This is my kind of humour.

A gem of a movie filled with adventure. Entertaining and Elton John's songs were amazing.

I do not feel this movie is appropriate for young viewers. With use of the word "hell" and themes of sexual temptation, I was not impressed for my 5 year old.

This DVD had a problem playing in my dvd player. It kept stopping and skipping.

Probably my favourite non-Disney animated movie of all time: great soundtrack and hilarious characters. Too bad it did horribly at the box office.

This is a very entertaining, wonderfully animated movie. As is typical for animation, historical accuracy and real world rules are not followed, but this does not distract from the entertainment value. I enjoyed this movie very much, and would recommend it to anyone. Great for a family movie night.

A superbly funny movie -- lots of fun for the kids, with a few clever asides for an older audience. Excellent songs and characters.

Miguel: "What's happening!?"
Tuilio: "We are both in barrels. That is the extent of my knowledge."

Miguel: Altivo! Hey, Altivo! You want the nice apple? Come and get it! But, you have to do a trick for me first! All you have to do, is find a pry bar. It's a long piece of metal with a hooky thing at the end.
Tulio: Miguel, you're talking to a horse!
Miguel: Yes, that's it Altivo. Find the pry bar!
Tulio: Yes, "find the pry bar". He doesn't understand "pry bar"! He's a dumb horse, there's no way he could understand...
[Altivo drops keys into the brig]
Tulio: Well... it's *not* a pry bar.

Miguel: Look! El Dorado! The city of gold! This could be our destiny! Our fate!
Tulio: Miguel, if I believed in fate, I wouldn't be playing with loaded dice.

Miguel: You fight like my sister!
Tulio: I've fought your sister. That's a compliment.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: At the end a giant monster chases people. The priests also wants to sacrifice people to their gods. A mean guy pushes someone else into a pot with a boiling mixture. (If I remember right this mixtures awakens the monster.)

Sexual Content: One of the guys falls in love with a girl who is not wearing very many clothes... They also flirt a lot
