There is nothing particularly great but at the same nothingparticularly bad in this animal talking live action movie. The leadcharacter seems to be a little on the dense side at times. The pacingof the movie seems to slow down too much in places. What's interestingis the performances and acting of the Presidential detail outside theimmediate advisors that add to the authenticity of the movie which isusually loosely handled in other movies. One of the lead character'spets actions seems rather oddly portrayed in the movie. Overall thismovie had a comprehendible storyline, an environmental focus, anddecent if not superlative acting. There's even a Presidential lesson tobe learned by young people who watch.

While this isn't Oscar-worthy, and it will never be nominated for Videoof the Year, Kyla Pratt doesn't fail to entertain, in spite of a laxplot so full of holes, it's nearly nonexistent. The dialog is the worstkind of cheese, and the whole execution is completely idiotic. However,the premise is rather cute and amusing, and Kyla Pratt is cute andamusing DOING it. Although suspension of belief is nearly impossiblewhen faced with the horrible dialog and implausible plot elements,contrived story devices, and horrible production quality...and in theface of all that, somehow I don't hate it. That's mainly because of the"cuteness" factor and Kyla Pratt's growing abilities as an actress inspite of the horrible parts she has been shoe-horned into. I likedit...oddly enough.
It rates a 4.2/10 on the Str82Video Scale.
It rates a 3.6/10 on the Movie Scale from...

To call this movie lackluster gives the word a bad name. To call itgood is an insult to movie goers everywhere. But to call this movie awaste of time is a good starting point.
Somehow, a Dr Dolittle 4 has been made and this time no Eddie Murphy.You probably couldn't pay him to even watch this movie. He probablywould rather pick up a transvestite along the side of the road againinstead of watch it. Yes it was that bad.
The movie is basically the young Dolittle entering college and onlygaining 'temporary admission' and having to show some activity to gainfull admission. While that is hogwash, it gets better. PUSA (thePresident) is inviting over a fake leader of a fake African nation tosign a fake treaty. Yes, some evil logging company wants to destroy therain forest because thats all they want to do.
Dolittle saves the day with her animal pals. And evil logging isstopped. Everybody get real excited! I really thought this movie shouldhave been cut in funding to see how ingenious they would have to getwith real animals. Instead, its not even entertaining. "F"
Maya Dolittle, who can talk to animals like her father, is placed on special assignment by the President of the United States of America.
