I didn’t pay to rent Dr. Dolittle 3.

Regardless of the statistical impossibilities involved, I still want my money back.

Dr. Dolittle 3 lacks even a single redeemable element. It is an ugly, pointless movie with a script, director, and series of stars that can’t make a single page of the material seem genuine.

Out with Eddie Murphy and in with Kyla Pratt, the lead from UPN’s “One on One,” who played Dr. John Dolittle’s daughter in the first two movies. By the power of movie magic, Kyla can now speak to animals despite not being able to in the previous films [An e-mail from a reader pointed to the opposite, proving a good point about how fried my brain is]. Of course, everyone at her school thinks she’s crazy, bringing her social ranking down a couple pegs. The animals cause her constant grief, with it all being capped off when the bottle her monkey uses to spike the punch at a party winds up in her hands.

Faster than you can say, “For Christ’s sake, cut her some slack. SHE CAN TALK TO ANIMALS!” Kyla’s mother sends her off to a rodeo summer camp that is run by Jud Jones (Amos) and his sexy son Bo. We’re then given a series of ohh so hilarious sequences that include bits like Kyla riding a horse backwards and, my favorite, Kyla falling into feces. That’s not all though. The summer camp is in financial trouble and it looks like Jud will have to sell the ranch to some evil white guy. Will Kyla’s special abilities help them win a rodeo competition with a grand prize that just so happens toinclude the amount needed to pay off the debt? Hmmm…

Terrible to an extent achieved by few movies. I can probably count the number of movies I’ve reviewed for this site that I’ve fast forwarded through on one hand. Dr. Dolittle 3 is one of them.

What’s a damn shame is that while Gary Busey does voice a character, he never physically appears on screen. Gary Busey as the evil white guy would’ve at least brought this up to a 1.5.

If your son or daughter actually likes this movie, you should beat them violently and without remorse. It’s the only way they’ll learn.
