Shaq is truly God's gift to the world. He can sing, he can act, he can toss free throws. Let's face it, the man can do it all.

Kazaam is a movie unlike any other. Now some would say that Shaq's acting is so wooden he could play Pinnochio, but I argue with that. Shaq was playing a genie, a magical, rapping, abracadabra, hocus-pocus genie. The hippest, illest, defest, genie you ever laid eyes on. It is not for us to rate this film, it is for us to thank Shaq for taking the time to make this movie.

Now some would say that he can't even act his way through a 30 second commercial for Nestle Crunch or Burger King. I argue the point again. Shaq has the intelligence and mastery of the English language that we mortals can only hope to achieve. He is the reigning king of entertainment.

Others will also say that the man is slightly retarded and that if not for his great height, he would be lucky to ride the back of a garbage truck in Chicago as a sanitation engineer. I say those people have a real attitude problem.

Shaq can do it all. I am looking forward to his opera album, his cooking show, his line of BVD briefs, and last but certainly not least, I am looking forward to Shaq teaming up with Ice-T. Shaq will take over lead guitar duties for the reformed Body Count. Of course I hope his Broadway run doesn't interfere with the world tour.

Rock on Shaq, it's your world. We only breathe your air.

KAZAAM

Shaquille O'Neal is of course a world famous basketball player and entertainer who has done it all from act, to rap to of course playing ball. I have always found him to be entertaining and believe that he is genuinely a nice guy. Well the year was 1996 I believe when Shaq let loose his rapping genie in movie theaters across the country. To be honest it is an interesting idea because of his size and celeberty appeal. But also as long as we are honest he is not the best actor ever. Still for kids this actually a good movie because when I was younger I remember loving this movie, for the adults maybe not so much.

Max is just your average kid wanting to be cool, not picked on at school, and the victim of a normal situation. That of course would be never really knowing his dad and mama has a new boyfriend. So he is having and over all bad time at this point in his life, that is until he literally falls into some good luck. When running from the school bullies one day he falls various floors and lands right on top of the magic boom box. In doing so he releases the genie named Kazaam. From there things get interesting as Kazaam tries to convince Max he is the real deal and will grant three wishes. Once he realizes what he has the time is now for Max to change his luck, if all works out.

This is a very fun one for the kiddies as Shaq really is an entertaining guy and the fun of the wishes will make it a hit with any kid. As for the adults it can still be fun if you turn off the brain but this is far from a perfect film. Let us start with the acting because our lead needed some work. Shaq is very outgoing and fun in the role and actually for his acting abilities this may be his best job, he hams it up.

Shaq may not be the BEST actor in this world, but is that really why we love him? He makes an awesome huge genie, with a sweetness that is endearing. A Great family movie, with bullies, friendship and redemption within a family, it's just a FUN MOVIE. You do have to survive the bad late 80s early 90s rapping haha

Showing that the acting skill he showed in "Blue Chips" was by no means a fluke, basketball phenomenon and rap superstar Shaquille O'Neal returns to the increasingly comfortable confines of the silver screen to show the world that Shaq Diesel is at least a three-trick pony after all.
Underachieiving alcoholic street poet Kazaam (O'Neal) would like nothing more than to crawl up and die inside a bottle. When things appear to be at their most desperate, enter the highly opportunistic Max Conner (Francis Capra) who takes him under his wing. The young Conner promises that the exertion will be great, but the payoff will be greater. Through their business and personal relationship, Kazaam gets the opportunity to bounce ideas around with a veritable who's who among Manhattan's literary glitterati. What Kazaam doesn't know is that Conner isn't on the up and up, believes that he "owns" Kazaam, and wants Kazaam to follow the letter of his law at all costs. The personal crises that rage behind Kazaam's delicate facade fuel the action of the second half of this film, leading up to a powerful ending that will leave you surprised and exhausted.
After pushing his dramatic range in "Blue Chips," many might have expected a sophomore slump for Shaq. Those predictions are soundly put to rest with his Kazaam. More than anything, this film is a study in present day race relations wrapped in action-drama clothing, and Kazaam's moral and personal awakening is at the center. Newcomer Capra is perfectly fine as the thinly veiled racist with an agenda, but without Shaq's wonderful -- and most of all believable -- performance this film could have come across as preachy.
As "Kazaam" stands, however, it is a marvel.
