Fresh off itsCatsflop, Universal was hoping for a good start to the new year – but sadly, going by the first reviews ofDolittle, things do not look too promising.

                                                                                                                                                                                                     

The new film starsRobert Downey Jrin his first post –Avengersrole as the fictional veterinarian with the ability to speak to animals.

                                                                                                                                                                                                        

Despite its all-star cast – Emma Thompson, Marion Cotillard, Rami Malek, Tom Holland and Octavia Spencer all provide voice work – the film is getting absolutely panned by critics.

In fact, its score on review aggregate siteRotten Tomatoesis currently sits at a meagre per cent, that’s eight per cent less thanCats, which was actually given zero stars

last month.                                                                                                                                                                                                        

Some people are saying thatDolittleis worse.Voxcritic Alissa Wilkinson wrote: “Dolittleis unconscionably bad, and not in a way that’s fun or interesting. If you want that, go seeCats. This is extremely horrible. ”
