ages 5+ | 100 % Say It's Worth Your Time

In this animated comedy-adventure from the Walt Disney Studios. Kuzco is a young emperor of an Inca nation who is self-centered and takes joy in the troubles of others. A sorceress who wants to seize power away from the emperor after he fired her from her royal duties, citing she was too old and unattractive to do the job.With the help of her musclebound assistant Kronk, they devise a plan to poison Kuzco and take the throne, but due to a mistake on Kronk's part, Kuzco isn't killed -- he's instead turned into a talking llama. Kronk can't bring himself to kill the llama, and instead sends the former emperor into the jungle to fend for himself. Kuzco doesn't fair well as a llama until he runs into Pacha, a poor farmer whose property Kuzco once planned to take over for a vacation home. The kind Pacha agrees to help the emperor find his way back home where, hopefully, another sorcerer can reverse the spell, but once they hit the road, they discover Yzma and Kronk are after them, with Yzma determined to finish the job she started.

    This is a really fun movie and David Spade does awesome as the voice of Emperor Kuzco. I caught this on Netflix Instant and thoroughly enjoyed the humor and change of heart Kuzco experienced.

    On the contrary, movies like this one bring up an interesting point concerning death and murder. After all, I'm rated this movie as ok for a 4 year old, yet it has a plot that revolves around someone murdering the emperor so she can take over the kingdom. Even though it's not graphic or super violent, the plot in and of itself introduces the theme of murder to young children. At what point is that ok? I don't profess to know the answer but it's food for thought.

    This movie has some great comedy and lightheartedness to it. the jokes and a few of the characters are classic and to be remembered. On the other hand, there are some dark parts to the movie and some dark themes behind motives in the movie and such. I'd watch it before you put it on for your kids just to make sure you feel comfortable with the darker side of the movie.

    As far as witty slapstick humor goes this is the best Disney film of its time. They took all the best humor from all the Mickey, Donald, and Goofey films and combined them in this with a great South American feel. Another upside to this film is they decided to move away from all the PC garbage of 90s movies and focused on a really good message about true friendship and family. With the newly discovered popularity of CG films at the time of this films release many have forgotten about the gem this film really is. It is worth dusting off, watching and having a good laugh with the Emperor's New Groove.
    As with most Disney animated films this one deserves a low PG for slap stick violence and some frightening imagery.
