Get Ready for the Adventure of a Lifetime with Dolittle

Disclosure: I received a copy of the movie below in exchange for my honest opinion.  All opinions are my own.

Our Review of Dolittle

Directed by Stephen Gaghan, Dolittle is based on a story by Thomas Shepherd.

Dr. John Dolittle (Robert Downey, Jr.) is a veterinarian who can talk to animals. After a dramatic loss in his life, John goes into seclusion, until he meets Kevin (Craig Robinson). As the queen of England lies in a bed from a dire medical emergency, Dr. Dolittle is summoned to her castle. There, he determines the cause and sets out on a journey for the cure.

I really enjoyed the plot of the movie. Robert Downey Jr. is really showing his acting diversity playing this role. I’ve been so accustomed to watching him in Marvel movies as Tony Stark/Iron Man. This movie was nicely done and the CGI with the animals was superb.

I would highly recommend this movie, although I would recommend it for any age of nine years old and older, as the younger kids may get lost in the storyline, the animals are quite entertaining.
