Short Movie Review: Aladdin

A kind-hearted street urchin and a power-hungry Grand Vizier vie for a magic lamp that has the power to make their deepest wishes come true.

Director: Guy Ritchie
Writers: John August (screenplay by), Guy Ritchie (screenplay by)
Stars: Will Smith, Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott 

2h 8min | Adventure, Comedy, Family 

This was fun, I was not sure I would like this liveaction (BB was not a good one), but then Aladdin has humour and that saves it. The musical numbers were quite meh though.

I never realised Aladdin is such a moron, sheesh, how is that guy alive?

Will Smith was great!

Who was the weird Russian? that wanted to marry Jasmine?

I liked how they mixed things so not to show one origin of Agrabad.

Recommend. yes.

  1. I'm a little leery of live actions of some of the golden animated musicals after a few not working for me, but glad the humor made this one pretty good.

  2. I just read the title of your post and the Prince Ali song popped in to my head. It was a good film, not as bad as I thought it would be!

  3. Glad you enjoyed it. This was featured last summer as a free second film when we went to the drive-in to see Toy Story and after about 15 minutes in, we drove away lol. I could not sit through this one.
