$175 million dolittle getting even worse reviews than cats

Someone call a vet! Universal Pictures and animals simply don’t mix. The studio that just gave us the much derided bomb, “Cats,” is about to die another day with “Dolittle.” The movie cost $175 million and may not make $20 million this weekend!

The remake of “Dr. Dolittle” stars Robert Downey, Jr in one of his rare non-“Avengers” movie in a decade. The former Oscar nominee for “Chaplin” should be making great serious films now, not this fluff. (He’s capable of winning an Oscar with the right material.)


A load of celebrities including his “Spider Man” protege Tom Holland voice various animals in the new movie. But it doesn’t help. Every review is a pan, or worse. So far the movie has a 17 on Rotten Tomatoes, and it’s sinking.

One problem is that Downey for some reason speaks in a Welsh accent, something approaching it. Reviews note that the film had to be re-recorded to fix his accent, and that the result is a mouth moving out of sync.


“Superficial charm can’t save a film with poor characterization as well as a bizarre and ultimately disappointing lead performance,” reads one blog called Culture Vulture.


Slant: “#Dolittle‘s inability to completely develop any of its characters reduces the film to all pomp and no circumstance.”


Another blogger: “Just when I thought Dolittle couldn’t get any less funny or idiotic, Robert Downey Jr. sticks his arms up a dragon’s a—–e. And I do mean that literally.”


Universal can still hold its head high. Sam Mendes’ “1917” may win the Oscar for Best Picture. You have good days and bad.

13% on RT? Is this serious. The movie seems like a lot of fun for families. I have no kids & no interest in seeing this, but it can't be THAT bad

If this is a kids movie all that sh*t shouldn't matter. But I think dude needs to stick to dramas like he did in the good old days

Cosign I came in to say this, that's why fans hate entertainers because they have talent and get paid well but then get bored playing the same character until that low money and less fame and irrelevancy all hit after a few years. Remember ugly a*s Daniel Craig said he would rather slit his wrist than play james bond again and that was 2 movies ago.

RDJ will miss the love and loyalty and worship he gets from mcu fans. Also people a*sume he cant run out of money but if he wants to live a certain lifestyle than anything is possible.
