THE MATING GAME

Advantagesfunny film with cute animals

Disadvantageshasnt got Rodney the guinea pig in it

"...easy situation. Dr Doolittle - the doctor who has the magically talent of talking to animals. Everyone talks to their pets, by saying hello etc to them. How many can say, they can hold a two-way conversation with them? He puts this to great use by becoming a vet to help out all the ill animals that come to see him. His passion for helping out so many animals often puts a strain on his marriage and relationship with his children. Having to sacrifice ..." Read review

Doctor I've got this barking cough

AdvantagesGreat laugh,

Disadvantagesnone

"Doctor Dolittle 2 is a classic film that for me was even more entertaining than the first one (Doctor Dolittle). Again Eddie Murphy plays the animal orientated doctor, who can hear every bark, me-ow, and other noise that is made by any animal. But when they reach his ears, they magically turn into words for him to understand! In Doctor Dolittle 2, Murphy is summoned to see a beaver! Trying to tell all of the beavers associate’s that he needs ..." Read review

bear necessities

AdvantagesEddie Murphy, effects

DisadvantagesLil Zane, R&B soundtrack, weak plot

"When the first Dr Dolittle was released I was dragged alone by my younger brother to see it not expecting much. What I got was an entertaining kids film that served a purpose. Now a few years later I find myself once more dragged along to see the sequel. Not much has changed for Dr Dolittle, his popularity with the animals shows no signs of slowing down as he helps them with their problems like only he can. One night he is approached by a member ..."

DR DOLITTLE IS BACK IN THE HOUSE

AdvantagesGood storylines that are combined

DisadvantagesNot as good as the original

"Dr. Dolittle is back inside the house and he's even bigger and better! Dr. Dolittle was the original film from 1998, it was great, everyone I know loved it so I went back to the cinema to see whether the follow up is just as good....... The film begins with Dr Dolittle, (Eddie Murphy) who has the powers to speak to members of the animal kingdom. His job is to help the little creatures and whilst doing this Dr. Dolittle's eldest daughter Charisse, ..." Read review

Dr. Doless

AdvantagesSome funny one-liners, good computer animal talking

DisadvantagesBit long, not enough comedy to keep children entertained

"...as the original, with the Doctor having his wife and daughter around him. I won't give any of the plot away too much since I don't want to spoil the ending but the storyline is based around the fact that the animals ask for the doctor's help in saving a forest from being chopped down by some big corporate. To do this, the doctor tries to introduce 2 bears that should mate and create a protected species and would then deter the forest from being destroyed. ..." Read review

Not as bad as I thought

AdvantagesA lot better than i thought, pretty funny

DisadvantagesEddie Murphy, annoying children

"I don’t recall seeing Dr Dolittle 1, I may have seen the odd bit here and there but not the whole thing…I imagine it was much the same as the sequel. After the events of the first film, Dr John Dolittle (Eddie Murphy) is still (?) a vet and has people queuing outside his house with their pets so he can listen to them and treat them. Of course some wild creatures also turn up, having got wind of the human that can speak to animals. A ..." Read review

Dolittle Is Back... Review with images

AdvantagesA good family comedy

DisadvantagesSome unecessary special features

"Very bored and looking for an opinion today I found that the Dr. Dolittle 2 DVD had not been reviewed and seeing as it’s part of my DVD collection I thought, might as well… Firstly the film: Sequel to the original high grossing film Dr. Dolittle, Eddie Murphy remains as the title character who can still talk with animals. Now everybody knows about his talent he is asked in this comedy to help try to save the forest from being developed ..." Read review

Ahhh its a sequel

AdvantagesIt is a good sequel

DisadvantagesMaybe a third and would not be as good

"I am often cautious when I go to the picture to screen a sequel,I could not think of any films that the sequel was better a part from the Godfather-but apart from that nah I could not know a better one! To be honest I did not like the orginal but my friend dragged me there kicking and screaming! Eddie Murphy( Bev. Hills) stars as Dr. John Dolittle, in the original, he was betted by some little fury thing. At last he is the star, providing ..." Read review

Doctor 2 Little

Advantageswhere Ava and Archie have cubs - that part is very cute and funny

Disadvantageswhere Archie farts and does a poo!!!

"Doctor Dolittle One was a big hit in the U.K. Even though it was a PG, it says on the video that people say it’s “funny and engaging – for both adults and children to enjoy”. But now we’re all talking about Doctor Dolittle 2. It’s PG like Doctor Dolittle 1, but I think it’s funny and that it should be a U. Eddie Murphy plays Doctor Dolittle in both the films. Doctor Dolittle 2 is about a bear called ..." Read review

As good as the first, bring on 3

Advantagesfunny and enjoyable for all the family

Disadvantagesnone that i can think of

"...up. It is about a doctor who as a child realised he could talk to and understand animals, but it was frowned upon, so he didn't discover his full capability until an unfortunate accident as an adult brought back his gift. In Dr Dolittle 2, the Dr only has 3 weeks to save a forest from a corrupt developer. A rare type of bear could be the only saviour, but the she has to be able to reproduce, so a male,formerly a circus bear, is found and the Dr ..." Read review

Doctor in the Woods

AdvantagesThe comic skill of one Eddie Murph

DisadvantagesNot a lot new here

"...a beaver convince the good doctor to help save their forest from the evil tree fellers. Cue the last of a species defence a little courtroom drams but primarily its about reintroducing a circus bear back to the wild to mate with a wild female and save the species and the forest. Lots of laughs for children and adults alike but the plot is transparant and the twists and turns can be seen a mile off. Still it was designed for the kids and it will ..." Read review
