Once again every change from the original movie was for the worse. Sexy Jafar? Why? Jasmine's song? Pointless. Big Iago instead of the cobra? Disappointing. Will Smith did his best but just can't compare at all to Robin Williams. At least the dance scenes were good.

I love this movie! So awesome that Jasmine is way more independent! Will Smith does a great job playing the genie.

I really am not a fan of Will Smith, could not stand him from the early TV days. His best show was 'Men in Black' and he was not bad in this one. In all a pretty good show.

Shockingly Awesome. I went into the theatre with no idea what to expect, if anything I was bit bored and not too excited. But once you hear Arabian Nights play, all that changes. The original Aladdin is certainly a classic Disney film, but unlike the Beauty and the Beast remake - this live-action delivered, on both performance AND song.

One of the flaws with the original was that Jasmine's character wasn't much explored- she had a man save her. Naomi Scott's version of Princess Jasmine is much more inspirational and a better role model for children. She is determined and a leader, and knows she can be the best sultan of Agrabah. She gets an inspirational solo which Scott nails and we finally get the Jasmine we have all been hoping for since the 90s.

Mena Massoud's Aladdin was wonderful as well- he delivered a cheeky yet lovable street rat character who is instantly liked by audiences.

Robin Williams is the OG Genie and there is no way anyone can replicate it. However, it's Will Smith bringing his own charisma to the film that made the Genie character awesome. He was himself and it made for an amazing character.

All in all, this is an amazing remake and it brings a fresh, new twist to a classic. The songs are spot-on and performances relatable. A magical movie.

Aladdin is a Fabulous Movie and the message being conveyed truly touched my heart throughout the film. This movie is excellent for children and adults and I'm so grateful a friend suggested it.
Thankfully, JCLS has this movie.

I thought they did a Great job on This movie. There where a few changes to some of the songs but mostly the same. It kept you in that feel good mood. Will Smith in my opinion did a Wonderful job on the part. Robin Williams would have been proud! Jafa to me needed an older deeper more menicing voice. But it wasn't too much of a distraction. Great movie for everyone! I would watch it again.

I'm not generally a fan of the current trend of remaking older animated films into live-action films but I thoroughly enjoyed this version of Aladdin! The old songs were lively, the new songs added to the story, and all the characters were on point. A+ adaptation.

Crazy ideal, why not cast actual people from the middle eastern country. Aladdin is a folk tale of Middle Eastern origin. And I'm tired of Hollywood constantly white washing other cultures history and heritage. The main Actors in this movie is from USA or the UK. Except for Mena Massoud who plays Aladdin. Over all, there are efforts made, whether through good faith or just market savvy, to update Princess Jasmine into a people's champion who might prefer ruling to romance. Enough to make you wish the Disney people had gone whole hog and just called it Jasmine.

50 quotes in IMDb already, thanks to contributors. The Genie's song caught me by surprise and did not get the lyrics the first time:

Uh-oh! Watch out!
You done wound me up.
'Bout to show you
what I'm working with. Uh!
Well, Ali Baba
He had them 40 thieves
Scheherazade
Had a thousand tales
But, master, you're in luck
Because up your sleeves
You got a brand of magic
Never fails
You got some power
In your corner now
Heavy ammunition
In your camp
You got some punch, pizzazz
Yahoo, and how
All you gotta do
Is rub that lamp
And then I'll say
Mister, man
What's your name?
Whatever
What will Your pleasure be?
Let me take your order
I'll jot it down
You ain't never had
A friend like me
Life is your restaurant
And I'm your maitre d'
Come whisper to me
Whatever it is you want
You ain't never had
A friend like me
We pride ourselves
On service
You the boss
The king, the shah
Say what you wish
It's yours, true dish
How about
A little more baklava?
...
You ain't never had
A friend like me...

They laughed at the genie's on fire so did we cool me down reminds me of the song now its summer its the last day of school today. I said it's him. People laughed that he dressed like a woman. I saw his scarf fell from his face but I didn't notice he said oops in theatres. He said heard your princess is hot where is she. I am used to the original. That's not right, it's heard your princess was a sight lovely to see. That part sounds a little too mature for kids. The elephant sounds remind me of the original movie when Abu turned into an elephant and the third movie during the wedding.we lauhed and everyone laughed that Aladdin was holding he cane in a funny way they laughed at genie saying thats a curtsy not a bow they laughed at themsaying two diffrent things its norh genie Aladdin said south we laughed too i think they laughed at Aladdin sleped genie 2 times he said don't touch me don't touch me so did we yes jams Aladdin said yam jams fig jams dark jams seedless delicious exotic jams then the genie was smiling saying move away from the jams we all laughed we have jewels and he said what do you hope to buy with thing expence jasmine says i sad you and he said you i said really i waas just joking from watching the dvd now everyone looked surprised genie said wow no no no Aladdin said moment with you are your suggenthing tha i'm for sale Jasmine asked ofcorse Aladdin said said not no ofcorse not no and then Jasmine said she has to find some bread and dollie said for the jams when the genie came up to water is a good temperature everyone laughed we did too Aladdin said see the sultan dies like me okey the genie said well maybe he'll let you be his wife everyone laughed we laughed the heardest as he was slideing backwards and a girl said to jasmine say somthing act natral everyone laughd he said hes sorry then he tryed to ask her to dance and she finish his sentence i think they laughed when the genie did the funny dance genies don't really have friends they laughed they laughed that dahia said there beautiful she'll hate them she thought the flowers are for her Jasmine tell herthe way to her heart is threw her mine and he said that they are for her and she asked him to excuse her for one moment and she was cheering quietly he was mouching of how he was saying about himslef they laughed how plesent i am he said and he said why would I say as people, they laughed that kid is contagious. She said sheep cheese and I never heard that before. They laughed at Rajah when Jasmine said Let's not eat the prince today. He needs his legs for dancing. I laughed when Dahlia said a gifted goat in theathers i didb't notic Disney World on the map untill now on dvd waching it my favorite song is A Whole New World i love the orgainal song from the movie but i like this song too i sang this song in six grade in frount of my whole class i didn't notied that iago turned big thats not how it was in the oringal movie it was funny how the sultan went pushing the bad guys the screaming was funny I didn't notice the spikes appearing on the railing in theatres. It was funny when Genie turned into Aladdin, warrior prince. It surprised me that the Genie appeared at the end.
