Synopsis


The Addams Family
Inspired more by the 1960s TV series than by the original Charles Addams New Yorker cartoons, The Addams Family proved to be one of the more successful of the TV shows-turned-movies of the 1990s. The film opens on a recreation of the magazine cartoon wherein the ghoulish Addamses prepare to pour hot oil upon a group of merry Christmas carolers. After a series of vignettes which establish the characters of Gomez (Raul Julia), Morticia (Anjelica Huston), Wednesday (Christina Ricci), Pugsley (Jimmy Workman) and family servants Lurch (Carel Struycken) and Thing (Christopher Hart), the plot proper gets under way. A stranger, played by Christopher Lloyd, shows up on the Addams doorstep, claiming to be long-lost Uncle Fester. It appears, however, that Lloyd is a ringer, in cahoots with attorney Tully Alford (Dan Hedaya) to strip the Addamses of their fortune. In their usual against-the-grain fashion, the Addams Family seems to delight in the possibility that they're being hoodwinked-indeed, not even kidnapping or death threats dampen the Addams clan's joy of living (or should we say dying?). The Addams Family served as the directorial debut of cinematographer Barry Sonnenfeld. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Addams family is a pretty good comedy movie from the 90's witch was a tv show back in the 60's and when i first heard that they were turning the old tv show into a movie i was like oh no but when i saw this in theaters i thought it was pretty good movie and they did a good job and now i hope they release the sequel on blu-ray soon and the blu-ray looks and sounds good and the only thing i wish they would have put on the blu-ray was the music video from m.c hammer that he did for the end credits so if you are a fan of the movie i would check this movie out

    Great movie of a even greater show. Angelica Huston is great. Raul Julia was just awesome. I miss his movies. (He died way too young). I love the one liners: "Don't torture yourself Gomez . . . that's my job!" Also when she's being stretched on the rack and she says seductively to the torturer "You've done this before!" Hysterical! A must own!

    Rarely do films that were TV shows first cast new faces in roles that are already identifiable. The cast of this Addams Family movie is so well chosen that I didn't even think about who originally held the TV roles. Raul Julia & Angelica Huston are so good together; I think they were the best part of this movie. Great Halloween fun even if it's not Halloween yet!

    The Adams Family is something I grew up with and to this day is something I would watch again. I loved how the theme of the movie is family but in a twisted Halloween style ... Kids keep on attempting to murder each other ... Silly kids play nice.

    The Addams Family is a fun adaptation of Charles Addams' cartoons. Spot-on casting and a darkly hilarious script bring Gomez, Morticia and the rest of the family to the big screen with aplomb.

    This film was part of my childhood, and my memories of this film are great. Christopher Lloyd is great in this film. I rank this higher than the squeal, but the squeal isn't a total disaster.
