Its ethnic "white" noise is really just an excuse for Robin Williams to put on the most elaborate, narcissistic circus act in the history of cinema.

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.

Much of the humor comes courtesy of Williams, who deserves (but won't get) an Oscar nomination for his vocal versatility.

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.

It's awfully close to being a great story, but it keeps having to settle for pretty darn good.

The results are fun and fast moving, but far from sublime.

Floridly beautiful, shamelessly derivative and infused with an irreverent, sophisticated comic flair thanks to Robin Williams' vocal calisthenics...

Visually, it's a treat, a perfect marriage of hi-tech graphics and the traditional Disney virtue of strong characterisation and colour.

Forget about beasts and lions, this is Disney's greatest animated achievement of the 1990s.
