Five kids are left home when their mother leaves town on a three-month vacation to Australia, only to have their geriatric babysitter die of a heart attack, leading to the eldest teen, Sue Ellen, to scam her way into taking a job at a hip Los Angeles fashion company to feed and support her needy siblings.

At the auction scene, the auctioneer mentions Ms. McCormick and Ms. Plumb. This is in reference to the original Marcia and Jan, Maureen McCormick and Eve Plumb, respectively. See more »
During the scene at the construction site, the close-up shots of Mike and Peter where the camera points toward Mike were filmed from the same exact spot as those of Mr. Phillips (Steven Gilborn). Note especially the blue boom lift in front of the Redd Design sign. (This is usually done when a filming location is too small to give the scope the director wants so they film both sides from the same direction to make the background appear bigger.) See more »
This satiric sequel is a rare exception--it's better than the original. Highlights include Jan's made-up boyfriend, George Glass, Marcia and Greg's awkward sexual attraction, a cameo by Zsa Zsa Gabor and Rosie O'Donnel, not one but TWO musical dance numbers, Marcia's obvious wig in her scene at the pool, Jan losing her contact lens while driving, Mr. and Mrs. Brady's hilariously obvious sexual innuendo, Alice's spaghetti with "special mushrooms," the family trip to Hawaii, and the (brief) return of Tiger, the dog. There's a lot more funny stuff too!
While the original was all about the Brady's living in the 90s, the sequel is more concerned with the wacky misadventures the characters get themselves into. The comedy is intensified when other non-Brady's (people of the 90s) react to the Brady family. Fortunately, the Brady's are still oblivious to the fact that they aren't living in the 1970's anymore, so we can keep on laughing at the ridiculousness of the situations they are placed in.
Honestly, it is such a funny, underrated comedy...RENT IT!
