It may mostly be cosmetic, but this release is a reminder that some stories are lightning in a bottle, capturing a cast and a concept that works only once in a generation, and stand the test of time.

captures the family's droll humor with just the right mixture of morbidity and genuine care

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

An extended collection of one-liners and not much more.

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.

Despite inspired casting and nifty visual trappings, the eagerly awaited Addams Family figures as a major disappointment.

Funny feature film version of the classic TV show, and just as ghoulishly hilarious.
