Two eccentric con artists, Tulio and Miguel, are shooting craps in the sun-squelched streets of 16th-century Spain when they win a sacred map charting the way to El Dorado, the lost City of Gold, and see it as their ticket both to adventure and an enormous fortune. With the map in hand, they stow away on the ship of evil Spanish leader Cortez, bound for Cuba. By chance, the two men are thrown off course and find themselves in a lush and vibrant rainforest replete with exotic animals, hidden waterfalls, and traces of an Indian civilization. Stumbling upon the gate to El Dorado, Tulio and Miguel are thought to be gods by a group of Mayan natives, and they are led into the heart of the city for a special welcoming ceremony. There they meet the adorable Chel, a con artist herself, who practically bests them at their own tricks. In the end, the two friends must choose whether they will stay and enjoy life in the magical city of El Dorado or make off with the gold and return to Western culture as rich men.
I bought this movie to show my 5th grade class as we were studying Spanish explorers and I was very pleased with the movie. There were two occasions that the main characters cursed so that is why I gave the product 4 stars.

Never heard about this when it was released, borrowed from the libary and my young daughters absolutely loved it. Yes, adult themes are alluded to, however aren't obvious. Couldn't keep it checked out of the library forever so bought our own - the songs are catchy and fun - natch, being Elton John. Basic theme of movie is appropriate for little ones, unlike reality tv. Fun to watch over and over, you won't get bored.
Hi jonquil5938, this movie is brought to vivid life with a 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen presentation and either DTS Digital Surround, Dolby Digital 5.1, or Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround Sound. Unfortunately, subtitles and audio are limited to English only. Thanks for your interest, hope this helps! overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 12, 2013
