Looking for something creepy, spooky, kooky and altogether ooky? When long-lost Uncle Fester (Christopher Lloyd) reappears after 25 years in the Bermuda Triangle, Gomez (Raul Julia) and Morticia (Anjelica Huston) plan a celebration to wake the dead. But Wednesday (Christina Ricci) barely has time to warm up her electric chair before Thing points out Fester’s uncharacteristically “normal” behaviour. Could this Fester be a fake, part of a diabolical scheme to raid the Addams fortune?

"The Addams Family" is one of my all-time favourite films and I never really understood all the bashing it got that led to the sparse production of DVDs of it. The film is solid, there are plenty of references to the original cartoons...it's the ultimate Addams Family film.
I have been waiting for this film to be released on Blu-Ray and the result could not be better. There's no grain, the colours are crisp and vibrant, everything is spot on.
The only "problem" I have with this is that there's nothing else apart from the 2 theatrical trailers. No cool extras nor anything alike. HOWEVER there's one thing to praise in the "theatrical trailers". Unlike other editions of old films, the image of the theatrical trailers was also restored. The sound wasn't on the 1st trailer but the picture was in both, which is remarkable.
Get this! And I hope they don't take long before releasing "The Addams Family Values" on Blu-Ray.
Also, for those in the USA or other countries: this release, unlike what Amazon.co.uk says, IS region FREE.
Barry Sonnenfeld's (Men In Black) debut is brimming with great little dark jokes, both visual and verbal, in keeping with the family's iconic roots on paper and TV. These are supported by a manic yet also ethereal score by veteran Marc Shaiman, and a game cast on top form. Of note are the late great Julia and Huston, making a perfectly adorable/fascinatingly disturbing Gomez and Morticia, while Christopher Lloyd and a young Christina Ricci embody their respective roles flawlessly. In particular, the latter's dry humour leads to some of the film's best moments as she plays a young, disinterested psycho who is wonderfully straight faced in the face of all the madness.
Now of course, it's not all witches and bats: its resolution may come across as cheap fan-pleasing, given the changes they made to Fester in the context of this story, and I'd be lying if I didn't feel that at points the plot sort of vanishes just for the sake of the elaborate gags and tangents on the family's dynamics with each other, especially with Gomez and Morticia going on and on about how much they love each other. However, at least these aren't boring, and frankly, a comedy that actually focuses on well thought-out laughs is worth some respect.
Regardless, it still makes for a quite fun time, and a much more digestible dark comedy than most out there, especially for novices.
Really enjoyed this film maybe not quite as pc but nevertheless suits me, thing a.k.a. The hand reminds me of funnier times.
Cousin it ok why not, what's grandma all about?
Wednesday a real dark sense of humour.
My alternative Xmas.
I did question about a third of the way through the show if I may have been sent the wrong disc in error, then I saw the additional 'd' in Addams, this'll teach me to be more observant when making online purchases.
Nonetheless it was an enjoyable film and there's no doubt some similarities that can be drawn from the lives of the two Ad(d)ams men.
