DOLITTLE on Blu-ray April 7th!
DOLITTLE on Blu-ray is coming soon and I’m so excited about this!! In partnership with Universal Pictures, I’m excited to share details and a giveaway about this movie!
Have you seen DOLITTLE?
I can honestly say, I love this movie so much. It’s got ALL of the things that I look for in a movie, and the added bonus is that it’s family friendly and perfect for all ages.
DOLITTLE is available NOW on digital and on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand on April 7, 2020.
I’ve always loved Doctor Dolittle and I had very high hopes for this film. In fact, I was worried that my hopes were too high, I really wanted this movie to be everything I needed it to be. I remember checking Doctor Dolittle out of the library over and over again as a child.
I love the casting for this movie!
Robert Downey Jr. did such a fantastic job in his role as Doctor Dolittle! The voice casting is also amazing! SO many of our favorites and the personalities of each animal were so well developed. SO much humor and I love how they pulled it all off while still making this a family friendly movie for ALL ages. As you know, those types of movies aren’t always easy to find.
As you might know, my husband is a veterinarian, so this movie was especially fun for our family. We got a big kick out of the different character traits of the different animals and we loved the animal humor.
Robert Downey Jr. electrifies as the man who could talk to animals: DOLITTLE. After losing his wife, he hermits himself away behind the high wall of his manor but is forced to set sail on an epic adventure when the queen falls gravely ill. Helping Dolittle in search of a rare cure are his rambunctious animal friends—including Chee-Chee (Malek), an anxious, self-conscious gorilla; Dab-Dab (Octavia Spencer, The Help), an enthusiastic but bird-brained duck; the bickering duo of cynical, neurotic ostrich Plimpton (Kumail Nanjiani, The Big Sick, “Silicon Valley”) and chilly-but-chill polar bear Yoshi (Cena); as well as a headstrong parrot named Polynesia (Thompson). Catch incredible bonus content that you can only see on the 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, DVD, and Digital release showcasing the making of the film and insight to all the cast.
The adventurous tale is brought to life with an all-star cast that includes the voice talents of Academy® Award winner Emma Thompson (Last Christmas, Late Night), Academy® Award winner Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody, “Mr. Robot”), Selena Gomez (“Wizards of Waverly Place”), John Cena (“WWE”), and Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming) and more. The film is directed by Stephen Gaghan (Syriana) and produced by Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey.
My review of DOLITTLE
In partnership with Universal Pictures, I’m so excited to share my review. Our friends at Universal Pictures sent us this fun goodie box and also a giveaway (see below) so one of you can win this movie!
I’ve done a lot of movie reviews on the blog over the years. And while I’m the first to admit that I’m easily impressed, I feel like this is one movie that I would have been very critical of had it not been everything that I need it to be. The visuals were amazing! The adventure was fun. I loved the story line and how they fit excitement and humor into every twist and turn. It was goofy and silly and honestly, the animals were EVERYTHING.
I loved that Robert Downey Jr. took on this role. After a very roller coaster few years of AVENGERS (in which I loved him in) this was such a refreshing and fun role for him. I feel like he pulled it of perfectly. Sometimes we really do just need a fun family film to make us all smile, and this is definitely what this movie does.
Pretty timely, right?
