Our Score
Hollywood's eccentricities are the source of weak laughs here, as Dr Dolittle's daughter Maya (a returning Kyla Pratt) takes her animal-talking skills to LA for her third solo adventure. But while the goofy-looking critters she encounters (an obese, tutu-wearing pig, a rap-hating rabbit) will have younger viewers fitfully giggling, they don't give the already two-dimensional 17-year-old much to do when a scheming, Paris Hilton-style heiress (Tegan Moss) lures her into swapping veterinary school to co-host a TV show. Consequently, this is the flimsiest in the ever-deteriorating franchise: with lame visual and verbal gags and ultra-cartoonish caricatures providing scant distraction from the barely-there plotting. It's all as vacuous and insincere as the celeb culture it's satirising and even makes Maya's obligatory life lessons feel like afterthoughts.

Summary

The daughter of the vet who can talk to animals successfully treats a wealthy heiress's depressed Chihuahua, and is rewarded by getting her own TV series showcasing her skills. However, she soon finds fame is not all it is made out to be. Comedy sequel, starring Kyla Pratt, Jason Bryden and Tegan Moss.
