The only reason for most harsh reviews about the movie is maybe because RDJ fans don’t want to see their fave actor in and as any other role other than Ironman. RDJ has created a brand new history for the MCU character and given it a higher rank of love ever since ironman hit theaters. But for someone who admires good acting and splendid performance by all casts especially RDJ himself Dr. Dolitte is an amazing output and a creative look that shows us what more he can offer us fans, with this beautifully portrayed movie. Even thou you can see little hints of Ironman and the great Sherlock Holmes well done to RDJ for doing a marvelous job on bringing Dr.Dolittle back.

My Ratings: 4/5
- For RDJ comeback since Endgame
- Beautiful Storyline
- Awesome CGI and Visual Effects
- Best screenplay adaption
Though I am not that die hard fan of Iron man as compared to other Avengers, but I admire Robert Downey Jr. as an actor. He had put up a great effort and the portrayal was satisfactory.
This movie has a combination of comedy (like RDJ being funny, one line punches by the Animals) and tragedy (the story of Dolittle’s wife’s fate and Dolittle being isolated for years makes the tone slightly dark.) But overall, the story is highly light toned.
The chemistry between the humans and animals are properly depicted and gives us life lessons.
The voice actors for the animals are also really nice. WWE superstar John Cena, Oscar winners like Marion Cottilard (La vie en rose) and Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody), singer Selena Gomez, Kumail Nanjiani and the best part, RDJ and Tom Holland again reunited since May 2019 in Endgame.
I don’t know why this children-oriented movie with a very beautiful story and visual effects getting so many negative reviews. I didn’t find anything bad about this movie. I just deducted one star due to my personal psychology that it is difficult to see Robert Downey Jr. in any other character other than Tony Stark. Otherwise, the movie is worth watching and will bring smiles and emotions while watching.
