When I was little, I lived on a farm. I used to spend a lot of my day wandering around the barn, talking with the animals. In my very young mind, they could understand me. I had some awesome conversations with Sweet William the Pig and Donnie, my sheep. Little did I know that all these years later, Dolittle would teach me how to communicate with animals!
In this strange world out there, it’s fun to have a moment of brevity and I hope this movie will help! It’s out on digital now, and hits the stores for purchase on DVD and Blu-ray on April 7. Starring Robert Downey Jr., it’s a fun, family movie that came out at a great time.
