Not much of a movie, but maybe it'll shame TV Land into putting the gang back on the tube.

So bad and gutless that it makes one wonder if director Joel Zwick intentionally tried to make the least interesting, and most grating movie possible.

The movie is sweet and gentle, but not very compelling.

A thin bit of nostalgia.

Squeaky-clean but uninspired.

I'm told the original Fat Albert had wit and a keen sense of the problems kids deal with, but the movie's 'real world' is a bland, idealized place where the biggest problem young people face is getting picked on.

Fails in every possible way -- fails to be funny, fails to be interesting, fails to speak to its potential audience. It is, as Mushmouth would say, a pebeece of crabap.

The screen version of the animated television series Fat Albert opens with a glint of promise. From there, the movie, alas, just lies down and dies.

Director Joel Zwick ("My Big Fat Greek Wedding") helms this redundant and distinctively shabby movie that wasn't even filmed in Philly.

Fat Albert manages to talk down to two generations of pop-cult consumers - the Boomers and the Gen-Xers - while leaving no reason for their uncategorized offspring to join in on the Hey! Hey! Hey! chants.

...frivolous but flat family fare. So hey, hey, hey-it's flaccid Fat Albert!

A bad movie, but I've seen much worse.

Can Cosby seriously believe that this is an idea worthy of his most lasting creation?

[L]aunches itself into the stratosphere of idiocy when it ends up making itself entirely moot...
January 10, 2005
... reminiscent of The Brady Bunch movie, but there's no sense of satire or self-parody to the execution.

A 10-minute cartoon expanded into an especially long and deadly after-school special.
