The Emperor's New Groove (2000)



Reviews and Comments

I'm amazed. Something remotely associated with David Spade, who does the voice for the main character in this Disney animated comedy, is funny. Spade's character isn't funny very often, but the movie is. Even so, The Emperor's New Groove marked an unwelcome change of pace for Disney animation, which had had a wonderful run of great musicals and ended them in favor of more disposable comedies. Many of the jokes are reliant on pop culture and are already dated. Still, this is a pleasant diversion.
