Better than I thought, which isn't saying much
15 November 1999 | by (Richmond VA USA) – See all my reviews

This movie ended up better than I expected, after the annoying advertising blitz that ABC used to promote it.

Basically, it ended up being more "The Danny Bonnaduce Story" than anything else, although David Cassidy played an important second in the storyline.

The lady who played Shirley Jones had her mannerisms down pat, and came across very convincingly. Less convincingly (and absolutely unimportant) was the heavily-used-in-promos showdown on a back lot between the Bradys and Partridges.

Overall, a passable movie of the week; a so-so movie about a so-so series.
