More red flags than a movie made by the Sci-fi channel
6 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My mom put this on our rental queue, and I did some research on it while it sat there while it snaked it's way to the top of the list. It was here at IMDb that I saw Red Flags, a shortened way of saying "things that indicate that the movie you are going to see is going to be a painful experience that you're probably going to turn off to stop the pain".

First off, no Eddie Murphy. Let's think about this, people: a sequel to a film whose main character isn't even present for. If the MOVIE is called Dr. Dolittle 3, I think you'd expect Dr. Dolittle to be there in some physical way. In other words, if they really wanted to waste some cash on a movie that shouldn't have been green lit but was because of a studio believing in capitalizing on franchises instead of releasing quality films, they should have renamed it.

Second Red Flag: hordes of reviewers calling it a "family movie". I'm sorry people, but if you're calling it a "family movie" it tends to be a euphemism for "hokey garbage that you hope will entertain your kids for 2 hours while you pray to God for it to end".

Red Flag #3, the fact that this was a straight to film release, a MAJOR sign of mediocrity/ disappointment being eminent: frankly, I don't know why production companies even release projects that are straight to video, they may as well just pull the plug on the project and get a refund much like the disappointed viewers who feel like they've been conned by the film companies.

The 4th Red Flag came when it arrived and we forced ourselves to watch it. 10 minutes later, the movie was turned off: none of us could sit through it because it was horrible and you could feel the financial failure pulsating through every frame. In other words, you're getting a jaded movie review here because I didn't even bother to watch the entire feature, and I'm pretty sure you understand why.
