Dolittle Reviews

A bore that will struggle to entertain the youngest of audience members.
February 20, 2020
Dolittle is the worst kind of mess: a boring one.
February 18, 2020
It's for the kids, and it wasn't a strong script at all... and a lot of the jokes fell flat.
February 17, 2020
The degree to which Dolittle eventually winds up alienating the viewer is actually rather surprising...
February 16, 2020
Do little to see this CGI train wreck.
February 13, 2020
This nothingness doesn't even have the good grace to be a bad movie. The low-point of every single career involved.
February 12, 2020
This is a rickety, badly planned film, full of lazy Cgi, plot non-sequiturs and dodgy Welsh accents, not least Mr Downey's.
February 12, 2020
Dolittle ought to have ... done less.
February 11, 2020
Dolittle at times borders on the unforgivingly terrible. All the magic ingredients were there, yet the end result is empty, unsatisfying, and instantly forgettable.
February 10, 2020
Yes, less than a year after the aptly named Avengers: Endgame, he gives one of the worst performances of his career in a film that may make a few small children giggle (forgive them, they know no better) but disappoints on so many levels.
February 10, 2020
It's as if the makers had a weird plan to convince us the animals were utterly real - by implying that the only way to put them on screen was to film at random and cut the footage into any form possible.
February 10, 2020
It's symptomatic of an awkward, unwieldy movie that has lots of material to show you and lots of surface distractions, but nothing at all to say.
February 10, 2020
But what could have been a charming kids' movie... quickly turns instead into a disjointed, chaotic mess.
February 8, 2020
The animals are not funny - not even for younger viewers - or even interesting.
February 7, 2020
The terrible script, the terrible visuals, the dull plot... the fact that at 101 minutes it really tested the patience, it is shockingly poor.
February 7, 2020
Aside from an intriguing opening that introduces us to Dolittle as a grief-stricken recluse living in a country mansion with a menagerie of exotic animal pals, the film fails to enchant on any level.
February 7, 2020
But despite a menagerie of big voices to keep him company, Dolittle has no bark or bite.
February 7, 2020
Dementedly misguided enough to at least be perversely watchable, Dolittle is a fascinating calamity that criminally wastes an all-star cast.
February 7, 2020
It really is horribly inert, and every time Downey opens his mouth to say something unintelligible, the film dies a bit more.
February 7, 2020
With lacklustre jokes, boring plot and a misused cast of voice talent, Dolittle is the remake no-one needed.
