    Bernard and the genie-oh so cool

    I watched this when I was about 5, and it was the coolest thing ever! Alan Cumming and Lenny Henry are really good in it, and the ending is funny...teeheehee 'woohooyeah, weird noises etc' did that make any sense? Probably not, even to those who've seen it before...never mind.

    Sweet Yet Hip

    The summoning up of a 2,000-year-genie to a luckless lad just before Christmas Eve uses the innocence of the main character and the ''out-of-touch''-ness of the genie to highlight the foibles of modern day London. When it turns out the Genie knew Jesus Christ way back when, the (previously) hilarious takes on modern society acquire dead-center skewering of the culture and yet a poignancy for Bernard, who's only trying to establish some lasting relationship. This is more adult fare, for older teens and up, with the genie's earthy approach to life and its references to modern society and its fetishes. Much would go over the head of younger viewers. Highly recommended; this could become a Christmas Day tradition in your household!

    Fun and Funny - An Enjoyable Christmas Story

    This movie is funny, heartwarming, and just plain fun to watch! The Genie is hilarious as he experiences life in the 20th century with his newfound ''master'' Bernard. And Bernard, goes from down and out to having the best Christmas ever. It is lighthearted and definitely something different, suitable for the family, although children might not understand all the humor (they will be entertained by the Genie's antics, though!)
