolittle" series? Maybe it was because of a younger Raven-Symone from Disney Channel's "That's So Raven" and "The Cheetah Girls". Well, here is the downside to "Doctor Dolittle 3," Raven-Symone and, more importantly, Eddie Murphy are gone. So, naturally, the father and sister of Kyla Pratt's character are not shown in this movie. However, the voice of "Lucky" the dog is the same and the mother is the same actress. Now, how about the plot? Any good considering Kyla Pratt now has to "talk" to animals? You better believe it. I think that Kyla did an outstanding, above expectations job. When I put this DVD in and began watching it, I thought I was going to be disappointed (mainly because Eddie Murphy is gone). All I have to say is, the story line is great. You can see that the director made a very good effort with this movie considering (s)he had no Eddie Murphy and no Raven-Symone. The director did not cast someone else to play Mr. Dolittle nor someone else to play Raven-Symone's character. This movie puts the spotlight on Kyla Pratt, so to Ms. Pratt, you rock! Oh, one last thing, in the bonus features, Ms. Pratt tells you about how the "Dr. Dolittle" movies affected her life. You gotta check this movie out, literally! Go ahead and "talk to the animals!""

"So often a series sits on its laurels and continues to crank out episodes and the audience continues to see them because they are not terrible. Then, inevitably, the makers vomit something out with the same name, it's atrocious, and they take the viewers' money on the half effort and that's the end of it. Doctor Dolittle 3 is therefore the end.
There was no point in making this. It lacks eddie murphy (they have him on the phone talking to his wife, but one cannot even hear his voice). Unlike the first two which were at least somewhat funny in a very goofy way (worth watching if you're dying to kill an evening), this was a sleep-fest--literally. About 25 min in I was in an epic battle with my eyelids, pulling out all the stops to stay awake and avoid the wrath of my wife. Alas, the eyelids won (don't they always?).
The characters on this are silly, the plot...oh, I don't know why I'll bother anymore; The movie is just bad, I'd recommend skipping it."
Its better then i was told

"I like the dd3 alot i was told it wasn't good but i had to complete my collection, even though eddie murphy is not in it doesn't mean its bad or that its based on maya the youngest. I think that it gives a new twist on the movie."
