No valuable object is secure in the bazaars of Agrabah as long as Aladdin and his pet monkey Abu are on the hunt. The street urchin is the king of pickpocketing; nevertheless, he is convinced that he is meant for something more!

One day, Aladdin saves the beautiful Jasmin from trouble in the streets of Agrabah thinking she is the handmaid of the princess. In truth, the girl is the Sultan’s daughter herself, who has snuck out of the palace in disguise to explore the city, tired of her sheltered life. To see her again, Aladdin risks every­thing and decides to sneak into the palace. Yet the guards capture him and take him into the desert. His only way to get out of trouble and to become rich at the same time seems to be following the commands of the mischievous Grand Vizier Jafar: “Bring me the magic lamp hidden in the Cave of Wonders!”

“It’s clumsy, but in a charming way,” a palace servant declares about halfway through “Aladdin,” and I’m inclined to agree. (New York Times)
