Dr. Dolittle

Continuity mistake: When he has the accident after hitting the dog, there is a big very noticeable dent in his truck. After he leaves the camp place it is gone and never seen again.

Factual error: Dr. Dolittle is driving through San Francisco with a cup of Dunkin' Donuts coffee - there are no Dunkin' Donuts in San Francisco.

Continuity mistake: When John returns from the hospital, Maya is sitting down, then stands up. The camera then goes onto John, then back to Maya, then she stands up again.

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.

Trivia: The scene where Dr Dolittle awakes to find the guinea pig in the bed with him looks like an homage to the horse's head scene in The Godfather. The way he screams, and the way the camera cuts to an external shot, is an exact copy.

Trivia: Archer Dolittle's name is never spoken in the film. It is only mentioned in the end credits.
