DOLITTLE is a fantasy comedy adventure in which a physician who can talk to animals agrees to undertake a mission to save the life of the Queen of England.

Threat and horror

A man is threatened by a tiger which bares its teeth, snarls and swipes at him with its paw. The man is saved when a gorilla takes on the tiger in combat. A dragon breathes fire and lashes its tail at a group of men, which it also uses to attempt the crushing of man. There is also some brief threat with knives, but these scenes are fantastical and not prolonged to an undue extant, and reassurance of a safe outcome for those under threat arrives in timely fashion.

Rude humour

There is mild rude humour when it is implied that a leek is inserted into the dragon's bottom in order to clear a blockage. This leads to the dragon farting, and there are also other moments of toilet humour. A gorilla is encouraged to punch in the "low area" during a fight with a tiger. There is mild innuendo in a comment about the size of a scorpion's stinger, and some wordplay on "flipping him off" when a whale flaps its fin.

There is very mild bad language ('butt', 'blasted', 'heck', 'damn'), and some moments of very mild emotional upset as a man remembers his dead wife.
