The first half was funny. The last half a little slow, but still fun. It was like Saturday morning when I was growing up!

"Fat Albert" borrows freely from "The Purple Rose of Cairo" and "Pleasentville", but such potential narrative sophistication is negated by pedestrian-level dialogue and lowest common denominator plotting. The filmmakers couldn't think "Fat Albert" borrows freely from "The Purple Rose of Cairo" and "Pleasentville", but such potential narrative sophistication is negated by pedestrian-level dialogue and lowest common denominator plotting. The filmmakers couldn't think of anything more interesting than to send the kids to a block party and the mall. Intentional or not, when the young girl explains to her older sister that Fat Albert can't eat, you can't help but think of Joan Allen in the Gary Ross film, which would've allowed Albert to stay in the real world, if the double entendre was acknowledged and performed. But the film's real problem is that we're not sure about the rules of the movie's universe. A few kids recognize that they're cartoons-come-to-life, but most of them act as if they're real people.

Slow pacing almost kills this movie, but it is a touching story if you can suspend your disbelief.

It was funny and cute in a sense that it was her grandfather and his friends based on the characters for the Fat Albert show.

Like Garfield, Fat Albert deserved much better. Good thing he's not that close to the negatives, but he's way far enough from becoming to the positives.
