  1. It has a jokey irreverence that keeps it from teetering over the edge to absurdity.
  2. The DreamWorks team continues to give Disney a run for their money.
  3. 63
    This is one Road whose gold apparently got paved over.
  4. Little more than a sanitized blend of nonsense and adventure and just a teeny bit of romance, interspersed with the occasional pop song.
  5. The package would be more enticing if it didn't fall so squarely into overused Hollywood formulas.
  6. A loosely woven crazy quilt of other, better movies.
  7. The movie itself may be a species of Montezuma's revenge.

    Simply put, an underrated animated classic. Good humor for both adults and children, great action, awsome animation and even some social commentary regarding religion. This is a must see movie. Expand

    A great film for all audiences with inclusions of memorable humour and a charming score. While the story and morals delivered by this film may be more challenging for children to understand, that does not steal away from the final score. Expand

    While Road to El Dorado is not a super strong flick I liked it and am glad I saw it. It is a bit more edgy than your average animated kids film. There is some great animation especially on the backgrounds. Some good humor from some likeable characters. Plus, you get a couple good songs. If you have some time to kill and this flick is On Demand, like it is right now until 5/30, check it out. While it may not be as hilarious as something like Dirty Rotten Scoundrels its characters and humor are good enough to make this worth a watch. Expand

    "The Road to El Dorado" is like watching a animated Indiana Jones (2 of them) flying around and arousing traps and entertainment to the audience. The movie may move quite linear, but in the end its zesty and thrilling. Expand
