In this animated comedy from the folks at Disney, the vain and cocky Emperor Kuzco is a very busy man. Besides maintaining his "groove", and firing his suspicious administrator, Yzma; 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, 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
The makers of the film originally wanted to get Sting to sing the opening song but he said he was too old, they needed someone more hip and younger. So they went with Tom Jones, who is 11 years older than Sting. He did write "My Funny Friend and Me", which included a music video from the movie. See more »
When Kronk is getting rid of the bag holding Kuzco and "doing his own theme music", Kuzco describes him as "big, dumb, and tone deaf". However, the DVD closed captions misspell the "big" part as "gig". See more »

For the last time, it was not a kiss.
Well, whatever you call it, it was disgusting.

"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!
