Editorial reviews

"...ALADDIN is Disney's most psychedelic feature since FANTASIA, a magic carpet peel-out through crowded streets, spacious palaces and mystical interstates..."
USA Today - Mike Clark (11/11/1992)

"The impossibly simple and romantic fairy tale is just as captivating 12 years after its release..."
Premiere - Premiere Staff (10/01/2004)

"...The fundamentals here go beyond first-rate....What will come through clearly to audiences of any age is the breathless euphoria of Williams's free associations..."
New York Times - Janet Maslin (11/11/1992)

I hope my daughter is more discerning than Jasmine...

Created: 26/09/07
Okay, I have to say I am a little disappointed by this one. While the animation, songs and celebrity voices are GREAT, I do not believe that the moral- TO BE YOURSELF- is presented in a way that is clearly discernable to children (especially the younger ones) without some help from a parent. Part of the reason for this is that Aladdin goes FAR BEYOND just pretending to be something he isn't- a wealthy prince, rather than a pauper- to impress princess Jasmine. He ends up LYING to her about every aspect of his life, multiple times throughout the film with virtually no consequences. In fact, there were so many lies that it made me wonder HOW Jasmine could still fall in love with him! I think I would like my own daughter to be a little more discerning! I am also somewhat bothered that Aladdin (and his monkey Abu) are portrayed as stealing food at the beginning of the movie, again without consequences. They reason that it is okay to steal the food because you "gotta eat to live, gotta steal to eat." There is even a song about it, as well as a very lively sequence in which they are running away from the "authorities" to avoid punishment. And of course, they do avoid punishment... I don't want my kids to think stealing is okay under ANY circumstances.

Now I don't like overanalyzing Disney. But at the same time I try very hard to teach my children traditional, conservative values. I don't appreciate any film that undermines the basics- stealing and lying are not okay and there are consequences for these actions in the real world-- at least there are when you're 3...

The Best of Disney!

Created: 18/01/11
THE MOVIE IS AMAZING TO WATCH NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOUVE SEEN IT! I bought to have a piece of memory from when I was younger. The sequels are crap so make sure to watch the original first before anything. A great disney movie for the whole family, the adults will love Robin Williams as the powerful genie.

Classic!

Created: 22/12/09
This is simply a Disney classic. Anyone that loves Disney will love Aladdin. When it came out in theatres, Robin Williams was still popular and his role as genie captured all attention. Excellent production with excellent music.
