Dr Doo- too- lit­tle

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Dvds -

TALK­ING an­i­mal flicks are nor­mally best left for younger au­di­ences and there’s a rea­son why they don’t get blended with the more grown- up and less kid­die rom- com genre – it’s just not a great fit. Such is the case in this big- hearted but flawed crit­ter com­edy that just can’t make the mix work. It takes place in a zoo where a pop­u­lar zookeeper ( Kevin James) has just had his heart bro­ken and is look­ing for a more fi­nan­cially re­ward­ing job to be­come more ap­peal­ing to the ladies. To stop him from leav­ing, the an­i­mals de­cide to re­veal their talk­ing ways and try to help him win back his girl­friend. There is some comedic spark, thanks to the an­i­mal busi­ness, but it only rarely catches and the lit­tle ones are likely to get pretty bored by the rest of it. Ex­tras: ★★ ½ The ham­min’ about con­tin­ues in the ex­tras with a lengthy gag reel, plus there’s a se­ries of fea­turettes on cre­at­ing the vis­ual ef­fects, a look at the film’s furry co- stars and a spe­cial be­hind- the- suit short on go­rilla star Bernie.
