Corny, episodic but likable.
13 October 2004 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

There is only one way to get through this "Aladdin": you must have a high tolerance for corniness. One minute the Genie says that he doesn't know what these "boxes" (meaning the cars) are, the next he delivers exactly the kind of car that the kid (his "master") wants. There isn't really a story, it's just a series of unrelated episodes. And the "culture shock" factor (the Genie wakes up 200 years after his time) goes almost completely unexplored. But the movie has an essential good-heartedness that makes it likable. It's also nice to hear Bud Spencer's original voice for a change, Italian accent and all. (**1/2)
