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..."
  • 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.
  • 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 too.
