YMMV / Aladdin and the King of Thieves

  • Critical Dissonance: While critics acknowledged the film was better than Aladdin: The Return of Jafar, it only garners a 27% on Rottentomatoes. The fans seem to be much more forgiving, however, with a 50% approval.
  • Ear Worm:
    • "There's A Party Here In Agrabah..."
    • "Welcome To the Forty Thieves".
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The voice John Rhys Davies uses to voice Cassim is the exact same one he would later use to voice Gimli.
  • Ho Yay: Between Abu and Iago during "There's A Party Here In Agrabah", specifically with the way they link arms (er... wings in Iago's case) before getting on the carpet.
  • Narm: "Are You In Or Out" is supposed to show the remnants of the Forty Thieves planning to return to their bloodthirsty rampaging roots after Cassim reformed them into Noble Demons. But it's hard to take some of them seriously since several of them are still humorous in design, and the lyrics include "I'm the prince of generosity" and "Imagine the fear on their faces / when we drop by for cookies and tea."
  • Surprisingly Improved Sequel: While The Return Of Jafar isn't exactly a bad sequel, it's more of a pilot for the TV series and the animation is seriously low quality. It's also more about Iago than Aladdin himself. This film is more of Aladdin's story and has much higher quality animation. Plus a very good plot and Robin Williams too. Not to mention a genuinely threatening villain who doesn't need to have magic powers like Jafar to still be a huge terrifying threat (unlike many of the TV series villains).
