Trivia

The film was planned to be entirely stop-motion animated with the characters based on Charles Addams' original drawings. Tim Burton was set to co-write and co-produce the film, with the possibility to direct as well. In July 2013, however, it was reported that the film was cancelled. See more »

Even my kid was bored
15 October 2019 | by rob_forgioneSee all my reviews

Look, I like kids films. Simple, funny. Pixar nails it, Illumination is a close second, but I'll say that even the subpar Abominable was better than this. This was...what? Halloween? A dig on HGTV? A chance for actors to make a paycheck between blockbusters by lending their voices to make a decent cast? I rate kids movies based on the reactions by my kids. I've never seen my kid sit for 90 minutes waiting for a punchline then look at me wondering if we're supposed to leave or stay for the movie to make a point.
