Product Description

The Brady Bunch Home Movies (which aired on CBS only once on May 24, 1995) is filled with great home movie clips from the cast members' own libraries as well as recent interviews with the majority of the cast. During the first year on the show, Robert Reed (Mike Brady) gave each cast member a Super 8 camera. He also took the children to England and New York during the show's hiatus. Some of the footage on The Brady Bunch Home Movies came from those private trips.

The DVD version includes an exclusive interview with Susan Olsen and Mike Lookinland.

If Nick at Nite reruns and the odd reunion special haven't yet numbed you to Brady nostalgia, if the specter of Greg in tight polyester, Jan making her jealous face, or Alice in curlers won't wear out their welcome on your tube no matter what, then by all means, tune into Brady Home Movies. Here's a 50-minute bonanza of bubblegum good times, with the whole surviving gang gathering round for a wide-eyed look back. Jan is painted as a flirt, Greg as the consummate cool guy, and Peter and Bobby seem plunked into parts ripped from their real lives. Vintage movies by the cast members cap off a show as squeaky-clean as the series that enabled it (promises to the contrary, nothing bold emerges). But that's the Brady clan for you: to their credit, they're as curiously captivating (if not nearly as cute) here as they were 30 years ago. --Tammy La Gorce

Like other teens their age, the 'Brady Bunch''s young actors coupled up and made out with each other There is some really interesting commentary on these films.
Robin Orlowski
It is, in reality, a contribution to the documentation of the world of pop culture way-back-when, definitely worth your attention.

...all "Brady" kids got 8 mm silent movie cameras as gifts. The movies they made with these cameras is what basically makes up this television special. Better and more interesting than most of the Brady specials/documentaries. This special was put together by Susan Olsen (Cindy), which gives it some genuine Brady cred. Cast members are present as well to lend commentary where appropriate. Some footage is from the cruise Robert Reed took the kids on (the trip where Greg tried to put the moves on Marcia, er, rather, Barry tried to put the moves on Maureen). Surprising it didn't air more than once, considering it rated well on it's first and only CBS airing. This special was filmed after Robert Reed's passing.

Before reality TV swept the nation, Robert Reed (who played dad Mike Brady) had the genius idea to take ALL of the kids on vacation with him and give them portable cameras to record the event.

Even if it ruinned the serenity of his usually quiet vacations, this same decision would ultimately provide the BEST footage of the 'Bradys' as most people never saw them previously. Thus, unlike a lot of retrospective titles, this entry consistently keeps audience interest.

As chronicled in Growing up Brady: I was a teenage Greg, these movies ultimately provided lot more realistic depiction of the six kids than anything Sherwood Schwartz wanted to produce. Like other teens their age, the 'Brady Bunch''s young actors coupled up and made out with each other There is some really interesting commentary on these films.

Reed might have gained intra-set infamy for his opposition to bubblegum plotlines, but this is easily overshadowed by his genuine concern for all of the kids. Before he died of complications from AIDS, many of the kids honestly considered Reed their second father. The tribute included in this DVD stresses that the sentiment the kids and Reed felt towards each other genuinely was familial.

"Brady Bunch home movies" is an amazing look behind-the-scenes at one of the worlds best known, and loved TV shows. Robert Reed (Mike Brady) gave each of the "Brady Kids" a super 8mm video camera their first Christmas together. The kids spent the next 5 years (during breaks from filming The Brady Bunch) making their own home movies. This rare look at the entire cast and crew, along with early auditions, commercials and a "where are they now" segment, make "Brady Bunch Home Movies" a must in ANY Brady collection!

I loved this DVD. It was funny and touching at times (especially the cast member's tribute to Robert Reed). I had never heard of a "Super 8 camera" before, so I enjoyed seeing what it could do and the quality of it was really good. The whole content of this DVD was absolutely wonderful and the stories to go along with it were equally funny and touching.

This is a TV special that aired in 1995. This is a very entertaining documentery on the real lives of the Brady Bunch-when the cameras were not rolling. They were normal kids who liked to have fun. They were very good at goofing off-they were just being themselves.

Robert Reed-who played the father-Mike Brady on the show gave each one of the kids super 8 cameras. They all made home movies with these cameras and now for the first time ever, several of these movies were compiled into this tv special. I find these home movies very fascinating. It shows what these kids were really like when they were not filming.

I think the main thing about this special is that it shows how these kids established a chemistry on the show and why it worked so well. They liked being with each other even off the set. And so when one watches the Brady Bunch, it's easy to see that they had a great chemistry and that's what made them so believable.

My favorite home movies here are those of Mike Lookinland(Bobby)this was one goofy kid when the cameras were not rolling. His home movie of the dogs and cats is very funny. It also shows why he is my favorite Brady kid-he was a real charmer!

So, you want to know what these kiks were really like in real life? Then get this DVD!

I must say I was dissapointed with this movie.What's the deal with the loud pop/rock music that plays totally from start to finish!!???. It's like someone forgot that we were actually meant to hear what was being said!!!.

The film footage was excellent & even better than I expected but don't even attempt to try and drag the 70's into the 90's at all, and especially with that shocking music throughout, it just didn't work at all!!.

Production companies should try and remember that the people who buy these features actually want to go back to "THAT" time totally, and that any attempt to "modernise" a window in time is a HUGE mistake.

Sorry to sound so critical, but I was really looking forward to a "total voyage" back to those 70's "Brady Days".

My suggestion, turn off the volume!.

As a fan of The Brady Bunch sitcom and their made for television reunion movies I watched This Brady Bunch Home Movies Special and I really enjoyed it and thought it was very interesting. I wasn't disappointed at all and I recommend this to Brady Bunch fans. I too found this to be an interesting and amusing documentary.
