Dolittle: A Potted History

Robert Downey Jr. electrifies one of literature's most enduring characters in a vivid reimagining of the classic tale of the man who could talk to animals: Dolittle.

After losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle (Downey), famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria's England, hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company.

But when the young queen (Jessie Buckley, Wild Rose) falls gravely ill, a reluctant Dolittle is forced to set sail on an epic adventure to a mythical island in search of a cure, regaining his wit and courage as he crosses old adversaries and discovers wondrous creatures.

Walked Out

Reviewer: LynnGDate: 2020-03-03

Awful film. I dunno whose idea it was for RDJ to put on a welsh accent. It was cringingly bad. I lasted about 45 mins and left. Animals were ok, but bit tired of the whole CGI thing. Kids will probably love it though!

Appalling film, has nothing going for it, unbearably awful accent from the lead character, silly childish jokes. Stick with the original charming film and avoid this.

Loved this film and all the animals would definitely go again
