A Very Brady Sequel (1996)

The Bradys are back with a humdinger of a problem - Carol's presumed dead husband, Roy, has resurfaced.  This puts a damper on Mike's plans to renew their wedding vows for their anniversary.  Meanwhile, the kids have problems of their own - Marcia and Greg can't deny their growing attraction to each other, Peter frets about interning at Mike's firm and Jan tries to pull the polyester ;-) over everyone's eyes with a fake boyfriend.  When Roy kidnaps Carol, the family bans together to rescue her in Hawaii.  The renewal of vows takes place with an unexpected guest - Mike's presumed dead wife!

I saw this movie the day before I headed off to college so I was a bit preoccupied.  I remembered it not being as good as The Brady Bunch Movie (1995), but it's become a bit groovier with repeat viewings.  With five seasons to draw on, there were plenty of references and jokes that couldn't be squeezed into the first movie and found a place in A Very Brady Sequel. A second sequel was made for TV with Shelley Long and Gary Cole, but oddly enough, a new bunch of kids.  For many Brady fans, its best swept under the astroturf, like Alice's friend Kay.

The tour at the ranch is spectacular, but I was a little disappointed that they didn't mention anything about this movie filming there.  I just happened to recognize a few spots.  I would've liked to have known where exactly Carol escaped from Roy...
