Dr. Dolittle | 1998 | PG-13 | - 2.3.2

Remake of the 1967 film, with Eddie Murphy in the title role as a man who can hear and talk to animals.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Some sexual innuendo. Part of a woman's buttocks is exposed in preparation for an injection. Discussions of sex between humans and animals, and preparation for an impending sexual encounter, but nothing happens.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man's nose is broken after being hit by a door. A man punches another man in the face. A woman has a very swollen face (due to an allergic reaction). It is implied that a dog has been run over by a car and in another scene it is implied that a tiger is not going to survive surgery. Reckless driving.

LANGUAGE 2 - A lot of scatological humor, including a couple of scatological terms, a discussion of the use of a rectal thermometer, flatulence, and birds defecating on people. Also about 10 anatomical references, and about a dozen mild obscenities and insults.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Bestiality, delusions, ambition and greed, being a vet.
MESSAGE - There are higher callings in life than making a lot of money. Animals are as special as humans.
CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
