REVIEW: Lifetime's Unauthorized Full House Story Comes Up Empty

Originally posted 08/22/2015 12:35PM

The Unauthorized Full House Story, Lifetime's second foray into a behind-the-scenes movie franchise about old TV shows, is perfunctory and flavorless. It could be a project dumped on a director and crew imprisoned in a penal colony.

PRISONER: I was hoping maybe, if we had the resources here, to do a reboot of Romy and Michele's High School Reunion. Might that please the Commandant?
GUARD IN CHARGE OF WEEKEND ENTERTAINMENT: You will film the production that the Commandant has greenlighted and no other! The Commandant suggests that you begin immediately to cast the central role of "Bob Saget."

The Unauthorized Full House Story proceeds through the history of the ABC series (1987–95) without much ado and without any scandal. You learn that the show was initially conceived as House of Comics and that those adorable Olsen twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley, still needed potty breaks at that point in their legendary careers. It also includes this line of dialogue: "Bob Saget is Danny Tanner!"

John Stamos Admits He Wanted Olsen Twins Fired from Full House

Have mercy!

In a preview from Lifetime's upcoming Unauthorized Full House Story, John Stamos is shown trying to give Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen the boot from Full House – but was the actor who played the twins' doting on-screen Uncle Jesse really capable of doing such a thing?

"It's sort of true that the Olsen twins cried a lot," Stamos told critics at the Television Critics Association's press tour Thursday in Beverly Hills. "It was very difficult to get the shot. So I [said], 'Get them out ... !' That is actually 100 percent accurate. They brought in a couple of unattractive redheaded kids. We tried that for a while and that didn't work. [Producers] were like, all right, get the Olsen twins back. And that's the story."
