Did I grow up Brady? Did I! One of the first of the 1970s TV series to get the big-screen treatment, The Brady Bunch Movie remains virtually the only successful film from that genre -- one that studios continue to experiment in with disastrous results. (Full disclosure: We here at filmcritic.com are rabidly fanatical for Josie and the Pussycats.)
