DOCTOR DOLITTLE* (Theatrical Release USA 1998)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

Doctor Dolittle—remake of the 1967 film of the same name—has strong comedic elements that run at the border’s edge of what is and is not acceptable for children or adults. It is simply written, and children will catch most of the comedic dialogue and enjoy the very good animation of all animals. The movie fleshes out well with enough animals, venues, and humans to make a worthy and relatable story.
