So, three wishes. Hm, I want them to be good. What would you wish for?
Me? No one's ever asked me that before. Well, in my case... Ah, forget it.
No, I can't tell you.
C'mon, tell me.

Robin Williams is marvelous as the genie. Try to keep up! True, the film gets a little stereotypical and formulaic. But the energy and story will keep you entertained. The usual be yourself message at the end can be found just about anywhere, but I'm sure you won't mind.
Half the fun of an animated film is trying to pick out all the actors' voices. Try and catch Williams, Scott Weinger, and Gilbert Gottfried.
*** out of ****
