Filmed after the final "graduation" episode of Saved by the Bell (1989), but aired the summer before that final season. See more »
In the opening scene, the gang is waiting by baggage claim in the airport when Zack abandons them to chase after Andrea. When Zack rejoins the group curbside to board the shuttle, everyone else has their luggage but he is empty handed. Apparently, Zack has left his luggage behind. See more »
I'd have to label this as a train wreck. It's annoyingly silly and very mundane
(Plot) Kelly's grandpa invites the gang to come stay at his hotel in Hawaii. They have a wild time in store for themselves, without Belding or anything else that resembles school. Unfortunately for them, Mr. Belding happens to be there, and they have to deal with an evil capitalist that wants to take over to build a new apartment complex.
I'm a huge Saved by the Bell fan. I own everything to do with SBTB, except for the "New Class" I even own this one, but I can't lie. This is really awful stuff. My main problem with this one is there is no passion behind it. Saved by The Bell wasn't rocket science, but they were extremely fun, and had good messages behind them. This one tries to go for the heavy message, but it just comes across as very awkward and silly. All the fun is really sapped out of this one. Is it just me? Or does Mark-Paul Gosselaar look suspiciously big here? I'm a big fan of Mark's, but it made me raise my eyebrows a bit. It just feels otiose for the most part, and lacks the entertainment something with SBTB should. The subplot between Zack & Andrea (Rena Sofer) and her kid attempts to be moving, but I garnered zero emotion out of it. Even looking at Tiffani Thiessen in a bikini gets old.
Final Thoughts: Watch it once if you're a die hard SBTB fan like I am, and then forget it even exists!
