Did You Know?

Gary Cole, playing Mike Brady, went on to play Vice President Bob Russell in The West Wing. Interestingly, the man pretending to be Carol Brady's first husband in A Very Brady Sequel, Tim Matheson, also went on to play the Vice President John Hoynes in "The West Wing".

Revealing mistakes: When Cindy Brady delivers the Dittmeyer's mail, Larry Dittmeyer is running on his treadmill. The Bloody Mary, in the drink holder, has no celery stick in the glass but, in a following close-up, a celery stick appears in the drink from nowhere.

Marcia Brady: Oh those are pretty pictures, what have you modeled for?
Model: Guess.
Marcia Brady: Are you a Breck girl?
Model: No, Guess Jeans.
Marcia Brady: Levi's? Wrangler? Osh Kosh B'Gosh?

User Review

I never thought of it that way..

Rating: 9/10

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.
