The Brady Bunch Movie
The Brady Bunch Movie pays tribute to the 1970s TV show while poking gentle fun at it. The Brady family, led by father Mike (Gary Cole), still live in their suburban, split-level home and are still throwbacks to the era that spawned them. Eternally perky wife Carol (Shelley Long) is the perfect homemaker, while the kids' behavior is as wholesome as their loud, time-warp pastel clothes.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A curiously sour movie in its amused contempt for this fatuous family."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"The Brady Bunch Movie is never more than lightly amusing, but then neither was the TV show."
‑ Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"Campy, affectionate send-up of a classic TV show."
‑ Heather Boerner, Common Sense Media
"A funny, savvy, camp yet family-friendly look at the Generation-X TV icons."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Comes off smart by being so silly."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"[Director Thomas] drawn hilariously synthetic performances from a shrewdly cloned cast."
‑ , Time Out
"Part homage, part spoof, the deft balancing act is a clever, engaging adaption."
‑ Leonard Klady, Variety
"This is enormous fun, one of the best TV adaptations to date, and guaranteed to provoke a nostalgic misty eye and mischevious grin in anybody who's ever owned a crimplene tank top."
‑ Caroline Westbrook, Empire Magazine
"Funnier than it deserves to be."
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,
"John Waterish amalgamation that both pricks and honors the ideal American family"
‑ Brandon Judell, PopcornQ
"The actors try hard, but the screenplay isn't solid enough to keep any of them consistently clever."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Wonder of wonders, Thomas and her colleagues have turned this mother lode of 1970s kitsch into a pretty tasty little comedy."
‑ David Lyman,
"While the young actors are all fine at spoofery, we get the impression that only Long, McKean and Cole really understand the joke."
‑ , Film4
"Apparently someone else besides yours truly was watching the eighties sitcom "Day by Day"."
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"There are a surprizing number of good laughs, but in the end it's an NBC movie of the week filmed in 35mm."
‑ Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDWire
