The Brady Bunch Movie



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

Sex & Nudity
Violence & Gore
1 to 10

MPAA Rating: PG-13

The Brady Bunch sitcom is now a motion picture with the retro-Bradys trying to stay happy and non-dysfunctional in a '90s world. Shelley Long, Gary Cole, Michael McKean.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Sexual innuendo and references to sex, both heterosexual and homosexual. A man and woman kiss passionately, and several occasions of cuddling and suggestions of impending sex. A woman makes a veiled proposition to two young men. A woman is shown in a sexy outfit.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - The violence in the film is played for laughs: a woman is hit in the rear by a newspaper and falls into the bushes, a man trips on his treadmill and falls into the wall leaving a hole, a man picks up a live wire and is thrown into a wall. A girl is hit in the face with a football and is shown with a grotesquely swollen and discolored nose. A few scenes of yelling and taunting. A young girl runs into the "bad" area of town where she is taunted.

PROFANITY 1 - A couple mild obscenities, some mild sexual innuendo. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Being old-fashioned, losing your home, standing up for what you believe in, family values and family ties.

MESSAGE - Your family will always be there for you; the family that works together can achieve anything.

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
