Trivia

Susan Olsen (Cindy) was the only original cast member not to appear in the movie, because she decided to go on her honeymoon in Jamaica. She also found out that Paramount only had to deliver on five of the six "kids", and wanted to pay Olsen the least, which was all the more reason for her to turn down the film. See more »

Goofs

In the Christmas tree decorating scene, Greg talks to Peter about his stuffed clown and how he'll burn it this year if he finds it. In the next scene, when Bobby is talking to Alice and Carol, you can hear the same script being used as background noise and chatter once Alice starts to cry. See more »

You just need to listen....

All right folks, like Howard Beale said in Network, I am mad as hell and want to speak my mind. WHAT DO SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE AGAINST THE BRADY BUNCH!!!!! I have never in my life seen a tv show so unjustly maligned and ridiculed. All right, it didn't show life the way it was...but it showed life the way we wished it could be. Haven't all of us wished that we could be like the Bradys? Haven't all of us wished that we could live in a better world where families were warm and loving and kind to each other and stuck together and solved their problems thru the power of love? Haven't all of us wished in today's troubled times that there was a better world beyond this one? Where the worst problems were Marcia hogging the bathroom or Greg's hair turning green or Jan worrying her braces made her look silly. When this tv film came out in the Christmas of 1988, a tv guide reviewer said that it was a good reason to spend Christmas overseas! You SOB how dare you say that! I say thank God for The Brady Bunch. I watched that wonderful show as a child and I say with no shame whatsoever that I still enjoy it as an adult! Its like watching old friends! This is a wonderful film that is as fine as Its A Wonderful Life to me. I love seeing them all together again and I enjoyed when they used clips of the old show. It brought back so many wonderful memories as I am sure it did for so many.
