They're creepy and they're predictable? Mysterious and rather tame?

Ooky the Addamses may be, subversive they ain't; it plays like a paean to the nuclear family.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Cinematographer-turned-director Barry Sonnenfeld and screenwriters Larry Wilson and Caroline Thompson haven't solved the problem of how to construct a film around a one-joke concept.

Basically plotless, this big-screen transfer of the cult TV series has some good vignettes and some good performances by Anjelica Huston, Christina Ricci and others.

I suppose there's a certain kooky charm, but talk about dated...

The film's aimlessness and repetitiveness eventually become draining.
