The Growing Pains Reunion Movie

In the villa, Bad Wig Ben says that Jason will be mad at Mike for arriving late. Carol corrects him, saying that Mike will show up at the last minute and say something charming, and all will be forgiven. Bad Wig Ben comments, "You're not dating anybody, huh?" Like, ha ha. Not. At least the writers have learned that it's not cool to make comments about Carol's weight anymore, so now all they have left is her lack of a man to blame for her attitude.

Maggie and Jason arrive back at the villa and are greeted by the kids, minus Mike. Carol gripes again about Mike being late, and Chrissy says, "Mike has a more hectic life than you do." Carol retorts, "How so?" Okay, maybe I still identify with Carol a little too much, but shut up, Chrissy. Mike, Kate, and their multicultural kids arrive with much fanfare. We get a lovely closed-door shot of one of the kids telling Mike she doesn't "want to flush [her] poops. It makes them sad." Ah, the poop joke. Such a staple. Carol expositions that Mike and Kate "adopted these kids from all over the world."

Chrissy and Ben set the table. Chrissy tells Ben that their parents were discussing his lack of initiative earlier. Jason comes in and tells Ben that they'll discuss his business later (and again with the lame dot-com joke).

Maggie is making food with one of Mike's kids, Evie, who is neither cute nor funny. Evie says to Maggie, "Daddy told me they canned your old bum." Nice. Evie tells Maggie she thinks Maggie should have her boss' job. They're interrupted by some of the kids yelling and screaming, "It's my turn!" Maggie looks thoughtful. You see, because it's her turn, now. See what they did there?

Ben wants to sit at the kids' table for dinner. Who, past the age of ten, ever wanted to sit at the kids' table? I never did, until I turned about sixteen, and then I got to overhear all the dirt from my older cousins. Kate works in a free promo for The Disney Channel. (This movie aired as part of the Disney Sunday Night Movie, and repeats of Growing Pains air on the Disney Channel.) Jason makes everyone go around the table and say what they are thankful for. Jason gives thanks to Maggie, but not before being interrupted by the obnoxious kids. Maggie takes her turn next, and announces that they are moving back to Long Island so that she can run for Congress against her old boss, Mac Robinson. Everyone just stares at her. Apparently, her announcement meant that no one else had to participate in Jason's lame ritual.
