I rarely review movies. If I do one, it's an unusual case. And there is nothing more unusual than the Addams Family. I used to watch the original 1960s TV show [I guess I'm showing my age]. I even once had a book of the Addams Family cartoons reprinted from the New Yorker. I think it is safe that there is nothing Addams Family that I don't simply adore. And I adore this movie. I found myself almost forgetting it was animated. Once again, Wednesday steals the show--she always does. When I was a kid I looked a little too much like Pugsley, but I digress. At first I thought "What the hell?" as it starts off quite different than I expected. One family got up and left. They missed a really good movie. Patience is a virtue. It comes together quickly.
My sole and only criticism is Lurch. I have never liked any version of Lurch since the original TV show--that guy cracks me up. That's more my problem.. The Addams Family can't go wrong and I can't objectively review them, just give me more. That's all I want.
