From aboard the IMDboat at San Diego Comic-Con, Kevin Smith talks to the cast of "Teen Wolf" about the solemn yet celebratory panel for the upcoming season. This news and more in our Guide to Comic-Con.
Aladdin is a poor street urchin who spends his time stealing food from the marketplace in the city of Agrabah. His adventures begin when he meets a young girl who happens to be Princess Jasmine, who is forced to be married by her wacky yet estranged father. Aladdin's luck suddenly changes when he retrieves a magical lamp from the Cave of Wonders. What he unwittingly gets is a fun-loving genie who only wishes to have his freedom. Little do they know is that the Sultan's sinister advisor Jafar has his own plans for both Aladdin and the lamp. Written by
In the song, "Friend Like Me," the Genie sings, "Have some of column A, try all of column B." This line is very similar to a quote from The Oscar (1966), with the quote being, "Take one from column A and two from column B." Both are references to dinner specials in mid-20th century Chinese restaurants, where you could select your entree and side dishes from the two columns on the menu. See more »
When Jasmine is pretending to be under the Genie's spell, she gets up and puts the crown Jafar made on her head. Later when Jafar sees Aladdin reflected in the crown he knocks her to the ground, when she hits the ground and looks up, the crown is not on the floor around as it mat have fallen off unnoticed.

Oh, boy. He's cracked. He's gone nuts. Jafar! Jafar, get a grip!
[Jafar grabs Iago by the throat]
Ack! Good grip.

I think this is one of the funniest films that Disney has ever done. This is due entirely to Robin William's brilliant voice of the Genie. He is wonderful in this role. I think the animation is pretty fair although I dislike the "generic" people that Disney's shop is putting out these days. They all share the same basic facial structure and eyes, so there is not much difference between any of the characters. It's not like Sleepy, Doc and Sneezy, who all looked very different. Still, this is a great and funny film. It is totally clean and not very violent so it is appropriate for every member of the family. Give this one a try and you'll have a great time watching it!
