The film's conspicuously irreverent style suggests that, blithe offenses aside, writer-directors Ron Clements and John Musker...have their heart in the right place: firmly situated in the anarchic comic tradition of Warner Brothers' Looney Tunes.

With its unforgettable story, outstanding voice acting, and beautiful score and songs, Aladdin ranks as one of Disney's very best animated classics.

While there's no doubt Williams brings a new level of energy to the picture, I'm not sure this Middle-Eastern folk tale is enhanced by a Marlon Brando impersonation.

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 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.

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.

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.
