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

Near the end of the movie, when the family is playing the "Wake the Dead" game in the family cemetery, one headstone in the foreground says Ansel Addams, a reference to the famous photographer Ansel Adams. See more »
When 'Gordon' and Tully meet for the first time in Tully's office, Gordon grabs Tully by the shirt just below the neck. In the next shot his hand is around Tully's throat. 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.
