I spent $30 on Tickets, $20 on Snacks... Kids were awake through the Trailers, they were more interesting, and fun than the actual movie was. 15 minutes in the movie my kids fell asleep. $50 to sleep. I stayed awake for every terrible moment of the movie; cliche jokes, predictable plot, lame humor, everything about the movie was terrible. The trailer for the movie made Dolittle seem like it was going to be an epic. Nope. The VFX, voice acting, and barely tolerable quickly cut scenes make this movie something that came out in 00’. Don’t even watch this on Netflix/Redbox - save your time & money.

What Sheen, born in Gwent, makes of Downey’s accent can only be imagined. It really is horribly inert, and every time Downey opens his mouth to say something unintelligible, the film dies a bit more.

Words are generally a problem for Dolittle—a fatal flaw when your picture is about talking animals. While the words are abundant, most are either perfunctory exposition or anachronistic jokes that fall flatter than the state of Nebraska.

This out-and-out disaster dissolves in a puddle of botched intentions that will leave children sad and confused and adults scratching their heads.
