How We Determine Our Grades

Dr. Dolittle has been the subject of other screen productions. Check our review of the first Eddie Murphy Dr. Dolittle, or the more family friendly 1967 musical Doctor Dolittle starring Rex Harrison as an English physician who prefers treating animal patients to the human kind.

Other family films about animal heroes are Paulie, Babe, and Chicken Run—cute animals without the same dose of language and crude humor.

And don’t forget to check your local library for the stories of Hugh Lofting who created the classic doctor upon whom these films are loosely based.
