There are not many tween girl friendly DVD out there. The Dr. Dolittle franchise is proving to be a solid choice for any girl who loves animals and seeing a resourceful, intelligent girl get in and out of minor trouble using her skills and brain. Million Dollar Mutt, the second Maya Dolittle DVD after Tail To The Chief, is a pleasant family movie DVD that can be enjoyed again and again unless you are offended by dog related potty jokes.
In Dr. Dolittle Million Dollar Mutts, Maya Dolittle (Kyla Pratt) has two weeks to go before starting veterinary school. She is spotted by famous Hollywood heiress and teen TV star Tiffany Monaco (Tegan Moss) who asks her to help her dog out of its depression.
Monaco is a cross between Elle of Legally Blonde and Paris Hilton without the crazies.Monaco needs a career boost and figures Maya’s animal talking skills may be what she and TV land are looking for. Maya falls in love with an actor and the idea of having her own animal talk show. Lucky “I’m the one who put the lic in frolic” falls in love with a Lassie clone.
The animal talk show gets in the way of Maya going to veterinarian school so something has to happen to get here back to her dream. The showdown between the agent and the animals is fun and goes backstage of few movies.
Million Dollar Mutts is not a big money production so the special effects for the animal are basic. This takes absolutely nothing away from this Dr. Dolittle DVD. Kyla Pratt is a good actress and her Maya Dolittle character a smart kind hearted role model for any tween. The story itself is pretty good and features some good sight and verbal gags.
Million Dollar Mutts is a fun, easy to watch, viewer friendly movie.
