This post shall only be a short post, because really there isn’t too much to say about my go to fun movie – it is just good fun.
And that movie is The Emporer’s New Groove, which I think is just a fantastic journey all the way through with characters who are just plain silly and a plot line which uses all the clichéd methods movies use to cause more drama and action in a way that is shamelessly funny.
Some of my favourite points in the movie include:
[Kuzco and Pacha are tied to a tree branch floating in a river]
Kuzco: Don’t tell me. We’re about to go over a huge waterfall.
Kuzco: Sharp rocks at the bottom?
Pacha: Most likely.
Kuzco: Bring it on.
[after falling into the alligator pit]
Yzma: Why do we even *have* that lever?
Yzma: All right, I’ve had enough of this. Tell us where the talking llama is and we’ll burn your house to the ground.
Kronk: Er, don’t you mean or?
Yzma: [even more angrily] Err, tell us where the talking llama is *or* we’ll burn your house to the ground.
Chaca: Well, which is it? That sounds like a pretty crucial conjunction.
Yzma: Looking for this?
Yzma: [holds up the vial of human extract]
[Kuzco and Pacha gasp]
Kuzco: No! It can’t be! How did you get back here before us?
Yzma: …how *did* we, Kronk?
Kronk: Well, ya got me. By all accounts, it doesn’t make sense.
[Kronk holds up a map of the two parties’ trails, showing Yzma’s and Kronk’s falling down a canyon halfway through]
Yzma: Oh, well.
That’s all for today!
