A warm family reunion
3 July 2000 | by Monika-5See all my reviews

OK, I will agree some of the dialogue and situations in this movie are VERY corny. But it's also warm and winning as the Bradys reunite for the holidays. Some of the situations here were continued in the series The Bradys, which followed a year later. Sadly, Susan Olsen wasn't in the film (was on her honeymoon at the time), but the rest of the family is back! A nice little film to enjoy come holiday season. A bit of trivia: Tonya Lee Williams, who plays Cindy's roommate here, went on to play Olivia on the Young and the Restless, a role she's played for the last decade.
