  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Dr. Dolittle's daughter Maya has inherited the gift (or curse) of being able to talk to animals. Off at a summer camp/dude ranch, Maya's friendshis isn't limited to the other young campers. When she finds out that the ranch is in financial trouble, she gives the cows and horses a bit of advice that will save them and their home. This sequel couldn't get Eddie Murphy to return to his role as the good doctor. And that's straight from the horse's mouth. Based on the Doctor Dolittle stories by Hugh Lofting. (Suzanne Hodges)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture exhibits a veiled color scheme that is bright, but lacking in true saturation. Images are generally sharp and nicely detailed at times, although smearing is evident. Pixelization is also noticed, but edge enhancement is not a problem. (Suzanne Hodges)
