When unscrupulous human developers threaten to destroy their forest, outraged animals turn to their famous doctor friend for help in this sequel to the popular Eddie Murphy comedy. In order to help save the animal habitat, Dolittle must play Cupid to Ava, a lone endangered bear living in the condemned forest, and Archie, a city-dwelling, wise-cracking, fast food-loving, circus-performing bear. Unfortunately, it's hardly a love connection for the mismatched bears, as Ava is unimpressed by Archie's bumbling antics. With the aid of his mangy, madcap animal friends, Dolittle must teach this overgrown teddy the ways of true romance in time to save his species and his home!

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Although there are laughs to be had in Dr. Dolittle 2, its preoccupation with toilet humor and Murphy's restrained performance makes this a missed opportunity.

Eddie Murphy's animal antics are fun, with some potty humor.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Dr. Dolittle 2 is the sequel to the 1998 movie in which Eddie Murphy plays a veterinarian who can communicate with animals. There's quite a bit of bathroom humor throughout, such as jokes centered on defecation and urination, and in one instance a dog licking his anus. A chameleon announces, "I'm gonna disappear like your baby daddy." A bear, looking at photographs, asks, "Got any action shots?" A turtle is given a Viagra-like drug. A rabbit, before scurrying off, says, "Let's fool around." A monkey is drunk on wine. There is also some mild profanity throughout, including "ass," "damn," "hell," and "suck." There are also some product placements.
