Coming October 2022: "The Last Folk Hero: The Life and Myth of Bo Jackson"

What the f^%$ is this?

So tonight I was watching the Brady Bunch Movie, which was a shockingly funny—and pitch-perfect—flick. The sequel wasn’t nearly as good (they rarely are), but it wasn’t terrible either. While IMDBing the films, I discovered something absolutely shocking: In 2002 there was a third installment, The Brady Bunch in the White House. I’m not sure if this ever actually reached theatres, but, well, eh, holy friggin’ cow. How did this movie ever get made? How did all six kids and Alice decline the opportunity to reprise their roles, yet Shelley Long and Gary Cole—the only two reputable thespians—return?

And why, at 12:44 am, am I actually pondering such things?

Goodnight …
