Our Score
One of the rare occasions when a sequel works better than the original, this follow-up to the big-screen adaptation of TV's The Brady Bunch not only pokes more fun at the Bradys, but mocks them more savagely. Yet the movie still has great affection for the characters, who are wonderfully played by the cast, especially Shelley Long and Gary Cole as parents Carol and Mike Brady. Still stuck in a 1970s time warp in the 1990s, the Bradys are stunned by the appearance of a man claiming to be Carol's former husband, who was previously believed to have been dead. This leads to drugs, kidnapping, and stepsiblings Marcia and Greg becoming romantically attracted to each other, though it all happens with that innocent Brady charm.


The eternally cheerful Brady family's easy-going lives are thrown into upheaval by a man claiming to be wife Carol's supposedly dead first husband. The naive clan welcomes him into their home, blissfully unaware he is really a thief planning to steal a priceless artefact - if the sheer niceness of his hosts does not drive him mad first. Comedy, with Shelley Long, Gary Cole and Tim Matheson.
