FAT ALBERT (Theatrical Release USA 2004)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Fat Albert may not be the best in the line-up of comedies, but it is cute and heart-felt The casting department found actors that look a lot like the animated characters especially Keenen Thompson as Albert. It’s an average film, as was the cartoon series, but it engages the audience in its own sweet way.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. This movie especially fits Fat Albert fans who would like to reminisce over time spent watching the cartoon series when younger and makes a fair to middling child/adult share.
