5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars for This???? Yeah!, April 18, 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: A Very Brady Sequel [VHS] (VHS Tape)
The critics are right, in that this film is superiour to the first Brady Bunch movie. You have to understand going into this the premise that in these films, our world is current, but the Brady household is still stuck in the 1970s, wearing the clothing, speaking the slang, singing the music, and thinking the same types of thoughts as the characters in the TV series. This movie, however, moves a step beyond the first one, which, while well-done, was essentially a one-joke film, namely the premise described above. Here, we start to explore things. Greg and Marcia aren't REALLY brother and sister, and didn't Barry Williams and Maureen McCormick act like there was something going on between them? Hmmm. The film explores that. This film is also superior to the first in that the world of the now surrounding the Bradys this time is even more repulsive than in the first, in terms of the scam artist played by Tim Matheson, posing as Carol's first husband. RuPaul as the high school guidance counselor? (A carryover from the first film.) There is a lot to spell out the differences between the Bradys and the world of the 1990s. As with the first film, don't look at this for some great statement (though in essence, it DOES have a very profound subtext), sit back and enjoy the show. Enjoy the musical numbers, too. This film gives the Brady kids more of an opportunity to belt out those same songs of Greg's. And if you're too well-versed in television, you'll even recognize elements from "The Brady Kids" cartoon series in one key comedy segment.

Actually, adopted kids REALLY ARE brothers and sisters, and their moms and dads are their "real" parents.
