The Emperor's New Groove

If you liked ALADDIN, you’ll love Disney’s THE EMPEROR’S NEW GROOVE, where outrageous comedy rules! Audiences and critics alike raved about this hilarious animated adventure. “Ebert & Roeper And The Movies” gave it “Two Thumbs Up.” Faster than you can say “Boom, baby,” arrogant Emperor Kuzco is turned into a llama by his devious advisor, Yzma, and her hunky henchman, Kronk, who want to rid the kingdom of this beast of burden. Now the ruler who once had it all must form an unlikely alliance with

    This may be my favorite Disney movie ever. (I normally prefer Pixar.)

    The reviewers who did not like it clearly expected something for small kids. It is not. It is very abstract in places, especially the art, which is really quite amazing. Watch for the design of the panthers, and the bats. And the landscapes. Wonderful stuff.

    And the dialogue and the delivery especially is just hilarious. How you can get such delivery in an animated film is beyond me.

    Warmly recommended for mature viewers with an edgy sense of humor.

    This review is from: The Emperor’s New Groove (DVD)

    THE EMPEROR’S NEW GROOVE is the funniest movie that I have seen in years. I initially had passed on watching it in the theater because I thought it looked childish, but was convinced to give it a try now that it was out on video. Boy, was my initial impression wrong.

    The story revolves around a selfish prince who is turned into a llama by one of his subjects. With the help of a kindly peasant he attempts to regain his throne, and in the process finds there’s more to him than he previously thought or wanted there to be. While the moral is a good one, it really plays a secondary role to the comedy, which is literally non-stop. GROOVE takes the rapid-fire humor that Disney perfected in Aladdin and combines it with cartoon-style hijinx, the wit of David Spade, and a hilarious lack of reverence for the traditional Disney animated genre. Spade plays his role to perfection, and luckily never crosses the line into being obnoxious. Seinfeld fans are in for a treat, as Puddy plays a very special side-kick role. You really can’t take your eyes off the screen for a minute, because you’re guaranteed to miss a gag of some sort. The humor works mainly on an adult level, even though kids will be rolling from the funny visuals and some of the more obvious jokes.

    The DVD itself is a good one. The digital transfer was excellent and the sound quality is top notch. The commentary track is one of the better that I’ve heard, with interesting and funny insight from all contributors. Animated menus. There’s a deleted scene that was probably best left out, but is interesting to watch anyway, plus a few other fun features.

    In the end, this is one of the best Disney flicks to come along in years. Hardcore Disney fans will eat it up. But even if you’re not a fan of Disney’s usual animated features you should give GROOVE a shot. Cast aside your pre-concieved notions and you just might be in for a very pleasant surprise. I was. FIVE STARS.
