DuckTales: the Movie - Treasure of the Lost Lamp (1990, USA) C-74m. ** D: Gaetan Brizzi, Paul Brizzi, Bob Hathcock, Clive Pallant, Mathias Marcos Rodric, Vincent Woodcock. Starring (the voices of) Alan Young, Rip Taylor, Christopher Lloyd, Russi Taylor. Big-screen adaptation of Disney's TV series, produced by their television animation department. Scrooge McDuck and his nephews go to Egypt to find a legendary treasure, discover magical lamp with genie inside. Retains the fast-pace of the TV episodes, but mostly to negative effect. Plot seems rushed and underdeveloped. Still, a cute adventure movie for kids and fans of the Disney ducks.
