Dr. Dolittle 2 | 2001 | PG | - 3.3.3

Eddie Murphy returns as the doctor who can talk to the animals. This time Dr. Dolittle tries to save the animals from the doings of an evil clear-cutting magnate. Also with Kristen Wilson, Jeffrey Jones, Kevin Pollak, Steve Irwin, Lisa Kudrow, Norm Macdonald, Kyla Pratt, Raven-Symone, Molly Shannon, Adam Vernier, Steve Zahn and Lil' Zane. [1:21]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A man and a woman kiss a couple of times; one time they nearly kiss while dancing and talking romantically, and a young man and woman nearly kiss, but the young man ends up kissing a monkey instead. A young woman wears tight fitting, figure revealing clothes and dances suggestively in front of a mirror. Some sexual innuendo, including animals "cleaning" their private parts, being in heat, and two turtles with an infertility problem. A man talks suggestively about a gift he brought his wife from France, there are discussions about helping bears mate, animals flirt with each other, an animal refers to being a virgin, and some non-profane anatomical references.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A crocodile talks about taking a man's arm off and we hear a crunch and a burp. A man pokes a bear several times and a bear shoves a man who falls into a pile of excrement. A bear falls down basement stairs and falls from a tree. A bear walks out onto a log, which hangs over a cliff, and it nearly breaks. Bees swarm a few men and a bear, birds target and drop droppings on two men, wolves surround and snarl at two men, a man is pelted with eggs, rats swarm a man's office and he tries to stomp on them, and a bear growls loudly at a man. A bear is shot with a tranquilizer dart. Two mice are dropped from a window into a dumpster, and a man threatens to throw a possum off a roof. Two men yell at each other over the phone. A bear nearly drowns while learning how to catch fish. A wolf snarls at a dog several times. A bear has noisy and smelly indigestion, a dog marks forest trees repeatedly, a wolf marks a dog and a raccoon urinates on a desk.

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.
