The Addams step out of Charles Addams' cartoons. They live with all of the trappings of the macabre (including a detached hand for a servant) and are quite wealthy. Added to this mix is a crooked accountant and his loan shark and a plot to slip in the shark's son into the family as their long lost Uncle Fester. Can the false Fester find his way into the vault before he is discovered? Written by

In the television series, Fester was Morticia's uncle (and hence not technically an Addams), but in the films, he is Gomez's brother and is referred to as Fester Addams. See more »
The Latin Sic gorgiamus allos subjectatos nunc" supposedly meaning "We gladly feast on those who would subdue us" is a combination of bad Latin and fake Latin. A better approximation would be:

An amusing film from the popular TV series "The Addams Family"
"The Adams Family" is a very funny film that is very under rated. With a great all star cast you get just what you expect, a great comedy. The TV show was already funny enough, and then the movie came and I was on the floor laughing. It's fun to see a happy dysfunctional family. No, I'm not talking about "The Osbornes". All the characters are great and you really get into it. If you can tell me that you honestly did not get one laugh from this film, there is something very wrong with you. Because it is a very funny film. I would recommend this to anyone. It's a good watch on any day.
