I wasn’t looking forward to the latest take on the Dr. Dolittle books. I read most of them when I was a boy. They were kind of whimsical, while the various film versions were not. The latest version, starring Robert Downey, Jr., was better than I thought it would be. Downey, using a British accent, is natural as he talks to various animals. It is the actors who voice the animals that really make the movie. They are funny, with differing personalities. Dolittle and crew go off on a quest. They encounter Antonio Banderas as a middle eastern ruler who has it in for Dolittle. Much better than I thought it would be. It may be out of theaters by now, so see it when it is on Netflix.
