Dr. John Dolittle, physician in small-town Victorian England remarkably inept at dealing with people, remakes himself as a veterinarian on the suggestion of his parrot, who also teaches him the various animal languages. After a run-in with the law over a misunderstanding, he and his cohorts set sail for a legendary floating island in search of the Great Pink Sea Snail. Won Oscars for Best Special Effects and Best Original Song, "Talk to the Animals"; received 7 additional nominations including Best Picture, Best Cinematography, and Best Score.
