More or less a variation of "Doctor Dolittle," this comedy casts Kevin James as the title character, whose decision to seek another job - prompted by a desire to improve his love life - panics the talking animals who have been in his care.
They conspire to keep him around, and if they sound familiar, there's good reason; voices are supplied by Adam Sandler (also one of the film's producers), Cher, Sylvester Stallone and Nick Nolte. James also is among the writers and producers of the picture, which includes Rosario Dawson and Leslie Bibb in its human cast. DVD extras: three "making-of" documentaries; deleted scenes; outtakes. *** (PG: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
