Boring and flat remake of the Rex Harrison turkey about a doctor who finds himself endowed with the ability to talk to animals. Stupid gags like rats with gas and tigers with identity crises never achieve more than ludicrous slapstick humour, so if you’re under ten you’ll have a great time. Anyone wanting something on the level of Babe, however, will be sorely disappointed. is hilarious in the lead role, but the comedy isn’t good enough for him.
