During one of the several behind the scenes featurettes here, Jeff "Will Ryder" Mullen remarks to the camera, "This is even better than the original!" We couldn't agree more.
As anyone reading this surely knows, Not the Bradys XXX was one of the biggest runaway hits of the contemporary porn era. And while it was certainly a very solid movie all around, its success, in this reviewer's eyes, had more to do with hitting a certain cultural nerve at just the right time than much else. Well Marcia, Marcia, Marcia! surpasses its progenitor by a considerable breadth.
Teagan Presley takes the title role over from the now under contract Hillary Scott, and carries it admirably. She becomes dead-set on starting up a band with her brothers and sisters so as to enter a musical contest that could win her a date with her dreamboat, Danny Jones (Evan Stone). Only problem is, someone claiming to be Marcia has sent the organizers of the contest her panties along with a filthy letter describing all the things she'd like to do to Danny. When Mr. and Mrs. Brady are alerted of this, they give Marcia a month-long grounding that will bar her from making it to the contest. What to do?!
Incorporating the music contest storyline gave Mullen a perfect excuse to exploit his great love of composing, and he in fact crafted an original song for the Brady kids to perform ("Sisters and Brothers") that nails the apropos treacly style spot-on.
Of course, as with the original, the art direction by Mullen's partner Scott David is spot-on as well, right down to the faux autographed poster of Danny hanging on Marcia's wall. (Though hate to break it to you, guys, but there's a little problem with the line across the bottom of that poster reading "Your Breaking My Heart.")
Oh yeah, and there's sex in this movie too. Really great sex, as it turns out. Teagan's much-publicized final boy/girl scene opposite Stone, which naturally closes the show, is a knockout ... in more ways than one. (You'll just have to see it to find out what we mean, but it involves one of the more memorable porn scene moments we can recall.)
Teagan also does a scorching solo at the beginning, and some other highlights include Mikey Butders' Mrs. Robinson-esque seduction by Sienna West, Kris Slater's similar molestation by Gina Lynn, and the lick sesh-cum-threeway with Aurora Snow, Alexis Love and Scott Lyons.
Whether this Bradys will repeat the numbers tallied by the first only time will tell, but as far as repeat viewings go, we predict this one will see many more.
