THE ADDAMS FAMILY (1991 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

The Addams Family is quirky and delivers a seamless stream of everything we love about the Addams family with nothing lost as the audience is dipped into another love affair with Morticia and Gomez Addams played in this film by Angelica Huston and Raúl Juliá. While movies can often spiral into their own television series well, it’s not always easy to work a television series into a good movie. This movie blows the lid off that concept with its surreal rendition of the Addams family in all their idiosyncratic behavior. Christopher Lloyd is just plain perfect as the character Fester. It’s a clean family friendly film and a good adult/child share watch.

Storyline

Gomez Addams (Raúl Juliá) misses his long-lost brother Fester (Christopher Lloyd) and rejoices when he seems to have returned.

Additional Thanks

Thank You to Director Barry Sonnenfeld for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producer Graham Place for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Morticia Addams (Anjelica Huston), Gordon Craven (Christopher Lloyd), Tully Alford (Dan Hedaya), Abigail Craven/Dr. Greta Pinder-Schloss (Elizabeth Wilson), Granny (Judith Malina), Lurch (Carel Struycken), Margaret Alford (Dana Ivey), and Judge Womack (Paul Benedict).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It’s true to the ‘T’ to the original series and satisfies right down to its hearse and music.
