The Addams Family is an atmospheric, funny, perfectly cast 90s gem.
It feels a bit sketchy, like one skit leading to the next but its sublimely acted, gorgeous to look at, and most importantly, funny.
When a film is based on a single panel comic strip, expect it to feel like skits glued together with a slim story.
This film was never released on DVD outside the USA.
I don't know the reason behind this, yet its sequel, Addams Family Values did receive a UK region 2 release.
Before you buy it, check if you have either a region 1 DVD player/laptop/computer, or a multi-region DVD player/laptop/computer.
This way a great film will avoid unfair negative reviews from ignorant customers.
