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.

The movie “Aladdin” is a marvellous Disney movie, with great detail. The animation of this movie was fantastic, the animation of this movie is very similar to the animation of multiple other Disney movies. Overall the animation of the background and characters was very well done with exceptional detail. The movie empathized emotion in different sections with a variety of bright and dark colours. The plot of this movie was very fascinating with a poor boy falling in love with the princess and making her notice him by using a genie to impress her. The ending of this movie amazing with Aladdin winning Jasmine’s heart by being himself and defeating the evil Jafar from taking over the Sultan. The emotion and mood which was used in this movie were displayed appropriately with a mix of anger, sadness, joy and suspense. I believe that this movie is enjoyable for all ages as it is quite appropriate for younger children and is still amusing for adults. Anyone who loves Disney or Romantic movies should definitely watch “Aladdin”.

Great movie and soundtrack!

The funniest, the best songs, the best non-pixar Disney movie ever!

Besides the religion problem, which was very brief, it was a very funny movie. Highly recommended. I did not watch the Bonus Features.

This movie teaches that people are not always what they seem. Aladdin is not exactly the best guy, well at least the most honourable guy. After he frees a genie from a lamp and is asked to make a wish, he quickly realizes that in the wrong hands this genie can mean bad news. In order to protect the woman that he loves, Princess Jasmine, he must fight evil while also hiding from her who he truly is. This movie shows differences in class and upbringing, and also the ability for people to change. It is a fairly interesting story and well known by many, so I would rate it 4/5 stars. I recommend it to people with a love of Disney Princesses and an interest in genies. @The_Reviewer of the Teen Review Board of the Hamilton Public Library

I've seen this movie so many times and every single time I watch it I do not get sick of it! It is one of the cutest movies that exists, and I hope everyone has already seen it because it is definitely my favourite. The movie is about a little poor boy that is friends with a monkey and steals food on a regular basis. Eventually he meets a princess named Jasmine and she and him immediately click. Little does Jasmine know, Aladdin is not the boy he claims to be. He really has a genie making wishes come true for him, and that is one of the reasons that she started talking to him in the first place. Not only was the movie amazing, but the songs in the soundtrack that was released for the movie is one of the best Disney soundtracks out there. I'm so happy I got to live in the generation that has gotten to experience the amazing Disney movies. They were a huge part of every child's life and they continue to be today. Since this is my favourite Disney movie I would recommend it to everyone who has not seen it. I rate this movie a 5/5.
