Quite possibly the most embarrassing thing that Robert Downey Jr has associated himself with since his infamous drug benders of the late 90s and early 2000s

Dolittle is a fantasy adventure film based on the Doctor Dolittle stories by Hugh Lofting. Starring Robert Downey Jr in the title role, it is quite possibly the most embarrassing thing that this otherwise talented actor has associated himself with since his infamous drug benders of the late 90s and early 2000s.

In early Victorian England, Doctor John Dolittle (Robert Downey Jr), an eccentric veterinarian with an uncanny ability to talk with animals, lives as a recluse inside his large mansion after his wife is lost at sea, only tending to other animals and refusing contact with the outside world. One day, Dolittle is summoned to Buckingham Palace for his assistance after the Queen is found to be dying of a serious illness. Initially refusing, Dolittle is persuaded by his macaw Poly (voiced by Emma Thompson) to reconnect with other people and he later decides to head over there with his animal entourage. Upon arrival, Dolittle deduces that the Queen has ingested a deadly poison that can only be cured by the fruit of the Eden Tree, which grows exclusively on a faraway island. Dolittle then sets off on a journey with his new young apprentice Tommy (Harry Collett) and his animals in the hope of locating this mysterious fruit before the Queen's life is claimed by her sickness.

Despite the large amount of talent involved, Dolittle fails in almost every way possible at being an entertaining film for all ages, let alone as a worthy adaptation of a classic series of stories. The poorly paced, unfunny screenplay has the film moving with such a lack of care that it feels as though they were making it up as they went along. Characters felt underdeveloped and most gags were just annoying animal puns and/or fart jokes. I am fully aware that this film is intended for children but I'm sick and tired of people using that as an excuse to defend this lazy approach to filmmaking as a reason the audience should let it slide. There are plenty of films out there that are able to provide enough entertainment for children and adults alike without going down this easy route, even the 1998 Dr. Dolittle film starring Eddie Murphy, while not great by any means, had a better balance of entertainment value for everyone than this. I think I smiled once the entire film, and that was a scene involving a fly being freed from a flyswatter. When a fly made me feel more emotion than anything else happening in a film, that's where I realised there's a major problem.

The effects used on the animals are a mixed bag overall. Every now and then an animal looked reasonably well integrated into the real world environments while others were clearly CGI added in post-production. This film had a reported budget of $175 million, which is about the same as 2016's The Jungle Book, a film with more realistic looking CGI animals, so it comes as a surprise that the effects here felt so lacklustre in comparison. Personally, I would have much preferred the film's budget went towards hiring better screenwriters to touch up its terrible script as I can usually forgive mediocre CGI so long as the story is well-written, which this certainly isn't. According to further research, this film had three weeks of reshoots after poor test screenings so it wasn't as though the filmmakers were pressed for time when fixing things up, yet the final result is still as weak as ever.

As much as love Robert Downey Jr, it pains me to say that not even he could make this film watchable. He overacts in every scene he is in, not even in a so-bad-it's-good kind of way but one that makes the viewer pity him. Additionally, his attempt at a Welsh accent for his character was about as convincing as his Australian accent in Natural Born Killers and Tropic Thunder, laughably inconsistent and easy to distinguish as fake to native speakers. I hope this film is but a mere hiccup in his post-Marvel Cinematic Universe roles as an actor as brilliant as him deserves much better. None of the voice cast for the animals were particularly memorable either, as their only contribution to the story was that they were simply talking animals voiced by celebrities helping the title character and the novelty of them being voiced by famous actors wore off very quickly. It got to the point where I felt like playing celebrity voice bingo when their names came up in the end credits. Tom Holland? Check. John Cena? Check. Emma Thompson? Check. Rami Malek? Check. Selena Gomez? Bingo!

In conclusion, as bad as the film was, I can at least say it is very easy to forget about shortly after you have seen it. Also, due to it underperforming at the box office (Universal Pictures have reportedly lost over $100 million as a result), it is unlikely that a sequel will ever be made. This whole experience was merely a waste of time for everyone involved, nothing more, nothing less.

I rate it 3/10

Really Really POOR

175 Million Dollars to make this Downey's fee must have been 174 million due to the standard of the C.G.I and accompanying cast, by the way I watched it for free and I still want my money back.Do yourself a favour and watch the Rex Harrison, Samantha Eggar, Version it is mile better than this trash.

A jarring experience

Poorly cut scenes mar what could have been a fun adventure. By the end of the film I couldn't name a single character aside from the protagonist. No character development occurred anywhere so I didn't feel a connection with any of the characters. Most of the time I couldn't tell who was speaking because all of the voices sounded as though they were coming from a sound stage. The editing shows that there were reshoots and questionable choices. The opening ten minutes were so jarring that I can list this as the first movie to make me carsick. Underneath all of the issues could have been a great story, but I couldn't even get my 7 year old daughters to take an interest in this lackluster film. I even had to leave the room at one point because it gave me a headache.
