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

The two young bears at the end of the movie are Little Bart and Honey Bear, also owned by famed grizzly trainer Doug Seus, and the subject of two Animal Planet specials. The two bears, who were cubs at the time, were on the set at the time of filming and the director decided to add the final scene after seeing them. See more »

Goofs

When Doctor Dolittle is visiting Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin's TV set in Australia, the animal is presented as an alligator (which it is) but there are only crocodiles in Australia. To add insult to injury, the alligator has an Australian accent. See more »

Absolutely nothing like the books, but a pleasant film and better than Murphy's other Doolittle film
10 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

I am pretty surprised at the low scores for this film, as I thought for a family comedy it achieved its goals quite well. Plus, I usually hate these sort of schmaltzy films, and so the fact that I liked it is a bit unusual and says something about it. I think the biggest reason was that they did NOT attempt to recreate the famous Doolittle novels or re-create the Rex Harrison film but boldly took the character in other directions in both Doolittle films. Plus, unlike Murphy's first Doolittle film, this one had a very nice infusion of humor--and I THOUGHT, incorrectly, that I would hate all the talking animal nonsense (just like I hated LOOK WHO'S TALKING). While this little film won't change your life, it's a decent film that won't insult your intelligence and will give you a few good laughs.

Also, while I have seen enough of "That's so Raven" because of my kids, Raven Simone did a lovely job in the film--proving she's not just a cute flash-in-the-pan child actress.
