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

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

At the end of this weak comedy is a strange and touching scene in which Bill Cosby and his childhood pals from Philadelphia, now elderly men, gather at the grave of Albert Robertson, the real-life inspiration for Cosby's bighearted Fat Albert.

The movie is bland and boring, relying on lame jokes and a nonsensical story to carry the day.

The original cartoons are better.

Fat Albert is the kind of movie that gives hackwork a bad name.

Innocently directionless.

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

Its messages are innocuous and may hold the attention of the littlest viewers, but older audience members may find themselves repulsed by their nostalgia.

This a fun popcorn movie with a PG rating you can feel safe taking the kids to see. And - hey it is fun for adults too.

...frivolous but flat family fare. So hey, hey, hey-it's flaccid Fat Albert!
January 5, 2005
...Albert's jolly `Hey! Hey! Hey!' sounds suspiciously like a carnival barker's call.
January 5, 2005
The sermonizing on behalf of good clean fun and hard old effort (Cosby co-wrote the script) is as faded as Big Al's sweater after too many days on earth.
January 5, 2005
This movie rekindling of Bill Cosby's long-running Saturday morning cartoon rings of squandered potential.
January 3, 2005
Bad in such a bizarre way, it almost becomes fascinating.

'Fat Albert' is a massive bore that moves from one predictable scenario to another.**
January 2, 2005
At heart a good intentioned family film

[L]aunches itself into the stratosphere of idiocy when it ends up making itself entirely moot...
