Sympathetic, flabby plot saved by good music and cast
27 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

John Astin guest-stars as a disguise-laden, reclusive millionaire named Sydney Rose who is apparently a big fan of The Partridge Family and brings them to his isolated private resort for a concert and dinner. Naturally, Shirley and company bring out the sympathetic side to this friendless man (who made a mint in Melba toast!) and help him to turn his sad life around. Strange episode with heavy pathos features a perplexing sequence wherein a television crew suddenly shows up at the house to interview the Partridges while Sydney Rose is there dressed like a TV repairman (why Rose doesn't hide out in the kitchen isn't explained...and neither is the fact the TV news-people somehow recognize Rose and feature him in their story!). The happy ending is highly contrived, but as usual the music and the bright personalities carry the day. Final song, "One Night Stand", is excitingly photographed, with keenly visual lighting cues and a sexy performance from David Cassidy as Keith.
