The Bowery Boys find Aladdin’s lamp. Comedy ensues.
Hey, it’s another Bowery Boys movie. Leo Gorcey makes with the malaprops. Huntz Hall gets big muscles and then gets a hat stuck on his head. The genii drinks too much. Gangsters with guns and Arabs with big long knives are after them. Many people are bonked on the head. It’s all done for laughs, hilarity, and hijinks.
Bowery boys movies can be like Sword & Sandal movies; they are what they are, and once you understand that, commentary is pointless.
