When an adorable baby boy is added to the Addams household, Wednesday and Pugsley do not hate the baby, they just aren't necessarily excited about his existence. Ok, yeah they do hate the baby. So Wednesday and Pugsley must get rid of the new addition one way or another. Meanwhile a new nanny is added to the household who overtakes Fester. The Addams must stop the nanny, but how?
Wednesday and Pugsley's old-fashioned swimsuits are Victorian styles, circa the late 1800s to early 1900s (Victorian era). In fact, throughout the film, numerous references and styles from the Victorian era are seen in the Addams household. The modest black clothes, towering house and the decor are all from the Victorian and Edwardian era. The family has very few modern items or fixtures in the household (we see Debbie watching television). See more »

When Joel first enters the Harmony Hut to join Wednesday and Pugsley, after Gary takes his book away, he looks around and shrieks in horror to see a poster of Michael Jackson on the far wall. This part has been removed from some TV broadcasts. See more »
ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES is a rare gem of a sequel that surpasses its original in every way possible. The original ADDAMS FAMILY movie had a horribly thin plot and stupid one-liners...but who cared...it had stunning cinematography and and set design! Well, the sequel is less showy with its art direction and focuses more on making us laugh. The screenplay was written by Paul Rudnick, who is the Messiah of One-liners. His script has a wickedly dark sense of humor thats just irresistible. Angelica Huston and Raul Julia are more sensual than ever. Christina Ricci is superb as Wednesday; she brings the perfect sense of melancholy and dryness to her character. My favorite performace though was Joan Cusack, as the diabolical nanny Debbie. She is just a blast to watch as a gold-digging psycho killer who wants Uncle Fester's money. I loved how this movie satirizes the white upper class, which is a perfect contrast to the Addamses themselves. This is one hilarious movie.
