Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Below Average "If only the story's essential fantasy were true: I bet the animal reaction to ''Dr. Dolittle 2'' would be biting.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good ""D r. Dolittle" is a cute, crude and good-hearted movie. It's not the kind of movie that rewards deep study, and it's an easy assignment for Murphy, whose work in the Nutty Professor movies is much more versatile (and funnier). As the PG rating suggests, this is a movie aimed at younger audiences, which are likely to enjoy the cute animals, the simple plot, the broad humor''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Above Average "It's the kind of material that is either going to make your day or not, though parents who have been dragged into past kiddie-pic trenches won't come out battered and scarred. While this Dolittle does too little, it's harmless.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Another winner for Eddie Murphy. Kids and teens loved it, which isn't a surprise. THIS IS NOT JUST A KIDS MOVIE! Young adult males rated it quite high. Some of the young adult females rated it somewhat lower. Adults 30+, both male and female, rated it pretty high, but there were a few who just rated it average to slightly below average.

Since no one truly disliked this movie, I highly recommend Dr. Dolittle to everyone who enjoys this type of movie. I'm confident most will enjoy it very much and the few remaining ones will, at the very least, feel it's an OK movie.

Parents, take the kids to see this great family movie!

Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
VERY FUNNY! The audience loved it. There's one laugh after another. The jokes come fast and most of them work. This silly, cute type of story/humor may not appeal to everyone. I thought it was better than the first one. If you enjoyed the first Dr. Dolittle you will almost certainly enjoy this newest version even more. Obviously the story is very simple and totally predictable and almost too cute, so don't go expecting more than that and you will probably have a great time!


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The now-famous doc has more patients - two-legged and four-legged - than he can handle. But his animal friends want more than office visits. The outraged critters want to save their forest from unscrupulous human developers, and they're seeking Dolittle's help.

Dolittle concocts a plan to save the forest: Find an endangered species the law protects. He discovers a lone endangered Pacific Western Bear, Ava, living in the condemned forest. But she needs a mate - and Dolittle thinks he's found one in Archie, a city-dwelling, wise-cracking, fast food-loving, circus-performing bear. Although Archie initially resists the idea, Dolittle convinces him there's love to be found in his natural habitat.

Dolittle and his dog Lucky head to the forest to try and teach Archie the ways of the wild. Unfortunately, it's hardly a love connection for the mismatched bears, as Ava is unimpressed by Archie's bumbling antics. And Lucky's love life with a local wolf isn't faring much better.

Will Dolittle's animal friends start walking picket lines? Can he come up with the right prescription to bring Ava and Archie together, and save the forest? Will Lucky get lucky? It's down to the wire, as Dolittle and company give the money-hungry land-grabbers a taste of real bargaining power - wilderness style.
