FANTASY ADVENTURE. 130 MIN. 2019. 7-9PG V. A live-action remake of one of Disney’s best-loved hits. A poor orphan finds a genie (WILL SMITH) who grants him three wishes, but the sultan’s evil adviser wants the genie’s power for himself . . .
Some of the musical numbers lack oomph and Will’s singing isn’t strong enough to carry the iconic Arabian Nights, but overall this is an enjoyable, entertaining romp. – BIANCA LAMBRECHTS
