Dr. Dolittle: Million Dollar Mutts (also known as Dr. Dolittle 5) is a 2009 American comedy film, starring Kyla Pratt and Norm Macdonald. It was released on May 19, 2009 and like its predecessor, Dr. Dolittle: Tail to the Chief (2008), was a direct-to-DVD release.
It is the fifth and final film in the Dr. Dolittle remake series before the 2020 reboot, and is the final Dr. Dolittle film to be distributed by 20th Century Fox and the third film in the series not to feature Eddie Murphy as Doctor Dolittle or Raven-Symoné as Charisse Dolittle, though they are mentioned in the film. Pratt and MacDonald are the only cast members to appear in all five films.
Maya Dolittle (Kyla Pratt) thinks she doesn't have to spend 7 years in college to be a vet because she can talk to animals. While taking a walk with Lucky (voice of Norm MacDonald), she helps a cat on a tree by talking to it. She gets discovered and Tiffany Monaco (Tegan Moss), a Hollywood star, brings her to L.A. to help her little puppy, who turns out to be a male. Soon, Maya and Tiffany began creating their own show, The Animal Talkers. Maya also meets Brandon Booker (Brandon Jay McLaren) who is her love interest. Maya soon finds out the show isn't about helping animals and goes back home to study being a vet. She also finds out Brandon is at her school too. Meanwhile, Monkey (voice of Phil Proctor) is out in L.A. searching for his big break but quits because he wants to help Maya.
