Movie Info

Like its lively predecessor, The Brady Bunch Movie (1995), this mild comic send-up takes its characters and situations from the popular family sitcom of the 1970s, The Brady Bunch. Set in the '90s, it is filled with in-joke references to American pop culture. However, one need not be familiar with the original series in order to enjoy this film. Bad guy Trevor Thomas (Tim Matheson) is posing as supermom Carol Brady's long-dead first husband Roy Martin. He claims to have been amnesiac and made unrecognizable by plastic surgery after suffering disfiguring injuries, but in truth, he is on the hunt for a very valuable artifact, an ancient Chinese horse carving which Roy sent to his family from the field. Because of the family's sheer niceness, they could never imagine such deception, and husband Mike Brady (Gary Cole) welcomes him into their midst. This causes Roy no end of frustration, as not only must he live with this incredibly sweet and cheerful family while he searches for the carving, but he must endure having his ill-tempered sarcastic jibes go completely unrecognized. When Carol (Shelley Long) is kidnapped, the whole family goes a-hunting.more

Critic Reviews for A Very Brady Sequel

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (10)

A considerably better second installment than one usually encounters.

Top Critic

As a satire of a sitcom that wasn't funny, it's often at its funniest when it's purposely stale.

I didn't laugh much during A Very Brady Sequel, but I did smile a lot.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

No incarnation of the Brady Bunch, no matter how cleverly satirized, can use up an hour and a half's screen time without making the audience feel like they've overdosed.

A Very Brady Sequel isn't great, but it's enjoyable.

Still delivers diverting comic fluff for the bland clan's fans.

Audience Reviews for A Very Brady Sequel

A Very Stinky Sequel to A Very Crappy Original.

Super Reviewer

Lol, how can you not love these cheesy movies, as horrible as they are, Gary Cole brings it.

This sequel to "The Brady Bunch Movie" continues the funny contrasting of the 70's family with modern life, but goes one further by introducing a scammer (Tim Matheson), who tries to take advantage of the family's good will by claiming he is the long-lost husband of Mrs. Brady (Shelley Long), in order to swipe the family's hidden treasure. There are many more tributes to classic Brady Bunch TV episodes, with unexpected twists thrown in. There's the great sub-plots of Greg and Marsh being attracted to each other, and of Jan and her imaginary boyfriend. It's a funny little movie, which has the family going to Hawaii and finding a Tikki-Idol, just like on TV. Very funny once again.
