About the Movie
Max Connor, a 12-year-old whose mother has raised him alone since her husband left, is distraught by her impending marriage to Travis, a kind fire fighter who can’t seem to make friends with Max. While hiding from a school gang of bullies in an abandoned building, he accidentally kicks a battered boom box, freeing a seven-foot, 3,000-year-old genie, Kazaam, who will grant him three wishes. Max runs away to meet his real father who he hasn’t seen in ten years, and who turns out to be involved with criminals in the bootleg CD trade. Kazaam is momentarily distracted by becoming an overnight sensation rap star, but defeats the criminals and grants Max’s final wish.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: As fairy tale, buddy comedy, family drama, thriller or rap revue, Kazaam is simply uninspired and unconvincing, and Mr. O'Neal, who can carry a basketball team, lacks the charisma to rescue this misguided effort.
Rotten: Kazaam never brings off the trick we most want to see: It fails to make the jolly, 7-foot-1 Shaq larger than life.
Rotten: The story blares its lessons like a shameless after-school TV special.
Rotten: Too gritty, violent and downbeat for tykes, it's also a bit juvenile and fairy tale-like for teens and older auds.
I AM KAZAAM!
This movie represents pure 90s! Probably the best Shaquille O'Neal picture, whom he plays Kazaam, a genie who lives inside a boom-box instead of a magic lamp. This movie is entertaining and has some funny parts! It does have moral to it, unlike the movies now. The victim is a loner kid named Max, who stumbles across Kazzam's boom-box and kicks it accidentally, while trying to hide from bullies. Surprisingly, Max summons Kazzam and is soon given 3 wishes. The junk food scene is always fun to watch and imagine possible. Thank you for the HD iTunes!
I love this movie! Very entertaining !
