NBC’s hit Saturday a.m. teen series goes prime time with “Saved By the Bell–Hawaiian Style,” a TV flick that makes “Beverly Hills, 90210” look mature.

The luau location hasn’t seen a hormonal invasion like this since the famous Brady Bunch visit two decades ago. The cute guys and girls from Bayside High are on summer vacation, staying at a hotel run by one of the kids’ friendly grandpa (Dean Jones).

But there’s trouble in paradise because, like, Mr. Belding (Dennis Haskins) and, like, his principal pals are vacationing right near by. Bummer!

An even bigger bummer: a greedy real-estate developer is trying to run grandpa out of the resort biz.

Guess who has to save the day?

Hunky Zack (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) comes up with The Plan, aided by Slater (Mario Lopez), Jesse (Elizabeth Berkley), Kelly (Tiffani-Amber Thiessen), Lisa (Lark Voorhies) and annoying class clown Screech (Dustin Diamond). All do what they do best: flirt, fight and look good.

The Clearasil demo will eat it up, older viewers may choke on the realization that Dean Jones is old enough to be a grandfather.
