Aladdin ★★★

Will Smith is the best and worst thing about this film. The story and acting is so stiff that when he finally shows up it feels like the movie finally begins, but I wish the film allowed him to do more of his own thing. There are times when he's trying to be Robin Willaims, and it just feels like a pale imitation. The film manages to be entertaining because of its strong foundation and songs, but it's otherwise forgettable.
