Get Your First Look at Lifetime's Unauthorized 'Full House' TV Movie
By Raphael Chestang
While Full House provided wholesome entertainment for the whole family on ABC back in the '80s and '90s, life on set may not have been all family fun, at least according to Lifetime's The Unauthorized Full House Story.
Did John Stamos request that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen? Was Bob Saget telling dirty jokes in front of the child actors? These questions and more are posed in the "unauthorized" TV movie premiering Aug. 22.
"We love the twins, but is there any way you can find babies who are a little more comfortable on stage?" Justin Gaston (playing John Stamos/Uncle Jesse) says in a scene. "It's taking forever to get through one kid scene with no audience? How do you expect to get through an entire season?"
"I say we hire a bunch of strippers and install a pole right here," says Garrett Brawith (playing Bob Saget/Danny Tanner).
ET was with the original Full House stars before the show even hit the air, and let's just say, times were different.
"I think it's funnier for a man to have to change a kid's diapers than a woman, because that's her job," Stamos told ET in 1987.
