Critic Reviews of "Fat Albert"Time OutNovember 17, 2011
A lot like the comedian's best work: amusing, appropriate for kids, and far more spiritually nourishing and less insulting than typical Hollywood fare.Chicago ReaderMay 20, 2008
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.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
The Cosby touch (he's co-writer and co-executive producer) is in full effect, schmaltz notwithstanding, as Albert and the gang run through their series of pleasantly diverting escapades.Entertainment WeeklyJanuary 05, 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.Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.comJanuary 03, 2005
Bad in such a bizarre way, it almost becomes fascinating.Los Angeles TimesDecember 27, 2004
The movie feels small and flat.Common Sense MediaDecember 24, 2010
Cosby cartoon comes to life in tween-centered story.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
A bad movie, but I've seen much worse.Daily RadarApril 16, 2009
Director Joel Zwick ("My Big Fat Greek Wedding") helms this redundant and distinctively shabby movie that wasn't even filmed in Philly.Urban CinefileOctober 18, 2008
I enjoyed Fat Albert - much to my surprise ...Film Journal InternationalMarch 01, 2007
The movie is bland and boring, relying on lame jokes and a nonsensical story to carry the day.Sydney Morning HeraldJanuary 17, 2006
The original cartoons are better.
