I cry again because it's not Sherlock 3, but I suppose the ship has sailed.

Lone wolf? Hah! "Lone" wolves die out of hunger and loneliness. The wolf needs the pack, and the pack needs the wolf.

Its almost appropriate that this film is coming out after a 10 year hiatus - just like in the books!

[up] Especially since in the books, the hiatus occurred after a showdown between Holmes and Moriarty, which happened in the 2nd film.

13% on Rotten Tomatoes, actually worse than Cats (20%).

Well apparently, the climax features a scene where Dr. Dolittle pulls human remains out of a dragon's butt.

I don't think this film was aspiring to be much, even putting aside the $175 million budget.

The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle was one of my favourite books when I was a kid. I figured the movie was going to be bad but, man, I'm still disappointed.

There's also a scene where he gives a squirrel CPR, but I've seen someone say they make a BJ joke. Can't confirm that one, and I'm not paying full price to see it.

...between the dragon ass thing, the BJ joke, and squirrel CPR, this is sounding disturbingly like Freddy Got Fingered levels of bad.

[up][up][up][up][up]Eh, the Eddie Murphy movie did alright. Not good exactly, but not quite a disaster either.

Between this debacle and Cats, Universal really needs to take a long hard look at itself.

I have not seen the movie, but the somewhat spoilery reviews I saw all stated that the climax of the movie is Dolittle cleaning the guts of a dragon who farts on him. While it sounds pretty stupid, it also is a bit ironic considering the main supernatural creature in the book was the Pushmi-Pullyu, an animal with two heads and no rear end thus literally unable to fart.

One random bit of trivia about that — everything he pulls out was added in post. The bagpipes are a noticeable Special Effects Failure — you can see fringes around his hands. It's odd because it would have been so easy to shoot it with real props. It's possible they changed their mind about what he pulled out after shooting the scene.

Apparently at one point it was "a boulder-sized stool", and it's claimed to have been Downey's idea to add the dragon enema scene.

In a year of box office bombs, I hope this one stays on top of that list.

Well the film did little. tongue

I've picked up many professions over the years. I've been a whore, a soldier, a singer, a geographer, a criminal. Whatever has seemed best.
