Continuity mistake: When Dr. Dolittle was committed and talking to Blaine (and several other spots in the movie), he was very obviously wearing a very bad wig to try and look like braids. You can tell it's his own hair in the scenes where he is talking to the patients and/or his partner.

Continuity mistake: When Lucky the dog is in Dolittle's car, he says "Tree, tree, tree" and in doing so, puts his paw on the button and gets his head stuck in the window. At this point you can see there is nothing next to Lucky's head, but in the very next shot he has placed his left paw on the window.

Continuity mistake: When the pigeon defecates on the doctor's face, the poo falls on the side of his mouth. Half a second later the mouth is clean and the poo is all over his chin, nowhere near where it fell before, so it couldn't have slid down there.

Trivia

Eddie Murphy had a big problem while working on this movie: He is very squeamish about most animals. It is even so serious that he flatly refused to do a scene involving an alligator. Hence, most shots with animals were done via blue-screen technique.
