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.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: The Genie's "Father and Son" song for Cassim and Aladdin, in which shows them all the father-son bonding they can do now that they're reunited.
  • Ear Worm: "There's A Party Here In Agrabah..."
    • "Welcome To the Forty Thieves".
  • Fridge Brilliance: Aladdin and Jasmnine's wedding being very western doesn't make sense until you realize Genie planned and arranged the whole thing.
  • Fridge Horror: When Cassim discards the Hand of Midas by throwing it into the ocean, it accidentally hits the ship that was used by the remaining seven thieves who evaded capture by the Agrabah palace guards and were tricked by Saluk that Cassim sold the thieves out. The ship turns gold and sinks, and because the Vanishing Isle had submerged and would not rise until long after and there's no other land nearby, they must have drowned.
  • 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) 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.
  • Tear Jerker: The scene where Cassim explains to Aladdin how he set out to chase the Hand of Midas, but when he finally returned, his wife was dead and his son was gone, so he went back to the only thing he believed he had left. Just the way Cassim talks about his wife alone, is heartwrenching.
    Cassim: I knew exactly what I wanted for my family; the best. I couldn't give up and go back empty-handed! But, the weeks turned into months, and the months turned into years... I came back to Agrabah one night, but I couldn't find my wife... or my son. I thought my family was lost forever. At that moment, I would have traded anything to get your mother back.
