Alright well,
The first time I saw this movie it was a night shift at The Movie Network (My god they didn't have anything good on that night), so I said sure why not I'll give it a shot. It was almost like trying to survive the night on a bar of soap (wish I had that to eat when watching this movie). The movie had no storyline whatsoever and a big fat guy saying "Hey Hey Hey I'm gonna eat this sandwich" I might as well went walking down the street and found a fat guy doing that. Every time I walk into a dvd store I wish I have a lighter so I can burn that movie up. Good try though

This movie is fun to watch and has a great soundtrack. It is more for the younger crowd but as a parent this is one of the movies I don't mind watching with my child. Like everything Cosby, it has a message, but it doesn't get in the way like some other shows out there. I recommend it highly as a good way to spend a couple hours with you kids at home, without haveing them use you as a jungle-gym.

Oh man, I was really shocked. When I saw this movie. It lacked the same elements, that cartoon show had. The movie isn't the same thing. You may want to skip this one and just stick with getting the dvds from the show, itself. At least, you won't be disappointed with the dvds from the show.

It was a great movie. I liked the story line and I really enjoyed the Fat Albert party theme song. It is amazing. I loved, loved, loved it and I like the dancing too.

Funny and Clever--A Movie With Heart April 4 2005
By Janet Boyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I usually stay away from comedies because most of them insult my intelligence, with crude humor and language substituting for smart (and funny) writing.

As a child of the 70's, I grew up watching Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids. I was hoping this movie wouldn't be a lame re-invention like Scooby-Doo (as an example).

Both my husband and I were pleasantly suprised! We laughed our butts off throughout the movie; it was hilarious to see "Fat Albert" and the gang doing a modern, hip-hop version of "Gonna Have a Good Time (Hey, Hey, Hey!)".

The plot is sweet, but it's not saccharine. There's enough clever humor and sight gags to please adults, as well as the kids (especially if you're familiar with the gang). One of my favorite parts is when Fat Albert and the guys pass a video shop. They see that they're coming out on "DIV-i-der" (the phonetic pronunciation of DVD. It's a lot funnier to see it...) Seeing what happens when cartoons from the 70's come to life in the modern world brings some very hilarious moments, to be sure!

Some interesting mysteries pop up, too: Does Dumb Donald have a face under that pink cap? Will Mush Mouth be relegated to mumbling through every conversation in "the real world"?

The most touching part of the DVD is the very end. I don't want to give it away, but I will say that I cried...and that is has to do with Bill Cosby and the real life people that Fat Albert and the gange were patterned after.

There's not a lot of features on this DVD, and I was hoping to hear stories from Cosby about the individuals he patterned the cartoon after. Still, the movie itself is definitely worth the price, and can be enjoyed by young and old alike.

Now, if I can just stop my husband and 6 year old from walking around the house saying "Hey, hey, hey!"...

A good time for kids and grown ups March 27 2005
By MusicCity67 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
For anybody criticizing this movie because it's "unrealistic," remember it's based on a CARTOON! And for all the criticism about not having character development, it is NOT a documentary. (And how much did we really know or need to know about the characters -- cartoon and movie -- anyway, other than we liked them?) This movie was fun and sweet for me, and I remember Fat Albert from Saturday mornings in the 70s/80s, and for my five-year-old daughter. Just like a lot of family movies today, there were times when we were laughing at completely different things, and that's good. This movie is not going to change anyone's life, and as long as you know that, you'll "get it."

Fat Albert March 24 2005
By Emily R. Jarrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
To me, this was a sweet movie with some cute portrayals of the show I remember from years ago. Nothing earth shattering, but rather fun and something the kids can enjoy.

Inspiring Heartwarming Worth It Dec 24 2006
By carl womack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
A high school girl has a problem. She feels she is nothing but a loser. The movie starts with her at home, turning on the tv to see her favorite program Fat Albert, and she begins to cry. One of her tears lands on the remote and something magical happens, the tear goes through the screen and becomes a cartoon and lands in front of Fat Albert. Soon there is a portal which comes on the cartoon scene showing the young girl on the other side. Fat Albert dives through the screen and comes to life in the girl's living room. Soon his friends join him and the gang set out to help the girl overcome her low self esteem. But will they be able to help her change? Of course I can't tell you that, you need to see the movie. But what I can tell you is that if you want a movie the whole family can watch without hearing the F-word, this is it. It is amazing how you can make a movie today and not use the F-word and it still succeeds. This movie has a little of everything, suspense, drama, comedy, inspiration, science fiction?, and more. If anyone has a low self worth/feel like they are a loser, let me urge you to purchase this movie as well as the book "The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale, which can also be purchased on Amazon. I too have felt like I was a loser, until God showed me otherwise. If you want a movie that is both inspiring and entertaining for the whole family, you'd be hard pressed to find one better than Fat Albert.
