Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (4 ):

The fashions may be out of style, but the humor still rings true and there are fresh twists in this formidable follow-up to the original and the TV show. What's great about A Very Brady Sequel is that it has plenty of kitschy references to the iconic TV show: Greg (Christopher Daniel Barnes) moves into the attic, the Hawaiian bad-luck tiki and tarantula get cameos, and more. The film also spoofs the rumors of Brady kid actors dating one another in some Blue Lagoon moments between Marcia and Greg.

But what the film does well is put the Bradys in new situations: Jan applies her sibling rivalry to her dating life and her poor eyesight to a drivers permit -- both with hilarious results. Greg gets the attic -- but so does Marcia because, as she lectures Greg, "There's a new thing called women's lib, Greg. It means girls get what they want." And a Brady-style animated psychedelic trip is definitely far-out.
