Storyline

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.

9 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have always been a big fan of this show and looked forward to the movie. it was painful to watch as the three kid stars went through so much at home and then went to work and portrayed a happy family.It made it easier to understand their adult troubles though. I got the feeling that part of the reason Todd and Gary agreed to this was in tribute to Dana. I hope the film becomes available on DVD.Todd and Dana did a good job of keeping their relationship out of the press,can you imagine the scandal?I remember seeing Dana and Gary on Geraldo.Todd was on the phone in jail.When he had to hang up Dana said "I'll be down to see you next week Todd,I love you". I must say that the cast did an excellent job also.
