Somebody Wants to Love You
22 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

Now that he has a best-selling record, teenage girls keep running after Keith (David Cassidy). He wants Kincaid (Dave Madden) to get rid of the groupies. The jealous manager asks Keith, "You do like girls, don't you?" Mother Shirley (Shirley Jones) believes the girls will thin out when the novelty wears off. She invites groupie Claire Wilcox (as Cathy) in, to dreamily stare at Keith. While running away from frenzied fans, Keith takes refuge in a women's underwear shop. "I think I'm in love," he proclaims after meeting pretty Lane Bradley (as Janet). Keith is turned on because she doesn't know he is a pop star. Ten-year-old little brother Danny (Danny Bonaduce) tries to help Keith work out his romantic problems. The smug, self-centered script is nicely acted by Mr. Cassidy, at least. The song "Somebody Wants to Love You" is filler.
