Mike Brady and his wife Carol Brady have just only one week to come up with $20,000 in back taxes or their house is sold and they'll have no choice but to move.

The Brady's try to raise $20,000 to save their house. When Mike and Carol are talking in bed, Mike says to Carol, "Penny for your thoughts." "Twenty thousand of them," which Carol was referring to the money they needed, however, 20,000 pennies is $200, not $20,000. Two million pennies would be $20,000. See more »

U.S. television prints of this film feature several scenes that were not released theatrically or on video, all of which revolve around the Brady neighbors, the Dittmeyers. These scenes include a garage band scene, a scene with termites in the bathroom, and another scene with Mrs. Dittmeyer trying to seduce Peter. See more »
In America, almost all teenagers, who grew up in the late 60's and early 70's, would have loved the TV show. Though I am way past that generation and not even close to America, I still fall in that same category every fan can only wish for one day- this to become a huge movie- and it did.
Though the humour of this movie is of a sarcastic nature, basically ridiculing this family for being out-dated, it still doesn't make this movie less funnier. It only makes us realize, that TV shows before are of a completely different nature, and with that kind of script, no network would even think of accepting it. This movie covered certain things, which could not have been done on 70's TV- like Peter's growing up dilemmas. Everyone gave brilliant performances- there is homage to certain episodes- most of which were very popular- especially the one with Marcia's swollen nose. A bit of trivia- in the TV series- Mr. Dittmeyer is the Brady's neighbors- though I doubt he has ever appeared in any episode, his name has been mentioned on many episodes.
Anyone who was a fan of the TV series should check this movie out. It is definitely a guilty pleasure, which is worth enjoying.
