Is “The Unauthorized Saved By the Bell Story” the worst TV movie ever?
“Or is it secretly genius, and we were too tired from our Labor Day barbecues to notice?” wonders Kevin Fallon. “We”ve been left with little recourse, after spending two hours of our lives watching it, but to believe that 'The Unauthorized Saved By the Bell” is really an avant-garde meta examination of Saved By the Bell. That it is a dramatic deconstruction of the worst elements of the hit “90s children”s series. That the bad acting, wooden dialogue, elementary plotting, and impotent dramatic tension are actually an artistic wink at those very elements in the original series. Or maybe, just maybe, 'The Unauthorized Saved By the Bell' is just plain atrocious.” PLUS: This was Dustin Diamond”s Crybaby Tour of the “90s, Lark Voorhies tweets “I did not watch , and will not watch,” and Mario Lopez used the occasion to promote his new book.
