"Aladdin" is a great movie in every way. It tells a great story of how being yourself is sometimes the best thing to do. The Genie gives the movie a lot of playful humor. All the characters are interesting and the movie has some great effects and graphics. Also, the songs are perfect for the movie, especially "A Whole New World." The movie ranges from humorous such as with the Genie's antics, to exciting such as the carpet ride through a place that is self-destructing. This movie is one of my daughter favorites.
Aladdin was 1992's biggest moneymaker. I remember this because I was waiting anxiously for the VHS to come out. Instead of fighting their own standards of a superior romance film like The Little Mermaid or Beauty and the Beast, the company tried to open to another category: a comedy. As everyone can see, the beginning in Aladdin is not as interesting as The Mermaid's or mysterious as Beauty's. In fact, there are few scenes in Aladdin such as the narration and other sequences which just don't follow the standards of animation set by 1989's The Little Mermaid or 1991's Beauty and the Beast. But the cave of wonders scenes and the rest of the movie usually ARE impressive and visual. The songs are good, good and quite memorable. They lack Under the Sea or Belle but still, they are good and Aladdin won even more prizes than Mermaid and Beauty. Aladdin is indeed one off Disney's all time favorites. The characters are indeed memorable and beloved. Jafar is a remarkable villain. Aladdin ends up also being true classic.

There's only one major studio in Hollywood today that delves into the complexities of mental disorders and their effects on both patients and their families, and that's Disney. After the heartfelt story of Ariel in the Little Mermaid coming to grips with her hoarding disorder, and the plight of Belle in Beauty and Beast struggling with Stockholm Syndrome, Aladdin combines multiple neuroses on a the back of a clever and engaging update to Hamlet.      The Prince here is …

I sure hope so, because Disney's take on "Aladdin" is a wonderful rollercoaster ride of a tale. Tucked securely in the middle of Disney's animated "Renaissance" in the late 80's to mid 90's, this fun-filled story pops off of the screen thanks to a wonderful digital transfer that highlights both the traditional animation of Disney and the (at the time) growing digital animation of Pixar. This is most evident in the Cave of Wonders, where Aladdin, Abu and the Magic Carpet go for a wild ride as the …

This is one of the better of the new breed of Disney cartoons. A good story, good characters (Jafar is a great villian) and voices. I would have rated this higher except that at times Robin Williams (as the Genie) talks to fast and overblows his role. As far as kids go, my kids like this one but not as much as The Lion King and Toy Story which they have seen hundreds of times. I would say that they watched Aladdin less than a handful of times.

About this topic


Disney's 1992 animated feature is a triumph of wit and skill. The high-tech artwork and graphics look great, the characters are strong, the familiar story is nicely augmented with an interesting villain (Jafar, voiced by Jonathan Freeman), and there's an incredible hook atop the whole thing: Robin Williams's frantically hilarious vocal performance as Aladdin's genie. Even if one isn't particularly moved by the love story between the title character (Scott Weinger) and his girlfriend Jasmine (Linda Larkin), you can easily get lost in Williams's improvisational energy and the equally entertaining performances of Freeman and Gilbert Gottfried (as Jafar's parrot).--Tom Keogh
