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?

So Bad, it is good.
8 December 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I just watched this awful awful movie again last night. The dysfunctionality of the clan, which was somewhat hidden, was in full force for viewing (dis)pleasure.

Marcia's husband lost his job, and she just ignored his pain, and talked up her family christmas plans. Jan was a cruel bitch to her husband. Marcia's kid tormented Greg's kid, calling him the "slug". Greg not only allowed it, but didn't correct the brat. Jan and her husband reconcile in a cheesy way, with Carol Brady present, and she encourages them to be late for breakfast to have sex.

Greg's wife works with him as his nurse.(how creepy is that by the way? A gynecologist who works with his wife as he examines women's privates is pretty ummm odd). Greg has shlepped to her family's house for christmas several years straight, but she refuses to go with him, so he and the kid go with out her.

The classic moment in this movie is the Christmas tree scene. The "men" walk into the house carrying the tree, singing the first few lines of "Deck the Halls", the women, pick up in harmony, in time, and they perform a male/female duet. Even Peter's girlfriend, who had never been there before, knew when it was her turn to sing.

To sum up, the writer has some deep seated issues with women. They are pretty much all terrible. At the end, Sam, who had been cheating around, offers a quick apology to Alice, she accepts, and 2 seconds later, Carol doesn't allow them time to reconnect, because it's time for another sing a long.

This is a very very very bad movie. I watch it every year. I recommend it!
