Did You Know?

Trivia

Not only is Gary's play "puerile and under-dramatized" (as Wednesday puts it), it's historically inaccurate. The Chippewa are from the Midwest. Pocahontas was a Powhatan, a tribe indigenous to Virginia. Neither she nor the Chippewa would've been present at the first Thanksgiving. Also, by 1621 (the first Thanksgiving), Pocahontas had already married John Rolfe, moved to England, and died. See more »

Goofs

When Debbie is talking to herself about Fester's wealth, she mispronounces "bullion" as "bouillon." See more »

Quotes

[first lines]

Grandma: Dearly beloved...
Wednesday: [the cat mews and Wednesday shakes the box] Shh! Quiet!
Grandma: [starts piling dirt on the box]

It's a pleasant surprise to see sequel live up to the original. All the actors are great, particularly Raul Julia and Christopher Lloyd. Oh, can not forget Anjelica Huston. Sequels rarely live up to their predecessor and that's what makes this movie so special. Filled with humor, Values is highly recommended for all.
