Aladdin is a wonderful film for folks of all ages. The songs are catchy, well-written and enjoyable, with fun choreography accompanying them all. The animation is stellar - the details are wonderful, it’s fluid and amazingly coloured, and altogether it’s wonderful to look at. The various scenes and locations in the film are fantastic to view. The characters are unique, fun, enticing and memorable, each adding something to the film. The villain, Jafar, is amazing to watch. And of course, Robin Williams is astounding in his roles. The film was clearly made with passion and enthusiasm. All around, an excellent watch. @Demosthenes of the Teen Review Board a the Hamilton Public Library

Aladdin is a sweet and inspirational story of a poor “street rat” who finds a magic lamp and a magic carpet, summons the Genie, and embarks on a journey to win over Princess Jasmine’s heart. While watching this movie, I adored the soundtrack, with songs such as “Friend Like Me” and “Princess Ali”. The character I liked the most was the Genie; he was super funny and was voiced by Robin Williams. I found that the overall theme of Aladdin is to be yourself, you are the most perfect you. If you or your kids get caught up in magic, this movie is definitely for you! @grumpykat of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

I very much enjoyed watching Aladdin. The characters are likeable, the story is unique, and the music is very engaging. I loved the incorporation of the magic genie lamp, the flying carpet, and all the other magical objects in this film. Genie is a very unique character, and one that the audience can’t help but love. Jasmine is a strong character, as well, and I appreciate her sense of adventure. Disney did a great job at developing all of the personalities, both for the ‘good’ and ‘bad’ guys, which makes you more invested in the story line. I would definitely recommend this movie to other viewers! @PenelopeScriptor of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

When I first saw this in the theatre in 1992, I loved it and couldn't get enough of it. But the more I watch it the more I dislike it. As a whole the movie is okay but Robin Williams as the Genie (God rest his soul) was just over the top. There are some hilarious moments, but there's probably a reason I haven't watched this one in ages. Just not into the whole "Arabian Nights" thing and I think that the movie moves a little too quickly. Kind of makes your head spin.That being said, I can't imagine anyone else in the role of the genie.

Princess Jasmine wants to marry for love and see the world outside her palace. Her father the sultan wants her to marry a prince. Jafar wants to be sultan, Aladdin wants to be with Jasmine, and the genie wants to be free.
Comes in Spanish language too.

Any movie with Robin Williams turned loose while a plain old piece of carpeting trucks it on down, 'cuttin' a rug', YA GOTTA LIKE! This is a magic of Disney's that is too often overlook: the ability to take an inanimate object (a little whirlwind, a carpet, a Volkswagon Beetle) and through sheer pantomime or clever editing, give it life and a zany personality. Oh, and M00nM00n? Chill out, Moony! Ya pompous-ass 'political correctness' is showing! AND SMELLIN' UP THE JOINT!

That one time Disney took on the entire Arabic peninsula and insulted almost every part of it. Let’s begin with the sultan’s daughter dressed in a stereotypical harem outfit to attract horny suitors or to just irritate her bumbling, useless father. Speaking of which, he can’t even move without assistance and can’t make any decisions for himself. Bring in the creepy sorcerer, Harvey Weinstein, who lusts after the young scantily clad princess, and once he obtains power, enslaves her in Leia’s slave outfit and in a giant hourglass (bad body image anyone?). Let’s also point out the laughably incompetent palace guard who cruelty hunts down a starving orphan for funsies. And finally the only way to get noticed is to obtain a literal genie and wish for money and status to obtain the “prize” (aka. The princess). With all these men around her no wonder her best friend is a tiger.

Funny, childish, rather fast paced and very quickly sung and spoken; the mythic aspects are ludicrously overblown; almost all of the main characters are rip-offs of characters from "The Thief Of Baghdad", which was very annoying (one would think that with the resources of Disney they could afford to be a bit original). There is an overabundance of humour and a lack of wonder and sense of magic. There is included in the edition I got an incredibly large amount of bonus material.
