      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Dolittle may be enough to entertain very young viewers, but they deserve better than this rote adaptation's jumbled story and stale humor.

      Tara Brady Irish Times This nothingness doesn't even have the good grace to be a bad movie. The low-point of every single career involved. Rated: 1/5 Feb 13, 2020 Full Review Clarisse Loughrey Independent (UK) Dolittle ought to have ... done less. Rated: 2/5 Feb 12, 2020 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) It's symptomatic of an awkward, unwieldy movie that has lots of material to show you and lots of surface distractions, but nothing at all to say. Rated: 2/5 Feb 10, 2020 Full Review Mihir Fadnavis Firstpost Robert Downey Jr tries too hard, fully aware he's signed up for a tonally inconsistent train wreck. Rated: 1/5 May 15, 2024 Full Review Manuel São Bento MSB Reviews All in all, Dolittle is a massive fail at all levels. It was meant to be one of the worst movies of the year, and it undoubtedly accomplished this goal. Rated: D- Jul 24, 2023 Full Review Jane Freebury The Canberra Times (Australia) It's not hilarious but it is cheerful, good to look at, and has surely at least managed a pass. Rated: 3/5 Aug 23, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
