Christina Ricci's fit for her role.

How come this movie is not on any of the lists? It's a great comedy! And, in a perverted sense, a family movie.

This movie should be given more credit. It's funny, original and different. It's a shame that different works out badly.

I watched and enjoyed the sitcom as a kid, but 1991's The Addams Family is so perfectly cast that is makes the amusing ghouls iconic all over again, and we're still seeing new material based on this version today. Christina Ricchi's star-making take on Wednesday Addams steals the show every scene she's in, but everyone's on point, especially Angelica Huston, Raul JuliĆ” and Christopher Lloyd, each giving their all to their extreme characters. Morticia has never been so sexy, Gomez so energetic, nor Fester so weird. This era in comedy often surprises me with the amount of slapstick, but it works here because the movie is a macabre cartoon. Notably, while a weaker film would have sent the Family into the "real world" as a premise, this one uses it as a brief third act complication. For most of it, we're happily in the strange world of the Addams, filled with quirky characters, cracking punchlines, and background visual gags - a lot of it memorable, much of it forgotten and rediscovered with a chuckle. I only have two criticisms. One is that they could have done a better job with the cemetery statues. The other is the jarring hip-hop soundtrack that's a real sign of the times, but doesn't fit the tone one jot.
