Mr. Belding — I Won't Watch 'Saved by the Bell' Biopic … It's Full of Lies | TMZ


    • My kids love family matters and saved by the bell .. I was very surprised . they watch all this new gen stuff which I dont get these days ?? But there hooked on saved by the bell .. my son has the biggest crush on Kelly lol

  1. Denis Haskins is a class-act !   I appreciated his insights … I’m still going to watch the movie though !

    • if you actually knew more about him you would be creeped out.  BIG TIME!!!  his entire life still revolves around that show and he is stilling trying to make money off of it, just like Diamond.

    • ross vandenberg I think his just prod to be in the show that people still love after all the years

  2. “A building with two Beldings, which one of whom is balding?” Only real fans know that line and who said it.

  3. I don’t blame Mr. Belding. I watched it, some of too much was made out of the cast and way too much emphasis was put before them to keep them in line.

  4. I just watched the unauthorized movie. I thought it was great. Definitely didnt portray any of the cast members as bad or anything. Might of portrayed screech as an outcast but thats about it

    • +enracyLifetime bought the films rights to the *book* because SBTB is copyrighted. And in fact the sets in the movie are markedly different from the show to avoid copyright infringment. The book itself is libel. If you want a real timeline with actual research you should read So Excited, So Scared on kindle.

  5. To be honest the movie didn’t tell me anything that I didn’t already know.
    The only thing that was news for me was that Zack and Lisa had a real life fling. And according to Lark Voorhies in an interview the movie portrayed it pretty accurately.
    Everything else in the movie was like….”DUH….we already knew that”.

  6. Played poker with him at Ante 4 Autism last night, very nice guy… welcomed peoples request for pictures too!

  7. He looks like such a cool guy! You often see celebrities brushing off the TMZ crew, but he was super friendly and took the time give a thoughtful answer. Always refreshing to see…

  8. Fun Fact: Mr. Belding was the original Zack Morris when he went to Bayside
