ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review Dr. Dolittle: Tail to the Chief is an innocuous direct-to-video release geared for tweens. It would be easy to dismiss the film as a time-waster, but it actually has a few things going for it...There are very few poop jokes...There are zero sexual innuendos, even though Maya develops a crush on a cute intern...Simplistic though it might be, there is a worthwhile message about valuing the environment and protecting animals, even those that are not cute and cuddly...In fact, a fairly sizable chunk of this movie deals with wildlife preservation, and the presentation is simple and direct without being condescending...As for the non-environmentalist parts of the film, we get silly jokes, cute animals, appealing performances (particularly by Kyla Pratt), and a late-in-the-game nefarious plot that is foiled (by the animals) almost as quickly as it is introduced...Dr. Dolittle: Tail to the Chief eschews the bathroom and sex stuff, and while it's almost painfully silly, it has an earnest global message and well serves its intended audience. For children who really like animals, this is a particularly good bet, and the extras, though brief, are informative enough to spur discussion.
