User Reviews

Brady cheesiness at its finest. So bad it's good.
15 December 2018 | by melgl-99183See all my reviews

I absolutely love the Brady Bunch and so does my daughter now ( she's 14). We love this movie.

It was great seeing the whole Brady clan together- except for the orig Cindy. I've always loved Florence Henderson she still looks beautiful in this movie.

Of course there are some corny scenes and just annoying characters. Marcia's husband Wally is a nerd who doesn't want anyone to know he lost his job. Their son is a bratty red head who's mean to Greg's kid. You seriously want to punch the brat in the face.

When bringing in the tree, the Bradys break out into a cheesy Christmas song which no normal family actually sings.

When Peter and Bobby talk in the middle of the night, Peter is wearing a nightgown. What guy actually wears that?

Look for a big goof decorating the Christmas tree. Some bad audio. Hard to believe that wasn't caught during editing.

Cheesy Christmas fun I watch every holiday.
