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

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!"...
