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.
Convinced they'd be better off raising themselves, the Willoughby children hatch a sneaky plan to send their selfish parents on vacation. The siblings then embark on their own high-flying adventure to find the true meaning of family.
Maleficent and her goddaughter Aurora begin to question the complex family ties that bind them as they are pulled in different directions by impending nuptials, unexpected allies and dark new forces at play.
Gomez and Morticia Addams move to a derelict mansion in New Jersey surrounded by a marsh and hidden by a fog in the top of a mountain to raise a family. Thirteen years later, Gomes is teaching his son Pugslay the saber tradition of the Addams family while Wednesday is questioning her mother about the world outside the mansion gate. Meanwhile a community is raised by Margaux Needler, who is the responsible for the sales of the house, and the marsh is drained. When she sees the old mansion on the neighborhood, she decides to get rid of the Addams Family.Written by

Thing is a left hand in this version. Unlike previous incarnations when he was usually right. (Save for the 1960s series when he would sometimes change back and forth). See more »

Wednesday can take care of herself.
It's not Wednesday I'm worried about, it's all the others. We may have to provide an alibi.

Not sure what movie the majority of the critics have seen, for I saw a fairly entertaining reimagining of everyone's favorite family of ghouls that was not only very funny but also had a surprising amount of heart to it. It is not a great, but it is solid enough and the casting for the Addams proves to be brilliantly selected.
