Just kidding. It never existed!
However Sinbad has been posting on twitter trying to deny the movie was ever made.Meredith Upton, a 25-year-old videographer from Nashville, Tennessee, also remembers the same film. “Whenever I would see Sinbad anywhere in the media I would recall him playing a genie,” she says. “I remember the name of the film as Shazaam. I remember two children accidentally summoning a genie… and they try and wish for their dad to fall in love again after their mother’s passing, and Sinbad can’t [grant the wish].”
Personally at first I was like "yeah, wasn't there?" But the Shaq's Kazaam one is probably what I was thinking of. (I have never seen it.) What I find interesting is that the plot line everyone seems to remember is different than the Kazaam one (though similar).
Sinbad did mention on twitter he would make a genie movie just so people would stop asking him if he was in the genie movie. People are bombarding him with shopped pictures of the VHS cover.
So, do you remember this film?
