The movie does take a while to get going (it's surprisingly long at about an hour and 40 minutes), but once it does, it's entertaining until the end.

Everything we love from the show is in this movie while still Making it enjoyable for all ages.

Really Enjoyed it!.

This is the worst movie I've seen.

But unlike Blues Clues that had very mundane and general mysteries, Dora the Explorer at least tried to add a little more education with zoology and a main character that was Latina.

Dumb And Predictable .

It's a joke that really dragged for me.

Although there are a few cringe worthy scenes that only little kids would enjoy, we both thought the movie was quite funny & overall entertaining.

These characters were SO great and their acting was very enjoyable.

Film was entertaining and funny, even though the entire third act has been lifted from Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade.

It was cheesy and entertaining.

On the one hand, it's an energetic and enjoyable adventure movie throughout, and is the explorer movie that Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull never was.

Dora and the Lost City of Gold is an entertaining movie.

It'll do its job in entertaining the younger audience and isn't too much of a chore to watch.

I found it entertaining and funny.

The live-action Dora film is entertaining for young viewers who know the character.

It was boring .

The film is more fun for children, because the story can come across as somewhat predictable or obvious thanks to the simple elaboration for adult viewers.

With so many violent and intense movies these days, this proved a refreshing change.

So movies that come out to potentially extend a hand back into the past and relive those moments are very intriguing and we may just find ourselves flocking to the movies to figure out what they writers could have in store for our heroes.

This balancing act doesn't always work, but when it does, it makes for an enjoyable watch.

I wasn't a Dora fan, but I think if you're looking for a safe, enjoyable friendly film to take your kids to this weekend go ahead and pick Dora and the Lost City of Gold.

I was completely wrong and the entire time I wanted to leave and regretted going.

Really Enjoyable!!.

I'm 23 and took my college friends to see it and we all enjoyed it!!!

Entertaining .

With that said, the period where the story sags is bookended by an electrifyingly funny opening act, as well as an adorable and genuinely entertaining finale (not to mention a great musical number in the closing credits).

It was actually so entertaining, great for kids and the grandpa sitting in the same row as me in the theater clearly loved it (he laughed so much!

Dora is exceptional in that it almost entirely avoids all those tired formulaic approaches, replacing them instead with a very fun, upbeat, and engaging story that doesn't try to be anything more than that.

' It was entertaining and fun, and my kids came out singing and dancing.

The adventure is predictable with lots of obvious foreshadowing laid out in the first third of the act.

Terrible acting but entertaining for us kids at heart.

Surprisingly enjoyable .

And throughout, while it may be difficult to get your head round such a strangely anarchic Dora The Explorer movie, the film's energy and audacity in trying something different is hugely rewarding, proving an immensely entertaining and genuinely likable watch throughout.

This live action adaptation of Dora was alright and it was predictable.

On the other, though, it is unavoidably simplistic and generic, and when the comedy isn't working at full capacity (particularly in the second act), the film can feel a little on the dull side for viewers over the age of 5.

I highly recommend it.

Rating 9.1/10 Surprisingly entertaining.

My daughter absolutely loved Dora as a kid, she's 15 now and we enjoyed it.

What does hurt it is while it tries to evolve Dora and her adventure, it still succumbs to cliché family movie parts like the annoying geek character and bathroom jokes.

Dora never takes itself too serious, and it's extremely enjoyable to watch.

The movie was extremely boring and mostly cringey.


They all totally loved it and I enjoyed it way more than I expected to.

There were some cringy part only younger kids would find funny but overall if was super funny and enjoyable!

The plot is bare minimum boring.

This is an entertaining film for children who are familiar with the animation version of Dora the Explorer and for parents who have seen this animation together with their children.

i enjoyed it.

A fun movie, more enjoyable than it has any right to be .

And after a while they start to feel the same, tired jokes, intentional and contrived "over their heads" references that parents are supposed to really appreciate, and all too often some sort of ham-handed and out of place modern morality message that invariably falls flat and comes across as entirely gratuitous and painfully forced.
