In every generation there’s a Dr. Dolittle.


For Millennials and Gen X’ers it was Eddie Murphy. For Baby Boomers, it was Rex Harrison.


For this Generation Z, the doctor who can understand animals is played by Robert Downey Jr. His animals are voiced by Rami Malek, Ralph Fiennes, Emma Thompson, Tom Holland, Kumail Nanjiani, Marion Cotillard, and John Cena.


The new film opens on Jan. 17, but you can see it before that. I have family four packs of tickets to a morning screening at Regal Gateway on Jan. 11.


Send me an email, nvillalpando@statesman.com, include your name and phone number and put "Dolittle" in the subject line. I’ll pick winners on Jan. 9.
