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.
Gomez and Morticia Addams move to a derelict asylum in New Jersey, surrounded by a marsh and hidden by a fog at the top of a mountain, to raise a family. Thirteen years later, Gomez is teaching his son Pugsley the saber tradition of the Addams family while Wednesday is questioning her mother about the world outside the mansion gate. Meanwhile, TV host Margaux Needler is busy designing and building the planned community of Assimilation nearby. When the marsh is drained and the Addams home is revealed, Margaux decides to get rid of the Addams Family.Written by

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.
