Worth a second showing
7 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

The movie showed a lot more depth than the recent David Cassidy Story and addressed one of the major flaws in that movie. By focusing on only the 4 years of the Partridge Family, it gave a more complete portrait of the Partridge Family phenomena. From recent interviews of cast members, "Come On Get Happy" seemed pretty accurate. Even so, like the David Cassidy Story, it tried to cover too much territory. They should have focused more on 1 or 2 of the characters - like Cassidy and Dey or Danny Bonaduce - instead of cramming all the characters in 1 movie. (I'm still waiting for the Danny Bonaduce story which I think has the most dramatic appeal).

Second, they didn't really show the sheer hysteria surrounding the program, which was covered better in the DC Story. They also didn't show the emotional devastation of the death of the fan at Cassidy's farewell show or cover the greed of the producers. All in all, I'd give it 3 stars. It's worth a second showing.
