This movie is based off of the classic 1920’s book series, Dr. Dolittle, by Hugh Lofting. John Dolittle loves animals just like his uncle, Doctor Dolittle. When John is warned that animals are in danger, he jumps into his uncle’s submarine to help. When he arrives at Dolittle Island, he learns that it has been taken over by Ramsey the Ram and his army of gorillas. With a little help from some new friends, John comes to the rescue and saves the island.
My daughters (3 and 5) really enjoyed this movie. It has a cute menagerie of animals and reflects the importance of friendship and teamwork. The movie is very colorful and good prevails over evil at the end. I think this is a good family movie and has a catchy song about animals making great friends for the kids to enjoy too. This is one title to be gladly added into our family collection.
The Voyages of Young Doctor Dolittle can be purchased wherever DVDs are sold and online through Amazon.
