"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."
Funny, Funny, Funny!

"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.

"Based on the children's story and brought to life in a new way, Eddie Murphy in DR DOOLITTLE is a cute kids comedy and a pretty good comedy in general. And there's a lot of funny parts with the animals in this movie and it's very touching as well.As a kid, John Doolittle (Murphy) didn't have too many friends but the friends he did have were special to hum because he was the only who could understand him. Why? Because they were animals. He could talk to and understand animals. But after he got in trouble for talking with the family dog, he was forced to stop talking to animals. Now as an adult, after an accident where he hit a dog, he realizes that he heard the dog talk to him. Now he realizes that he still has his gift and now it's a question if he can keep his sanity and if he can do the right thing and help everyone that needs him, including the animals.This one is really cute and kids will love this one. Plus it's pretty funny as well. And of course there are plenty of other celebrities pitching their voices for this movie like Pee Wee Herman, Chris Rock, Norm McDonald, Jenna Elfman, John Leguizamo and Albert Brooks to name a few. The soundtrack to this movie is also very good as well with Aaliyah, All Saints, Wu-Tang's Raekwon and more.The kids will love this one and this a good comedy for the entire family. It's very clean and there isn't any swearing or any adult themes at all. It's a very fun movie. Check out DR DOOLITTLE and don't forget to check out DR DOOLITTLE 2. Enjoy this family comedy!"
