This review is from: The Brady Bunch Movie [VHS] (VHS Tape)
I originally saw this movie on the big screen... as an adult who grew up watching The Brady Bunch when it was still a prime time show, I thought I would die laughing when I saw this. I could tell a number of the younger viewers in the theater did not understand a lot of the gags in the movie. The costuming is dead on (most of us of that age either dressed that way or had brothers and sisters who did). Christine Taylor, who plays the Marcia character is good, but the actress who plays Jan is hysterical (she's perfect! ). Shelly Long gets Florence Henderson's mannerisms and voice tone down so well - it's almost scary ("Oh Mike...") and Gary Cole deserves an award for being able to deliver those inane "Mike Brady" speeches with a straight face. This movie and it's sequel are great - complete with the Brady Kids song and dance numbers ("I think I'll go for a walk outside, now - the sunshine's calling my name...") but make more sense if you are very familiar with the series it parodies.
