Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents, nothing could prepare Dora for her biggest challenge yet: High School. When her parents mysteriously disappear while searching for the Lost City of Gold, Dora must swing into action and lead a group of ill-equipped high schoolers on a quest to save them. It is a high stakes mission as Dora and her new friends navigate the jungle, outrun treasure hunters and solve ancient puzzles to unlock the mystery of the fabled city.

Fans of the show who have grown past it will appreciate the references and new humour; newcomers will probably find the corniness and infantile jokes bumpy. There are some genuinely hilarious moments brought on by the more veteran cast members like Peña and Longoria, and the ending sequence is pretty satisfying (I'd definitely buy the ending song, which has clean and positive lyrics in Spanish.) I'd have utilized more of Isabela Merced's mellifluent voice; sadly when she sang it was to harken to childish songs that were incredibly reductive of her talents--definitely a missed chance there. It's not great, but a nice popcorn movie for maybe younger viewers and those not averse to campiness and animation/effects that make you roll your eyes hard.

It's definitely campy in parts as snippets of Dora's iconic songs and questions for the audience occasionally take center stage, but I thought that added to its charm. Isabela Merced does an excellent job translating the cartoon into a fun family movie. I also enjoyed seeing Eva Longoria as an explorer and mother.

This is a fun movie. For such a significant brand, I expected a much better quality movie in terms of actors, this felt like a better quality version of a Disney Channel TV movie. I was underwhelmed, which is why I gave it 3.5 starts and not better.

I have never seen the cartoon but as an adult I found it very cute and funny.

This was one of the best biopics I've ever seen in my life. Dora has been a staple of my childhood ever since she introduced me to the long lost language of Spanish. This mythical language is uncovered throughout he adventures that were first show to us through a children's cartoon where a young Dora takes her spirit possessed backpack and map, along with her spirit monkey guide, and uncovers what I believe are the ancient ruins of the long lost Spanish people of the world. This film shows us a small but important fragment of her life where she saves a long lost culture from the exploitative greed of Hollywood. I even hear she'll be getting her own HBO mini-series.

Worst movie ever!!!! My Children grew up with Dora and this was so bad we didn't even finish it. There are not good examples in this movie and the main character is poked fun at. Do yourself a favor just stick to the original movies.

This movie was absolutely outrageous! The actors were horrible at acting, and the whole movie was just outright boring! The beginning was okay, but I could barely watch the whole thing. Whatever you do, don't waste your time watching this movie. I was disappointed in this movie, and I do hope that they won't make a second one.

Nickelodeon Studios knows what they're doing. This was squarely aimed at the meme generation, and it payed off. It has some slapstick comedy for the kids but the absurdity of Dora interacting with people outside the jungle had us laughing pretty hard. It's like Mean Girls + Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt + Indian Jones / Lara Croft.

It's a bit like tomb raider but more fun....Having basically never watched the cartoon I still enjoyed it quite a bit.
