Here is our parental guide for you:
Dolittle Parental Guide – What parents need to know
The movie is rated PG and Robert Downy Jr. transformation for this role is impressive.
ACTION – VIOLENCE
There is action and adventure. Sails are set and you can think of a pirates movie where there are cannons and knives. Plus, the pirate attitude.
LANGUAGE AND GESTURES
Nothing that we recall and can make note of. That said, the humor is categorized as “rude humor” so expect bathroom jokes.
Be on the lookout for these two intense moments:
- The oldest Willoughby will put some of us on edge as he gets in trouble easily and most times because of someone else.
- Parents of the verge of freezing to death
True that the movie is probably not meant for heavy-handed conversations with the kids. We found it to be fun to watch. Nevertheless, we can always find good conversation starters in movies and Dolittle is no exception. Here is a list for you:
- dealing with our feelings
- facing our fears
- going into the unknown
- doing what is right
- the truth is always best
Dolittle Movie Review
So, is Dolittle appropriate for children? Overall, it is. Kids 7-11 might be the ones that enjoy it the most. It is an inspiring tale for those explorers at heart. The visual appeal of the film is definitively there. In particular, the way the movie sparks imagination is evident. A bit less so, is innovation. But, it is there. Perhaps more than that, it is a good way to spark our minds to be resourceful and create solutions with what we might have at hand.
We did indeed enjoy the movie. You can’t help but love and root for all the characters. Well, not the bad ones. It is a great family movie and you can totally use it to learn more about animals or geography!
