The Addams Family Values (1993)

The Addams' are back, and they have brought along a new addition to the family! After baby Pubert is introduced to the children, Pugsley and Wednesday Addams are sent away to camp when their sibling rivalry grows out of hand, while Uncle Fester is seduced by the nanny, a gold-digging con who plans to kill him for his fortune! THE ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES plays up all of the same great humor from the original, providing consistent laughs and more deliriously entertaining performances from the entire cast. Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston are at their best, as always. By tossing the two Addams children into a summer camp filled with white bred teen socialites, director Barry Sonnenfeld has given Christina Ricci many more opportunities to shine in her fiendish portrayal of Wednesday Addams. Joan Cusack joins the cast as Debbie, the "Black Widow," as well, adding her own over-the-top antics to the bunch. THE ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES comes as close as possible to topping the original in a worthy sequel that fans are sure to enjoy!

Rating: 9/10.

  1. When I was a kid, I had a mad crush on Wednesday Addams in this film.
