Product Details

Product Description


This video souvenir saluting teeny pop princess and Grammy winner (as Best New Artist) Christina Aguilera is a textbook example of the hybrid documentary format that's proving de rigeur for recording artists courting the burgeoning teen and pre-teen audience. Shot on videotape and mixing backstage atmosphere, between-shows conversations, interview clips, and fan testimonials with music videos, Genie Gets Her Wish offers the same sort of cheerfully uncritical portrait accorded Aguilera's peers including the Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync, and Britney Spears in their own video valentines.

Like Spears (who's conspicuously invoked as both friend and former New Mouseketeer colleague), Aguilera combines a curiously old-fashioned show-biz work ethic with a contemporary persona that intoxicates young teen boys, inspires young girls, and likely triggers mild anxiety attacks for some parents. No father can watch this profile's footage of prepubescent girls wiggling along to the singer's signature hit, "Genie in a Bottle," with its sly entendres ("You've got to rub me the right way...") and not ponder the meaning of innocence in the 21st century. Moms likewise may want to find a hotline to help counsel their daughters on the dangers of blue eyeliner abuse and excessive blow-drying.

However, even jaded boomers and Gen-X ironists may have a hard time ignoring Aguilera's outsized vocal gifts. While it's sobering to hear her cite such "old-timers" as Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey as influences, it's beguiling when the 18-year-old gamine, accompanied by her RCA Records executive angel, Ron Fair, leaps into an impromptu performance of the Etta James classic "At Last." If the lyric seems precocious coming from Aguilera's bee-stung lips, that voice warrants the choice, offering a tantalizing glimpse of what could happen if she successfully navigates beyond the frothier waters of teen pop to more mature music. --Sam Sutherland

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for Christina fans July 13 2003
if you're not one, then why would you watch it? Well, I'm getting used to the newer Christina now, but it's still nice watching her when she still had that teenie bopper look, one thing about her, if you look at her diary, you realize that she really hasn't changed a bit. She's grown much, but she's still really cute. This dvd consists of some songs from her 1st album, self-titled, including Genie In A Bottle, What A Girl Wants, When You Puts Your Hands On Me, I Turn To You(video wasn't released at the time) and So Emotional. They final product is put over the live so she can have different shots during the video, more stuff, less exciting. Also, the Etta James song she always sings, At Last, the only one that's live, crappy quality though, and The Christmas Song in a beatiful room with candles and a guy playing the piano. The dvd is 1 hour and 14 minutes long, almost as long as a short movie. We see her grow up as a child and learn many facts about her. She actually never had any singing lessons before she auditioned to Mickey Mouse which to me, is unbelievable. Amazing girl, with extrodinary vocal talents, buy this today!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good for the first informative DVD Sept. 14 2002
By A Customer
This DVD is really good. It"s very informative. It features great interwievs. You will find out whatever you want about her. And there are also all good songs from her first album. You will see: Genie In A Bottle(2 times), What A Girl Wants. I Turn To You, So Emotional. Come On Over (All I Want Is You), When You Put Your Hands On Me, At Last(Etta James" cover and from her christmas album The Christmas Song. As a bonus part there are two great vides (too bad she didn"t add Reflection video), and great photogallery. Very enjoyable DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome DVD for Christina fans! Aug. 25 2001
I've watched this DVD many times, and each time I discover a new awesome fact about Christina. Christina talks to you about her life, narrating the 84 min. video, and just gives you the feeling you really know her. This is very informative. It includes music videos for "Genie in a Bottle," "The Christmas Song," and "What a Girl Wants." Plus it shows her rehearsing in a studio, her and dancers hanging around, and who she is when she isn't performing. Many little home videos in it, too. This is defintly a must-see for everyone. Worth the money, it is terrific!

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and Fun DVD of Christina Aug. 25 2001
By RoXy
This video is a must-see if you are interested deeply into Christina Aguilera. It isn't one of those cheesy Unathorized videos, but instead has Christina Aguilera narating it and such. It shows some concerts, her talkin and explaining herself, and also has a bonus: her music videos for "Genie in a Bottle" and "What a Girl Wants." It taught me a lot about Christina and it was so much fun to watch. Maybe all you Christina-haters will realize she is a totally awesome person. In the video, you feel like you know Christina very well. It's very good, worth the money, definitly. It's 84 mins of good info!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not As Good As "Britney Spears : Live And More" March 18 2001
Genie gets her wish is a movie about the talented CHRISTINA AGUILERA, but with this video it puts her back in Britney's shadow. Genie gets her wish is cheaply made it goes back and forth and the picture is blurry and not as crisp as Britney's far suprior dvd's. My advice for all you POP fans get Britney's dvd's and wait for a 2nd Aguilera video.
