Show Me That Smile Again...

The Growing Pains Movie (2000)
Dir - Alan Metter

I recently acquired the complete series and re-watched so it's only natural that I then check out the made-for-TV movie to see where the Seaver family is 8 years after the series ended. Maggie loses her job that they moved to DC for but soon decides to head back to Long Island and run for congress. The kids are all grown-up leaving Mike and Carol free to become complete assholes. It's actually shocking at how annoying and rude they are through the majority of the film. There's nothing great about this or on a higher level than the series but fans will find it mildly amusing. Alan Thicke does make a pretty awesome Leonardo DiCaprio inside joke.
