THE BRADY BUNCH

Watch:

What You Need To Know:

A campy spoof of the popular TV sitcom, THE BRADY BUNCH movie, starring Shelley Long in a cardboard performance, is surprisingly funny, dropping the show's 70's characterizations and dialogue into a 90's world of racy living and cynicism, but is ultimately nothing more than an extra-long sitcom itself. Regrettably, the movie equates the Brady family's basic moral decency with stupidity. Featuring a secularized morality and frequent sexual innuendo, this movie is not for kids, just light, dumb fun for nostalgia-minded older teenagers and adults who remember the TV show.

Content:

More Detail:

A campy spoof of the popular TV sitcom, THE BRADY BUNCH movie, starring Shelley Long in a cardboard performance, is surprisingly funny, dropping the show’s 70’s characterizations and dialogue into a 90’s world of racy living and cynicism, but is ultimately nothing more than an extra-long sitcom itself. The plot centers around the Brady children saving the day when they learn that their parents owe $20,000 in back taxes. Complicating matters, a smarmy neighbor and real estate agent (played solidly by Michael McKean) is working to sell the block to developers and wants the Bradys out at any cost.

Regrettably, the movie equates the Brady family’s basic moral decency with stupidity. Mike and Carol Brady, oblivious to innuendo, think of warm coats when Marcia’s date says he has “protection.” When Marcia is tossed out of a boy’s car for turning down his sexual proposition, he drives away, shouting, “Bradys suck!” Also oblivious, Marcia fails to realize that her best friend is a lesbian and has a crush on her. Overall, the “Brady way” wins the day. However, their moral “perfection” is strictly human and not based in any religious conviction. Along with the amount of sexual innuendo presented, this movie is not for children, just light, dumb fun for nostalgia-minded older teenagers and adults who remember the TV show.
