2 1/2 out of 5 stars. It took me a while to see this and I didn't miss much. It was very formulaic based off of the other Disney films of the times and the music was meh.

While the story may be somewhat choppy, the great animation, very good voice acting, the near perfect amount of humor, steady pace, and great premise makes this film easily one of Disney's best from the early 2000s.

The Emperor's New Groove is a lightweight film, but it's consistently funny enough to make up for it.

So underrated, so funny, so enjoyable.

The Disney version of a Looney Tunes short, with so many great ideas and jokes. Boom bam baby!

One of my favorite movies as a kid, and even as an adult, it still holds up well to this day. The Emperor's New Groove is a great comedy that gives out strong laughs and a good chunk of heartfelt moments.

6/2/2017 (3): Not as good as I remembered. A silly story and only a few funny parts. Kronk was the only funny character.

The Emperor's New Groove is certainly too fast paced and predictable, but still hugely entertaining and funny from beginning to end and even frequently hilarious owing to its many unforgettable, hysterical lines. The character development is superb and all four of the main characters are quite unforgettable. It truly is one of the best animated comedies ever and one of Disney's most underrated films.

Of all the unexpected surprises, this film is definitely one of them. While the story and main protagonists might not be anything unique, the humour and style make up for anything that could be seen as less. The villains really are the best part of this film, along with its amazing comedy and constant funny jokes: not once did I find myself thinking that something wasn't funny. This is just a perfect comedy, that manages to give character and and emotion to its story and cast. This is a film no one should ignore.

This movie was originally supposed to be Kingdom of the Sun, an animated film about the old witch Yzma (Eartha Kitt) trying to summon an Incan demon god (Supai) to block out the sun and restore her youth. At the same time, the young Emperor Manco (David Spade) gets into a Prince-and-the-Pauper-type situation with his doppleganger, Patcha (Owen Wilson). Discovering their ruse, she turns the real Emperor into a llama and threatens to expose the impostor unless he helped with her plan. If they'd made that movie, it would have been another one of the great Disney classic animated features. Instead, we got The Emperor's New Groove, a mediocre comedy with a few good laughs, but no serious plot or profound issues. Disney should honestly get the original workprint and recordings for this movie, finish the voice and animation work, and get Debra Wilson to complete any voice work Eartha Kitt never got the chance to finish, so the work the original movie's creators put into it don't go to waste.

The Emperor's New Groove is my favorite film! Kuzco, Pacha, Yeezma, Kronk, and all the other characters were absolutely hilarious and that movie is fantastic.

The comedy is hilarious, the cartoony animation is top-notch, and the characters never fail to make you laugh. Easily the best animated Disney film of the 2000s.

Disney's The Emperor's New Groove is a really great animated movie that was a bit odd to have David Spade in it, but it really works. If people expect this to be a grand Disney movie, then they are going to be a bit disappointed as this is essentially a buddy road trip movie which granted, is different than the princess movies, but it's a bit weird that Disney even wanted to do that kind of genre, and it's not the last one as Disney made College Road Trip after Emperor's New Groove. David Spade is good in it and gave me a few laughs, although his character can act a bit too whiny or too selfish at times. John Goodman is great, and his character's family is pretty funny from what they got. The funniest and best part of the film, are the villains. They are just enjoyable to watch and that you kind of want to see more of them even though they are in it a lot. One thing that was unexpected for me, was of how fast the animation and the film is. It gives out a lot of detail in it which makes the jokes go more non-stop, and that brings out a lot of energy also. The characters are memorable, especially the villains, and the plot is a bit more thought out than some road trip films. The Emperor's New Groove is not the best Disney film I've seen, but it's definitely one of the funniest.

Um dos vários casos onde a dublagem brasileira - muito inspirada - eleva o filme a um novo patamar. Personagens muito carismáticos e um anti-herói hilário como protagonista garantem um ótimo passatempo.

Likeable characters, a consistently fast pace, and hysterical comedy make this a worthwhile film for the whole family to enjoy.
