Dolittle is a wildly incompetent movie showcasing a battle for the crown to be the film’s silliest performer. So, who wins? Well, I’m afraid, it’s a 20-way tie shared between scenery-chewing in-person performers and aloof voice actors.
Directed by Stephen Gaghan (Syriana) and written by Gaghan, Patrick Massett, and John Zinman, Gold is loosely based on the true story of the 1993 Bre-X mining scandal. Matthew McConaughey stars as down-and-out prospector Kenny Wells who stakes (no pun intended) his last penny on a partnership with a struggling geologist. Together, the two men venture into the jungles of Indonesia in search of gold.
