Eddie Murphy talks bull - as well as goat, sheep, snake and ape - as the vet who can talk to the animals in this comedy update for Hugh Lofting's classic children's characters. As news spreads of Dolittle's linguistic abilities, animals from rats to horses beat a path to his door... making it difficult for his dodgy partner (Oliver Platt) to sell the practice to greedy developers. A cheeky hit that'll get everyone's tongues - and tails - wagging.
