Movie Reviews

  • while "Dolittle" is unlikely to become a cult classic like its predecessors and doesn't necessarily transcend generations, it will likely find a captivated audience in its young viewers
    2.5 of 5 by KiMi Robinson [Arizona Republic ]
  • the film is so eager to please, so relentlessly quippy and quirky and tipped with antic whimsy, it often feels like visiting a zoo built into a Tilt-A-Whirl
    Review rate : C+ by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • Robert Downey Jr. veers dangerously into Johnny Depp territory in this elaborately staged but charmless adaptation of the classic childrens' books
    1.5 of 4 by Rafer Guzman [Newsday ]
  • Robert Downey Jr. turns in a bizarre, but entertaining performance in "Dolittle", though it doesn't much elevate this generic family-friendly adventure
    2.5 of 5 by Molly Freeman [ScreenRant ]
  • no doctor can cure what ails this Dolittle; The oddly diffident star and executive producer Robert Downey Jr. never finds the power-supplying third rail needed to energize a tale that fails to make a real case for being reinterpreted
    by Todd McCarthy [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • If you want to go into something and just laugh and have fun, then you'll enjoy "Dolittle"; this movie is one that you can take the kids to, have fun, and not really think too much during, and that's, sometimes, the best kind of adventure movie
    3 of 5 by Rachel Leishman [The Mary Sue ]
  • "Dolittle" is not a funny movie--sweet and engaging sometimes to be sure, but nowhere near a laugh-riot; It's a film made for children. So we should probably mostly view it through that lens. In that regard, the movie is perfectly okay
    by Richard Lawson [Vanity Fair ]
  • "Dolittle" can most generously be described as passable for young, undiscerning viewers. It won't charm or amuse you particularly but it's not a catastrophe, the highest praise I can muster
    2 of 5 by Benjamin Lee [The Guardian ]
