This movie reunites the Seavers from the long running television series. When we last saw them Jason, Maggie, Ben, and Chrissy moved to Washington, while Mike stayed to work on his relationship with his girlfriend Kate, and Carol also remained behind.

Maggie is working for an arrogant man who is running for Congress and is only doing it as a recreation. When they get into a disagreement, Maggie loses her job. Jason brings all the kids together for their anniversary. And it is there that one of Mike's adopted children encourages Maggie to run against her former boss, distressing everybody.

Delivers what it promises
17 September 2003 | by Pickwick12See all my reviews

I liked this film. It is not my favorite film, nor do I think it will be anyone else's. I would only recommend it for fans of the show. It is definitely on a more serious note than the sitcom, but who wants to watch two hours of a genre that is usually dead after thirty minutes? In this kind of movie, something more is required. The cast does well, though the plot is very sentimental. But who cares? I watched this film to feel good, and feel good I did. Alan Thicke (Jason Seaver) was my favorite character on the show, and he did not disappoint me. Ben's plot is weird, and I defy anyone to figure it out, but that is the only really serious mistake. This is not the sort of movie I would pay to see, but it makes for nice Saturday afternoon nostalgia. It also seems that the children grew up the way they looked like they would, which is comforting. It may not be Oscar-worthy, but hey, it's better than the "Leave it to Beaver" movie! Watch it when it's on and remember the 80s!
