As a film on its own, KRONK’S NEW GROOVE isn’t awful. I wasn’t ever bored while watching it; the nonstop silly humor and self-referential gags will amuse kids and adults alike, although the fourth time David Spade’s character Kuzco interrupts the movie to comment on it, I wanted to kick him in the esophagus (of course, that may stem from my natural urge to inflict pain upon
Games and Activities:
Pyramid Scheme: I’ll be honest: due to my over-achieving need to prove myself, I played this trivia game until the end…and got a perfect score! In your face, four year olds of America!
Kronk’s Brain Game: Help our unfortunately-named hero solve an assortment of puzzles. I’m sure today’s kids, with their Ataris and their newfangled Commodore 64’s will love playing a game via remote control.
How to Cook a Movie (7:54): Patrick Warburton hosts this “Making Of” featurette disguised as a cheesy cooking show in the same silly, spastic style of the film. Packed with interviews, footage of the actors in the recording studio, and an explanation of the animation process, this is a pretty good way to introduce kids to the movie making process.
Sneak Peeks: Trailers and behind-the-scenes looks at a few upcoming Disney
THE WILD: A lion is taken from a New York zoo and released in to the African jungle. Isn’t that the exact same plot as MADAGASCAR? Way to go, Disney. You’re going to do just fine without Pixar.
LEROY AND STITCH: The original LILO AND STITCH was actually good. So of course, this means it must be ruined with yet another lame sequel.
THE FOX AND THE HOUND 2: Shhhhhh…if you listen carefully you can actually here Walt Disney spinning in his grave, cursing the name of Eisner.
