When Wednesday is finished preparing the electric chair, she calls to Pugsley, who is sitting on the floor playing with a toy guillotine. When he stands, there is heavy dust on the seat of his pants from the floor. In the next shot, we see him walking to the electric chair, and the seat of his pants is clean and dust free. See more »
A good, nay great, movie version to the classic 60s series. Raul Julia is great as Gomez, as is Christopher Lloyd as Fester. The story is sound, pretty much better than the sequel. This is a comedy with slightly dark themes, but that doesn't mean the family can not enjoy it. Barry Sonnenfeld is a genius.
