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

In the TV series, The Addams Family (1964), Fester is Morticia's uncle. In the films, however, Fester is Gomez's brother. See more »

Goofs

When Gomez goes to the police station to report his brother Fester being held captive by his wife Debbie, the Desk Officer (Nathan Lane) has Sergeant stripes on his uniform sleeves, but a patrolman's badge (silver) on his shirt. While Sergeants wear gold badges in many Dept's, not all Dept's do. In many small communities, only command officers (lieutenants, captains, chiefs) wear gold badges. See more »

Funny as hell!
29 October 2001 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Usually I don't like horror comedies and I hate mainstream movies,but "Addams Family Values" completely cracked me up.It was so immensely enjoyable and funny as hell!Especially the first Thanksgiving Day performance,where Wednesday Addams(Christina Ricci)as a Pocahontas,and other Indians took a revenge on American colonists-I almost cried with laughter during that scene!I wonder what Americans think about it?As for Christina Ricci,she simply steals the show in this one!I'm looking forward to see this talented,young actress in more movies.The other actors are also excellent,and the film is filled with wonderful touches of black humour.Highly recommended.
