Dolittle

Stephen Gaghan, USA, 2020o

Britain in the 19th century: Since the death of his wife the once famous Dr John Dolittle lives like a hermit. Only his animals keep him company behind the high walls of his estate. When the young Queen Victoria is struck by a mysterious illness, Dolittle reluctantly embarks on a journey to find a cure.

Im Unterschied zu Eddie Murphy, der den Arzt, der mit Tieren sprechen kann, in früheren Verfilmungen der Geschichte mit Slapstick-Overdrive spielte, stattet Robert Downey Jr. die Rolle jetzt mit melancholisch müder Komik aus, was ja zunächst mal eine gute Nachricht ist. Leider herrscht um ihn herum nur das halbherzige Chaos schludriger Dramaturgie, alberner Komik und papierdünner Charakterzeichnung, ein Chaos, in dem auch tolle Schauspieler wie Antonio Banderas und Jim Broadbent untergehen. Man könnte meinen, Stephen Gaghan, immerhin mal Urheber des intelligenten Öl-Thrillers "Syriana" habe sich ein teures Späßchen für seine Kinder geleistet.
