Mia Farrow, John Cassavetes and Ruth Gordons performances tip this psychological chiller into classic status.
If this installment lays on the moral (all families are freaky in their own ways) a bit thick, it has just enough wit and weirdness to honor its sourc ..

Like the candy that will inevitably get loaded into Addams Family branded buckets on stoops at the end of the month, its only empty calories.
Even children will understand that the theme of encouraging individual expression would be more compelling if the storyline wasnt so resolutely dull.
It helps, of course, that hes playing a world weary cyborg assassin, which doesnt call for much in the way of facial gestures or verbal animation.
Matt Liebermans nearly laugh free script prefers to rehash Charles Addams old one liners or offer terrible updates.

Sound familiar Its a fun little nod to Fishers star turn in Bo Burnhams Eight Grade and its a shame it isnt utilised more.
but the new animated feature The Addams Family isnt particularly mysterious.
The film forgets to do anything meaningful or particularly amusing with Nick Krolls Uncle Fester or Bette Midlers Grandmama.
Think of this as entry level Addams, and thats also its limitation.
SYNOPSIS: An animated version of Charles Addams series of cartoons about a peculiar, ghoulish family.

Consequence Of Sound
In a failed joke, Snoop Dogg has been cast to provide the beeps and boops for Cousin Itt.
Most painful of all is the fact that Wednesdays once scythe sharp wit is in urgent need of a whetstone.

Aside from an amusing Uncle Fester its not funny enough, theres nothing for anyone over the age of 11.
For a pleasant change, the lesson to be learned here about non conformity isnt condescendingly spoon fed.
In fact, its celebration of freak ness reminds one of The Greatest Showman, sans the songs.
Of course, thats not how this film can work, stacked as it is with a pablum esque moral about being yourself and embracing your unique qualities.
The gags in this film are less sardonic than those found in the original childrens TV series way back in the 1960s.
After all, theyre creepy and theyre kooky, theyre altogether ooky.
Chicago Sun Times
Their take on The Addams Family isnt a scream, its a painfully generic kids film.
I cant help feeling (and saying) that the 1991 live action version... was better and much funnier.
It feels like a long time since Addams style wordplay was last in cinemas and it feels good to hear it again.
Its nice to have the Addams back in our lives, but it would have been nice if they could have been a little more ookie.
Creepy, kooky, spooky and altogether ooky fun for longtime fans and new ones just discovering this unique family dynamic for the first time.
Its a heavy handed and obvious theme, and one thats too earnest to allow for the subversive humour associated with the characters.
And Moretzs Wednesday Addams has a Daria esque quality thats appealing.
Those movies totally hold up, and feature pantheon level performances from Raul Julia, Anjelica Huston, Christina Ricci, and Joan Cusack.
Its a grossly unimaginative story that packs on grossly unimaginative jokes.
Anyone whos still engaged by the end of the movie is probably too young to remember the original.
Parker, whos Margauxs daughter, learns from Wednesday that she doesnt want to be her mothers definition of normal and adopts a goth look.
A fun reboot that leaves one wanting more adventures from this mythical clan.
But, in a surprising turn of events, The Addams Family is able to burrow itself into your heart because it doesnt aim to be a live action adaptation.
Theres plenty of fun to be had with this snappy animated retread... there are enough confrontations and spook based visual gags to make it an enjoyabl ..
When the movie doesnt take on the typical clichs of animated movies it has its own, oddball charm.

Duh duh duh duh, click click, duh duh duh duh, click click, ad infinitum.
Then again, this new Addams Family isnt working overtime to make adults laugh.
But the main story is bland, warmed over be yourself pablum youve seen a thousand times.
Theres a sugary sweetness about it that makes it seem rather more warm and fuzzy than what we normally associate with the macabre essence of all thing ..
Plus, who doesnt want to see Lurch sing a soothing rendition of Everybody Hurts Snap.
The Only Critic
Unfortunately, The Addams Family loses a great deal of steam when its reasonably amusing cavalcade of oddball gimmicks gives way to a ham fisted messa ..
This fourth movie adaptation and first animated feature based on Charles Addams cartoons is strangely flat.
It seems that theres something timeless about Gothicism, most especially when its infused with pun filled humour.
This is, quite literally, the definition of a clichd movie villain.
Battle Royale With Cheese
The Addams Family is unlikely to charm longstanding fans and will likely bore young moviegoers.

Jmuvies Blog Spot
It underestimates its viewers, losing the nostalgic halo that could have worked as a impeller of empathy towards the story.
The Addams Family franchise will no doubt survive a mediocre entry.

Next Best Picture
The only thing ruining its pleasant aesthetics is the Addams ghastly home.
But the series standby themes of individuality versus conformity and family acceptance still shine through.
Everything drifts to an action plot that has little to do with the gothic eccentricities of the family. And the edifying messages for children appear.
