  1. Seems like a pretty cool movie -- at least, for a remake of a 1970s Saturday morning TV show.
  2. 50
    Kenan Thompson may not look the part, but he's instantly likeable as Fat Albert.
  3. Except for a surreal moment when Fat Albert meets the real Bill Cosby, who tells his cartoon creation he must go back into the television, nothing inventive occurs.
  4. Seems a little lightweight, even for a kids' movie.
  5. In Fat Albert, that trademark is resurrected to depressingly diminished ends.
  6. Kids, except for the very youngest, are going to be bored.
  7. The movie is toothless and uninspired, and as directed by veteran filmmaker Joel Zwick (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), the film is a disgracefully shoddy affair.
