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.

The chaotic cutting and framing of almost every scene suggests an enormous amount of Downey Jr's dialogue was re-recorded after the shoot: tellingly, the actor is rarely facing the camera while speaking, and often isn't even on screen.

This 2020 movie is the first version of Dr Dolittle to feature a dragon having a set of bagpipes removed from her posterior. And that's not a recommendation.
February 6, 2020
Dr. Dolittle has to pull a set of bagpipes out of a dragon's bum. Now I know it's a kids' movie, and some kids might think that's funny, and in the right context that could be funny, but it's not.

Thankfully, the CGI work is outstanding. This is enough to mean Dolittle is not a total steaming pile of doo-doo but it's still whiffy.

There's a lot wrong with Dolittle but one of the most shocking of the bunch is that Downey Jr.'s performance doesn't work at all. One might expect him to be well suited to play a lovable jerk, but there's no charm in his rendition of the character.

One assumes the reported $175 million budget was spent on the star names behind the animals, leaving little for stunts or adventure effects. Or, in fact, a decent script.

This latest incarnation "Dr. Dolittle," starring Robert Downey, Jr., is for kindergarten-age children only.

Dolittle? Just don't.

The famous Tony Stark looks exaggerated, mainly in his vocal tone and certain gestures, so it is difficult to feel that his performance is credible. [Full Review in Spanish]

'Dolittle' is not a good movie, and I don't think it's an effective entertainment either. [Full review in Spanish]
January 30, 2020
An uncynical but mostly lacklustre kids' flick that doesn't find its voice, animal or otherwise.
January 30, 2020
An unintelligible and uninspired family adventure that wastes the talent of its impressive cast. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 30, 2020
Unconnected sequences without any causal glue that managed to unite them. [Full review in Spanish]

It's not easy to explain how a screenwriter of this level of experience has composed such a cumbersome story. [Full review in spanish]

It is with deep and abiding regret that we report the passing of Robert Downey, Jr. - one of the last of his generation of trailblazers - over to the dark side.
