Aladdin is a film of wonders. To see it is to be the smallest child, open-mouthed at the screen's sense of magic, as well as the most knowing adult, eager to laugh at some surprisingly sly humor.
What makes this animated feature such intense, giddy fun is the eruption of uninhibited parody that Robin Williams provides as the voice of the Genie in Aladdin's lamp.
Aladdin is a marvel of the cartoonist`s art.
| Original Score: 3/4
Disney's latest animated feature is a thoroughly satisfying musical-comedy romp.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Forget about the lamp. Aladdin is all anyone could wish for in holiday entertainment.
Aladdin also has an uncommonly bold color scheme -- neon shades of red, orange and blue give this picture a dazzling look not found in previous Disney cartoons.
Aladdin manages to be spectacular without seeming gratuitous or pretentious.
This hilariously hip and thoroughly gorgeous motion picture is nothing less than the crowning achievement -- so far -- of Disney's revitalized animation department.
| Original Score: 5/5
Sweetly spirited, brightly funny and forthrightly romantic, this variation on the classic myth would rank among the most enjoyable Disney animated features even without Robin Williams' contribution.
An instant classic and a massive hit, it emboldened Michael Eisner's outfit to go further, weirder, darker.
| Original Score: 3/5
It's shallow as a puddle, but lots o' fun.
Robin Williams's vocal performance as the Genie steals the show in this beautifully constructed Disney animation, his ad-libbing a perfect match for the wonderful visuals.
Still one of the best Disney animated films ever made...
A magic carpet ride of a movie from Disney.
It's awfully close to being a great story, but it keeps having to settle for pretty darn good.
| Original Score: 8/10
The results are fun and fast moving, but far from sublime.
It juggles a '90s impudence with the old Disney swank and heart.
Grants all three wishes and some more besides with a brilliant turn from Williams' genie and some beautiful animation.
Floridly beautiful, shamelessly derivative and infused with an irreverent, sophisticated comic flair thanks to Robin Williams' vocal calisthenics...
My favourite Disney movie
| Original Score: 4/4
