Trivia

The Brady's cars are an Oldsmobile Cutlass convertible and a Mercury Montego station wagon. Both are models from the early 70s, when the original show took place. See more »

Goofs

The Brady's try to raise $20,000 to save their house. When Mike and Carol are talking in bed, Mike says to Carol, "Penny for your thoughts." "Twenty thousand of them," which Carol was referring to the money they needed, however, 20,000 pennies is $200, not $20,000. Two million pennies would be $20,000. See more »

Really good....but you gotta see the sequel!
17 January 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When I first heard about this film being in production, I was about as happy as you'd be if you heard about a giant meteorite heading to destroy the Earth! After all, despite the original show having a bit of a following, the show was completely saccharine and impossible for anyone other than kids to like. So why, oh why, would I want to see this?! Well, it turns out I was wrong--wrong because the film WAS good to watch and wrong because this was NOT the same Brady Bunch I remember from my youth.

So what was so right about this film? Well, first it was not a remake of the show, but a parody of it--the only way this could have worked. In this case, it's the same sort of Brady family BUT they are living exactly as they did in 1970--despite it being 1995. In other words, the clothes, the language, the actors and their spot-on impersonations of the originals (I particularly loved Gary Cole and the way he talked just like Mike Brady) and the music are all circa 1970--and everyone around the Brady family just stares at them in total disbelief. TO make things even better, there is a wonderful visit from Davy Jones as well as a wonderful plot involving Jan and hear jealousy of Marsha, Marsha, Marsha! As for the plot, this might be the biggest weakness. While it isn't bad, the film's theme of the evil neighbors and the Brady family losing their home never is as fun or interesting as the sequel--A VERY BRADY SEQUEL--and you MUST see this sequel. It is a hoot!
