Writer Marc Cushman was competing against himself at the Adult Video News Awards in January 1992. He had five nominations in the same category: Best screenplay - Video. "Maddams Family" was one. All those nominations seemed to cancel Markman out - he lost five out of five. See more »

Horticia: How's the market today, Cortez?
Cortez: It's not too good, Horticia.
Cortez: I am afraid I'm fully invested in ammunitions factories.
Cortez: All this peace breaking out in the world I think we might very well be ruined.
Horticia: How sad, mon amour! It seems that no one wants to blow anything up anymore.
Cortez: "Mon amour". You spoke French.

Gothic fornication

While this adult spoof may seem to be cashing in on the at that time recent box office success of The Addams Family (1991) it really has little to do with the movie version, being more an affectionate spoof (in more ways than one) of the Sixties sitcom. The finger snapping 'credit sequence' (if you could call it that) is even in black and white. And when you remember that Gomez and Morticia Addams are often credited as being the first couple on American Television whom viewers could actually believe to have any sort of passionate love life, the series lends itself well for this kind of treatment. Of course, in The Maddams Family everybody gets into the action (except for Grandma and Pugsley, who remain deprived of 'Maddams' counterparts, and that is probably for the best).

Directed and produced by Herschel Savage, a legend from the Dirk Diggler era (who neglects to make a cameo). Ona Zee and an extremely energetic Mike Horner star as Horticia and Cortez. To prove the connection to the TV series, Cortez is often shown handling an old fashioned calculator, which informs him that with peace breaking out all over the world, the family may just be financially ruined. So, Horticia comes up with a plan befitting her name and decides to turn their old Victorian home into a whorehouse. That way they won't have to venture into the scary 'real world'. You see, even the plot is as slight as a 25 minute episode (though many critics would argue the same can be said about any of the Addams features). While both Zee and Horner are certainly capable in the sack, they nevertheless fail to convey the passion of Carolyn Jones/John Astin and Angelica Huston/Raul Julia had.

Wearing a cheap magician's robe and a bad bald-cap, Ron Jeremy is typecast as Uncle Pester, who is deflowered (yeah right) in the garden by the amusingly named Cousin Tit (Charisma). Both Tit and Cortez have their way with Tuesday (Kim Angeli), Horticia's eighteen year old niece as the family members spend most of this feature 'practicing' on each other. Obvsiouly this film tries hard to keep the exact blood relationships a bit ambiguous. Finally Deirdre Holland appears to inspect the whorehouse for a business permit. Naturally she becomes the first customer to try out the services of Crotch the butler (a very stiff Jon Dough) while madam Horticia gleefully joins in. Thingie, a female version of Thing also pops out of her box to lend a hand. The movie ends after a short 70 minutes with Cortez informing Horticia that business is so good that they'll be out of the red in no time (after just one customer). The early nineties brought quite a few of these TV show parodies, and of course Horner and Jeremy are still at it, having recently completed the third installment of 'Not the Bradys XXX' (though neither of them has sex with anybody in that one).
