Doctor Dolittle

152 minutes 1967

Whimsical fluff (1967) that weighs in on the far side of 50 tons; it's so clumsy and pounding that taking a child to it might be grounds for a visit from family services. Rex Harrison retains a bit of his innate charm as the Victorian doctor who chats with midgets in animal suits, talks his way through a grating assortment of Leslie Bricusse songs, and heads for the South Seas in search of a substandard Muppet named "the Great Pink Sea Snail." Anthony Newley, Samantha Eggar, and Richard Attenborough are among the other responsible parties; Richard Fleischer, a long, sad way from the sharp films noirs he specialized in, is the director.
