To drum up more anticipation of what looks to be a rough-looking movie, Lifetime just released the first five minutes of The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story. Maybe the release is intended to manage viewer expectations, because after watching the poorly-scripted "fighting" scene, the poorly-scripted "nervous anticipation" scene here at the beginning doesn't seem quite as jarring. Anyway, the most important thing that we learn is that this movie is told from Screech's (Dustin Diamond) perspective. Which means that the plot lines we hoped to see in the movie — Mario Lopez's rape accusation, guest appearances from "Tori Spelling" — better be in there since Diamond dished about them all in his tell-all Behind the Bell.Watch the clip below: »
