The Family business

There can't be a single person in the civilised world who isn't familiar with The Addams Family, they're pretty much ingrained into popular culture. Maybe that's more of a result of the TV show than this film, but with such a solid set of quirky and memorable characters, it was just a case of getting the casting right to ensure big screen success with this adaptation. For anyone who isn't familiar... read more

A good movie

To start with, I have never seen the TV-show so I can't say if it is a good adaptation. All I can say is that, when it was released, there was a pretty good buzz around this flick, it was eventually a success and I really enjoyed it back then when I was a kid. No so long ago I rewatched it with my step-son and, again, I really enjoyed it. Once again, I really enjoyed the tone, the look of the whol... read more

Too many gags?

Cute movie, with all the references you want to the tv series you remember. And with an updated feeling, that makes it a little edgier and hipper. Unfortunately all these gags can get in the way. The plot was pretty thin, and took forever to get anywhere. The characters are good, and I eventually became quite attached to them. Didn't hold up well to a second viewing, although there are some g... read more

31 Days of Horror (Halloween 2015) (45 movies items)

"OCTOBER 25 Extra: After watching Values yesterday, I really wanted to watch the first one. Even though the family is completely dysfunctional and morbid, they seem to be a "happy" family. I also have to admit that I love the romantic relationship between Gomez and Morticia. Despite being devoted to death and pain, they seem to have a very loving relationship. I also love how regally beautiful Morticia is. She makes the dark, Goth look look very appealing. FAVORITE SCENE: Gomez and his train wr"

31 Days of Horror (Halloween 2016) (47 movies items)

"OCTOBER 9: This movie (and the sequel) are rapidly becoming a couple of my favorites. Having never seen the original television show, I suppose my comment here is somewhat uninformed, but I can't imagine any other actors/actresses fulfilling these iconic roles. Raul Julia is my absolute favorite. Despite their morbid lifestyle, it's refreshing seeing the passion between Morticia and Gomez. FAVORITE SCENE: All the many lackadaisical ways Wednesday keeps trying to kill Pugsley. FAVORITE DEATH: "

October 2016 Horrorfest (21 movies items)

"Re-watch - Oct. 22nd The kiddo has seen Addams Family Values before (though today she didn't recall having seen it), but hadn't watched this one yet so I figured we'd give it a shot together. It had been longer than I realized since I'd last watched it, and I'd somehow forgotten about the scene above which freaked her out for a moment before she realized it wasn't real. Of course my laughing hysterically during those moments probably helped calm her down too. I've always loved the way they adap"

30 From 91: My Favorite Films From 1991 (30 movies items)

"In this family, dysfunctionality is a form of functionality. Stretching mom out on a torture rack or throwing the baby out of a third story window is simply a way of communicating "You're okay, I'm okay". And that's just one of the advantages that comes with having the last name of Addams. Another one is that, no matter how many family-friendly games of tag you play, your cousin will always be Itt.
