If you enjoyed the 1970’s animated television show Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids you will love the family film Fat Albert. Fat Albert played by Kenan Thompson and the Cosby kids Magically come through the television set to help a young girl played by kyla Pratt who suffers from low self esteem and has no friends. The soft hearted Fat Albert and the gang have to sing their song Gonna have a Good Time, help 2 unhappy girls and make it back into the television set and their cartoon show before they fade away. This is a charming diversion from ridiculous story lines to positive role models. The beginning of this film is hilarious, the middle goes a little flat and the end is a heart tugger. Hay hay hay, Fat Albert must have fallen on the middle of the script to flatten it out that way. The actors have Fat Albert and the gangs voices and mannerisms down to perfection and I’m giving it a B- rating.
This movie has been given a PG rating by the MPAA
Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
