The Emperor’s New Groove

Kuzco is a self-centered emperor who summons Pacha from a village and to tell him that his home will be destroyed to make room for Kuzco’s new summer home. Kuzco’s advisor, Yzma, tries to poison Kuzco and accidentally turns him into a llama, who accidentally ends up in Pacha’s village. Pacha offers to help Kuzco if he doesn’t destroy his house, and so they form an unlikely partnership.

Movie Reviews:

  • r96sk: Amusing film.

    ‘The Emperor’s New Groove’ doesn’t, in my opinion, feature a great plot, amazing music or incredible animation. All of that is all fine, though it’s the humour that makes this film tick. It isn’t belly laugh worthy but from start-to-finish I was amused by the funny nature of it.

    The premise is very silly, which works in its favour, with a load of things that don’t quite add up, it even references that itself in the third act. That just adds to the fun, they know it’s a mindless 78 minutes and make it work.

    The reason it comes out so well is thanks to David Spade and John Goodman. Spade is terrific as Kuzco, bringing the perfect wit to the self-serving emperor. Goodman is the overall star though, I thoroughly enjoyed him in the role of Pacha. Patrick Warburton is also decent as Kronk.

    It all makes for chilled out viewing, you’ll have a good time if you just sit back and enjoy it – as I did.
