Second far-out spoof is just as neat-o and fun.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this rehash of favorite Brady moments features a lot of sexual innuendo and some violence. For instance, the "bad guy" Roy lies to the group, brings drugs into the house, smokes, and threatens the family. He kidnaps Carol and threatens to kill her. There's also an extended drug-induced hallucination meant to be comedic.

Audience Reviews

3 stars

This sequel to "The Brady Bunch Movie" continues the funny contrasting of the 70's family with modern life, but goes one further by introducing a scammer (Tim Matheson), who tries to take advantage of the family's good will by claiming he is the long-lost husband of Mrs. Brady (Shelley Long), in order to swipe the family's hidden treasure. There are many more tributes to classic Brady Bunch TV episodes, with unexpected twists thrown in. There's the great sub-plots of Greg and Marsh being attracted to each other, and of Jan and her imaginary boyfriend. It's a funny little movie, which has the family going to Hawaii and finding a Tikki-Idol, just like on TV. Very funny once again.
