Storyline

On any day of the week, you could expect a newborn baby to be nurtured and loved by his older sister. Except, of course, if it's Wednesday. Pubert is the latest addition to the Addams family and, to prevent sibling rivalry escalating to fratricide, Wednesday and Pugsley are shipped off to summer camp and a nanny is hired. Debby Jellinsky is great with wrinkling baldies, which makes her the perfect nanny for Pubert and the unlikely wife of Uncle Fester. The question is..."Is she grave-digging or gold-digging?"

Trivia

Not only is Gary's play "puerile and under-dramatized" (as Wednesday puts it), it's historically inaccurate. The Chippewa are from the Midwest. Pocahontas was a Powhatan, a tribe indigenous to Virginia. Neither she nor the Chippewa would've been present at the first Thanksgiving. Moreover, by 1621 (the first Thanksgiving), Pocahontas had already married John Rolfe, moved to England, and died. See more »

Goofs

During the whole movie, in some scenes where the Addamses wear pale make-up, they suddenly change from pale make-up to regular make-up. See more »

Grandma: Dearly beloved...
Wednesday: [the cat mews and Wednesday shakes the box] Shh! Quiet!
Grandma: [starts piling dirt on the box]

Ricci rules
3 November 2001 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is a film with several excellent performances, but that of Christina "Wednesday" Ricci is near perfect. The reluctant smile outside the "harmony hut" is Oscar material. And Christina as Pocahantas is the very definition of "cute".

Of the others, Joan Cusack also stands out. I doubt anyone else could play the part of "the black widow" quite as well, with just the right mix of sleaze and slapstick. Her deranged laughter alone is worth half the rental fee.

It may not be a classic but it is solid entertainment, with few if any weak passages. Go and see it!
