Fun for the entire family! NO WAY!!!
12 October 1998 | by emmSee all my reviews

But, if you look at this film the other way around, the 1986 "update" is interestingly strange and hilarious enough to deserve a good viewing. Although parents may get peeved over its occasionally crude content to show to their children, I reckon they'll still giggle over it anyway! Who cares if it isn't Disney? Of the thousands of Aladdins in the world today, this one is the most unusual version around.
