"D" is Doctor Dolittle

I grew up reading all the Doctor Dolittle books and adored them, and IMO neither the Eddie Murphy version nor the Rex Harrison version come close to the quality of the books.

Leslie, this game is a GREAT idea and one of the best parts is knowing (even without looking it up) that an answer hasn't been played yet, because each year is different.

==comment==

Not to be confused with the horrible horror movie of the same name that came out a year earlier, although according to critics, this one was pretty horrible, too.



==aside to Clarissa and everyone else==

I am glad you are enjoying the game and yes, I had the same thought...no need to check the answers list! Everyone, as we get into the more obscure movies, please take a second to double check the year in IMDb. I have noticed there are discrepancies in years between IMDb, rottentomatoes.com, and boxofficemojo, and IMDb is the final source for verifying dates for the game. Thanks!
