Storyline

Gomez and Morticia Addams move to a derelict asylum in New Jersey, surrounded by a marsh and hidden by a fog at the top of a mountain, to raise a family. Thirteen years later, Gomez is teaching his son Pugsley the saber tradition of the Addams family while Wednesday is questioning her mother about the world outside the mansion gate. Meanwhile, TV host Margaux Needler is busy designing and building the planned community of Assimilation nearby. When the marsh is drained and the Addams home is revealed, Margaux decides to get rid of the Addams Family. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

This is definitely a children's movie.
19 October 2019 | by themoviedoctorSee all my reviews

I am an avid fan of the Addams family, and rewatch their movies each Halloween season. When I saw there was to be an animated re-make, I pictured it to be a mixture of the timelessness of their previous films and the entertainment of The Nightmare Before Christmas - fun for the whole family. However, as a young adult, I was not in the least bit entertained. The story line was definitely created for children, depicting the importance of inclusion/acceptance and family bond. Which I'm sure is very important for the younger generations. Yet I just was unable to connect with my long-standing enthusiasm for the Addams family during this movie.
