Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Director Barry Sonnenfeld (Men in Black) brings his distinctly cartoonish sensibility to this feature film version of the old Charles Addams comic strip. Anjelica Huston was born to play Morticia Addams, matriarch of the ghoulish Addams clan, while the late Raul Julia is a very agreeable, lusty Gomez. But it's Christina Ricci who arguably steals the show as their stone-faced daughter, Wednesday. As is often the problem with adaptations of comics or television shows, somehow an original story has to be implemented that doesn't clutter things up. But clutter is an issue here as the script gets tangled on a lame plot concerning efforts to steal the Addams' house and fortune. Still, it's fun to see an ideal cast reanimate an old favorite. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars OF COURSE IT WAS GREAT! Sept. 21 2003
Format:DVD
Anyone my age would have to love this movie (I'm not telling how old that is) because we grew up seeing these characters every week on television. The plot......well someone is trying to take away the Addams house and fortune...interesting!
Anjelica Huston and Raul Julia were perfect for their roles and Raul Julia will be missed greatly by us all.
The children were great, spooky, ooky and everything you would expect to find in their personalities was there. Good job!
I enjoyed this one, it was quite entertaining!

5.0 out of 5 stars So much fun, just like the show! Oct. 18 2003
Format:DVD
I wouldn't have bet that anyone could pull it off. The original series had such a unique and whimsical voice, I assumed that a movie maker would either overplay the feel of the film or just miss the point entirely.
But Barry Sonnenfeld gets it! And the cast is top-notch. Christina Ricci is more menacing than words can express. The late Raul Julia nails the character of Gomez.
Wonderful in its humor and its overall feel, this one is a keeper to enjoy over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Addams Family June 20 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Anjelcia Houston and Raul Julia are thee perfect Gomez & Morticia. (Tim Curry and Dayrl Hannah aren't as good) Christina Ricci plays the part Wedsnday to prefection. Jimmy Workman is Pugsly, and barley does anything. Lurch, well, is good. But you can never say good or bad about Lurch. (Same with Thing) Christphoer Lloyd is the only Fester (alive).
I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am making a play in late october of it, entiled "The Addams Family: TOWN TROUBLE." It's before it's sequel, Addams Family Values. The storyline is that shortly after Fester arrives, the town thinks he's a monster. And the mayor and his wife, (not to mention the town) wants the Addams O.U.T. OUT! But the family has a trick or two up their sleeve, and they murder The Mayor and his wife. And Cousin Itt becomes Mayor, and allows Wedsnday to create chaos.
IT'S A GREAT FILM, NO DOUBT!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE ADDAMS FAMILY Feb. 1 2003
Format:DVD
Uncle Fester has been lost for years. The Addams brood has held yearly senaces on the anniversary of his disappearance, in the hopes of divulging his whereabouts. Amidst Lurch's dramatic strains upon the family's organ, Grandmama calls forth the spirit of Fester to commune. With the dramatic knocking, Thing races to the fromt door through the halls of the gloriously gloomy manse, to reveal a drenched Fester, "Come back from the dead".
A warm welcome regails him. but with him, an unexpected caller, a "Dr. Pinderschlaus".
From here on, a malicious plan unfolds to take over the manse, which has been attempted again, & again, & again.
The actors are perfectly cast, thus necromancing the delightful Addams tale once again to entertain us.
Yet for most of us, the Addams Family Legacy becomes much more than mere stories. Over & over again, I see "The Addams Mentality" as remarkably reflective of the Satanic viewpoint.
For instance, the joyful glee in which the Addams deal with the herd; naturally "dark" in thought, attracted to that which is arcane & occult. Obviously, the aesthetics are indicative of what many of us are comfortable with.
Even Karla LaVey mentioned on the "Speak of the Devil" segment, how the LaVey family was very much like the characterizations portrayed in Addams lore. I concurr. My own Noctuary Chambre is filled with the Satanic Aesthetic ----- skulls, trapezoidal angles, My preference for exotic pets, dim lighting, various diabolical knick-knacks, & even My attraction to women who carry the "Vampyric" type. All this, or course, with the additional artifacts of Pentagrams, gargoyle paraphernalia, obscure books, music, & movies. Mostly Satanic, &/or "Gothic" in content or appearance.

Format:VHS Tape
The Addams Family begins with a hearty chuckle, as a group of nauseatingly cheery carol singers are treated to a dose of Addams hospitality. The film is of course a 1990s revamp of the 1960s television series with the catchy refrain: "They're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky, they're altogether ooky." However, the film lacks the delicate balance between finesse and crudity that marked the original; perhaps this is the result when a cult show is turned into movie fodder for the masses.
The Addams' live in a decaying mansion that boasts such attractions as a graveyard, a swamp and a vault full of money. It is this last which attracts the attention of a crooked accountant and his unscrupulous client Mrs. Craven. Their plan is to install Mrs. Craven's son Gordon in the house as 'long-lost' Uncle Fester Addams, with the purpose of gaining access to the vault. Initially Gordon is all for this plan, but once he gets to know and like the family, he undergoes a crisis of confidence and must decide where his loyalties lie.
The plot may be depressingly formulaic, but fortunately it is in the Addams' nature to be quirky. The humour is generally quite fresh and clever - who would have picked the villain's ultra-conventional wife pairing off with hirsute (and definitely unconventional) Cousin Itt? But along with the hits, there are some equally spectacular misses, including almost everything involving Grandma Addams. The other female Addams' are excellent, especially young Christina Ricci as the perpetually sullen Wednesday. Ultimately though, you have to wonder if the mysterious and macabre charm of the Addams has lost something in its modernisation, and if perhaps they should have been left to rest in peace.
