"Kids comedy that's neither funny, nor remotely interesting."
1 stars

Shaquille O'Neal is tall. I guess that qualifies him to be an actor somehow, because I can't think of any other qualifications he might possess to appear in this stinkbomb of a flick.

Perhaps being subjected to this film twice in a day on an overseas plane trip wasn't the way this film was 'designed' to be seen. But frankly, I can't think of any other way that tihs steaming pile of cack could come across any better than it did on that plane.

Shaq is a genie, released from a lamp by a kid, kid is in danger from bad guys, genie has to help, cue wacky hijinx. It's home Alone with a big black guy in place of Macaulay Culkin. And it's as enthralling as that sounds.

"Oh, look! He's big! That's funny!" <-- words not heard in the audience. There were no other funny moments to speak of.

Simply put, if you ever feel the need to rent this title, drop the tape, exit the store and run into traffic. You'll have a lot more fun.
