Quotes

Swedish Roommate: What were you saying before about vaginal theory?
Aladdin: [Drunk and high, having sex with a different swedish roommate] Vaginal theory. Here it goes: A pussy is a vagina that comes pre-moistened, and as it dries out turns into a vagina again.
British Druggie Guy: I'm watching that pussy turn into a vagina right before my very own eyes, mate!
Aladdin: A twat is something a 3-year-old has and a cunt is a mans mouth where a vagina should be.
Cunt: [From between Swedish Roommate's legs] You stupid cunts, cunts all of you! Hahaha, right mate?
Swedish Roommate: ...

Very weird and visionary film - nothing quite like it
24 April 2016 | by groorg1See all my reviews

Aladdin as you have never seen it, as a parable for modern want and waste. Both grim and uplifting, the flawed characters in this film are oddly familiar, if literally cartoonish.

I've seen Green's previous film (the Wrong Ferarri) and enjoyed it. But Adam Green's Aladdin is a giant leap forward. Green himself seems to have led every aspect of this film - acting, set/costumes, music, script, and production, and the result is a unique ejection of the director's brain onto the screen. There's nothing quite like this movie out there, and I'm disappointed it didn't get a bigger run in theaters. The best part is that it is never boring, as weird as it gets at times.
