If you liked ALADDIN, you'll love Disney's THE EMPEROR'S NEW GROOVE, where outrageous comedy rules! Audiences and critics alike raved about this hilarious animated adventure. "Ebert & Roeper And The Movies" gave it "Two Thumbs Up." Faster than you can say "Boom, baby," arrogant Emperor Kuzco is turned into a llama by his devious advisor, Yzma, and her hunky henchman, Kronk, who want to rid the kingdom of this beast of burden. Now the ruler who once had it all must form an unlikely alliance with a pleasant peasant named Pacha. Together, Kuzco and Pacha must overcome their differences as they embark on a hilarious, "groovy" adventure that will have you howling with laughter.

Energetic animation is topped off by pitch perfect voice work from the cast, with Patrick Warburton stealing the show as Kronk (no wonder the guy got his own spin-off film.) And the great thing about the humor is that it's not juvenile and grating for adults, yet it's high energy enough for kids to enjoy even if some of the jokes are too meta for the really little ones.
The style is Disney-- you know immediately that this is from the same studio that produced Alladin-- and yet there is an attitude much more like the classic Warner Brothers than the House de Mouse. Never mind that this doesn't pretend to great emotional depth; this is a hilarious film that can be enjoyed by any age.
And that's no small feat. Cheesy emotional depth, mediocre music, stilted drama-- all of those failed attempts can still be rewarding. But a failed comedy is just, well, dumb instead of funny. This flick is repeatedly branded as lightweight and B or C list, but doggone it, it's hard to make a really funny movie, and this delivers the goods.
Now, onto the product itself. I ordered the single-disc DVD version. $15 is a little steep for just the DVD of an older movie, but I can't exactly find this anywhere, and I really wanted it, so I got it. (For comparison, older movies from Dreamworks on DVD are about 5 bucks. Maybe it's a Disney thing...)
Since it's not a special edition or anything fancy, my expectations were met. Just your average DVD case, cover, and colorful disc. There was an advertisement for the Disney Rewards program and a code, but no paper with chapter titles or anything like that (but forgoing this seems to be a trend with newer DVDs in general).
The disc was not scratched or damaged and played without a hitch.
So, short summary: got what I expected, but payed a little more than I would have liked compared to other titles. All in all, I'm satisfied.
