To start this off this review, I wish I could give this movie a zero.
This is not going to be a slam of Mr. Dustin Diamond, simply a review
of what Lifetime put on the screen last night.
There are many things that I find wrong with this movie, I just don't
know where to start. I really wanted to enjoy this one because like all
who watched this movie, they grew up watching Saved By the Bell. And
who doesn't like to know what goes on behind closed doors? But, my
interest dimmed after finding out two major components: It's based on
Dustin's falsified memoir and two it has "Unauthorized" in the title. I
get it, I didn't have to watch it and there were a million things I
could have been doing. But, I didn't.
Firstly, the cast was put together poorly. The only ones that I thought
matched their counterparts were: Ken Tremblett (played Dennis Haskins),
Tiera Skovbye (Elizabeth Berkley, due to her scene when she was on the
caffeine pills.), and Taylor Russell (Lark Voorhies). The rest I could
care less about, especially Sam Kindseth, I didn't feel that Screech
charm, nor did I expect it, I just wanted a glimpse. I felt more anger
towards Dustin Diamond as a whole after the movie. I don't know if he
was that goofy on set or just pushed himself out of the group, even to
this day he doesn't associate himself with them. With hearing about
positive things from the other cast members. I am hoping they didn't
treat him with disrespect or being a complete bully. I understand that
no one wants to be the outcast, especially how the others were adored
by millions. But, with that said, just like Jaleel White with his Steve
Urkel character he embraced the role. He rode it out and capitalized on
his fame, where Dustin didn't. Lifetime took a movie that was about an
hour into a 2 hour slotted TV film, the editing was very poorly done.
It just felt like it was going from one thought to another without
changing the year. Plus what annoyed me were the conversations that
Dustin was not in. For example, when Tiffany and Mark were in France,
how does anyone know what happened? I get that there were multiple
interviews with people, but it was an unnecessary scene. Also with the
reenactments with the scenes on the show, were not accurate and most
didn't even occur. It didn't help that they tried to cover five years
that quickly. I mean for me personally, I wanted to hear about the
College Years and the New Class more and how his life altered from
those two shows. I know that his narration touched briefly on the
College Years, but it felt like road kill you pass by. There was a lot
of content that Dustin and Lifetime overlooked. I can tell that this
movie was made in a few months, due to the choppy cuts and the actors'
interactions with each other. It didn't feel real; it felt like the
Days of Our Lives. I would have wanted flashbacks and real memorabilia
from the show. I felt like I wasn't watching behind the scenes of Saved
by the Bell; Lifetime and Dustin just wanted to tell the viewers a
crappy bedtime story.
If you enjoyed it, that's great and I hope you don't take my opinion
into account. I wish that this is comprehendible for everyone and I
would love to hear what everyone has to say. Thank you!
