Hercules (1997, USA) C-92m. ** D: Ron Clements, John Musker. Starring (the voices of) Tate Donovan, Josh Keaton, Roger Bart, Danny DeVito, James Woods, Bobcat Goldthwait, Matt Frewer, Rip Torn, Samantha Eggar, Hal Holbrook, Amanda Plummer, Jim Cummings, narrated by Charlton Heston. Painfully anachronistic Disney version of the Greek myth about demi-god Hercules' plight on Earth. Everything about the characters (the lingo, the gesticulating) is modern-day, and you may find this as off-putting as in ROMEO + JULIET (1996) or A KNIGHT'S TALE (2001). It's typically well-animated (and well-cast), though.
