Co-directors Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon’s computer-animated horror comedy is based on the work of cartoonist Charles Addams. It features the voice talents of Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Finn Wolfhard. After relocating to suburban New Jersey, the Addams family prepares for a major celebration that involves their extended family while maneuvering around the machinations of a devious reality-television host.~Augustine Chay

A surprisingly enjoyable new take on the Adams Family. Animation allows the characters to look more like Charles Adam’s original drawings. But, the story is completely new. And it’s message is very appropriate to today. Aldo, the theme song from the TV show appears multiple times in it’s original form and re-arranged into multiple other musical styles. For that matter, Lurch gets to play multiple keyboard instruments and has a surprisingly good singing voice.
I am a huge Halloween fanatic, so I had my hopes up before this movie even came out. I was not able to see it on the big screen, however I picked this up as soon as it hit the home market. You cannot help but reminisce about the original tv show or even the movie that starred Raul Julia (RIP), but this movie is very entertaining, to say the least. I do not want to give anything away, so just watch it and have an open mind about how families are started, and going through the life stages, etc.
This remake/reboot is a great way to entice new people to enjoy the Addams family. I tried to show the tv show and the movies from the 90’s to my 9 year old with no interest whatsoever. But when this came out in theatres he wanted to see it what it was all about and came home begging for a copy for the house when it came out. That time is here and he has watched it at least a dozen times and now my 3 yr old is interested as well. The movie itself is pretty good modernizing the Addams family for new generations and showing they can adapt and live in today’s world as well! Highly recommended!!!!!
This movie was actually pretty good. I admit the animation style is interesting for some of the characters but I enjoyed this movie. Nick Kroll as uncle fester was a weird choice in my opinion. Every time he spoke i kept picturing Big mouth characters in my head talking, but i love that show so its not too bad. its worth checking out if your a fan of the addams family.
I had high expectations for this movie. While it's animation is good and the acting is great, it's watered down compared to the Adam's Family movies I grew up with. It's a great movie to with the kids, and has an awesome message of excepatannce and individualism.
Went in with low expectations and was pleasantly surprised at how good this movie was. Comparing it to the live action versions is like comparing apples to oranges since both are great in their own way. Love the homage to the tv show at the end.
Great cast, great animation, and a fun movie for the family.
