DIRECTOR: BETTY THOMAS
CAST: EDDIE MURPHY, ALBERT BROOKS, CHRIS ROCK, NORM MACDONALD
After a close call auto accident, Eddie Murphy’s San Francisco surgeon John Dolittle rediscovers a boyhood ability to conversate with animals, but his “gift” soon proves more of a curse, as he becomes the hapless confidante of a menagerie of beasts with voices provided by Albert Brooks, Chris Rock, Brian Doyle-Murray, Norm MacDonald, and more. Working from the same Hugh Lofting stories that made a flop for Rex Harrison, Murphy produced one of the most endearing films of his late ‘90s blockbuster renaissance.
