Trivia

In 1989, scriptwriter Nicholas Kazan penned a " Cortes " screenplay which became the subject of a fierce bidding war. Producer Edward R. Pressman bought the rights and while it drew the attention of Mel Gibson and Andy Garcia, and directors such as Paul Verhoeven, Peter Weir and Werner Herzog, ultimately its $75m price tag was considered too uncommercial.

Definitely a must see...
26 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

This has got to be one of the most hilarious animated movies of all time. The situational comedy is truly amazing.

The voice acting is well done as well however the song are a little disappointing, coming from the duo that brought us the soundtrack of The Lion King. Only a couple are good.

However the comedy and the great visuals definitely make up for it.

This movie is definitely a must see!!!

Rating: 10/10
