Storyline

Dr. John Dolittle the beloved doctor is back, but this time around he plays cupid to bumbling circus bear Archie as he's so smitten by a Pacific Western bear female, Ava. Dr. Dolittle must help a group of forest creatures to save their forest. But with the aid of his mangy, madcap animal friends, Dr. Dolittle must teach Archie the ways of true romance in time to save his species and his home before their habit is gone. So John held a meeting for every animal in the forest to not give up without a fight no matter what kind of animal expression they have and everyone agrees to do it and save their home.

Trivia

When Archie exits the cave to talk to Dolittle. As the discussion heats up, the Doc pokes at Archie who paws him back and knocks him down. For this scene the trainer was in the cave with Archie and released the bear that then walks out of the cave. A split screen was used, so when the bear part was being filmed, the trainer stood in for the actor. See more »

Very Cute, and in some ways even better than the 1st!
9 March 2002 | by dvdmrpSee all my reviews

I really didn't know what to expect when I popped in the DVD. I mean,

I own the first and I liked it. It was cute, but only mildly funny. I had seen the previews for this movie, and it looked kinda dumb. I still wanted to see it, becuase I am a Eddie Murphy fan. I am really happy that I decided to see this. It was actually pretty funny. I actually found it funnier than the first. Eddie Murphy really got to be more like himself in this one. He told more jokes and was a lot funnier. Sure, some of the gags were childish, and parts of the plot are stupid, but in the end I enjoyed it. I think that you will too. 8/10 Not great, but you should still see it, or add it to your Dvd collection. I did.
