Synopsis: In Victorian England, an eccentric, widowed veterinarian prefers the company of animal friends—with whom he can talk. But when the queen gets sick, Dr. Dolittle must summon up bravery and sail to a mysterious island to find a cure.
Our Take: This film is a feast for the eyes, with stunning scenery, historic settings, and lifelike animals. It will lead to discussions about God’s wonderful world and the vast range of creatures he made. The movie shows the benefits of venturing outside your comfort zone, but scenes of peril may be too intense for some children.
