The girls were hoping to spend some time in Paris but find themselves stuck in the countryside with a strict guardian. When they discover that their last week of school will be spent in Paris, they plan to sneak away and discover the city on their own. Jo decides to go to Le Mans and meets a French boy, Blair encounters a local of her own, while Natalie and Tootie run into an author that Natalie admires. When they discover that he is struggling with writer's block, they decide to help him with his article. Meanwhile, Mrs. Garrett is struggling to trying to impress the French Chef in charge of the class. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Facts of Life goes to Paris
10 October 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It was an excellent TV movie.. I wish they would put it on DVD.... Would love to have a copy.... So when they put it on DVD I will be buying a copy... The show is back on TV weeknights at 7'30pm.. I am so glad it was one of the better shows in the 1970's. My favorite was Jo, Nancy McKeon.... She is a great actress... She has been in some really good TV movies.. The show only got better after she joined the cast.. If you get to watch the reruns I think you will really enjoy the show.. Hopefully they will one day put the Facts of Life goes to Paris on DVD, so we can enjoy it over and over again... Really good show, great bunch of girls on it..
