    Scary, scary movie.

    Brings back childhood memories, all the wrong ones, sadly. Do you really want a breakdancing 8" tall genie hanging around as your best friend? Is that a healthy role model to havewhen you're impressionably young. I'd have rather hung out with Belial from Basket Case. For those of you who haven't seen Basket Case, Belial is a hairless conjoined twin who didn't have feet, basically an overgrown head whose only form of locomoton was shambling around with his very small hands. I guess the movie was named Basket Case because he slept in a laundry basket. I saw Basket Case one hot afternoon on RPN 9, and I knew the memory of his ugly yet captivating grimace would be etched in my mind forever. I knew if I grew up with a brother like that, I'd learn more about tolerance and love for all of God's creatures. Not some in your face, sass talking, jive eating breakdancing genie fool, of whom I pity. Shaq would parlay his acting skills next in Steel. Steel! In seriousness, real Shaq fans should avoid all his '95-'96 multimedia stuff like the plague. If there's an NBA DVD of him, go and get that.
