The Road to El Dorado | 2000 | PG | - 2.3.1

Animated feature about two con men who find themselves on an adventure to the fabled El Dorado where they seek their fortune and end up being mistaken as gods. With the voices of Kevin Kline, Armand Assante, Kenneth Branagh, Edward James Olmos and Rosie Perez. [1:29]

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Two men are seen naked from the back. A very voluptuous woman is scantily clad exposing some cleavage and lots of hip. There's an implied seduction (we leave the couple while they are massaging each other's shoulders) and a couple is interrupted while smooching (we hear some smacks).

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man slices his hand with a knife and blood drips from the wound and a man has a bloody gash on his forehead. A man is pushed into a fiery brewing potion. A huge stone creature comes to life. It has glaring green eyes and chases and steps on people; it is also shown with a person in his mouth (he eats him offscreen). In one scene someone is almost sacrificed and there are a couple of discussions about sacrifice and torture. A mystic conjures up some scary looking snakes, spiders and rats that disappear in a puff. Two men shove each other around, argue and end up in a sword fight (just for show). They are also chased by an angry bull, a crowd, and several guards, are shot at with arrows and end up jumping into barrels of water. We see two men locked in shackles and they are threatened with flogging. A man bangs his head against a beam repeatedly. A ship crashes into stone gates, and a horse jumps off a ship into the sea. A rowboat capsizes dumping two men into the water and there's a struggle in very rough waters to stay afloat. A shark eats a seagull off the end of a boat. We see a man with leeches all over his back and a piranha attaches itself to a man's bottom. Two men and a horse fall from a cliff and land hard on the ground. A woman runs from a crowd armed with spears and a man is dragged away by soldiers. A volcano begins to erupt but then stops. A couple of face punches and slaps.

LANGUAGE 1 - Two mild profanities and an obvious reference to a scatological term ("holy ship").

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
