Not worthy of the series
8 February 2008 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this for quite some time but I do recall that this TV movie (the Keatons travelling to London) - released at the height of the show's popularity - was considered a disappointment.

The film was not only frivolous but downright silly at times, especially with some nonsensical plot about the Keatons accidentally carrying some 'spy film' (located in a hair brush iirc) that had the London authorities chasing after them.

The real letdown was that it didn't accurately convey the strongest features about 'Family Ties'; not just the humour and memorable characters like Alex P Keaton, but the intelligence and sophistication that the show displayed in its best episodes.

That this effectively felt like a 'dumbed down' version of the show was a real waste, and not a worthy reflection of the TV series.
