Aladin - Notepad

wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?) - though if you like neat graphics, try the theaters
quick review:

A fun movie for kids and very likely the accompanying adults will not get bored either. Yeah-yeah-yeah, it's the same ol' story, same ol' chosen one saving the world. But it's done very well visually. If only some more energy was spent on the writing.
