Storyline

Almost 20 years after the start of the orignal "Brady Bunch", the kids are grown up and have kids of their own. Everyone is having a wonderful time back at the family house for Christmas, until Mike learns of a structural problem in one of the buildings he designed. As he is inspecting the problem, the building collapses, trapping him inside. As the whole family waits by the pile of rubble, they fear the worst. Will Dad be all right?

Trivia

When Alice is meeting people at the airport, she initially approaches a young woman, incorrectly believing that she is Cindy, shortly before the real Cindy arrives. This is likely a reference to the fact that Cindy is not played by the actress who originally played her, Susan Olsen. See more »

You just need to listen....
29 November 2003 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

All right folks, like Howard Beale said in Network, I am mad as hell and want to speak my mind. WHAT DO SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE AGAINST THE BRADY BUNCH!!!!! I have never in my life seen a tv show so unjustly maligned and ridiculed. All right, it didn't show life the way it was...but it showed life the way we wished it could be. Haven't all of us wished that we could be like the Bradys? Haven't all of us wished that we could live in a better world where families were warm and loving and kind to each other and stuck together and solved their problems thru the power of love? Haven't all of us wished in today's troubled times that there was a better world beyond this one? Where the worst problems were Marcia hogging the bathroom or Greg's hair turning green or Jan worrying her braces made her look silly. When this tv film came out in the Christmas of 1988, a tv guide reviewer said that it was a good reason to spend Christmas overseas! You SOB how dare you say that! I say thank God for The Brady Bunch. I watched that wonderful show as a child and I say with no shame whatsoever that I still enjoy it as an adult! Its like watching old friends! This is a wonderful film that is as fine as Its A Wonderful Life to me. I love seeing them all together again and I enjoyed when they used clips of the old show. It brought back so many wonderful memories as I am sure it did for so many.
