Mom Partridge naked and on hash?
Let me start with a confession: I was a huge fan of The Partride Family when I was a kid. I had a Partridge Family lunchbox, I had a massive crush on David Cassidy (and quite a few posters), and Shirley Jones, as the hip family matriarch, along with the ever-sunny Florence Henderson as Carol Brady, were my visions of maternal perfection.
I can't really blame Shirley Jones alone for destroying my happy childhood memories. No, I think a good deal of the blame has to rest on the shoulders of Nicholaus Goosen, the director of the film Grandma's Boy, and the producers behind the film, including Adam Sandler, who ought to know better: first, for making a film with two of my least favorite actors - Rob Schneider and David Spade (in ONE film? Are you people insane?!?), and worse, for including in said film a scene with Shirley Jones having a sex romp with a 24-year-old. Do we really need to see that? I think not.
In the film, Jones and her two old lady roommates, played by Shirley Knight and Everybody Loves Raymond's mom Doris Roberts get into a stash of hashish, which they think is tea. They brew the hash up, drink it down, and have a wild sex scene involving a group of "fun-loving young men". I don't personally know any young men whose idea of a good time is getting it on with three stoned old ladies, and really? I don't need to. I suppose if you're a young guy getting it on with a 71-year-old, you could do worse than Shirley Jones. Maybe we need to get Joel to work up another list : "Hottest Women over 70 you'd like to do a sex scene with".
