Dr. Dolittle

A remake of the 1967 Richard Fleischer film of the same name, about an animal doctor whose patients' barks, squeals, and meows turn into actual human voices, stirring up the practice. Eddie Murphy updates the role as a San Francisco doctor who as a boy was looked upon strangely by everyone when he claimed he could talk to animals. Now an adult, a near wreck stirs something in him and suddenly he can understand the animals again, whether he wants to or not.
