Mine completely changed. Movie of choice for me will be The Emperor's New Groove. It's one that friends have been after us to see, it is SHORT, which is a real consideration when you start counting up the movies already in the bullpen, and it's not a downer.

Thanks everyone for your opinions. I promise that I will watch these other movies soon!

I really like that movie. David Spade was wonderful in it, and who is a better villian than Ertha Kitt? I saw it in the theater and own it on DVD. Good choice!

Not long before it came out, I found a rerun of Facts of Life/failed spinoff pilot featuring a very young Mr. Spade as a college boy. I told DH that his particular smarm worked better when he was young. Doing animation was brilliant; what's irritating and immature as you push 30 from the other side can be amusing in teenagers (at least in movies.) He can stay forever 18 in cartoons.

My son and I have watched that repeatedly, and it's a lot of fun. Enjoy!

(And, yes, Eartha Kitt alone is worth the time.)

llama time

I'd suggest putting it in the middle. Make it a nice palate cleanser from all the violence and stuff...

Plus one of the voice actors is Patrick Warburton...Always a plus...

That's one of my favorite Disney movies! And I'm a diehard Golden Age of Disney fan who doesn't like much else they've done.

Note: I consider the "Golden Age" to be: Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid, Aladdin, up through to Mulan.

I'd have called that the Second Golden Age of Disney, but otherwise, oh yeah. That was also the only time since the thirties that they were producing Mickey Mouse short subjects that even TRIED to be funny, as well as the era of the Disney Afternoon.

One of my favorite movies, actually, and definitely my favorite buddy movie. I actually liked it better than Lilo and Stitch.

<bile>It's a damn shame they've shut down the Florida studio, but I guess it's clear that Disney's current leadership just doesn't like the idea of cartoons being funny, looking pretty, or being good.<bile>

Alas, the thinking is that cel animation is dead. It's a pity, but much easier to think that it's a technology problem rather than a poor moviemaking problem....

Naturally; after all, changing technologies is something an executive can accomplish just by throwing money and pink slips around.

Getting better writers and plotters -- or getting BACK the writers and plotters you had BEFORE -- is a lot harder.

Most terrifying of all. Disney announced that they would be using CGI exclusively in the future ... and then turned around and bought the Muppets.

Well, Muppets aren't animated. So maybe there's still hope...
