A VERY BRADY SEQUEL (1996 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.0|5.0 Starsììì

A Very Brady Sequel adds Zsa Zsa Gabor, John Hillerman, Rosie O’Donnell, Barbara Eden, and David Spade to its cast. However, despite terrific actors and actresses, this film comes off as if determined to dispose of the best of the Brady stories, enhance the worst of the series, put that on the big screen, and call it a movie. There’s no ‘cool’ in this sequel.

Storyline

Carol Brady’s (Shelley Long) first husband shows up after a long absence.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Arlene Sanford for directing effort. Thank you to Producers Alan Ladd Jr., Lloyd J. Schwartz, and Sherwood Schwartz for making the film possible.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. If one is determined to finish the series, then this is part of the package; but, it is not the best in the Brady stories.
