Good
10 February 2001 | by (Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie very much. It was a neat collection of all of the Arabian Nights tales. It was not the best quality but still enjoyable.

Being a Catherine Zeta-Jones fan I enjoyed her role. It was her first movie and I thought she acted very well. Considering the movie had kind of a childish story it was still very mature.

Overall ok film.
