Eddie Murphy is probably the most popular Dr. Doolittle, who speaks with animals in two films (in 1998 and 2001), but Hugh Lofting's children's book series actually has a bunch of film adaptations.

The new one now smells like a presentation of the latest computer magic - and your kid will love it, and Robert Downey Junior is typically entertained in the eccentric vet vests. He explains his choice of role with him wanting to make a kid's movie, a type he also saw as a kid - that is, fairytale and nature, not a LEGO-like one, let's say. The story (based on the second book of the series) begins emotionally: the doctor has retired in an estate, a gift from the English Queen Victoria, after the death of his wife7 years ago and does not want to speak to anyone but his talking beasts. When the young queen becomes ill, he embarks on an expedition to a far island to look for a magic cure. This is where the  encounters begin and they will slowly return Doolittle's spirit - especially his communication with a young self-appointed apprentice. The kids in the lounge, however, may miss out on these nuances, sucked in by the lavish cacophony of this phantasmagoric adventure with pretty realistic wildlife of real size animals and human voices.
