The animals save the people in this comedy.
Dr. Dolittle 2 is a film that attempts to poke fun at some of today's pop culture. Jokes involving "Super Size," "Wassssssup," and "The Backstreet Boys," all appear within this sequel. However, this type of film has to be backed up with something more than witty animal comments, and opinions on pop culture. The animals give their part, but unfortunately the humans don't. The characters in this story, including Dr. Dolittle, are uninteresting. No one wants to see the formulaic family that has problems, and everyone knows that by the end of the film they'll all still love each other. That formula promotes boredom. Despite the foolish characters, this comedy isn't a total flop. Children will probably laugh at the crude jokes, while parents fall asleep. The animals give their 50%, but the humans are the ones who are lacking. I think its about time for Eddie Murphy to move on, and for Hollywood to drop the "Dolittle" franchise. **--C+
