Dolittle - Movie Review

The movie, Dolittle, is set in the 19th century in England. It is about a man named Dr. John Dolittle. He is a doctor who can communicate with animals. He met a woman named Lily. She showed up to his manor because her bird was sick. They got married and lived very happily together with all of the animals. Lily then went on a voyage and there was a storm at sea and she passed away. Ever since she has passed, Dr. John Dolittle has refused to see anyone or see any other patient’s animals.

One day a boy was hunting in the woods and accidentally shot a squirrel. He goes through the woods and ends up at Dr. Dolittle’s manor. The boy enters the house to try and see if Dolittle could help with the squirrel. A young girl then shows up and says that the queen was very ill and request Dr. Dolittle’s help. The young girl explains that if Dolittle does not help the queen that his manor will be taken away from him. He then goes to see the queen and soon realizes she was poisoned with a deadly plant. He and his animals set out on an adventure to an island to find the fruit that will cure the queen’s illness.

We really enjoyed this movie. It was very funny and had a bit of action to it. It is a very good movie to watch with your family. Kids will love all of the animals and adults will enjoy the action and humor. We would rate this movie a 10/10.
