|Based on the "Doctor Dolittle" stories by Hugh Lofting|
This delightful rendition of the Doctor Dolittle story, last seen as a Broadway play and a 1954 film, features Eddie Murphy as a mild-mannered people doctor who rediscovers his natural ability to talk to the animals (DeGeneres plays Dolittle's canine buddy from boyhood), a talent he attempts to hide from his family and colleagues. Murphy plays the straight man; it's the motley crew of animals who do the wisecracking here. Among the four-legged and feathered creatures Dolittle befriends: a dog (McDonald), a raccoon (Reubens), his daughter's guinea pig (Rock) and a tiger (Brooks).
