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?

Brady Fans will love this
6 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To those who have watched the Brady Bunch...God! I can't believe it's been that long! If you have watched the series and are a full fledged Brady Bunch fan, then you will enjoy A Very Brady Christmas for your holiday movie viewing.

Shot on the original set, ...and with a few decorative updated changes, Mike and Carol are contemplating how to spend the holidays. And how would family oriented parents spend it---by inviting the whole family!! Of course, not all is perfect with Americas lovable family. Work Stress, tough life career decisions, and divorce loom in the air. But in true Brady and television fashion, all crisis are solved by the end of the episode. ....except one last very life threatening situation.

True, it IS a TV movie based on a TV series. The dialog is tin pan and the acting is grade B acting. But remember, A Very Brady Christmas is a Christmas story fantasy like Frosty The Snowman and Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. The "miracle" ending is laughable but very heartwarming and memorable.

In other words, take it what it is. A Very Brady Christmas should be loved by fans. The Christmas message is that family is most important and possibly with their help we may fulfill our hopes and dreams.--or as Alice says "It's nice to have family" If you never seen the series, you may be dismayed by the sugary sweetness of the characters.

So take a Very Brady Christmas as it is....a family celebration of togetherness that may be sometime to sweet to take, but it goes down like an enjoyable Christmas pie!
