kazaam on bicycle


On July 17th, Shaquille O'Neal bursts on to the screen as a 3,000 year old rappin' genie with an attitude in the new Touchstone feature film Kazaam. Having been cooped up in a boom box for centuries, Kazaam (Shaq) needs help getting hip to the Nineties. In developing a relationship with twelve year old Max Connor, Kazaam learns the ropes of the real world while showing Max what it's like to have a best friend. Adding even more magic to the story about a boy and his best friend are the special effects of flying bicycles, french toast and Kazaam making Max's wishes come true.
