  1. “Let’s green egg and ham it.” I always facepalm to that line haha

  2. I liked this movie as a kid, but the clips in this review just look stupid now. I love the “Bad Touch” alerts that appear throughout. Those parts are a little more disturbing now than they were when I was a kid. I remember that as a kid the main kid appearing in the water cup was pretty cool, but now it looks freaky and random. The Critic’s usage of the song “I Will Always Love You” was hilarious. And so was wishing the movie out of existence and accidentally calling a movie that he likes a bad movie.

    Top 3 funniest Critic comments are:

    …who apparently likes to walk around school and make faces at this mentally retarded kid.

    He’s caught by some bullies who… spray paint him to the ground.

    Vanilla Ice was blacker than this!

  3. I don’t get it he is a ok actor
    This is not such a horrible movie there are much worse once existed and even more exist now
    Ask yourself what kind of a cassette was in that boombox
    Genies existed before slavery so the whole slavery is cos you see it
    13:37 – now who is being a pedophile
    He is a Genie why dos he need a job he can make himself rich

    • I find it hard to believe that genies were around before slavery considering that slavery predates any recorded tales of genies. (Considering that slavery has been around for nearly all of recorded human history and probably predates recorded history in general)

  4. personally, did I think this movie was pretty lame? yeah.
    but most of all, I thought it was embarrassing. I mean, I know it’s a kids movie.
    hell, I was a kid when it came out. but even still. it was pretty awkward to sit through.
    it didn’t make sense in some parts, and in the parts that made any sense, it was nothing but nonsense.
    and not in a good or zany way. more like an; “it didn’t know what the hell it was doing,~
    ~so it just tried winging it, but failed on a 3 strike, before it even batted-up” kind of way.
    this basically was like “A Kid In King Arthur’s Court” all over again. just as lame, just as forgettable.
    and, as mentioned earlier,.. just as ever so embarrassing to stand, much less sit through… {x-

  5. “I guess I should have an emotion here, but I don’t want to”

    Love that line. Makes me laugh.

  6. At least back in the 90s, they were not that small minded to immediately start thinking of slavery.

  7. This is why they should hire actors, instead of athletes.
