As NBC's hit sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes" proves a long-running hit for a network desperately in need of one, its young stars: Gary Coleman, Todd Bridges, and Dana Plato face all sorts of trouble off-camera. Gary battles with his parents over the management of his salary, Todd runs into trouble with the law countless times, and Dana's career after the show meets with despair and tragedy.

Enjoyed this movie and the Johnny Carson actor
7 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was very informative. I didn't think that things like this were still going on. I thought the Jackie Coogan law took care of this type of problem. I thought the actor that played Johnny Carson was great, his appearance, voice, mannerisms - amazing! My favorite part was when he threw up his hands at the end of the vignette when he got such a kick out of the kid and asked, "Do you want to take over the show?" It really brought back lots of fond memories of Johnny for me. I didn't see his name listed in the cast credits. Tthe last actor to play Gary Coleman seemed too old to play Gary. But I did like the first little fella. Would like to view this film again.
