    Comments about Growing Pains The Movie:

    This is a GREAT DVD! Really took me back, having grown up watching the original series. And it takes place not-so-long after the series ended. I never realized they had come together to make this movie, but I'm very glad they did.

    Comments about Growing Pains The Movie:

    I would recommend this movie based solely on the hope that by buying it you will be upping the odds of the rest of the series being released on DVD. It's a weird film, to say the least. Someone had the bright idea to get the gang back together, which is good, but also to make Growing Pains more serious. The result is as follows: it's not a very good drama, it's not a very good comedy, it's just a bland mashup with too much focus on unimaginative new characters. All of the Seavers act somewhat out of character and there are lots of emotions flying around. There's talk of a scam at the end-scams being the currency of classic Growing Pains, of course-but it's a total dud. Most of the details of this movie are ignored completely in the next one (Return of the Seavers), so I can only assume that the cast and crew weren't very pleased with the way Growing Pains: the Movie turned out. Still, it is a piece of the whole picture, so if you're a die-hard fan you'll want to check it out, especially so you can appreciate the quality of Return of the Seavers by comparison.
