Last night, out of sheer boredom I watched the Brady Bunch Growing up Brady TV movie…We all know they all hooked up, we know they smoked tons of pot (which was cleverly omitted from the TV movie), mom and Greg Brady went out on a date, Dad was gay…enough…
Barry Williams, if you’re reading this…we know now the stories, it’s over, all the dirt has been spilled, the truth is out. Hang it up, quit trying to milk it, OK?
I’ll admit that the first Brady bunch movie in the early 90’s was clever and cute, played on all your nostalgia, but the second one was unnecessary. No more Brady. Please?
I don’t think he had anything to do with the cheezy movie. He wrote the book over 10 years ago and who knows what brilliant network exec decided to dredge it up. The thing that was so lame was that there was an almost identical show on LAST Sunday on another station. As if there weren’t an original idea in all of Hollywood. (How could there be, if ANYONE thinks some one would want to watch “The Linda McCartney story!” COME ON!)
Barry Williams came to my college when I was a freshman (It was a pretty small, not-famous state school in MN, poor thing… Barry, not me). He dressed up in the Johnny Bravo outfit and dripped sweat on the front two rows and shamelessly touted his book.
I heard he did make out with one of the hotel employees, though.
He came to my college, too… in Des Moines, Iowa. I mean really. At least I was there for a good reason. Heh. He was very smarmy, and definitely gave the impression that he just hasn’t quite let go. It may also be that I don’t like him messing with my nostalgia-- I used to have a crush on Greg!
I, too, watched the last 45 minutes or so of the movie. I noticed that he was the only actual cast memebr to return for it, and after the way the other characters were portrayed, I can’t blame them. Sheesh.
If by “cheesy movie in the early 90’s”, you mean the one with Shelley Long as Mom Brady, that was a satire and it was hilarious. Not to be confused with any made-for-TV schlock. The “Very Brady Sequel” was equally gut-busting.
I thought it was a good movie personally. Maybe because Marcia was pretty much BANGIN thourghout it. Sorry, I’m 16, so don’t think I’m some kinda pedophile or anything. Not that theres anything wrong with those kinda people <<looks around suspiciously>>
Hey - I think he is trying to cash in off The Bunch. So what? What else is he supposed to be doing? He is a has-been that had a show for a few minutes back in the seventies, and then nothing. What is wrong with Barry trying to make rent by writing a book, or making a made for TV movie? I feel little need to be down on the guy. I would do the same if I were in his shoes.
