Dora and the Lost City of Gold 

 

I will openly admit that I did not expect much from Dora and the Lost City of Gold. A live action Dora the Explorer movie did not sound very appealing or interesting. Thankfully I spent the 102 minutes to watch Dora and the Lost City of Gold on DVD. This movie is fantastic for families. I was shocked at how funny Dora and the Lost City of Gold is. I was surprised at how interesting Dora and the Lost City of Gold is.

Dora and the Lost City of Gold starts out with Dora and Diego as kids in the jungle. Diego’s family moves to the city and we fast forward to high school. Dora’s parents go on an expedition and she is shipped off to her cousin to work on her social skills. This is her first interaction with other teenagers. The structure of the school and her friendly positive attitude clearly do not mix - as anyone would anticipate. This leads to a ton of humor though.

Dora and the Lost City of Gold taught me some very good lessons. First there is such a thing as a jungle puzzle. Second having a positive attitude is very helpful in life. Third working hard is a great reward especially when it comes to studying. Finally if you are having a problem then try a song. The songs in Dora and the Lost City of Gold are fun, funny, and wind up helping the situation almost every single time.

The issues families could have with Dora and the Lost City of Gold are false gods, some mild violence, and rude insulting humor. SPOILER ALERT! Even the main bad guy in Dora and the Lost City of Gold winds up living at the end of the movie. He winds up imprisoned of course. The old lady that transforms into a young lady was a bit odd. I am not sure if that was supposed to be magic.

Bottom line is Dora and the Lost City of Gold is a great movie for families on so many levels. Dora and the Lost City of Gold is a nice nod to the franchise while expanding it in wonderful ways families can appreciate. Dora and the Lost City of Gold remind us we don’t need to be cynical all the time. We can be happy and appreciate all of the blessing we have around us. I hope there are more movies in this franchise.
