One of my personal favorites on this list, the Emperor’s New Groove is both engaging and hilarious.

The story follows a selfish emperor in South America after his evil advisor turns him into a llama in a failed assassination attempt. Knocked from his high horse as an all-powerful emperor, Cuzco learns about friendship and what it means to care about people other than himself.

The whole movie is situationally humorous, while the cast and writing make it even more funny with little jokes thrown in here and there. The Emperor’s New Groove might be considered a children’s movie, but it is definitely not one that would annoy a parent to watch over and over.
