5.0 out of 5 stars Fantabulous!, 27 Dec. 2003

This review is from: Addams Family [DVD] [1991] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I grew up with this film so maybe I'm biast. It was this film that made me fall in love with the delightful Christina Ricci and making Wednesday Addams my idol.
What's so lovable about these characters, is that they don't KNOW they're weird. To them burying a cat alive is perfectly normal. The reactions of those around them is hilarious and you can't help but wonder why someone wouldn't be impressed by the blood soaked Shakespere performance of Wednesday and Pugsley. Beautifully gothic sets suit the Addams perfectly.
Anyone watching this however should not expect a deep a meaningfull plot. That's not what these films are about. Funny, beautiful and an absolute delight. A great film for you to just sit and watch over and over again, each time noticing more and more things about not only the characters but everything around.
(A special note on the lighting which I always loved. The subtle effect of Mortisha's eyes always being highlighted while the rest of her face is shadowed.)
So if you like a good fun film to watch, a fan of mad outrageous sets and characters, then this is a film for you.
