Trivia

Adding more than just make up to the character, Morticia Addams is always lit separate from everyone else in a scene. Her lighting always consists of one beam of light across her eyes that gradually fades outward to enhance her classic look. See more »

Goofs

When Debbie is speeding in her Mercedes after Fester and Thing, she nearly rear-ends a Lincoln Continental. In the next scene, she's driving behind a completely different car and the same Lincoln she was behind can be seen driving the other way down the road, and she nearly hits it head on. See more »

A sequel that lives up to the original!
13 May 2001 | by (10essee) – See all my reviews

"Addams Family Values" is *finally* a sequel that lives up to the original. I thought this film was just as good as the first film if not better. I am so glad that the original cast decided to come back for the sequel (the only original cast member that didn't was "Grandmama," but she had the smallest role out of the whole family so it didn't matter too much). Yet again Raul Julia and Christina Ricci turn in great performances as Gomez and Wednesday Addams, respectively, and Joan Cusack gives a great performance also as the homicidal Debbie Jillinsky who marries men for their money and then kills them on their wedding night, but after marrying Fester she just can't seem to get rid of him. The whole part of the script that dealt with Wednesday and Pugsley at summer camp was hilarious. And I thought Mercedes McNab as Amanda, who had a cameo as the girl scout in the first film, was hilarious and good in her role. The only thing I found sort of annoying about this movie was that it centered on Uncle Fester again. But, overall this is a great sarcastic comedy that lives up to it's predecessor.

My Verdict: 7/10
