Common Sense Says
Kid-friendly talking animal musical comedy is fun but dated.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this Doctor Dolittle is very family-friendly for its lively songs, fuzzy animals, dancing, and cavorting. But watch out for some dated stereotypes, including that of a "Red Indian" called Long Arrow who sends an illiterate message along with an animal he's captured for Doolittle. Women also get second-class status, which is evident when Dolittle claims that he treated Emma "very well," even though she's a female. Young children will appreciate the fun and silliness but may be impatient with the slow first half.
