WITH BARRY WILLIAMS (Greg Brady) LIVE!



Watch as the Sinus crew takes on one of the most entertainingly bad movies ever, the 1988 made-for-TV fiasco 'A Very Brady Christmas', which features all your favorites from the original 'Brady Bunch' television show (except for Cindy). Plotlines and integrity are sacrificed at the altar of schmaltz in this ridiculously good-natured holiday story. Now that the Brady kids have grown up and left the nest, Mom (Florence Henderson) and Dad (Robert Reed) decide to fly them back home for a Christmas reunion. While together, each of the Bradys tries to hide a shameful secret from the rest of the clan: Jan's marriage is a mess, Marcia's husband has lost his job, and Bobby wants to quit grad school to become a race-car driver. Over Christmas dinner, however, all secrets are predictably revealed, except for the most egregious ones: Cindy has been mysteriously replaced by a hot fox who looks nothing like her, Mom and Greg have been getting Oedipal, and Dad Brady has been having sex with other men since the Nixon era. Not to fear, however: what the movie elides, the Sinus crew derides - and gleefully. Come see the Sinus boys ridicule the proceedings, including the absurdly contrived ending (a 'deus ex MOCK-ina' if ever there was one) in which the Bradys manage to free dad from a deadly building collapse through the sheer power of Christmas caroling!



PS. Don't call him Greg Brady.
