16 May 2000 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

Tonight I actually watched "After Diff'rnt Strokes - the end to the Laughter" on TV. Not taking the title for face value was my first mistake.

  • This made for TV movie was ONLY AN HOUR LONG. What the?

  • Having Dana Plato tell us the story from the grave was not compelling in

any way, but it sure was funny.

  • The chick playing Dana was not only a bad actress, but she looked like

Tonya Harding.

  • The guy playing Gary Coleman wore some kinda prosthetic lips, (I'm sure

of it), and sat in oversized furniture and stood in holes a lot. Awful. (Sorry Mr. Coleman, i wasn't knocking you. You actually KICK ASS )

High Point of the whole thing: Todd Bridges wins the "Biggest Balls on The Planet" award for: Playing the crack dealer that SELLS CRACK TO THE ACTOR PLAYING HIM AS A JUNKIE IN THE SPECIAL
