  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
"Kronk's (Warburton) New Groove" is in the kitchen of his own diner. But his happiness is put to the test when he gets a llama-gram stating that his Papi (Mahoney) is coming for a visit. Attempting to impress dear old dad, Kronk cooks up some schemes to make him look like he's something he's not. But he soon learns that lies are nothing but trouble, and real life is better than fantasy. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture exhibits a vibrant animated picture that will surely delight young viewers. Colors are rich and solid throughout. The animated images are sharp, with a nice sense of dimension. Occasionally, objects appear slightly edgy, but there are no major distractions. (Suzanne Hodges)
