They wrecked the plot. Rather than doing a live-action adtaptation of the Fat Albert characters in their New York setting, they have them as fiction characters, which a troubled girl summons from her television set to seek guidance. It's so lame. Once the Fat Albert gang enters our world, they are culture-shocked, and cause some fun and trouble of their own. No thanks. After all those years, they should'nt have made a Fat Albert movie like this.
