Visitor Comments

Ian Douglas: Not Disney's best. I found the soundtrack very noisy in places, and the old woman is obviously a close relative of Cruela DeVille. No doubt the kiddies will love it, adults can skip this one.

Andrew McCarthy (32): The ''bad lady'' is ''very in your face'', definately not for kids. Though funny in places, its a long way from been a top comedy

Sanet Kleynhan (25): It'll definately make you laugh or at least smile.

Simone Eichler (25): Lots of fun! The kids with me loved it. Only problem: the children could not remember the names of the characters, so the novelty wore off quickly.

Elysha Herridge (21): I absolutly loved this movie...David Spade was chosen brilliantly to do the part of Kuzko....a barrel of laughs......5 stars in my book!!!! Boom, baby!!!

Patricia Amey (21): I love this movie!!! Kusco is so funny and adorable. I've watched this movie over and over. I'll never get tired of it. Thanks to Disney for making this movie!!!!

Abbie Ryan: This movie is ideal for children in that it's not the same mindless drivel Disney's been regurgitating ever since The Little Mermaid, but it's got humor adults can appreciate, too. Finally Disney characters that have a sense of humor; and a storyline that doesn't involve the typical damsel in distress and her heroic true love.
