Mums have their say
We asked our audience what they thought of the movie and the reviews were glowing.
Rochelle said, “My hubby took our older little ones and they absolutely adored it!!!”
Katie said, ” Saw it on opening night. I held little expectatio, as I loved the cartoon. But it was AMAZING. Would watch it every day!”
Kylie said, “I was dubious about it from the start! Being my fav growing up, and as much as I love Will Smith, I didn’t think it could compare – especially not to Robin Williams! But I’m glad I went! It was brilliant for sure! The whole cast did an amazing job, and Will Smith made the genie his own! Definitely recommend anyone to watch.”
Linda said, “Will Smith was great! Very entertaining even to my 14 and 12 year olds!”
Maria said, “Took my daughter yesterday and we thought that it was phenomenal. Half way through the movie I told my daughter that we were buying the DVD as soon as it’s released. We absolutely loved it.”
