-->They're back to save America from [[TheNineties The '90s]].

''TheBradyBunch'' never reached the top 30 during its original network run, but earned a large following in syndication. In 1995, this fame led to the release of ''The Brady Bunch Movie'', the first of three AffectionateParody-films of the original sitcom. The Bradys have become a bunch of {{Disco Dan}}s, engaging in 1970s fads and activities despite moving to the 1990s. This movie follows their efforts to raise $20,000 in order to save their home (and, by extension, their neighborhood) from a CorruptCorporateExecutive who wants to convert the area into a shopping mall.

''A Very Brady Sequel'' followed ''The Brady Bunch Movie'' in 1996. A man identifying himself as Carol's first husband, Roy Martin, returns from a several-decade absence, and causes friction among the Brady household. Unbeknownst to the Brady Bunch, their visitor is actually a smuggler named Trevor Thomas (Tim Matheson of ''AnimalHouse'' and ''BurnNotice''), seeking to steal their horse statue for Dr. Whiteman, a rich man living in {{Hawaii}}. Trevor uses the ''Bradys''' cluelessness to carry out his plan, as well as openly insult them throughout the film.

Paramount Television and Fox hoped to continue the success of the two theatrical movies with a 2002 MadeForTVMovie titled ''The Brady Bunch in the White House''. In it, Mike Brady becomes President of the United States.

!! Tropes featured in the movies:
[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:All Movies]]
* [[BornInTheWrongCentury Born In The Wrong Decades]]: The eponymous family in the movies.
* TheBrainlessBeauty: Marcia, especially ''A Very Brady Sequel'':
-->'''Marcia:''' "He even wrote something in my yearbook in French! ''[='=][[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Menage A Trois]].[='=]'' I bet that means 'You're the most.'"
* CelebrityParadox: In the first movie a girl says Peter is a babe in a [[GilligansIsland Gilligan sort of way.]] In AVeryBradySequel [[spoiler: Carol's first husband is the professor and a character mentions his son Gilligan has disappeared.]]
* CharacterExaggeration: The theatrical films exaggerated the characters' personalities a bit such as Jan's jealousy towards Marcia and Cindy's tattling, but true to the show. They were the characters from the later seasons stuck in the 1990s. The TV movie The Brady Bunch in the White House made them unloveable parodies, such as Marcia crying when she got captain of the cheerleading squad and the vote wasn't unanimous.
* DoubleEntendre: Too many to list here. Most come courtesy of Mike and Carol.
* TheFilmOfTheSeries
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Brady Bunch Movie]]
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: [[invoked]] In this movie's universe:
** Jan develops her jealousy of Marcia out of mental instability. (In the original series, it was envy, fueled by Jan's teachers constantly boasting about Marcia.)
** Greg is a complete geek and socially clueless loser, and "BMOC" wannabe, unlike the original series where Greg was one of the Big Men on Campus.
* BetterThanABareBulb: The movie and its sequel absolutely ''love'' {{lampshading}} and playing with the various Brady Bunch tropes.
* BigDamnMovie
* CallBack: Quite a few scenes and subplots reference iconic ''Brady Bunch'' episodes.
* CoverSong: During the school dance scene, Greg performs "Till There Was You," which was performed by the original Greg in Season 2's "Where There's Smoke" (Barry Williams' first vocal solo in the original series).
* DancePartyEnding: The ending of the movie shows the Bradys dancing around in their squares[[note]]which have actually become rectangles to accommodate widescreen theaters[[/note]], while also engaging in miscellaneous gags (eg, Marcia simultaneously appearing in her spot and Jan's, Carol inviting Mike to go kinky with her and some vegetable oil).
* DawsonCasting: Christine Taylor (Marcia), Jennifer Elise Cox (Jan), and Christopher Daniel Barnes (Greg) were all in their twenties when cast. Interestingly, Cox is actually ''older'' than Taylor in real life.
* {{Deconstruction}}: Played off how warped the Bradys looked in comparison to real life (specifically, the idealized early-[[TheSeventies Seventies]] Bradys against the grungy mid-[[TheNineties Nineties]] Los Angeles) for all its worth.
* DidIJustSayThatOutLoud: After Jan runs away from home, Cindy becomes confused over whether or not she should "tattle" on her. When she asks her parents if she can tattle when something urgent is happening, they tell her to wait until the morning, so she blurts out, "But Jan could be dead by then!"
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Marcia's friend Noreen lusts for her.
* FakeStatic: Used by Mr. Dittmeyer while talking with his boss in the opening scene.
* TheFilmOfTheSeries
* FollowTheLeader: Although the ''Dragnet'' movie did it first, it was the success of this film that inspired other big screen remakes to lampoon their source material rather than play it straight. Films such as ''Starsky & Hutch'', ''I Spy'', ''The Green Hornet'', and ''21 Jump Street'', to name a few.
* FreezeFrameBonus: At the very beginning of the TalentShow scene there's a brief exterior shot of the High School, then a bus sweeps by with "[[ThePartridgeFamily The Partridge Family]]" on the side
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In an interesting way. At the end of movie, Grandma (Florence Henderson) cures Jan of her inner voice by [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan shaking her and shouting,]] "Jan! Cut the crap!" In the original theatrical version, however, she yelled, "Jan! Cut that shit out!" (Maybe that was too much for the video-watching audience.)
* TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry: Marcia and Jan, big time.
* GroinAttack: Peter accidentally steps on a bass drum pedal, resulting in this to a guy that had been tormenting him at school.
* HearingVoices: Jan [[spoiler: and Cindy]] in ''The Brady Bunch Movie''.
* HereWeGoAgain: At the end of the movie, Jan (with help from her grandmother) manages to banish the inner demons that turned her against Marcia, but then Cindy develops a jealousy of Jan.
* MissingTrailerScene: The trailer showed Peter delivering his Creator/HumphreyBogart impression ("Porkshops and appleschause") to one of the girls at school.
* MisterSandmanSequence: Hey, folks, it's TheNineties!
* NotAllowedToGrowUp: Due to the writers' ignoring the previous spin-offs (except ''The Brady Kids''), ''none'' of the main characters have aged since the fourth season of ''TheBradyBunch''.
* OpeningShoutOut: While visiting Sears, The Brady Bunch and Alice use demo camcorders and monitors to form the squares seen in the show's opening and ending credits.
* RearrangeTheSong: The updated instrumental version just before the end credits.
* RemakeCameo: Florence Henderson, Christopher Knight, Ann B. Davis, Barry Williams, (in deleted scenes) Mike Lookinland, Maureen [=McCormick=] and Susan Olsen. Also, Davy Jones revisits his original episode appearence, and by extension, fellow [[TheMonkees Monkees]] Peter Tork and Micky Dolenz.
* ShoppingMontage
-->'''Mike:''' "Put on your Sunday best, kids; we're going to Sears!"
* ShoutOut: The vegetable oil Mike and Carol use in the DancePartyEnding serves as a nod to Florence Henderson's "Wessonality" commercials.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Greg, who thinks he's a real ladies man, an all-star athlete and the next big rock star ... except that any self-respecting girl wants nothing to do with him except to tell him he's a geeky loser. Contrasted with the original Greg, who was truly one of the Big Men on Campus.
** Additionally the movie Greg fully embraces "Johnny Bravo" – in the high school dance scene, where he is quickly booed offstage less than two bars into his song "Til There Was You" – whereas the TV Greg rejected the concept as a manufactured marketing gimmick that would also have eliminated his creative input. (Ironically, Barry Williams did later record an album of songs under the "Johnny Bravo" umbrella.)
* TraumaticHaircut: Jan dreams of giving one to Marcia. [[spoiler:Unfortunately for Jan, [[BeautyIsNeverTarnished Marcia still looks nice afterward.]]]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:A Very Brady Sequel]]
* AccidentalInnuendo: Invoked on the writers' part when Greg asks some girls visiting the concession stand if they'd like a hot wiener.
** Later, Cindy tells Mike that Marcia's "getting [[StealthPun lei'd]] by those Hawaiian boys."
* ActorAllusion:
** Dr. Whiteman offers Trevor a macadamia nut, in reference to when actor John Hillerman was the spokesperson for Mauna Loa Macadamia Nuts. In addition, it's not the first time Hillerman has been seen [[Series/MagnumPI hanging around a Hawaiian mansion.]]
** Tim Matheson played another adventurer in ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest''.
* AdvertisingCampaigns: Dr Whiteman's macadamia nuts and Carol's Aquanet references commercial campaigns featuring John Hillerman and Florence Henderson.
* AlmostKiss: FlirtyStepsiblings Greg and Marcia lean forward for a kiss while in the attic together, but the other kids storm in. Greg tries to cover up his and Marcia's act by saying they were making shadow puppets.
* AndYouWereThere: Trevor says this after waking up from a ''[[WesternAnimation/TheBradyKids Brady Kids]]''-inspired hallucination.
* TheBusCameBack: Tiger and Cousin Oliver, two infamously short-lived ''Brady Bunch'' characters, appear very briefly at Mike and Carol's anniversary party.
* CallBack: Quite a few scenes and subplots reference iconic ''Brady Bunch'' episodes.
** One scene Calls Back Marcia's broken nose, which ''already'' received a Call Back in the first movie.
* CastingGag: Tim Matheson, who played Roy/Trevor, previously played one of the children in ''Yours Mine and Ours'', the movie that inspired ''The Brady Bunch''.
* CasualKink:
-->'''Greg:''' ''(thinking)'' [[FlirtyStepsiblings Marcia]] looks great in those ropes.
* CatapultNightmare: Mike and Carol do this after an ImagineSpot about having to share their bed with "Roy".
* ContrivedCoincidence:
** In Hawaii, [[spoiler:Jan just ''happens'' to meet a boy with the same name as her [[GirlfriendInCanada imaginary boyfriend]], and he ''miraculously'' falls in love with her back]].
** Also, Carol just ''happens'' to stumble upon Dr. Whiteman while running away from Trevor, and he just ''happens'' to [[spoiler: have a son[[note]][[Series/GilligansIsland Gilligan]][[/note]] who disappeared on the ''exact same'' boat ride that took Roy Martin away from Carol]].
* CoverSong: The new cast performs three songs from the original series: the theme song, "It's Time to Change" and "Good Time Music".
* CreativeClosingCredits: Featuring animation inspired by ''TheBradyKids''. (Doubles as a CallBack to Trevor's MushroomSamba)
* CrossoverShip: [[invoked]] [[spoiler: In this movie's universe, Carol's original husband was '''[[Series/GilligansIsland Professor]]''' Roy Martin, and Mike's original wife was [[Series/IDreamOfJeannie Jeannie]]]].
* EditedForSyndication: Some "family friendly" networks remove the MushroomSamba, cutting directly to disheveled Roy waking up the next day, late for the auction.
* EvilRoy: Subverted slightly as 'Roy Martin' is an alias used by the bad guy.
* TheFilmOfTheSeries
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: Lampshaded when Trevor calls them, "decade impaired."
* FishOutOfWater: Trevor, when in the Brady house.
* FlirtyStepsiblings: Greg and Marcia start growing romantically attracted, and [[spoiler: finally kiss]] near the end of the film.
** RealLifeWritesThePlot: The original Greg Brady (Barry Williams) and Marcia Brady (Maureen [=McCormick=]) had a romance while working on the show
* GenreSavvy: After Dr. Whiteman and Carol tell Trevor about [[spoiler: how Dr. Whiteman's son and Carol's husband happened to disappear on the same boat ride]], Trevor raises the possibility that [[spoiler: [[Series/GilligansIsland the people riding the boat got stuck on a deserted island]]]].
* HaveAGayOldTime: Twice. First, when Carol's kidnapper rents a jeep, Carol wishes she could "be gay again", and comments that she would be if Marcia, Cindy, Jan and Alice were around. Later, the rental man asks Mike whether he knows his wife wants to be gay, so Mike exclaims that's what the entire Brady Bunch wants to be.
* HereWeGoAgain: At the end of the movie, [[spoiler:[[IDreamOfJeannie Jeannie]]]] visits the Brady Bunch, claiming to be Mike's wife.
* IntoxicationEnsues: After Alice makes and samples some spaghetti sauce with some hallucinogenic mushrooms she found in Trevor's bag, she becomes so high, she stuffs herself in the refrigerator, just to see if closing the door really does turn off the light.
* ItsAllMyFault: Each Brady, as well as Alice, and even Cindy's doll, blames himself or herself for letting Trevor kidnap Carol. [[spoiler: Marcia [[NeverMyFault doesn't blame herself]], and instead thinks, "[[TheUnfavorite This is all Jan's fault]]."]]
* KilledOffscreen: In the final scene, a gag ends with the implied deaths of CousinOliver and Tiger the dog in a car-pedestrian accident. Bobby and Cindy witness the crash … and go on like nothing happened.
* LineOfSightName: How Jan comes up with the name of her "[[GirlfriendInCanada boyfriend]]", George Glass.
** When she first sees the glass, it has some orange juice in it, so she claims to have a boyfriend named, "George Tropicana." She changes the last name after Carol asks, "Is he Cuban?"
* LogoJoke: The Paramount mountain fades into one of the mountains on the island where Roy and Trevor found the horse.
* MakeoverMontage: Hairstylist Sergio (Creator/DavidSpade) and his coworkers try to give Carol a new hairdo. [[spoiler:Her hair proves too stiff for the team to restyle, so she still looks exactly the same at the end of the montage.]]
* MissingTrailerScene: The original trailer featured two gags involving the Brady Bunch squares: one in which the clan [[BreakingTheFourthWall breaks the fourth wall]] to exclaim, "We're back!", and one in which Trevor walks into Mike's square.

-->'''Roy/Trevor:''' "Oh,no...I'm tripping with the Bradys!"

* NeverTrustATrailer: ''Entertainment Weekly'' expressed disappointment at the fact the Brady Bunch did not spend as much time in Hawaii as the ads seemed to suggest.

* ProductPlacement:
-->'''Carol:''' Thank goodness I use Aquanet!
* RefugeInAudacity: The entirety of the FlirtyStepSiblings subplot. The writers drive the point home by having "If Loving You is Wrong" in the background during their flirting.

** Signs at the construction site are marked REED DESIGN, in honor of the original man named Brady.
* SimilarSquad: Mrs. Cummings' daughters are amazingly similar to the Brady Girls in looks and behavior, except that they're black.
* ThatRemindsMeOfASong: While Mike, Alice, and the Brady Kids fly a plane to Hawaii, Cindy asks if anyone knows how to feel better about Carol's kidnapping. Greg then pulls a guitar out of {{Hammerspace}}, and all the Brady Kids start dancing in the aisles, performing "Good Time Music."
* ThrowTheDogABone: [[spoiler:Jan acquiring a much longed-for boyfriend who's as awkward and dorky as she is. Plus, Marcia stops playing the bitchy older sister and is genuinely happy for her.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:Mike punches Trevor after rescuing Carol.]]
* TheUnfavorite: Jan, to the extent where Marcia asks someone to kidnap her.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Peter's voice is squeaky again, after changing at the end of the last film (Although to be fair, nothing other than the title, and Jan ditching her glasses in favor of contact lenses, says that this movie takes place after the first one).
