Movie Info

Miguel de Cervantes' classic tale of an errant but idealistic knight gets retold from a new perspective in this animated comedy. In Donkey Xote, Rucio (voice of Luis Posada) is a donkey owned by Sancho Panza (voice of Andreu Buenafuente), and Rucio offers to tell us the inside scoop about his master and his partner Don Quixote (voice of Jose Luis Gil). According to the donkey, Don Quixote was actually a handsome gentleman who longed for the hand of the beautiful Dulcinea (Sonia Ferrer). However, in this version of the story, Dulcinea has a hard time choosing between the knight and his loyal sidekick Sancho Panza, and their rivalry leads them on a journey across Spain to Barcelona as they vie for the beautiful woman's affections. Donkey Xote was directed by Jose Pozo, who previously brought a classic tale of Spain's past to the screen with 2003's El Cid: The Legend.

the biggest stumbling block is that this movie seems to have been generated from a simple pun

Audience Reviews for Donkey Xote


Yes, this movie is terrible and knew that going in. Worth a watch, it has a few laughs. But not because the films jokes are actually funny, more at how bad the jokes are. However Don's dream sequence (albeit very short) is terrific in capturing his legend and look almost painting like. Also, the design of the characters is unique. The idea is terrific basing it around the idea that Don wasn't crazy. However the film battles itself with what it wants to get across and being immature to make kids laugh

Oh! Wow that is a terrible movie, end up hating her. And the main failure of the whole film is absolutely no point, everything is all bad and falls into the boring and tedious. The story is quite distorted to the point where you feel ridiculous. Just a failed attempt to take a story that pretended to be funny, to a movie.

I was very skeptical about this movie, but it turned out that I actually found it pretty enjoyable. I don't think this is the kind of animated film that young kids can enjoy, but as a fan of Man of La Mancha I found this pretty amusing. I doubt I'd be likely to watch it again, but it's definitely worth watching once.
