Comments: This is a great tv reunion movie for fans of the show because it holds true to the original series. Sure they're older and no longer "Mod", but it's actually more like an early episode than a later one. It is cleverly based upon the 60s themes the Mod Squad was founded on without being excessively cheesy about it.
