Thirteen years later Mrs. Garrett's "girls" have all grown into successful, independent women.

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.

Yup, a let down. I'm sure it's been about ten years since I last saw the Eastland girls Down Under and I used to be a fan of the show, growing up watching it every week when it was popular... so I thought what the heck, I'd check this out. First of all, where was Jo? There was mention about her police division or something like that being involved in some murder trial or something in L.A., obviously a reference to Nancy McKeon's current work on the show she's in on Lifetime. Oh well. In her absense was Jo's daughter and along with the rest of the cast they get into one mess then another and then learn a new fact of life then another. There were a scant few & brief funny moments... but most of this movie was just blah. I kept hoping Jo would walk through the door to join in on the hijinks and finish out the movie. After 45 minutes no Jo. After an hour no Jo. After and hour and a half still no Jo and so on. Lame-o. What was the worst was NO GEORGE CLOONEY??!!?? (Like he'd actually take part in a movie of this caliber? Now that's a fact of life!)
