Editors Note
Note 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.
Plot Summary
Summary THE ROAD TO EL DORADO is the animated tale of two con men who discover a secret map that leads to the lost City of Gold, El Dorado. After a long, distracted journey, the pair finally lands at the gates of the mystical city, only to be mistaken for gods. Enjoying a pampered existence, they must decide for themselves if they should remain in El Dorado or steal the gold and return to life in the Western world as outrageously wealthy men. The animation itself is vibrant and well researched, making for an enjoyable viewing experience for individuals of all ages.

Review ...Piling gag on top of gag is the strategy of the film, a bright and zesty animated comedy from DreamWorks. In the studio's quest to compete with Disney in the feature-length animation sweepstakes, it's a worthy entry. It's not as quirky as Antz or as grown up as The Prince of Egypt, but as silly fun it does nicely... This is not a landmark in the history of feature animation, but it's bright and has good energy, and the kinds of witty asides that entertain the adults in between the margins of the stuff for the kids.

Review ...Tulio and Miguel as voiced by Kline and Branagh have a comedic timing that is so sharp, they transcend their two dimensions to vividly convey characters who have gone through a lot together... They are very likable characters and as the story goes on, you genuinely care what happens to them... The Road to El Dorado is a brilliantly animated feature... that is sure to amaze and entertain audiences of all ages
