Dr. Dolittle 2 [WS] [Special Edition] [DVD] [2001]

The doctor is in once again in this hit sequel Dr. Dolittle 2 starring Eddie Murphy. Fox has done commendable work on this disc, making sure that the 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer looks clean, clear, and nearly perfect. No grain, dirt, or edge enhancement is spotted throughout the entire film. The audio is equally as good, featuring a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. While this is not really an effects-heavy feature, overall the speakers are utilized often by way of background music or dialogue. All aspects of the 5.1 track are clear of any distortion or hiss. Also included on this disc is a Dolby Digital 2.0 track in English and French, as well as English and Spanish subtitles. Dr. Dolittle 2 is packed to the brim with special features. Included on this disc is a funny screen- specific commentary track by director Steve Carr and co-producer Heidi Santelli, a "The Making of Dr. Dolittle 2" featurette, "Bear Necessities: A Kid's Guide to Grizzlies," "Making Movie Magic With Rhythm and Hues," and "Wild on the Set With Tank the Bear." Taken together these short behind-the-scenes features give the viewer some insights into how the film was made, plus an interesting look into the characters (both human and animal). Two extended sequences are available with optional commentary, plus some storyboard sequences that don't offer a lot to the proceedings. Finally, there is a music video by Product G & B featuring Wyclef, a promo spot for the soundtrack, two non-anamorphic widescreen theatrical trailers, and no less than 12 TV spots for Dr. Dolittle 2. This edition of Dr. Dolittle 2 should please fans in all areas of the disc, even if you don't own a talking dog or lizard.

Synopsis

Dr. Dolittle 2
Eddie Murphy returns as a doctor with a gift for talking to animals in this sequel to a box-office blockbuster. Murphy is John Dolittle, who this time around attempts to save an endangered Pacific forest from lumber industry forces by reintegrating an endangered species of bear back into the wild. Unfortunately, Dolittle's candidate is a performing bear (voice of Steve Zahn) with a taste for junk food and no natural skills in the wild. If Dolittle is going to save the species and its habitat, he must get him to mate with a fussy female (Lisa Kudrow) by providing lessons in winning the heart of the opposite sex. Dr. Dolittle's problems are compounded by a local animal work stoppage and furry woodland creatures who have organized their own version of the Mafia. Norm Macdonald returns as the voice of Lucky the Dog, co-starring with Kevin Pollak, Jeffrey Jones, Michael Rapaport, Molly Shannon, Reni Santoni, and Kristen Wilson. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi
