In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
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
When Genie outfits Aladdin, the screen behind them has two pictures on it, one with Genie in a shirt, tie and eye-patch. This is a reference to a very famous ad campaign by David Ogilvy known as "The Man In The Hathaway Shirt". See more »
As Aladdin has jumped off the rooftop and is falling through multiple lines of clothing, he falls to the second set of two side by side clotheslines, which he slides down (he has a white bra on at this point). Aladdin heads straight for a window. A woman hanging clothing out that window drops her clothespins and clothing and quickly shuts the shutters. From Aladdin's view approaching the window there are two clotheslines tied to a peg above the window completely covered in clothing. When the angle switches to the side to show the impact, now there is only one clothesline going to that peg with no clothes hanging on it. Also how does anyone hang clothes out on a clothesline that is tied to a peg on the building with no pulley? Do they go out hand over hand? See more »
Ahh! Salaam and good evening to you, worthy friend. Please, please, come closer.

Too close! A little too close.

There. Welcome to Agrabah.

Theatrical version for the opening Arabian Nights song originally had the lines "Where they cut off your ear, if they don't like your face". But the line was changed to "Where it's flat and immense, and the heat is intense." for all home video releases due to controversy from Arab groups who called the line racist. See more »
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!
