Dolittle is a great family movie, perfect for those in-between ages – you know, the “I’m not a little kid” but not quite a “big kid” yet stage. This movie, starring Robert Downey Jr, is enjoyable for parents as well! The voice cast is highly recognizable, featuring Emma Thompson(Last Christmas), Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody), Selena Gomez (Wizards of Waverly Place), John Cena (WWE), and Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming) and more!
The bonus features are always my favorite when bringing a movie home. Dolittle is choc full of fun, exploring the different ways Robert Downey Jr brings Dolittle to life. I wish there had been a few more! Check them out:
- TALK TO THE ANIMALS – Dolittle is surrounded by a motley cast of characters. Take a peek at all the fun the cast had giving each of the animals their unique voice.
- ROBERT DOWNEY JR. & HARRY: MENTOR AND MENTEE – Acting opposite a legendary actor like Robert Downey Jr. can be an intimidating experience, but Harry Collett handled it like a pro. See the unique bond the two actors formed on-set, and how Downey took the film’s young co-star under his wing.
- BECOMING THE GOOD DOCTOR – See the process of how this team of talented artists brought this film to life, and how Robert Downey Jr. transformed into the iconic Dolittle.
- ANTONIO BANDERAS: PIRATE KING – Antonio Banderas discusses what attracted him to the project, his experiences working with Robert Downey Jr., and what he brought to the role of King Rassouli.
- THE WICKED DR. MÜDFLY – Who is the nefarious villain Dr. Blair Müdfly? Michael Sheen dives into his character’s motivations for being Dolittle’s foil.
- A MOST UNUSUAL HOUSE – It takes a special home to accommodate humans and animals alike. Explore the unique rooms and modifications that allow Dolittle to house anyone or anything – big or small.
Dolittle is the perfect movie to bring home and enjoy as a family. There is humor, mild adventure and more. I promise it is a cheesy, feel good movie, with great music, too! Sia performs “Original” for the end credits.
