Did You Know?


The shot during the opening credits in which the Addams Family members are sitting down in a line with each doing the hair of the one before them is a remake of a similar group shot in the first season episode "The Addams Family" (1964) {Thing Is Missing (#1.23)}. See more »


While being grappled by one of the plant's two forward-facing "arms", Parley Baer, the actor for Lafferty's character, can clearly be seen surreptitiously reaching his leather-gloved left hand over toward the plant's other, incorrectly-stationary "arm", as a hasty reminder to the film/animation crew that this other "arm" of the plant is supposed to be curling in on him, also.

Another failed revival
19 October 2005 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Like so many movies that revisit an old TV series, this one misses the mark. The stark look of the video tape it was shot on, the bright color, and the set lighting that looks more like a nighttime landscape showcase do nothing to capture the charm of the old show. I wouldn't go as far as to say it should have been in black and white, but film instead of videotape, please, and do something with the lighting to give it a more appropriate look. The house is nothing like the old Addams mansion - rather it looks like a place where Hollywood types frequently party.

The original actors are all good, but the story is not. After awhile it all seems inane and boring. And the Halloween song near the end... please... make it stop (or at least hit the MUTE button.) Another opportunity to pay proper homage to a classic 60's show is lost. I know it was a TV-movie, but if that's the result, why bother?
