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. The movie begins with Jason practicing in Washington, Chrissy is a film student, Mike is married to Kate and is henpecked, Carol is now a corporate lawyer, and Ben is working for himself without much success. 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.

the best is ready to begin!
17 February 2001 | by chickflick13See all my reviews

I admit it. I grew up watching Growing Pains, thought Kirk Cameron was THE cutest thing in the world, never missed an episode, and can tell you where I was the night Chrissy Seaver was born. I was a stereotypical Growing Pains lover who wept during the last episode and thought to myself, "Gee, they ought to have a reunion of some sort."

So I waited years. None came. Until one day I was watching television and flipped to The Wonderful World of Disney, where they were previewing next week's WWOD: "Next week on the Wonderful World of Disney..." and to my total happiness, it said: "Look who's all grown up: The Growing Pains Movie." Let me tell you, as an all grown up "kid" who still thinks of Kirk Cameron as the cute one he was back in 1985, I must have gone a little crazy.

And the reunion movie? I'll get to that in a second... it was great! Other than the magically 17 year old Chrissy (only giving it a reason to air in 2005, too!), I must say it was a great reunion movie. It showed me my smile again!
