In the scene where Danny's mother is talking on the phone with his father, the television in the background is showing news footage of President Nixon leaving the White House after resigning from office. In this scene, "The Partridge Family" was still in production. Nixon left office in August 1974. The final episode of "The Partridge Family" aired in March 1974. See more »
Call me crazy, but I like this movie. It has some very light hearted bits and some very funny scenes as through the eyes of Danny Bonaduce's memories of getting on the show, working on it,getting kidnapped by Keith...whoops,I mean,David Cassidy, a tough family experience as a childhood TV star and the disappointment of the series's end. I was never a big fan of the series, but I did like some of the songs and now thanks to the movie I know some behind the scenes trivia about the music. All of the actors are dead-on lookalikes good enough to bring this series back to TV, especially the lovely Kathy Wagner who plays Susan Dey. Someone please thank Danny for peeking in on Susan for the peeping-tom scene. As a kid, Danny is portrayed like some sort of kid prodigy, which he probably was, and as well sets up the preminitions of what was set to happen to him in the later years of his life.Hey, I think I love,,,,,,,this movie !
