April 29, 2009
A lot of fluff that never amounts to a good film.
November 16, 2001
Not without its amusing moments but this animated Disney feature feels hurried and somewhat frantic in its approach.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 14, 2000
Obviously a movie without new ideas, born out of a certain desperation.
December 15, 2000
Often feels long, like a half-hour cartoon stretched to feature length.
December 15, 2000
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.
December 15, 2000
The first Disney animated movie since The Little Mermaid that amounts to nothing more than a throwaway.

December 14, 2000
An amusing but predictable knock-off of themes that have been done much better.
May 20, 2003
A forgettable movie as flat as its cartoon-like characters.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

Yawn!
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
December 14, 2000
Comes off as a film lacking any distinctive edge.
December 15, 2000
Tries to entertain adults, but may prove confusing to kids.
December 15, 2000
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
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
[Frames] an entire story around a one-note, shtick-based gnat better suited for occasional scene-stealing than prolonged audience sympathy.

December 15, 2000
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.
December 15, 2000
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 24, 2001
It may be cool, but it's not great animated cinema.

December 15, 2000
A zany tonic, more upbeat and funnier than the lugubrious Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
