    An absolutely giddy film. It's Disney, but it's slapstick. And great slapstick at that. I was worried about watching this at first because a) I was worried songs would be thrown in throughout, but I should have paid attention to the running time. 78 minutes, 74 of which had quality jokes in them. (The other 4 were the end credits.) Other than one comic song belted out admirably by Tom Jones there was no singing, no ballad to slow down…

    Nostalgia is definitely a factor here. I can remember watching the VHS several times a week for a while, this may be my most watched movie of all time. And after that many times, it's hard to take that nostalgia out of the equation. It just always makes me happy.

    That being said, I genuinely think this is the one of the funniest Disney movies. It has a zany, "anything goes" type of humour that makes it unique. Beautiful backgrounds, great voice acting, and wall-to-wall gags.

    I'll be watching this regularly, you can bet on that.

    Really fun and extremely underrated. I can probably guess why. Two reasons, not a well known story and the main voice is David Spader, not an actor that has many followers. Many didn't give this film a single chance, and they were so wrong to do so.

    This film is extremely fun and the script is superb. Even David Mamet commented that this film was one of the most superior scripts in Hollywood at that time. Told beautifully through flash…

    I guess when they started making this movie, they were making exactly what you'd expect them to follow up Tarzan with - a huge, sweeping musical epic with songs by Sting. That didn't work out and no doubt the world is better for it - I can only imagine that being a hit and Disney making Lion King type movies forever. As finished, this is a confidently silly piece of nonstop slapstick comedy that its predecessors only were (usually less…

    A completely middling offer from Disney Animation that works much better as children's entertainment. The comedic elements work some of the time and the meta aspects are perhaps not utilized enough.

    Eartha Kitt's performance as Esme is deliciously evil, and Patrick Warburton plays her sidekick Kronk with just the right amount of stupidity.

    Ultimately the buddy comedy that this film tries to be has been done better and any attempts at sincere emotion in this one doesn't necessarily feel earned or deserved. I'll hold onto this for my future children, but today it doesn't resonate.

    The longer I browse social media sites like Imgur and Tumblr, the more I realize that there's a generation after mine who don't look back on Beauty And The Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, and The Little Mermaid as the great Disney animated films of their youth, but rather The Hunchback Of Notre Dame, Lilo And Stitch, and The Emperor's New Groove. I'd never seen The Emperor's New Groove before this viewing and I honestly don't know if I'd have…

    It may not feel like a Disney film with its noticeably chaotic sense of humour, but The Emperor's New Groove still is one of their best in since The Lion King, thanks to the intentionally nonsensical plot and a hilariously sensitive guy named Kronk.

    I know this may not be a widely held opinion, but The Emperor’s New Groove is one of the funniest movies ever made. This movie is perfectly cast, perfectly animated, perfectly paced, and perfectly hilarious. Right from the get-go the movie is joke after joke that does not let up and is action movie paced but replace the action with hysterical humor. While having touches of pathos and gravity it merely anchors down the jokes from flying off the rails.…

    Am I bias toward this film's very existence? Hell yes I am. But, do I also genuinely think this film to be underrated in its own right for what it's worth, and nothing more? Hell yes I do. A very loosely focused story on the dismantling of one's narcissistic tendencies in exchange for empathy, as well as the repercussions felt by others when a seat of power enacts a strict decision on behalf of him/themselves. Instead of narrowing in on…
