What did you think of this film?
After losing his wife (Kasia Smutniak) seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle (Downey), famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria’s England, hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company.
But when the young queen (Jessie Buckley) falls gravely ill, a reluctant Dolittle is forced to set sail on an epic adventure to a mythical island in search of a cure, regaining his wit and courage as he crosses old adversaries and discovers wondrous creatures.
The doctor is joined on his quest by a young, self-appointed apprentice (Harry Collett) and a raucous coterie of animal friends, including an anxious gorilla (Rami Malek), an enthusiastic but bird-brained duck (Octavia Spencer), a bickering duo of a cynical ostrich (Kumail Nanjiani) and an upbeat polar bear (John Cena) and a headstrong parrot (Emma Thompson), who serves as Dolittle’s most trusted advisor and confidante.

|Click to see whats: during the credits
- Various oil portraits of the awards ceremony are shown (Doolittle getting knighted, the animals getting metals, etc.). The portraits, then show the cast/animals as the credits show who voiced/played them. Then the portraits become a parade ceremony.
- The announcer, Polly, says something like if you are wondering about Dr. Blair Mudfly. They show him at the bottom of the cave. He tries to talk to the Bats and gets excited when he thinks they can understand him, but they end up attacking him instead.
