Movie Reviews

No Repeats
JediMack | VALRICO, FL USA | 06/26/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"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."

"Eddie "Egomaniac" Murphy needs to sit down, or pay someone to sit down, and think of an actual new movie that he can star in. It is been shown that he can make money off of murdering old movies and making them "his own". The real truth be told, these films are painfully unfunny. The Nutty Professor series is one that needs to be put to sleep. With a sequel planned for this film, it further demonstrates the fact that Eddie "Egomaniac" Murphy is tired of trying new things, he just wants to do the same old stuff, and then sit at home and count his money. All i have to say is that Eddie "Egomaniac" Murphy is just trying to con hardworking Americans out of their money. I say that we stop giving it to him."

"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!"

"The movie is a laugh out loud funny as heck movie. The Guinea Pig is the most funniest thing in the movie! This is the best movie you will ever see in your entire life so go buy it/ rent it today and you'll get your moneys worth! Go watch the movie and you will thank me for putting all this great stuff in this review of "Dr. Dolittle". This may not be good for your kids because of crude humor and language. But over all its pretty good!!! Thanks for reading!!!"
