Dolittle

He's Just Not A People Person

Robert Downey Jr electrifies one of literature's most enduring characters in a vivid reimagining of the classic tale of the man who could talk to animals. After losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr John Dolittle, famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria's England, hermits himself away in Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company. But when the young queen falls gravely ill, a reluctant Dolittle sets sail on an epic adventure 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 and a raucous coterie of animal friends, including an anxious gorilla, an enthusiastic but bird-brained duck, a bickering duo of a cynical ostrich and an upbeat polar bear, and a headstrong parrot, who serves as Dolittle's most trusted advisor and confidante.
