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.
When Doctor Dolittle (1967) was being filmed in Wiltshire, England, a young British army officer attempted to blow up a dam built by the movie production team, believing it ruined the landscape. Ironically, the young officer was Ranulph Fiennes, a third cousin once removed of Ralph Fiennes, who voices Barry the tiger in this movie. See more »
When going to see the Queen, the animals and Rose claim they are going to Buckingham Palace. Yet, they arrive to Blenheim Palace, which is not only not a royal palace, but also not remotely similar in either location or architecture to Buckingham Palace. See more »
If you think this movie was boring or terrible you have no imagination and your inner child is dead old and grumpy. It was delightful, imaginative and enjoyable to watch. I don't understand all the hate for it. Go see it and imagine!
