 Dolittle is directed by Stephen Gaghan and stars Robert Downey Jr., Antonio Banderas, Michael Sheen, Emma Thompson, Rami Malek, John Cena, Kumail Nanjiani, Octavia Spencer, Tom Holland, Craig Robinson, Ralph Fiennes, Selena Gomez, and Marion Cotillard. The plot of the movie is a physician discovers that he can talk to animals. Dolittle is a terrible movie in just about every single way it fails as a comedy, it fails as an adventure, and it fails as an action movie. The CGI is extremely unconvincing. Robert Downey Jr. is one of the most charming and likable actors on the planet, but he is really bad in this movie his accent is very distracting and it made it hard for me to take the character seriously.    All you get with this movie is a series of incoherent scenes that are so messy it is difficult to follow. Characters just go from one location to another along the way he encounters a tiger that needs therapy and for some stupid reason, the writers felt the need to put a scene in where Robert Downey Jr. pulls a bagpipe out of a dragon's ass I wish I was kidding.  The main problem with this movie is the reason he goes on this adventure is to save this queen who is ill. We know nothing about her and their friendship is not touched on at all. So why is he risking his life and these animal's lives for this relationship we know nothing about? Since that friendship is never explored I don't care what happens to these characters which makes the whole movie fucking boring.  0 out of 5 stars for Dolittle. I hope you enjoyed my review.
