Aladdin (1992)


A kindhearted street urchin and a power-hungry Grand Vizier vie for a magic lamp that has the power to make their deepest wishes come true. (IMDb)
The romance plot is a little off (Jasmine obviously liked him as a pauper, so why was he such a haughty prince–especially after she showed her distaste? Well, a magic carpet ride will solve everything), but the two are sympathetic at least (see Aladdin’s fun opening song and Jasmine’s “well maybe I don’t want to be a princess!”). Elsewhere, the excellent villain, the hilarious Genie, and intriguing magical underpinnings help create a twisty, exciting adventure punctuated by great humour.
7.5/10 (Really Good)
