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.

This is pretty minor Disney but it's delivered with aplomb. It's pretty funny and engaging but probably just lacks an emotional hook or a character you can truly latch on to. Good fun though, my son enjoyed it as well.

Probably one of the most genuinely funny additions to the Disney arsenal, thanks to some wonderful voice acting and comical slap stick routines, the script and characters elevate this one despite being on the sillier side. Oh well, it's a kids movie.

One of the most funniest Disney movies! The Emperor's New Groove is pretty much the comedy gold of Disney.

Thoroughly hilarious and refreshingly playful, one can see why this film is considered a classic of the Disney Dork Age. It strays greatly from Disney's expected style of storytelling, but does so in such a way that effectively creates a delightful story and memorably amusing characters.

The Emperors New Groove is one of my favourite animated movies ever, and one I can rewatch at any time. Its plot may not be as deep and compelling as in other Disney movies, but the laughs are big, the characters are fresh and the world is very interesting.

Disney forgets about its dull princess movies for a while and brings us a family comedy with smart humor, likeable characters, and fast-paced animation

Carries exactly the right tone for its basis, and actually gives some good laughs throughout.

The Emperor's New Groove marks the end of the Disney Renaissance, ending a beautiful set of animated masterpieces with a disappointing, actually kind of odd take on a classic tale plagued with bad chemistry and undesirable, repetitive comedic elements.
Kuzco, a self centered emperor of a South American land, is backstabbed by his recently fired advisor Yzma and her bumbling crony Kronk as they plot to poison him. They instead transform him into a llama, as a goodhearted peasant attempts to help a bossy and arrogant Kuzco return to his former self all whilst trying to save his home from destruction and trying to find a bit of good in Kuzco.
The Emperor's New Groove, from minute one, seems very off color and soon grows tedious in many aspects. The film is, in a word, unlikable. Its characters, even the main ones, have such unrootable and disappointingly maddening personalities that it comes off for some as very bland and others, like Kuzco, as very annoying. The humor in Emperor's New Groove is obviously what the film wants to really focus on, because the story is interrupted by a "clever" joke on fourth wall breaking or constant sarcasm from a constantly annoying David Spade. The jokes are filled with off color sarcasm that fits more in a television series, and it never ends until it's over. It grows annoying fast. David Spade and John Goodman have notably bad chemistry together and some of the story really relys on some good buddy chemistry. The atmosphere of every Disney Renaissance film is very memorable and ties the film even better - gives it a world of its own and life to it. The Emperor's New Groove doesn't try very hard in a sense and is generally forgettable in its very un-Disney like styles. It's annoying, it's tedious, it's unlikable. It's one Disney film that looks like any other good one and when you actually watch it, really disappoints. I guess you either really love or hate it, look at the critics' opinions, but I really hated this one a lot...
