Great entertainment for all the family,

This review is from: The Addams Family  [VHS] (VHS Tape)
This film has an uncanny knack for making the unnatural seem normal, and for making normality appear offensive. It is delightful in its absurdity and very cleverly put together as no detail was too small for notice. The actors were well chosen, as demonstrated by the electric vibe between Raul Julia and Angelica Huston, and by Christina Ricci (Wednesday), who dominates scenes on many occasions due to the superb dialogue (and her inimitable glare). In my opinion, this film is the best of the trilogy, although Addams Family Values is still well worth watching. (If watching both, note the return of the girl scout from the 'Addams Family' in the sequel.) This film is truly a family movie as it can appeal to both children and adults.
