Leonard Part 6 (1987)

  • Bill Cosby
  • Tom Courtenay
  • Joe Don Baker
The CIA asks for ex-spy Leonard's help in stopping an evil force that is brainwashing small animals into killing people. Leonard, however, has his own problems to deal with: winning back his ex-wife.

Bill Cosby wrote, produced, and starred in LEONARD PART 6. If only he had directed it too. LP6 is easily one of the worst and dumbest movies ever made. It almost looks like the kind of home movie that someone who is almost a billionaire could make. I don't know why Bill Cosby's great "Fat Albert" series is never on syndication, but this movie would have been better as a cartoon or with some of those characters working in the movie (like in WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT). I guess suggesting improvements at this point does not help. So if you have never seen a great genius make a fool of himself and look like a buffoon, watch this movie.
