Parents need to know that Dolittle is a kid-friendly adventure comedy starring Robert Downey, Jr. as a doctor who can communicate with animals. It diverges from author Hugh Lofting's original book, The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle (as well as previous movie adaptations from 1967 and 1998) into its own story. Here, Doolittle is a hermit following the death of his wife, who was a brave explorer. While the overall story is told in the spirit of fun and adventure, the movie deals with themes of loss and abandonment, overcoming grief through helping others, and finding a family among friends. While communication, compassion, and teamwork are all on display, there's also more violence and peril than you might expect in a family film -- including knives, cannons, guns, poison, and animal attacks -- but much of it feels cartoonish. A hunting accident plays out with an anti-gun sentiment: A warm-hearted human character accidentally shoots a (hilariously dramatic) squirrel and then sets out to save its life. While there's some gently rude humor, like animal bottoms and farts, parents may be most shocked by a scene in which the doctor appears to unblock a creature's intestinal tract through its anus (gratefully, not on camera). One use of "damn."
Doctor Dolittle was doomed from the start. The studio originally wanted to reunite Harrison with Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, the songwriting team behind My Fair Lady who knew how to best work with the fact that Harrison literally could not sing. Unfortunately, Loewe had just retired from writing musicals and Lerner was a notorious procrastinator, so he was fired from the movie after stretching out the process across a year. Instead, the English composer Leslie Bricusse was brought on, in large part thanks to the success of his Broadway musical Stop the World - I Want to Get Off. He would later go on to write the music for Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and two of the best Bond themes. While Bricusse was busy working on his treatment, Harrison decided to be a d**k and exert his power over the production at its earliest stage. For the part of Bumpo, the chieftain of the island that Dolittle is washed ashore on, Sammy Davis Jr. was hired, which Harrison opposed because he did not think that the Rat Pack legend was a real actor. Harrison looked like he was ready to walk, so the producers tried to replace him with Christopher Plummer, a solid 50 years before it happened with Kevin Spacey. Suddenly, Harrison wanted to stay but the producers still had to pay Plummer his full salary. Things were obviously off to a great start, and all before filming even began.
