Why Did You Have To Ruin The Movie Danny?
8 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

This little TV movie about The Partridge Family,a hard to believe irony if any,is ruined by the showy selfishness of Danny Bondaduce.Look at the end Bondaduce claims in his cornball narration"well that's my story",and that's the problem with this movie.It IS his story being told.It isn't about Shirley Jones,or Susan Dey,or the other child actos on the show.It was all about Bondaduce and the people that were the center of his life,the selfish David Cassidy,Bondaduce's surrogate father David Madden and his dysfuntional family. Now it is too bad that his father hated him and the rest of his family didn't amount to very much(He portrayed them that way ,that's not my opinion).But we wanted to see the Partridge Family aside from Bondaduce and Cassidy and we didn't see that.The other actors on the show,even Shirley Jones,didn't get their stories told from what would have been an balanced film ,except this movie's screenplay is written by and for Bondaduce. The other child actors have been forgotten,Susan Dey doesn't even talk about the show anymore,and the show's makers seemed to wanted to keep their distance from it.Therefore a real presentation about the makings of the Partridge Family was not told here.You got Danny Bondaduce's Partridge Family life story instead.His post Partridge Family life story is one better left unsaid and unseen but the real Partidge Family story will have to made and seen in the future.
