The eccentrically macabre family moves to a bland suburb where Wednesday Addams' friendship with the daughter of a hostile and conformist local reality show host exacerbates conflict between the families.

Updated-for-the-'90s version of the original Addams Family show. The family remains the same: Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, Granmama, Lurch, Thing, and Cousin Itt. ... See full summary »
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?
Debbie first attempts to kill Fester by throwing an AC-powered boombox into the hotel bathtub, where Fester is relaxing. When she does, a ton of sparks fly from the bathtub, and all the light bulbs around the mirror blow out. This shouldn't happen for two reasons. First, the light bulbs would have to be in series with the boombox to blow out if the boombox was short-circuited; which would mean that they wouldn't work unless something was plugged into that outlet all the time, and that only one would blow out (it would act like a fuse). Obviously, lights and outlets are not wired in series, so those bulbs should not have blown out. Additionally, the boombox is plugged into a GFCI-protected outlet, which would turn off in milliseconds in that situation, preventing any sparks or short-circuits from occurring. This is also assuming that the tap water was conductive enough to short the boombox.
In real life, if the tap water was that conductive, and Debbie threw the boombox in, its power would be interrupted in milliseconds. The light bulbs wouldn't blow out either - if anything, they would dim until power was turned off (i.e. when the GFCI outlet tripped). 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.
