Casual, fun, and inoffensive. Pretty much explains the movie. Pretty much explains the commentary. Not very technical. Zwick and his producer tell tales about casting and the many steps it took to get "Fat Albert" to the big screen. Essentially, the filmmakers never left L.A. while portraying Philadelphia. This is a nice conversation between a couple of mensch.
What is rather humorous is the director's obsession with Fat Albert's love interest, Dania Ramirez. A thin line between puppy love and a phile of pedo, if you catch my drift.
That's about as controversial or provactive this commentary gets. All in all, it enhances the film for fans of the Cosby Creation. 6/10
