Dr. Dolittle 2

Rated NR

Sequel: an unnecessary presentation for money-grubbing movie executives and desperate actors. This superfluous addendum to the 1998 kids' flick is no exception. Funnyman Eddie Murphy returns to converse with the critters so he can play matchmaker for a cynical circus bear (voiced by Steve Zahn) and a furry female (Lisa Kudrow) in order to save their wooded habitat from some logging lunatics on a deforestation binge. After studying the Nature Channel, getting toilet training tips and being discouraged by Hannibal the Hog, Dolittle gets some helpful paws and claws from an alcoholic monkey, a chameleon in denial, Ahnuld the Intimidator and other four-legged friends. This 90-minute sitcom does manage some subtle charm and mild humor, even from the big-breasted Cosby kid with an attitude (Raven-Symone). However, Murphy and his animal-talking talents hopefully will do little in the future.
