Mike Brady and his wife, Carol, have just only one week to come up with $20,000 in back taxes or their house is sold and they'll have no choice but to move. And it's up to their kids to secretly raise money and save the house before they lose it to their scheming neighbor, Larry Dittmeyer.Written by

RuPaul played Jan's guidance counselor, Mrs. Cummings. The character's name is perhaps a reference to original Marcia Brady Maureen McCormick's (married) last name, which is in fact Cummings. It could also be a humorous double entendre, something RuPaul is well known for. See more »

Get out! This is a car jack!

Well, of course this is a car. But my name's not Jack. It's Greg.

U.S. television prints of this film feature several scenes that were not released theatrically or on video, all of which revolve around the Brady neighbors, the Dittmeyers. These scenes include a garage band scene, a scene with termites in the bathroom, and another scene with Mrs. Dittmeyer trying to seduce Peter. See more »
The Brady Bunch Movie (1995) is, in my opinion, one of the best spoofs in movie history. Every character is deliciously well done in true '70s style, the decor is excellent, and the whole plot is hilarious: the Bradys in the '90s. An excellent movie on the whole, complete with cameos by the original Brady Bunch cast and '70s icons.
The beauty of this movie, has I've mentioned before, is that it is done so authentically. There are little touches here and there (you may need to watch the movie a few times to notice), such as 'The Partridge Family' bus going by just before the singing competition scene.
There are some hilarious moments (some quite cringe worthy too!). Mike Brady giving a 'wise' speech, Marcia getting hit in the nose by a football, Marcia's dance and so many more. I even find when Jan knocks some boxes off funny! Pacing wise, it moves very fast so you don't get bored. It runs smoothly. No qualms there.
It is really amusing to see a naive, sweet '70s family fit in with '90s California grunge. It's a great movie - many great memories of this.
