This double feature delivers laughs for the whole family with the following children-friendly films.
DR. DOLITTLE: A remake of the 1967 Richard Fleischer film of the same name, about an animal doctor whose patients' barks, squeals, and meows turn into actual human voices, stirring up the practice. Eddie Murphy updates the role as a San Francisco doctor who as a boy was looked upon strangely by everyone when he claimed he could talk to animals. Now as an adult, a near-wreck stirs something in him and suddenly he can understand the animals again, whether he wants to or not.
FAT ALBERT: Inspired by the 1970s animated television series, FAT ALBERT transports the loveable characters from their animated universe into the real world. When Doris (Kyla Pratt), a sad teenager in Philadelphia, turns on a rerun of FAT ALBERT AND THE COSBY KIDS, her tears compel the always-helpful Fat Albert to jump through the TV screen to her rescue. But as soon as the gang begins to enjoy the perks of being real, their brightly colored outfits start to fade. Bill Cosby makes a guest appearance as himself, warning Albert that he must return to his animated world before evaporating into a cloud of celluloid dust. But before Albert can leave, he must solve Doris's problem. Kenan Thompson (of Saturday Night Live fame) is charming as Albert, who demonstrates the power of believing in one's self by never letting anything (including his size) get in the way of his goals.
