Trivia

Bobby tells Roy that they took the horse statue to get cleaned at Sherwood's Antiques. This is an obvious homage to Sherwood Schwartz, the creator and producer of the original TV series The Brady Bunch. See more »

Goofs

It is revealed that Carol's first husband, Roy Martin was lost at sea and presumed dead. This is how Carol came to be a widow and married Mike. At the climax of the movie, we learn that Trevor was responsible for the boat carrying Roy and Dr. Whitehead's son, Gilligan's demise. We are then told that Carol's first husband was The Professor on Gilligan's Island. The problem is, on Gilligan's Island, The Professor's name is Roy Hinkley and not Roy Martin. See more »

Must see for Brady fans
3 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

Another of the rare breed of sequels-better-than-the-original movies, A Very Brady Sequel continues with the idea of the 70's Brady's being stuck in the present (in this case, the mid-90's) from the first film. While the original movie was very funny (grunge music nonwithstanding), the total lack of a plot was a pretty obvious hole.

This time around we're actually treated to a decent storyline (as relative as can be to the entire Brady aura, that is) involving Mrs. Brady's first, long-lost husband, Roy. This adds a whole additional avenue for laughs as we now have an straight outsider thrust directly into the everyday realm of the Bradys. As he tries to enact his nefarious scheme, he's dragged kicking and screaming through their loopy antics, breakout songs and Mr. Brady's lectures.

The same Brady cast returns and they're as spot-on as ever. A bulk of the laughs continue to go to insecure Jan, as she tries to convince everyone she's a viable person. A new "incest" angle is introduced between Greg and Marcia ("Does this mean we're not really brother and sister?") that plays very well throughout. Tim Matheson is an excellent addition as Roy Brady, and he gets some scene stealing parts as well, particularly when he ends up "tripping with the Bradys".

While Sam seems to have disappeared in this one, we do see a couple of other Brady icons who seemed to have been missed in the first movie, though blink and you'll miss them. Surprisingly no real-life cameos in this one.

As with the first movie, the more familiar you are with the TV series the more you will enjoy this movie. If you've never watched the Bradys then you'll probably want to skip these movies as most of the laughs are derived from inside references to the episodes, but if you have, then this is highly recommended and one of my faves.
