Dolittle did a little too much!

Robert Downey, Jr. talks to the animals and hits a career-low in cinematic chaos that will leave children sad and confused, and adults scratching their heads. And really,  what’s with the accent?

My nostalgia is my cub’s adventure!

The Lion King was my absolute favorite while growing up. I probably saw it at least 50 times, enjoying the animation, songs, the iconic ideology of Hakuna Matata but above all- the character that was Mufasa.
