Animal-vet antics a la Murphy; some potty humor.

Often tedious, occasionally cheap looking and always unimaginative, this should certainly put paid to any plans for a third installment. But, this being Hollywood, I wouldn't bank on it.

The script is lackluster and unambitious. Well, lame really. Eddie Murphy is truly the only reason to see DR2.

Delivers an adequate number of laughs at the start and finish, with a noticeable sag in the middle.

It does what it does well enough.

This more civilized Dr. Dolittle may be less zany than he used to be, but at least you can take the kids to see this one.

The movie that the first one should have been.

Murphy has reached a genuine low point. It's a thoroughly insipid, feeble-minded film that all but screams, 'We're only in it for the money.'

Hardly ever elevates its humor beyond the mindset of a 10 year old.

Murphy, who was upstaged by the talking animals in the original, brings bite as well as bark to the funnier sequel.

Certainly the special effects, designed by the wizards at Rhythm and Hues, reach a new plateau of believability for talking-animal CGI.

Better than the first one thanks to a funnier cast of animals, including a mob style animal group headed by the Godbeaver and Joey the Raccoon.

A likeable, sporadically funny movie that will satisfy the less demanding tot.

Genial but feeble follow-up to the 1998 hit.

Dr. Dolittle 2's plot is wooden, its pacing leaden, and anyone over the age of 12 is bound to find themselves yawning soon after the opening credits.

The kind of film that children may find amusing but their parents will wish that they didn't.

If you thought Murphy's recent movies have been increasingly bland, this is certainly more of the same.

Historia totalmente intrascendente y sin gracia...

A raucous sequel to the 1998 comic blockbuster giving special attention to the antics of a whole menagerie of animals.

This sequel tries to get by with easy to devise, recycled humor.
