As an adult, you actually end up feeling bad for the criminals. They suffer horrific injuries that should kill them. What made them so desperate to try and kidnap a baby, anyways? Maybe this is a metacommentary on class warfare, and it's supposed to disturb us.
Ed is dumb, and it's played for laughs. But it goes beyond being spacey and teeters on being a serious neurological condition that no one is addressing. For crying out loud, he says he sees his dad every day and doesn't remember what he looks like. Get this dude some help!
The adult genie barely helps the kid who released him, and cares more about manipulating him to free himself and sign a rap career. And his rapping... woof. That's the most disturbing thing about this movie and maybe the most disturbing thing on this list.
If you've seen Blackfish, you know orcas in captivity have undergone horrific treatment. The orca who played Willy, Keiko, was released into captivity eventually, but died within a year. Hard to enjoy this flick knowing all of that.
What was it with mischievous kid movies in the '90s? It's like someone saw The Omen and thought it should have been a comedy. This kid hurts poor Mr. Wilson and makes it look like an accident. You know he grew up to be a monster.
