Description: An art dealer befriends a genie whom he frees from a lamp which he has been imprisoned with by an evil wizard for 2000 years for the accidental death of the evil wizard's daughter when the art dealer is fired by his greedy and corrupt boss. Bernard Bottle, a mild mannered art buyer, is fired by his greedy boss, abandoned by his girlfriend and discovers a genie in an old bottle. The genie immediately embraces the modern world and helps Bernard on the side. Christmas nears, and art dealer Bernard (Alan Cumming) is having the worst day of his life: his lover leaves him, and his conniving boss, Charles (Rowan Atkinson), fires him for having high principles. Bernard's luck takes an upswing, though, when he finds an old lamp and out pops Josephus (Lenny Henry), a hip genie. After the initial culture shock, Bernard and Josephus quickly bond. But when Bernard wishes for the "Mona Lisa," these unlikely pals find themselves pursued by the police.
