"The sequel to the very popular DR DOOLITTLE delivers again in DR DOOLITTLE 2. Eddie Murphy and Norm McDonald return in this great family comedy. You can bet that there are more great laughs and again that same cute comedy is in this one.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!"

""Dr. Dolittle 2" is a large improvement over the first one. First of all, less obsenity and more funnier jokes (most of them are body humor, but it's all in good, clean fun). 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."

""Dr. Dolittle 2" was a cute movie. It was definitely better that it's prequel and it actually had a good plot: A logging company wants to tear down hundreds of acres of forest-- leaving the animals that live there homeless. Dr. Dolittle (with the help of his animal friends) comes up with a plot to save the forest! An endangered species of bears lives in the forest, but there is only one...a female. In order to save the forest, Dr. Dolittle must successfully mate the female with another male of the same species. There's a catch-- the only male available is a tamed circus bear! Dr. Dolittle has one month to turn "Wayne Newton with fur" into a real outdoor bear and get him to mate with the female. 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."
Delightful Dr. Dolittle 2

"I love this movie for some many reasons. The first reason is that Eddie always make me laugh. Raven-Symone and Lil' Zane and Kyla Pratt give great appeal for the teenage audience.Second the animals in the movie were hiralously funny. The best part was when the animals stike back at the land developers. You have got to see that part of the movie it is so 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."
