The Brady Bunch Movie -- The original 70's TV family is now placed in the 1990's, where they're even more square and out of place than ever.
America's grooviest family steps out of the 70's and into the 90's...sort of. The Brady's risk losing their home to a scheming neighbor unless they come up with $20,000 in back taxes. Amusing cameos from some of the original stars.
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.
The Bradys' marriage is threatened when Carol's long-presumed-dead husband resurfaces. But is he the real thing -- or an impostor?
Mike (Gary Cole) is a planning a surprise wedding anniversary party for Carol (Shelly Long) - until Carol's long-lost first husband, Roy (Tim Matheson), shows up to shake the family tree. When Roy whisks Carol off to Hawaii, the Bradys take off in pursuit - for fun, sun and the adventure of their lives.
Break out the double knits and roll out the Astroturf, because The Bunch is back in a groovy, good-time "romp for all ages" (Bonnie Churchill, National News Syndicate). Mike (Gary Cole) and Carol (Shelley Long) have just one week to come up with $20,000 in back taxes or they'll lose their house to a scheming neighbour (Michael McKean).To make matters worse, Marcia gets a swollen nose on date night, Cindy's addicted to tattling, and Jan's hearing a psychotic inner voice crying "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!" Of course, these are the Bradys, and when the kids enter a talent contest with a $20,000 purse… well, let's just say,"It's A Sunshine Day"! With appearances by Florence Henderson, Barry Williams, Ann B. Davis, Christopher Knight and dreamy ex-Monkee Davy Jones, The Brady Bunch is "an absolute laugh riot from beginning to end" (Barry ZeVan, Channel America).
Living in 1995 but still nestled in 1970s kitsch, the Brady clan must come up with $20,000 fast to save their suburban home from developers.
