Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Someone who hasn't seen the original Aladdin, if such a person exists, might find the new film occasionally diverting, sporadically amusing, visually sumptuous, and entirely too long. Those familiar with the 27-year old forbear may perceive this new iteration for what it is: a callous money-grab...
Roger Ebert Full Review
Average That's not to say that it's never fun, because it sometimes is—just that it's more often lumbering, patchy, meandering, and generally bereft of inspiration. It's a dancing elephant of a movie. It has a few decent moves, but you'd never call it light on its feet.
USA Today Full Review
Good ...the movie razzles and dazzles with huge dance sequences and impressive production design, but it's definitely a more grown-up tale than the original 1992 animated classic. While there's a certain charm missing from the revamp, Smith goes way over the top to make up for it.
NY Post Full Review
Good ...the family film has unexpectedly turned out shining, shimmering, splendid. Smith, who wisely steers clear of being a Robin Williams clone, makes for a jovial emcee. Smith, though droll, is not the bravura talent Williams was, and "Aladdin” is less funny for it.
The Guardian Full Review
Very Good ...lively, colourful and genuinely funny – making only judicious tweaks to the original, it's thankfully not a whole new world. It is lively, colourful and genuinely funny, and doesn't break what didn't need fixing about the original.
