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.
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!!!!!!!!!
