So, last night, after months of nonstop promotion, Lifetime finally aired The Unauthorized Full House Story and…
I have a confession to make. I am 99.9% sure that I have never seen a complete episode of Full House. I’ve seen bits and pieces, of course. But I don’t think I have ever watched a single episode from beginning to end. And yet, despite this, I still feel like I know everything about the show. I know that John Stamos was obsessed with his hair. I know that the Olsen Twins played Michelle. I know about “Oh mylanta!” or “Cut it out” and “you got it, dude,” and all the rest. I know that Dave Coulier may have inspired Alanis Morissette.
And, though I’ve never seen an entire episode of Full House, I have seen The Aristocrats, a documentary that features Bob Saget telling an incredibly long dirty joke. And, of course, I’ve also seen Half Baked, which featured Saget asking if Dave Chapelle had ever “sucked dick for coke.”
So, naturally, I figured that The Unauthorized Full House Story would feature a lot of cocaine being snorted backstage while an actress meant to Alanis went down on Coulier in a theater. I mean, it had to be unauthorized for a reason, right!?
But no — much like last year’s Unauthorized Saved By The Bell, the Full House movie was notable largely for how little drama it featured. Apparently, there were no scandals. There was little to no conflict behind the scenes. John Stamos was apparently a little stand-offish at first. Bob Saget occasionally forgot there were children around and made an off-color comment. Dave Coulier apparently was just happy to be there.
In other words, it was all pretty boring. But, I still had fun live tweeting the film and apparently, a lot of people enjoyed reading my tweets. So, in honor of what the Full House movie was truly all about, here’s a collection of my best tweets from last night.
Hell yeah! But, before they get to Unauthorized Degrassi, Lifetime will be showing Unauthorized 90210 and Unauthorized Melrose Place in October! Now, those shows will be worthy of being unauthorized!
