Dr. John Dolittle lives in a small English village where he specializes in caring for and verbally communicating with animals. When Dr. Dolittle is unjustly sent to an insane asylum for freeing a lovesick seal from captivity, his animals and two closest human friends, Matthew Mugg and Tommy Stubbins, liberate him. Afterward, they join Emma Fairfax and set out by boat to find a famed and elusive creature: the Great Pink Sea Snail.Written by
This is an incredibly slow, clunky, and plotless musical. I couldn't wait for it to end. Richard Fleischer definitely wasn't the right man for this movie. It was a big money loser when it first came out (only made half of its cost back), and it took over twenty years for it to make it all back - deservedly so. Even "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" was better than this.
