Positively Nostalgic
24 May 2002 | by (Cambridge, MA) – See all my reviews

I saw this when it originally aired back in 1990. I caught a glimpse of it in 99', and have been trying to get a copy of it on ebay ever since. I finally did, and my expectations were met. I loved this movie, despite its cheese factor. It was from the 80's, pretty much, so all of its nuances and idiosyncrasies were to be expected. The movie was genuine, at least. The cliched storylines were a very prominent thing in youth television around this time, especially on NBC (see saved by the bell and California Dreams), so that didn't bother me. Besides, I felt the movie mixed it up enough that I was throroughly entertained despite its predictability. Some of the great moments of the movie in my eyes were Max burning the steak, Urkel macking to that girl the whole movie, the rap (of course), the softball game, and the twist at the end where winnie goes for the kid from 'my two dads'. (I take it for what its worth, sue me). Also, this movie was a testament to just how talented the kid who played Urkel really was. He was the only character in the movie who had to completely change up his normal TV role, which he did successfully, plus he commanded the movie's most instrumental segment, the rap. I always thought about how lucky Jaleel White's parents must have felt, that they were the parents of the goose that laid the golden egg who was paying dividends at like age 10. Back to the movie, the music rocked too. C'mon, the opening bus scene, and than the rap, it was pretty damn good for a TV movie. Nowadays the movie itself seems like a demonic high school reunion of sorts for B teen celebs from back in the day. Weird...but it hits the spot everytime. It doesn't get much better than this, minus the slow moving and unstimulating scenes with sherman helmsley. Its got my vote, but as you may have guessed, I'm a sucker for nostalgia.
