Thirteen years later Mrs. Garrett's "girls" have all grown into successful, independent women. After a stint in the Peace Corps with her husband, a widowed Mrs. Garrett is heading back to America, ready for a new life and new romance, and also looking forward to seeing the girls again. Blair is wealthier than ever, after building a hotel empire with her husband, Tad. But she suspects he is having an affair. "Tootie," now preferring to be called by her real name, Dorothy, has forsaken her acting hopes to host her own talk show. Natalie is a dedicated TV news producer, juggling an active love life with a frenetic work schedule that takes her all over the world. Jo, ever the free spirit, is a devoted cop, wife and mother. It's been years since Natalie has had a Thanksgiving back in America, so she's talked all the girls and Mrs. Garrett into spending the holiday together back in Peekskill, NY. When Jo is unable to attend the reunion, her teenage daughter, Jamie, and husband, Rick, come ... Written by FactsofLifeGirlsFan2006

Back to the way it should be....
13 March 2004 | by (Arlington, Texas) – See all my reviews

I loved the Facts of Life reunion movie. I think we should all take a look at how things were in that show. We have all strayed so far from the morals we had at that time that there looks to be no way back without dramatic changes in America. The actors are great and I wish i could have a family like that. We should all be so lucky. Blair (Lisa) turned out exactly how we thought she would. Tootie- Dorothy is great in her part and I wish Jo(Nancy) could have made the movie. Seeing all of them back again has inspired me to seek out further options for my local clients to join in future projects in this arena. Also this move brings up the problem of family owned local business failing to the pressure of corporate America. I would also like to throw out there to do another reunion of the "girls" and their children at Eastland. Let's do it!
