Mike Brady and his wife Carol Brady 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 the Brady kids to secretly raise money and save the homestead before they lose their house to their scheming neighbor Mr. Larry Dittmeyer.Written by

Mike's line, "As a wise man once said, 'Wherever you go, there you are'" is a reference to the 1984 sci-fi movie The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. The same line is spoken by Peter Weller in the movie. See more »
The Brady's try to raise $20,000 to save their house. When Mike and Carol are talking in bed, Mike says to Carol, "Penny for your thoughts." "Twenty thousand of them," which Carol was referring to the money they needed, however, 20,000 pennies is $200, not $20,000. Two million pennies would be $20,000. See more »
During the closing credits, which mimic the television series, Florence Henderson (playing the Grandmother) is seen with a bottle of Wesson Cooking Oil. In the 1980s, Henderson did commercials for Wesson. See more »
For anyone old enough to have seen the original series, this movie truly blows the lid off of the whole TV show and pokes fun at the whole whole family and concept at every turn. They easily could have done a formula tv-ish movie and instead they make a complete parody that is screamingly funny. Not to mention that the fact that the cast are dead-ringers for the originals--in fact Jan is so _frighteningly_ like the original that it'll send shivers up your back. Four of the original cast also make cameos in the film (but you'll have to really look to find some of them), and the film blends the whole campy concept with the "retro" plastic nineties--a perfect joke on fashions of this decade. Very worth watching!
