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!"

While Full House spin-off Fuller House won't debut until next year on Netflix, we have Lifetime's The Unauthorized Full House Story to tide us over with juicy behind-the-scenes details about the beloved 1990s sitcom.
We already know the TV movie will cover John Stamos' frustrations with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, plus the twins' serious salary negotiations, but we're still anxious to find out if the TV movie will depict a few more intriguing moments in Full House history.

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."

In the words of the youngest member of the Full House family herself, no way José!
Despite previous reports that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen would not be joining Netflix's much-anticipated Full House reboot, Fuller House, there is still hope for the twins' involvement.

Leave it to Bob Saget to provide a Full House.
Jodie Sweetin, John Stamos and Andrea Barber are just a few of the celebs who showed up to support Saget as he hosted the Cool Comedy Hot Cuisine charity event, benefiting the Scleroderma Research Foundation, on Friday night.
After news broke that TV's favorite family will be reuniting in a Netflix Full House reboot, the cast cannot seem to get enough of each other! Jodie Sweetin, for one, could not stop gushing about the upcoming reunion.
