Man, this thing has almost as many writers as it has minutes in it's running time, geesh!

Anyway, everyone has a favorite Disney movie, character or SOMETHING, right? Well this has to be my favorite of the classic Disney animated films. This, of course, excludes anything Pixar, because I'm pretty sure Toy Story will always be my all-time favorite animated movie. This thing is just really BIG and it's actually a whole lot of fun to boot. Filled with grandeur, laughs and even a sprig of drama, it had to be a good time to be an adult in the theaters showing Aladdin. Not only did you get to entertain the kiddies, but even you got something you could actually sink your teeth into. And lastly, this is probably my favorite thing that Robin Williams has ever done. I'm really not a fan of the guy, but this is one forum where his over the top antics and rolodex of impersonations doesn't seem AS over the top as it would in live action.

RATING: 8/10
