Trivia

The mentioning of Debbie's axe-murder of her second husband (and Grandmama's nostalgic sigh when she sees the slide) is a reference to the Addams family's having many ancestors and past cronies who were infamous serial killers, such as Zodiac, The Axeman, Jack the Ripper, et cetera. Wednesday and Pugsley's geeky summer camp pal (David Krumholtz) has a card collection of serial killers. See more »

Goofs

When the back of the "Murderers Killers and Pyschos" card is shown, it contains a typo in the biography that states "Known for marring rich lonely men and then killing them on what hey (sic) expected to be a glorious wedding night, the Black Widow uses a variety of disguises to lull her victims into a sense of false security. Her exact likeness is still unknown to the police." See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Wednesday: [giving a funeral to a cat in a shoe-box] Come, sorrow; we welcome thee. Let us join in grief, rejoice in despair, and honor the fortunate dead.
Grandma: Dearly beloved...
Wednesday: [the cat mews and Wednesday shakes the box] Shh! Quiet!
Grandma: [starts piling dirt on the box]

Alternate Versions

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 »

Better than the original ? I think so.
6 May 1999 | by Bing-18See all my reviews

This film is one of those rare gems, a sequel that is as good as, or even better than the original.

Christina Ricci fulfills all the promise that she showed in the first film, as she really steals the film from her more established co-stars.

The scenes at camp produce some of the best one-liners, and it is great to see an American film that is self-mocking about its image concious rich societies. Lines from Ricci like " Is that your overbite?" and "When they woke up all their old noses had grown back!" are superb and will be much loved in the UK, as it is how much of the States is perceived over here.

Also, Amanda in this movie, is also played by the same girl who played the Girl Scout in the first movie.

Add a little bit of romance between Wednesday and another kid at the camp and you have something for everyone in this wonderfully funny and worryingly endearing movie.
