Synopsis:
A young Sultan named Schahriar must find a wife before the next full moon, otherwise the kingdom will be given to his exiled brother, Schahzenan. Schahriar is skeptical about marrying again, having been the target of a failed assassination attempt by his first wife and his evil brother. However, he sends the old Grand Vizier, Jafar, to find a wife for him, planning to kill her the day after he inherits the kingdom. Ironically, it is Jafar's own daughter, Scheherazade, who offers to marry Schahriar. After the wedding Scheherazade begins to tell her husband a story about Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves.
Next morning, Scheherazade is anxious and unsure of her fate but Schahriar sends the executioner away, at least temporarily. As Scheherazade spins tales of tragedy, comedy, magic and mayhem, she cleverly creates plots that feature heroes, villains and beautiful heroines. The sultan is impressed and learns valuable lessons from the stories, showing that love and laughter will always defeat evil.

Don't get this - Arabian Nights review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
20/12/2008

Totally not worth watching! The film is nothing of the official description given above. It does not depict the Arab world, it is set in North Africa and is made in an ancient style, therefore shows an imaginery and limited view of Arab life and history. Poor acting. Hard to follow a story line. Not at all exotic either.
