Maleficent and her goddaughter Aurora begin to question the complex family ties that bind them as they are pulled in different directions by impending nuptials, unexpected allies and dark new forces at play.
The eccentrically macabre family moves to a bland suburb where Wednesday Addams' friendship with the daughter of a hostile and conformist local reality show host exacerbates conflict between the families.
Chloë Grace Moretz
After his wife's death, Dr. John Dolittle (Robert Downey, Jr.) decided to hide from the world with his beloved animals. But he has to take a journey to a mysterious island to find a healing tree, which is the only medicine that can help the dying Queen Victoria (Jessie Buckley) in Buckingham Palace.
Given RDJs back catalog and how he can run a film I was hoping for a bit more from this.
Don't get me wrong, I mean it's an easy family film, I just hoped he would make it bit more than just that. It almost felt that he was kind of holding back at points to make sure it was nice for children.
Overall it isn't a bad kids film, it's a lot better than the Eddie Murphy vision but it lacks the magic of the Rex Harrison Doolittle.
