The Road To El Dorado (2000)



Reviews and Comments

DreamWorks studios countered the movement to make animated films big budget show spectaculars by making this one an unassuming little adventure comedy. It uses the old white-guys-mistaken-for-gods plot as the setting for some amusing shenanigans. The main characters are only interested in the spoils of a lost civilization and, later, the woman who sees through their charade. There is nothing earthshatteringly new or profound here; it's no more or less than a dose of lighthearted fun, and a good one at that.
