An enjoyable picture but don't write your history reports based on it.
Why is it that it seems no one in Hollywood can make a TV movie that is historically accurate? Forget the performances and technical aspects. I enjoyed this film but why don't today's TV filmmakers do any historical research? When David is giving his famous Rolling Stone interview, which took place while the Partridge Family was still on the air, the song 'Hot Blooded' by Foreigner is on the radio. The last episode of the Partridge Family aired in August of 1974 but 'Hot Blooded' didn't come out till 1978!
After David learns of his father's death, which occurred in 1976, the next scene shows David in a bar having a drink. The sub-title reads 'One Year Later' as David watches Oliver North testifying at the Iran Contra hearings on TV. This didn't take place until 1987! That's eleven years later guys! It seems there are TV Movie makers that either need to study their history or learn to add better. A good picture but don't write your history reports based on it.
