The Addams Family steps out of Charles Addams' cartoons. They live with all of the trappings of the macabre (including a detached hand for a servant) and are quite wealthy. Added to this mix is a crooked accountant and his loan shark and a plot to slip the shark's son into the family as their long-lost Uncle Fester. Can the false Fester find his way into the vault before he is discovered?Written by

When the family must leave the house after the court hearing, Fester looks at them as they walk away. In the closeup shots, he is leaning out of the window. The sash window above him has two panes of glass and is four layers of wood above the windowsill. In the long shot, there is a single pane of glass and the bottom of the window is six boards above the windowsill. See more »

What are you, darling? Where's your costume?
This is my costume. I'm a homicidal maniac. They look just like everybody else.

The McDonald's release version omits a scene in which Lurch attempts to sell vacuum cleaners when the family is forced to leave their house. See more »
A good, nay great, movie version to the classic 60s series. Raul Julia is great as Gomez, as is Christopher Lloyd as Fester. The story is sound, pretty much better than the sequel. This is a comedy with slightly dark themes, but that doesn't mean the family can not enjoy it. Barry Sonnenfeld is a genius.
