The New Adventures of Aladdin (French: Les Nouvelles Aventures d'Aladin) is a French film directed by Arthur Benzaquen and released in 2015.
On Christmas Eve, Sam and Khalid are dressed up as Santa Claus in the Galeries Lafayette, hoping to be able to steal everything they can get their hands on. Unfortunately for him, Sam is cornered by children aged 6 to 10 who ask him to tell them a story, that of Aladdin. He then decides to tell it but in his own way.
Pourquoi on souhaite que ce film disparaît à tout jamais (Why we wish this movie was gone forever)
- To get the genie out of his magic lamp: The basic idea of doing a remake of Aladdin with Kev Adams as the headliner was an absolutely terrible idea from start to finish considering the bad acting of this last.
- Completely terrible acting especially for Kev Adams and even good actors like Audrey Lamy, Jean Paul Rouve, Michel Blanc or Vanessa Gilde.
- The story is bad and stupid and, obviously, has a very poor grasp of the source material.
- Completely terrible humor composed of toilet humor, adult jokes and racist stereotypes.
- Speaking of racist stereotypes, the city of Baghdad, which is an Arab city, contains practically only Caucasian inhabitants, which has very bad implications.
- There are also some really offensive homophobic jokes.
- The humor is also predictable for miles around as the joke always activates when the background music stops.
- A completely terrible and annoying advertising promotion with far too many ads.
- Very bad special effects, especially the flying carpet scenes.
- It's a very bad version of Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra because it tries to copy the atmosphere of this film but clearly misses it.
- The film suffers from generic and unlikable characters:
- The main character Sam is very unfriendly because we must not forget that he is a thief who is about to steal the Galeries Lafayettes and his counterpart Alladin is no better.
- Sam's best friend Khalid is a really unlikable character that you can't trust him.
- The Vizier is the villain of the story. But not subtle at all. He has a hollow voice, dark clothes, talks to himself. In short, he's the bad guy.
- Admittedly, he is a caricature villain, but this kind of villain is old-fashioned and where a caricature villain is a little funny and amusing, he is boring with his monologues that the guards overhear and his way of killing those whom He does not like. Yes he does monologues and kills people he doesn't like.
- The sultan unlike his animated counterpart is completely uninteresting, he is flat and empty in fact you can delete him and it won't change anything.
- Shalia is a generic princess and a very unlovable huge Mary Sue who just has no personality other than being a princess.
- Worse still she has no mercy for example her servant and only friend will be beheaded if she leaves the palace something she does on the sly several times in a row
- The pace of the film is completely terrible with far too long shots and completely screwed up jokes.
- Completely useless cameos like those of Ramzy Bedia and La Fouine.
- Too many unnecessary references to other films like Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings or Disney's Aladdin.
- The music of Aladdin Yallah Yallah is completely bad because it has mediocre lyrics and it is sung under playback.
- Very bad French translation with Aladdin written with only one "d" instead of two.
- As the film was a success, it had the right to a sequel even worse than the first.
- Overall it's forgettable and shows how blank and unmemorable French cinematography is like other infamous French films.
Qualités de Rachat (Redeeming Qualities)
- Surprisingly excellent soundtrack music, especially with the clip Le Prince Aladdin by Black M totaling 135,352,228 views as of August 22.
- William Lebghil's acting is really excellent.
- A few funny moments, especially with the genie (played by Eric Judor) who makes you laugh.
- Some visual effects are decent like the genie bottom animation.
- The decorations are quite successful.
- The lights used are quite beautiful.
- The film is still better than its sequel.
The New Adventures of Aladdin received mostly negative reviews, it has a 4.7/10 on IMDb as well as a 2.6/10 on SensCritique. On Allociné, the film obtains the score of 2.8/5 for 14 press reviews and 1.4/5 for spectators.
On October 18, 2015, while the rating was 3.3/5 for 6 critics, the website of the Belgian daily newspaper L'Avenir stated that Allociné would not take into account negative reviews published in many newspapers. Internet users suspect the site of creating fake viewer profiles giving the film 5 out of 5 stars for purely promotional purposes. According to the magazine Les Inrocks, “this suspicion is also fueled by the fact that the “comments” section is strangely closed on the film’s sheet, whereas this treatment had not been reserved for much more controversial productions. Allociné denies the accusations the next evening.
Despite the negative reception, the film got off to a good start with 231,998 admissions for its first day in France on 713 prints.
