After the graduation scene, when Dustin does his "Time out!", all of the cast members are standing and talking to each other. After Dustin says "Time in!" the director comes and yells, "That is a wrap!" and everyone is suddenly seated neatly in chairs on the set. In the next shot of the stage, everyone's standing and mingling again. See more »

Not bad at all, but lacks a point...
22 August 2015 | by insomniac_rodSee all my reviews

I am aware it is Dustin's version; however, it misses the point on describing the real problems and frictions between the cast. They barely display the character's personalities, hobbies, and their life outside the set, which would be helpful to understand some issues.

Instead, the script focuses on describing things we already knew. I know, it is Dustin's story, but a little more objectivity wouldn't hurt.

The acting is surprisingly good, specially the young man that plays Dustin. The rest of the cast does perfectly their job although it seems they haven't seen the original Saved by the Bell series.

I would definitely recommend this one for fans of the series, like myself. I grew watching this series and became part of my life, so, getting extra information after 22 years was a good nostalgic touch, although I expected to see more of the "private" details.
