| Random Thoughts on "Aladdin"
Just watched this recently, on the new-and-improved DVD which features a restored print, and it looks spectacular. The story is slightly shallower than the best of Disney's films, but this is balanced by the sheer lunacy of Robin Williams' bad, blue Genie. Whoever first thought of putting Robin Williams in a Disney flick should get a Pulitzer, or a Nobel, or something. The comic timing of his riffs combined with the comic timing of the animators transform the Genie from a "Deus Ex Machina" into the soul of "Aladdin."

I have a tiny issue with the fact that the most recent VHS and DVD prints of the movie have bowed to pressure from activist groups and altered a line in the opening song. The original line was, "...where they cut if your ear if they don't like your face/It's barbaric, but hey, it's home." The revised line reads, "...where the land is immense and the heat is intense/It's barbaric, but hey, it's home." Protesters claimed the original line perpetuated a negative stereotype of Arab countries and peoples. But...but...but marketplaces and cities in Arabian countries still cut the hands off convicted thieves. And there's even a scene in the film which threatens to relieve the princess of an appendage. They're not being negative; they're being accurate. And, oh yeah, IT'S A CARTOON. But that's just my opinion.

Trivia

The two men in the crowd that Aladdin pushes through are caricatures of two of the directors (John Musker and Ron Clements). The original plan was to use film critics Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert, but they could not get permission.


Quotes

Merchant: Ahh! Salaam and good evening to you, worthy friend. Please, please, come closer.
Merchant: Too close! A little too close.
Merchant: There. Welcome to Agrabah.


Goofs

When Aladdin is talking to the ladies after his fall through the clotheslines, he has a beige fabric over himself as a disguise. The guard grabs a big handful of the beige fabric with the back of Aladdin's vest underneath. One sixtieth of a second later, the guard has managed to grab Aladdin, get rid of the beige fabric between his hand and the vest, turn Aladdin completely around and have Aladdin held in the air by clutching both halves of his open vest in the front with one fist.


Crazy Credits

After the end credits roll, we hear Genie thanking the audience and telling them they've been wonderful. (Added for the Special Edition only)


Alternate Versions

In the 2004 Platinum Edition release and current releases, in addition to some graphical enhancements, the ending credits are sped up to contain restoration credits. After the End Title Duet "A Whole New World" (Aladdin's Theme) is over and the credits are finished, Genie has an extra goodbye line over the closing logo.
