I'm a HUUUUUUUGE Brady Bunch fan. I'll definitely be one of the people who buys Season 1 of the original series on release day, if Sherwood Schwartz and Paramount ever release it. Also, I thought the Brady films were HILARIOUS!!! Shelly Long and Gary Cole made great Mike and Carol Bradys, and the actors and actresses who played the Brady Kids were funny and memorable.
Sadly, this third entry into the Brady Movie 'trilogy' is horrible, at best. Gary Cole and Shelly Long have to work with weak dialogue, a lame storyline, and a supporting cast that you wished could have stayed locked away in the Presidential Bunker for a long time. I think the only non-veteran actor or actress in the film that went on to something successful was one of the girls at Marcia's slumber party, who's currently in that irritating McDonald's commercial with that guy who can't find his Happy Meal toy.
I'm surprised that this film was even allowed to be broadcast on TV, it was so wretched. It definitely ranks (pun intended) with other misfires, like the Variety Hour and The Bradys spinoff. What's really sad is that I think this also puts the final nail in the coffin of the 'anything Brady' nostalgia phase, which also included the Growing Up Brady movie. After this film, I wonder if any more Brady-related projects will be made.
Already Sherwood and Paramount - it's time to clean the palate with the release of Season 1 of the Brady Bunch TV series!!!!
My husband and I loved the first two Brady Bunch movies so we couldn't wait to order "The Brady Bunch in The White House". We assumed it had also been a theatrical release. If we had known it was a made-for-TV movie, we never would have ordered it.
If we had watched it on TV, we would have commented on how terrible it was after the first fifteen minutes and turned the channel to watch a rerun of The Simpsons. However, we paid $20 for it so we watched every agonizingly horrible moment of it.
Obviously, this TV movie did not have the budget of the earlier theatrical releases ("The Brady Bunch Movie" and "A Very Brady Sequel") so they could not afford to hire decent writers, a decent director or a decent cast. The actors playing the kids were not recognizable as the Brady kids with the possible exception of the young woman playing Marcia although she was not nearly as skilled as Christine Taylor from the first two movies. The "girl" who played Jan looked to be well in her twenties, Cindy was too small and almost incomprehensible with her lisp. The other kids were at least as bad.
The actress playing Alice brought no "Alice-ness" to the role. Instead she was like a stranger in the family and a damned unfunny one at that.
I had hoped that Saul Rubineck would add some much needed humour to this insipid script but although he was more professional than most of the other actors that littered the screen, he was not given a single funny line. But then nobody else was either.Read more ›

This film suffers from a new cast of kids ( That Was Different from the other Brady Movies) and a very bland screenplay. The film is hard to sit through. Read morePublished on March 26, 2013 by Stan Heck
