Storyline

Dr. John Dolittle the beloved doctor is back, but this time around he plays cupid to bumbling circus bear Archie as he's so smitten by a Pacific Western bear female, Ava. Dr. Dolittle must help a group of forest creatures to save their forest. But with the aid of his mangy, madcap animal friends, Dr. Dolittle must teach Archie the ways of true romance in time to save his species and his home before their habit is gone. So John held a meeting for every animal in the forest to not give up without a fight no matter what kind of animal expression they have and everyone agrees to do it and save their home.

Trivia

Pepito, the chameleon is inside a box that Dr. Dolittle presents to his daughter, maya. Although it looks as though Charisse is taking the chameleon from inside the box, the shot of the chameleon was taken ahead of time and was actually sitting on a branch. The trainer handed the actress the chameleon and she pretends she is lifting it up from the box. The trainer retrieved the animal after the scene was over. When Charisse shakes the unopened present, the box is empty. For almost all of Pepito's scenes the trainer put the chameleon inside the prop or on the couch, floor, table, etc. and the actors would pick the animal up and set it down. The trainer was waiting off camera to retrieve the chameleon and reward it with an edible treat and his own comfortable cage. See more »

Goofs

When Doctor Dolittle is visiting Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin's TV set in Australia, the animal is presented as an alligator (which it is) but there are only crocodiles in Australia. To add insult to injury, the alligator has an Australian accent. See more »

If you like these kind of movies, then its funny. My wife loves these kinds of movie, and enjoyed this. Its amazing how well they can train bears, some of the stunts are incredible. The voice overs couldn't be done better. My opinion of the film is its cute, but not many surprises in this one. I laughed at this film, and comedy is the hardest thing to do, but I did not find this better the average comedy. Its funny, but not p**s your pants funny.
