When an adorable baby boy is added to the Addams household, Wednesday and Pugsley do not hate him, they just aren't necessarily excited about his existence. OK...yeah, they do hate him. So they plot to get rid of him one way or another. Meanwhile, their parents hire a nanny for him and she charms Fester, but has evil intentions for him. The Addamses must stop her, but how?
When Joel is showing Wednesday and Pugsley his "Serial Killers and Schizos" cards, the cards in his hand besides The Black Widow are James Earl Ray, (barely visible) David Berkowitz and Lizzie Borden; Pugsley then reveals his Amy Fischer card (misspelled; should have been Fisher). Christina Ricci (Wednesday) later played Lizzie Borden in Lizzie Borden Took an Ax (2014), and The Lizzie Borden Chronicles (2015). Lizzie Borden was tried and found not guilty of the murders. Yet despite this, and the fact that a known violent ex-con was seen hanging around the house at the time of the murders, and subsequently disappeared, many still believe that Lizzie was guilty. Amy Fisher shot and wounded, not killed, one person, and never was suspected of mental illness, so she is not a serial killer, nor a schizo. See more »
During the whole movie, in some scenes where the Addamses appear to be in pale make-up, and in others in regular make-up. These differences are likely due to lighting rather than the color of makeup used. See more »

Come, sorrow; we welcome thee. Let us join in grief, rejoice in despair, and honor the fortunate dead.

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 »
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.
