CastEddie Murphy
NotesEddie Murphy is a talented guy, he's also very likeable but he still needs a script. As the young Dolittle he finds he can talk to his dog but this drives his parents up the wall and they get rid of the dog. Dolitte re-appears years later as a doctor. He's a real doctor whose credentials are established by a patient who has an allergy to shellfish. He advices her that she will still have a reaction to the shellfish even if she takes them out of the shell. Funny joke. But there's an evener stronger reaction in Dolittle when he hits a dog with his car. The dog gets up but has a little pinch of road rage and tells Dolittle to look where he's going. So big Dolittle is back talking to the animals. And that's basically the rest of the film. Remember the original Doctor Dolittle was a musical and that didn't fare too well. That started at 152 minutes and was cut to 144. This version doesn't even last the 82 minutes it is billed at. Clearly the film makers saw well before the audience did that this was a turkey.
