Last night, Lifetime aired The Unauthorized Full House Story, a dishy TV movie recreating behind-the-scenes happenings of the ABC sitcom Full House, which ran from 1987 to 1995. There was nothing too scandalous depicted, but we did learn (if this movie is to be trusted) that Bob Saget regularly conducted himself in an R-rated manner on a G-rated set, Dave Coulier farted a lot, and John Stamos carried a torch for his one-time, real-life girlfriend Lori Loughlin, who played his love interest on the show. The absolute highlight of the two-hour movie was the scene in which the actors playing Saget, Coulier, and Stamos got bored during a taping and decided to do whip-its. It climaxed with a homo-bro-rotic canned whipped cream fight.

As Lifetime movies go, this one was consistently entertaining. Shelby Armstrong, who played the younger Candace Cameron, was pitch-perfect in annoyance. She out-DJed DJ with that whine.

If there is ever a Small Wonder Lifetime movie, they should have Armstrong back to play Jamie and Harriet.

Jaime Schneider, who played the older Andrea Barber, was also a total ringer.

That just is Kimmy Gibbler.

Less successful were the movie’s depictions of Paula Abdul and Rebecca Romijn, who both dated Stamos (the latter eventually married him):

Also, they didn’t even try with this set, which is laid out backwards (the actual Full House living room was on the left):

This set reminds me most of Blossom. Can anyone confirm/deny?

Some more highlights in the reel below. Unfortunately, a Jodie Sweetin/Stephanie Tanner meth freak out was nowhere to be found.
