Oooh La La!
1 April 2008 | by GOWBTWSee all my reviews

The 1979-88 sitcom get their own TV movie. And it's not bad. "The Facts of Life" go to gay Paris. An experience for the girls to enjoy European life. This is perfect for Blair Warner(Lisa Whelchel), she loves to shop. Mrs. Edna Garrett(Charlotte Rae) is working at a French cooking school where she has her ups and downs. Tootie and Natalie(Kim Fields & Mindy Cohn) help a author make it big. And tough girl Jo(Nancy McKeown) finds l'amour(Love) there. Everyone in the movie is trying to find their way in life. Each one has their story to tell, each one knows what they want to do in life. Blair who is known for her high-class style shows it off very well. Tootie and Natalie are tighter than thieves, put their friendship to the test when they help out the Parisian author struggling to be successful. Kinda ring a bell there? And the tomboy Jo, she starts to understand love through her tough girl exterior. Knowing that she can be tough and sweet at the same time. A very rare gem, but if you can see it, you'll never forget it! 3 out of 5 stars!
