4.0 out of 5 stars 2 are great, 1 is mediocre, the other is... not like the others., April 3, 2011

This review is from: A Brady Bunch of Movies (The Brady Bunch Movie / A Very Brady Sequel / Brady Bunch In The White House / Growing Up Brady) (DVD)
For the price, this is one amazing set. Even if the first two films were the only ones included, I would say it would definitely be worth getting. However, we get four films, which is great for fans of the original series, and the movie series spoofing it!

The first two films in the set, The Brady Bunch Movie and A Very Brady Sequel are astounding. They're truly the pinnacle of satire. Everything from direct references, to cameos, to racy innuendos are all here, and it's perfect for fans and non-fans alike. The humor is brilliant, and I can't tell you how many times I've watched these on VHS. I am happy to now own them on DVD.

The next film is a bit of a let down. It's a direct to TV sequel to the previous films, and while Shelley Long and Gary Cole return as the founding Bradys, the kids are recast. This is a huge let down for those who have seen the original two, specifically for the lack of Jennifer Elise Cox as Jan Brady, who was one of the biggest successes of the original theatricals. Overall, this one just isn't as clever or funny as the first two.

Why Growing Up Brady is in this set, I can't begin to tell you. It feels noticeably out of place amongst the satires in the set. The biopic itself is someone enjoyable, but nothing to get excited about.

All in all, other than a strange product description, this a great set to own, even just for 2 of the 4 films!

I couldn't agree with you more. Especially about Jennifer Elise Cox. She does one of the funniest performances I've ever seen on film.
