After a fender bender, Dr. John Dolittle (Eddie Murphy) gets back his childhood ability to converse with animals.

When Dolittle's strange behavior catches the attention of his wife, Lisa (Kristen Wilson), he winds up in a mental institution. Luckily, he has some animal friends to help him out of his hairy situation.
