    I cannot think of one single thing that I would change about this film. The acting is incomparable, the directing deft, and the writing poignantly brilliant.

    There is, somehow, an interesting story here, as well as some good acting. There are also some good scenes

    Very good movie overall, highly recommended. Most of the negative reviews don't have any merit and are all pollitically based. Give this movie a chance at least, and it might give you a different perspective.

    By the time the dramatic fireworks start popping off, each one feels earned.

    It's actually made me laugh that adults are writing a review on their perspective of a child's show. Your not the target audience so it will be boring and annoying to you! The show is aimed at preschool children and repetition is needed for them to learn anything . Surely none of you slating how repetitive it is could say had to tell your child once and they instantly learn? And to someone who wrote that a whole 16 seconds was dedicated to counting to 8 .sorry but they get numbers and letters shoved down their throat every else so it's refreshing to have a show that's not the same old repetitive stuff So I think if you look a little further in to what this cartoon displays you will see there is a lot of educational aspects to the show . I'm my point of view the kids are being taught memory -the map giving directions and having to repeat them to dora and when they have to tell dora what path to take Communication and decision making- the kids are encouraged to answer questions about what they have seen . There's a lot more to dora than meets the eye you just have tk see it through the eye of a kid not a parent

    WHY THE HELL is this piece of dog poop so popular?why,WHY!?!?!?Even my seven year old sister can come up with better ideas.This makes the new episodes of spongebob look like a masterpiece.The writers of this show are probably as dumb as dora.Speaking of dora,she's got to be one of my least favorite cartoon characters,no,scratch that,my least favorite CHARACTER of all time.And boots is no better either.I'd rather watch blues clues and I don't even like that show either.Oh,I forgot to mention that dora and boots sing pointless and dumb musical numbers every episode(if that isn't bad enough, they sing the EXACT SAME SONGS EVERY SINGLE EPISODE!!!!!)And don't even get me started on swiper,who I wish would once swipe dora's clothes.You know what,now I am pretty convinced that this show's writers are DUMBER than dora.So bottom line:dora is a dumb,stupid show that I believe is making our generation's kids dumber.It's sad that kids have to grow up watching these abominations instead of watching classics like tom and jerry,looney tunes etc.

    My 2-year-old son loves this show, but I hate it. It's obnoxious the way they always say and sing the same things, and why do the animators think its cute for her to have a short little shirt on? The only good things I have to say about this show are that it keeps my son's attention, and it does teach colors and counting, and a few words in Spanish. If I never saw this show again I wouldn't complain. However, it is a children's show and apparently a lot of kids love it, so I guess it has something for them. Overall, I would say that it's a good show for young children and toddlers, but a drag for parents who have to watch it too.

    I have tried to like Dora the Explorer, as I am all for educational shows. For example Tots TV, Sesame Street and Rosie and Jim were educational and all three of them I loved as a kid because they were also a lot of fun. As an 18 year old girl, I kept in consideration that this was a kids show, but sorry I don't like it. The first problem and my major problem with Dora the Explorer is that it is too repetitive. The scripting, the music, the story lines... they felt the same in every episode. Another problem is that I for one don't find it educational, there was an episode when Dora I think counted to ten in Spanish. Kids will definitely find that educational, but for someone who studied Spanish for two years, I couldn't help rolling my eyes at something I already knew. Then the story lines are unoriginal for the most part, the music is forgettable(to me that is though I do appreciate that they were keeping it simple for kids to remember, but I personally felt they went overboard with the simplicity), the characters are thin, the writing is shallow and for me the voice acting was unexceptional. On a plus, the animation was nice to look at, simple but colourful and bright. Overall, sorry but I don't like it, kids will love it but being older it doesn't appeal to me. 1/10 for the animation.
