The Brady Bunch Movie

Overview

The Brady Bunch Movie pays tribute to the 1970s TV show while poking gentle fun at it. The Brady family, led by father Mike Gary Cole, still live in their suburban, split-level home and are still throwbacks to the era that spawned them. Eternally perky wife Carol Shelley Long is the perfect homemaker, while the kids' behavior is as wholesome as their loud, time-warp pastel clothes.

Overview

The Brady Bunch Movie pays tribute to the 1970s TV show while poking gentle fun at it. The Brady family, led by father Mike Gary Cole, still live in their suburban, split-level home and are still throwbacks to the era that spawned them. Eternally perky wife Carol Shelley Long is the perfect homemaker, while the kids' behavior is as wholesome as their loud, time-warp pastel clothes. Meanwhile, the greedy, selfish modern era swirls dangerously around them, embodied in next-door neighbor and real estate agent Ditmeyer Michael McKean, who wants to buy the Bradys' property and turn the neighborhood into a giant mall. But no amount of money or prodding can persuade the Bradys to give up their home. Director Betty Thomas contrasts the overlit sitcom look of the Brady house interiors faithfully recreated from the series with real locations and natural grit for the modern L.A. scenes. The result is a satire that deftly spoofs the idea of staying true to old-fashioned values without ever passing judgment on those values.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
What might have been yet another disastrous big-screen sitcom revival (like the awful Beverly Hillbillies movie) works wonderfully in this clever comedy. The reason it works is the ingenious notion of taking the sickeningly wholesome Brady clan and plopping them -- unchanged -- into the 1990s. It's mostly a one-joke movie, the one joke being the family's utter cluelessness when presented with such developments as carjacking and lesbian seduction, but fans of the TV series will also be delighted at canny re-creations of some favorite scenes and cameos by some of the original cast members. Lighthearted and entertaining, though a bit racy for the kiddies, this twisted nostalgia piece is a lot of fun. Particularly noteworthy is the production design, which faithfully re-creates the look and loud but strangely washed-out colors of the show.

    A nice and comic movie for the whole family

    This is a very nice movie. You can sit and watch how different things are today and back in 70's. You don't have to be a fanatic of the Brady bunch, you can enjoy it much as a fanatic. Maybe after you watch it, you'll become one. The movie has a lot of learning special for the youngest ones. Also, it has the ex monkeys, Davis Jones, with the song he sang about 30 years earlier in the Brady's series and some of the original actors appear as a different roles helping some members of the family. It is a nice option for the whole family.
