I thought this was a cute little homage to old Sitcom stars. Many of the original cast of the king of sitcoms, The Brady Bunch, were in this, including Cousin Oliver! Jennifer Elise Cox even had a role. She was the actress who played Jan in The Brady Bunch Movie (Marsha, Marsha Marsha!) and pretty much stole the show. She has her moment in this one with her “Michelle, Michelle, Michelle” (and her “Laura, Laura, Laura,” in case we didn’t get it the first time.)
Greg Evigan of BJ and the Bear, and Telma Hopkins(Family Matters, Bosum Buddies) who added a ghostly presence were cast, As well as Beth Broderick of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. She is always a welcome presence in a movie lending as always credibility, warmth, and common sense. Shout out to Mike Lookinland who played a very odd cousin with verve.
The plot was pretty slight with Aaron O’Connell trying to propose to Haylie Duff (7th Heaven among others) at a Dude Ranch (where else?) in the midst of feuding families.
It was harmless fun.
