Synopsis (via Lifetime)

A look behind the scenes at the long-running family-friendly sitcom

Thoughts

The movie starts in the mid-’80s. Comedians are struggling to find a hit show while doing more adult-themed stand-up comedy at night. Dave Coulier and Bob Saget are friends and do shots together to celebrate Dave getting cast on SNL. Meanwhile, John Stamos struggles as an actor after quitting General Hospital. Bog Saget’s perspective on things switches when he finds out his wife has a baby. He needs a good paycheck quickly. So does Dave; he gets fired from SNL before the show even starts. 

Production on Full House begins. Executives think Three Men and a Baby and up it to three men and three babies. Casting begins, and Jodi Sweetin is the first person cast. Candace Cameron blows the audition well and is discouraged. After a pep talk from her mother, she goes back into casting and nails the audition. The rest of the cast falls into place, except for the role of Danny. They initially cast an actor named John Posey, but he doesn’t test well. They recast, a reluctant but in need of money, Bob Saget.

The comedians make fun of John Stamos for taking the show so seriously. They hope the show only lasts one season. At the table, read Bob Saget pitches ideas to make things more interesting, like Danny being OCD. 

The show is a flop with critics and in the ratings. The men go to Las Vegas to gamble and blow off steam. The mothers on set are not thrilled with Bob’s behavior on set. He thinks the show is stupid AF and hates his character. The show is picked up for a second season and reaired over the summer, gaining popularity.

Lori Loughlin is brought on to add more romance and the Olsen twins become a sensation. Candace Cameron’s mother tells the Olsen twins mother to renegotiate their contract for more money. (They ask for double.) Cue a “We’re successful.” montage set to “Everybody Wang Chung Tonight.” Bob Saget gets offer America’s Funniest Home Video to strike this family-friendly iron while it is hot. John Stamos is a sexy symbol and starts dating Paula Abdul, and Dave Coulier is there.

Candace Cameron is upset because the magazines are calling her fat. John Stamos gives her a pep talk that is not unlike the one that Jesse would give DJ on the show. Suddenly Candace Cameron grows up and is being bullied in high school for being a DIVA! (She 100% was.) Candace Cameron enjoys being a teen icon, while the Olsen twins become a global sensation. Mary Kate and Ashley go on talk shows and have a successful VOD series. At seven, they are millionaires. 

John Stamos sings, “Knocking on Heaven’s Door.” while Danny attends his sister’s funeral. Then he meets Rebekah Roman. (Or a Canadian Actress in a terrible blonde wig.)

Danny is having trouble juggling his jobs and family life. Good thing the show is canceled. Jodi Sweetin takes it the hardest. (Will they go into her meth addiction?) Absolutely not. The cast takes their final bows on stage. 

Two years later, Danny is doing is inappropriate stand-up, and people are not into it. His wife isn’t into him either, and they get a divorce. John Stamos is on Broadway singing and dancing. Candace meets a hockey player named Val and marries him. The wedding is a cast reunion. Bob Saget makes a toast and comes to terms with the importance of family.
