Kazaam is a genie movie that doesn't have a spark of magic.

This is a dull, meritless movie that is bafflingly labeled a comedy.

Only Shaquille O'Neal works at his part, the rest of the cast barely work up a sweat.

It's full of special effects that are big on smoke and noise, but short on logic and payoff. Scenes are sloppily edited, as if to imply that lower standards can acceptably be palmed off on kiddie audiences.

Oh well, at least NBA superstar Shaquille O'Neal can still tell people he made his big-screen debut in Blue Chips.

The story blares its lessons like a shameless after-school TV special.

One thing is for certain: When a genie movie doesn't come up with satisfying wishes, it's a sure sign it's not really interested in genies but in putting a seven-foot basketball player in a funny outfit.

The movie is decidedly old-fashioned, aiming to send kids and their parents out of the theater feeling good about themselves.
