Here's a story...the REAL story
21 May 2000 | by (The Brady home,Los Angeles,CA) – See all my reviews

"Growing Up Brady" is an excellent TV-movie written and produced by actor Barry Williams (who played Greg in the series). The movie depicts the backstage and off-screen dramedies of the cast, focusing on the on-again, off-again romance between Williams and Maureen McCormick (who played Marcia), as well as a subplot involving the ongoing animosity between actor Robert Reed (who played Mike Brady) and series producer Sherwood Schwartz over script quality. Reed is portrayed by Daniel Hugh-Kelly, and Schwartz is played by Michael Tucker of "L.A.Law" fame. Both men are excellent, as is Rebeccah Bush, who is right-on target as Florence Henderson, especially during her embarrassing "date" with a then-teenaged Williams (what was she thinking?!). The best aspect of the film is the HOT HOT HOT chemistry between the young actors who portray Williams and McCormick (Adam Brody and Kaley Cuoco). Skip the "Brady Bunch" theatrical movies from the late 90's, and watch this film if/when NBC airs it again. Too bad this could not have been a theatrical release, so that the sexual liaisons could have been steamier, Reed's homosexuality could have been explored (being closeted must have caused some of that angst!), as well as the short-lived porno career of Susan Olsen (who played Cindy). My score: 8 out of 10, which is not bad for a made-for-TV flick. "The Brady Bunch" rules! Memo to Williams: great job! Especially the casting of Mike Lookinland's son to portray Mike/Bobby!
