The Road to El DoradoClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Road to El Dorado is a DreamWorks animated film about two Spanish con artists from the early 16th century who discover the fabled lost "city of gold" in the New World and are treated as gods by the tribe who lives there. Some cartoonish violence -- sword fights between characters, a character cutting his hand with a knife, and characters nearly being crushed by a giant statue -- as well as brief, nonsexual nudity, and scenes where male and female characters kiss and lie next to each other. A scene in which a giant monster-dog goes after the main characters might be a bit much for younger viewers.
- Sexual Content
- Brief, nonsexual nudity after a group of monkeys steal the clothes belonging to Miguel and Tulio. A male and female character kiss and lie next to each other; their kissing is interrupted by a character looking for them.
- Cartoonish violence. Characters fight with swords, but no one gets hurt. A piranha bites a character on the rear end. A human sacrifice is narrowly averted.

Characters are nearly crushed by a giant statue toppling over. A character cuts his hand with a knife and wipes his blood on a statue.
