The Growing Pains Movie

The Growing Pains Movie is a made-for-television movie that premiered on ABC November 5, 2000, as a two-hour episode of ABC's The Wonderful World of Disney anthology series. It was the first of two reunion movies based on the sitcom Growing Pains.
This movie takes place eight years after the Growing Pains series finale, with the Seavers in their new house. Mike finally married and adopted children, all from countries around the world, while also holding down a successful job in advertising. Carol is a successful lawyer on Wall Street. Ben cleans out swimming pools. And Chrissy is a 17-year-old high school teen with a smoking habit that she stops at the end of the film. Maggie gets fired from her job as a press rep for a senator, and runs against him for the job at her grandchild's suggestion. Carol acts as her campaign manager where she first clashes with, then falls for, the single dad running the opponent's campaign, which leads to confusion and chaos.

RG's Views

Growing Pains was a mainstay in my teen years. Who didn't have a crush on Mike Seaver? .....And I always love reunion shows. Especially when it's a chance to catch up with beloved old characters. I can't say that this movie was exactly Oscar worthy. But it was worth a watch just for the sake of finding out what had become of some old friends.
