In this animated comedy from the folks at Disney, the vain and cocky Emperor Kuzco (David Spade) is a very busy man. Besides maintaining his "groove", and firing his suspicious administrator, Yzma (Eartha Kitt), he's also planning to build a new waterpark just for himself for his birthday. However, this means destroying one of the villages in his kingdom. Meanwhile, Yzma is hatching a plan to get revenge and usurp the throne. But, in a botched assassination courtesy of Yzma's right-hand man, Kronk (Patrick Warburton), Kuzco is magically transformed into a llama. Now, Kuzco finds himself the property of Pacha, a lowly llama herder whose home is ground zero for the water park. Upon discovering the llama's true self, Pacha offers to help resolve the Emperor's problem and regain his throne, only if he promises to move his water park.Written by
In the diner scene, Kronk is about to put cheese sauce on his food, until Kuzco walks in and says "Cheese, me no like cheese" so he saves it by catching the cheese on his oven mitt. See more »
In the opening scene in the jungle, there are clearly shown many Venus Flytrap plants. These plants only occur naturally within a 60 mile radius of Wilmington, North Carolina, which is nowhere near Peru. See more »
So, is everything ready for tonight?
Oh, yeah. I thought we'd start off with soup and a light salad, and then see how we feel after that.
Not the dinner. You know...
Oh, right. The poison. The poison for Kuzco, the poison chosen especially to kill Kuzco, Kuzco's poison. That poison?
Yes! That poison.
Got you covered.
Excellent. A few drops in his drink, and then I'll propose a toast, and he will be dead before dessert.
Which is a real shame, because it's gonna be delicious.

A sequence showing Kuzco's guards training for the destruction of Pacha's village was fully animated, scored, and in color when it was deleted from the film. Animation of the guards from this sequence appears during the final battle in the film's third act. This sequence appears as a special feature on the DVD. See more »
"The Emperor's New Groove" is a rare hilarious Disney movie.
It's very different from any other Disney movie so this movie might also be very watchable to you Disney haters out there. The movie pace is incredibly high and the music by John Debney and Sting are a real surprise. The movie really is a non-stop hilarious comedy with some unique humor. Also the style, both visual and story-wise is different from any other previous Disney movie, which in this case is a positive thing.
The characters are great. Kuzco and Pacha are a perfect team. Yzma is a remarkable villain and her sidekick Kronk is hilarious. Yep, Laughs are guaranteed in this very hip and hilarious movie!
The story really is of no importance and most of it never makes sense but that's also why this movie is both unique and hilarious to watch over and over again.
Highly recommendable to everyone!
