Critic Reviews for Aladdin
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.
Disney's latest animated feature is a thoroughly satisfying musical-comedy romp.
Forget about the lamp. Aladdin is all anyone could wish for in holiday entertainment.
Audience Reviews for Aladdin
It is delightful, the songs are wonderful and the acting is good - despite Williams going too far occasionally with his buffoonery and making it a one-man show -, but there is not much besides that (especially in terms of narrative) to raise it to the level of the studio's best works.
Disney's Aladdin is dazzling, perilous and full of enticing entertainment for the family. The animated classic's loving characters (including a flawless Robin Williams-voice-over performance) infectious musical numbers and Disney delight assures its credibility as one of the studio's best and most memorable. 4.5/5
While it is overly simplistic both emotionally and plotwise -- even for a Disney movie -- Aladdin rises on the strength of its music, as well as its supporting cast (significantly Robin Williams) who make up for the main character's blandness and add a live-wire energy that remains unparalleled in animation.
