The Brady Bunch Movie (1995)



Being a huge Brady nerd, I remember reading the groovy, out of sight news in Entertainment Weekly about The Brady Bunch Movie being in production.  Then I saw it was being released for another eight months!  It was an eternity in the pre-internet days.  Finally the sunshine day arrived and I booked to the theater with a bunch (pun intended) of thirty-year-olds.  I was glad to see they crammed as many references to the original show as they could.  Gary Cole should've gotten an Oscar for his dead-on portrayal of Mike Brady.  And lets hear it for Eric Nies still being able to book work three years after his Real World season on MTV.

The Brady Bunch Movie was filmed in Canoga Park, Woodland Hills, Studio City, Encino, North Hollywood and Tarzana, CA
