This live action-film is based on Bill Cosby's comedy and the s animated television show Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids. When her tear falls onto the remote control, Fat Albert knows he must help her. So he climbs right out of the television set and into her living room, and the whole gang comes along Rudy, Mushmouth, Dumb Donald, Weird Harold, and Bill and his pesky little brother Russell.
Dressed in their fly '70s outfits, they're completely befuddled by newfangled inventions like soda can Fat albert movie rating and cell phones. But some, including Doris' sweet and pretty foster sister, are taken with their old-school charm.
The storytelling in FAT ALBERT is so gentle that it barely registers, made up of disconnected moments almost as though it was limited to the brief skit-like segments of the old cartoon show. What little narrative momentum builds up is quickly dissipated without being resolved. Cosby appears as himself to talk to Fat Albert and in a poignant epilogue at the grave of the real Fat Albert, again not something that will be very meaningful to the children in the audience. The children might also be concerned about why Doris' mother and father are not around and what happened to her foster sister's family.
As Fat Albert and his friends stay in the real world too long, they start to fade away. But by then the movie itself seems faded. The film feels muddled and unsure of its audience, as out of its time as Fat Albert and the gang.
Families can talk about how outward things like looks and money matter when it comes to popularity and the importance of a good inner voice -- even if it comes as Fat Albert.
