I think any person over the age of 35 has memories of racing home from school to watch the reruns of popular series like "Gilligan's Island", and "The Brady Bunch". Like them or hate them these series bring back many fond memories for this viewer and they were both the brain child of veteran producer Sherwood Schwartz. It was then a very special occasion when the cast of "The Brady Bunch", reunited in 1988 for this Christmas TV Movie that brought all of us viewers, who had literally grown up with the Brady's and their loyal maid Alice, up to date with the families happenings. Certainly fans around the world had been waiting for the return of their favourite family for some time and the TV Movie "A Very Brady Christmas", was a huge success earning CBS its highest rating for the year.
Most people are by now very familiar with the Brady's so there is no need to outline here who they are but the movie brought back the characters 14 years after the original series had ended so naturally there had been alot of changes with some of the original characters. The story of "A Very Brady Christmas", begins with Mike and Carol (Robert Reed and Florence Henderson), each planning to surprise the other with a trip overseas at Christmas now that all the children are away from home. When both discover the others identical plans they decide instead that the best gift of all for the coming holidays would be to instead use the money to bring all their children and their families home for an old fashioned Christmas. In the middle of their plans they suddenly find Alice (the much loved Anne B. Davis) on their doorstep announcing that Sam has left her for a younger woman.

3.0 out of 5 stars I Wish it Was on DVD! Dec 10 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I'm a big fan of The Brady Bunch, I was 4 years old when the sitcom had it's first network run and I grew up watching the reruns on a local station that played reruns of classic TV shows and when TV movie reunions were made I watched them and liked them even though they were a little on the corny side and I liked A Very Brady Christmas. The plot is predictable and can be corny at times but it's enjoyable and it was great to see the original cast, well most of the original cast because Cindy Brady is played by Jennifer Runyon from (Charles in Charge) who replaced Susan Olsen who was unavailable to be in this movie when they were filming it but she was back playing Cindy in the next TV movie and the short lived TV show that followed. This movie despite not having the original Cindy was actually good and I recommend it and hope they put it on DVD. In this movie the Brady's finally redecorate and modernize their house and Mike and Carol are planning on going on a vacation for Christmas only to decide to have a family Christmas instead but the kids come home for Christmas with their problems. Marsha's husband Wally loses his job. Jan and her husband Phillip are having marital problems and thinking of divorcing. Cindy wants to go on a sky trip with her college roomates and is unhappy because she thinks her family still treats her like a child. Greg upsets his wife for deciding to spend Christmas again with his family instead of hers. Peter is having a relationship with his female boss and she just doesn't fit in well with the Brady family. Bobby drops out of college to become a professional race car driver. Alice comes back to live with the Brady's after Sam leaves her for a younger woman, etc. I rate this movie 3 stars but I really think it should be 3 1/2 stars and I wish the movie would be put on DVD! The reason I don't give this movie a higher rating is that even though the actress who played Cindy gave a decent performance it would have been better with Susan Olsen playing her.

Kind of cheesy. Kind of hokey. Kind of corny. These are words that can be used to describe THE BRADY BUNCH. Yes, the show is the epitomy of cheesy. But I love it.
Although THE BRADY BUNCH was in production long before I was born, I still love returning to that fabled house time after time on TV Land; where life seems perfect and everything turns out alright.
And then, many years ago, I discovered A VERY BRADY CHRISTMAS. Since then, I have made the annual holiday showing on UPN TV a requirement.
But why do I love it? Why is THE BRADY BUNCH one of TV Land's highest rated shows? What makes A VERY BRADY CHRISTMAS so wonderful? The same reason that series such as THE COSBY SHOW, THE KING OF QUEENS and FAMILY TIES are so popular: they mirror our lives. They are like the family next door. They remind us of the good aspects of life; and the hurdles that each of us face everyday.
Everyone loves a great, wholesome family Christmas; and that's just what A VERY BRADY CHRISTMAS delivers. Without resorting to low-brow gimmicks -- stuff that's so common in sitcoms today -- or outrageous stunts that practically yell "RATINGS," AVBC provides us with the kind of humor that one would expect during the preperation and presentation of a family get-together/reunion. Alice struggling with the luggage; trouble deciding on where everybody should sleep; mis-placed pumpkin pies (well, not really lost; but I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't yet seen the movie!); and etc.
THE BRADY BUNCH reminds us that family is forever. That when all else fails, you can always count on family. That at the end of each day, there will always be a nice, warm, loving and caring house waiting for you with open arms. And with it's door always open.
And hey: if by any chance you have a maid like Alice, I want to move in with you! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars For fans of the TV show
This has the feel of the TV show because the same writers from the original show did this.
It was a little too WHITE though [Mr Brady's hair; the interior of the house].
