Gary Coleman in the "height" of his career
27 December 2000 | by (Waterbury, CT) – See all my reviews

If you still flip channels searching for old re-runs of Different Strokes (I am pretty sure that Different was spelled different, like diff'nt or something catchy like that), then this is the movie for you. Gary Coleman was the only good thing about Different Strokes (sorry Adalaide and the Gooch)and he is the only good thing about this movie (sorry Pat Morita). Although this is a really bad movie, I have fond memories of it, just like Coleman's television show. I am sure this would still be enjoyable for a young crowd.
