Cinema Crazed

A lot of fluff that never amounts to a good film.

Movie Boeuf

Not without its amusing moments but this animated Disney feature feels hurried and somewhat frantic in its approach.

Obviously a movie without new ideas, born out of a certain desperation.

Often feels long, like a half-hour cartoon stretched to feature length.

Feels like some lame, focus-grouped attempt by a bunch of people who have grown hopelessly middle-aged to make themselves hip with the kids.

The first Disney animated movie since The Little Mermaid that amounts to nothing more than a throwaway.

An amusing but predictable knock-off of themes that have been done much better.

A forgettable movie as flat as its cartoon-like characters.

Comes off as a film lacking any distinctive edge.

Laura Reiley

Tries to entertain adults, but may prove confusing to kids.

Duane Dudek
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Every new Disney film comes with a ton of baggage, and begs to be compared with the high standards of the studio's roster of animated classics. By this perhaps unfair assessment, it falls short.

December 15, 2000

Top Critic IconTop Critic

The animation and conception of the film seldom approach the exalted and imaginative level of Disney's better efforts in the genre.

December 15, 2000
Mary Kalin-Casey

[Frames] an entire story around a one-note, shtick-based gnat better suited for occasional scene-stealing than prolonged audience sympathy.

| Original Score: 2.5/4

Jeff Vice
Deseret News, Salt Lake City

The plot here is so threadbare and the characters so badly developed (or in a couple of cases, completely undeveloped) that both begin to fade from memory as soon as the film is over.

An audience dominated by young children was disconcertingly quiet during a preview screening.

The Emperor's New Groove has no clothes, and not much else either.

It may be cool, but it's not great animated cinema.

A zany tonic, more upbeat and funnier than the lugubrious Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
