Really? I saw it for the first time a week ago, and I loved it. And I thought the genie jokes were very current. Maybe it depends on the genie?
Yes, that has to be it. When I saw it a few days later when my mom I didn't feel the cast as Genie and Jafar were as strong (Aladdin was the same.) Speaking of Aladdin, the MiceChatter saw the show that day also and thought the same thing.
