The Brady Bunch Movie that was released a couple years prior to A Very Brady Sequel was a decent success. The movie was actually pretty funny, I was obsessed with it when I was a kid. As I grew up, there was a flaw that I found with the film, the point of that film was to show how the Brady's were so different from the world and the real life family, no matter what decade. The Brady Bunch Movie was missing one main thing, the reactions from others around them. So A Very Brady Sequel, that's not only what they did, but they did it extremely well and this movie is one of the funniest comedies that you will ever see. One evening, a man claiming to be Carol's long-lost first husband, Roy Martin, shows up at the suburban Brady residence. He is actually a con man named Trevor Thomas and is there to steal their familiar horse statue that is actually a $20 million ancient artifact. They, portrayed as naïve, believe his story about suffering from amnesia and having plastic surgery after being injured. Eventually, Trevor's ruse is uncovered by Bobby and Cindy; in retaliation, he kidnaps Carol and takes her and the artifact to a buyer in Hawaii. The remaining Brady family travels to Hawaii to save her and foil his plans. One of the scenes that nearly kills me with laughter each time is when Roy is taking Carol and tells the kids to stay back, Cindy says "You can't take my mommy!", Marcia says "Cindy's right, take Jan!". You rarely get comedic timing on a joke like that! Roy's reactions to hanging with the Brady family was too funny. I loved when Alice mistakes his "mushrooms" for actual mushrooms and as he's eating them in the spaghetti she made he realizes that he's "tripping with the Brady's". Leading into a very funny cartoon of an acid trip with the Brady's. I thought the touch with Marcia and Greg having a romance was funny since every Brady fan knows that in real life Maureen McCormick and Barry Williams had a little fling, weird seeing brother and sister have that kind of chemistry on camera. A Very Brady Sequel is guaranteed to make you laugh. It's just a fun comedy with a lot of fun pokes at the series. The cast was great and really clicked well. Adding Tim Matheson as Roy was a great idea, he's timing on the jokes was perfect. His character was exactly what these movies needed. I also thought it was a great idea taking on the famous Hawaii episode, how could you not laugh at the way Greg gets "wiped out" again while surfing? I wish they did make another sequel, but maybe it's better to leave the movies off with a bang, keep us laughing, keep us wanting more because the Brady's can finally rest knowing that they left that audience with a smile on their faces. 7/10
