ALADDIN (Theatrical Release USA 1992)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Stars ìììì

perfect animated film for children and adults—casts Robin Williams as the Genie. The Genie steals the show, but not without the rest of the animated characters giving him a good run for the money in entertainment value. The moral of the story is simple. If you have a genie, he can solve all your problems great and small. The story follows the traditional folktale of Aladdin and the Magic Lamp from One Thousand and One Nights’ stories and takes the audience on a fast moving romp through scenes of deception and betrayal, love and despair, poverty and riches, and very good comedy routines with a satisfying amount of action and adventure.
