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 »
The gang is going to Hawaii and save the day once again!
Saved by the Bell: Hawaiian Style was a TV film that was mainly shot due to the show's popularity. Who can blame the writers? I mean you know that all the fans would go crazy over watching this film, we have the whole gang here on the vacation in Hawaii. Now, there are a few things that irritate me quite a bit about this film, Zack once again just falls in love so easily with a girl, so it makes for a lame love story. The acting as usual is pretty bad, the jokes from the series are being over used, and the whole cast just didn't look comfortable together like they did on the show. The story itself is just awkward and too scooby doo.
Zack, Slater, Screech, Kelly, Jesse, and Lisa come to Hawaii for vacation and stay with Kelly's grandfather at his Hawaiian hotel, The Hidaway. But they quickly learn that Mr. Worthington is trying to buy out Kelly's grandfather to expand his hotel chain. It's not too difficult since her grandfather's hotel isn't getting any business. But Mr. Belding is also on vacation, big coincidence, huh? He's in Hawaii with a bunch of principals and brings his guests over to the Hidaway when the gang tricks them into going. In the mean time, Screech is also the God of a tribe who is supposed to save their land, and they just might when the gang finds out some evil secrets about Kelly's grandfather's lawyer.
Saved by the Bell: Hawaiian Style is a cute film, but it wasn't in any way as good as the series. Like I said, the little stories within the film were just typical and nothing special. The love stories between Zack and Jennifer and Kelly and Brian were just too ridicules and actually made me laugh more than say "aww". For fans of the series, I know they'll wanna check out, please feel free, but I was never a big fan of this film. I just could have survived without another Scooby Doo adventure of the gang, but I guess just a regular normal vacation would've been a boring film.
